  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning


  1. Preheat oven to 325° F.
  2. Shake flour into roasting bag.
  3. Slice the onion. Put half the onion slices in the chicken cavity.
  4. Place the bag in a roasting pan and add remaining onion slices. Place the chicken on top of the onion.
  5. Sprinkle the chicken with salt, pepper and poultry seasoning. Close the bag according to package directions and slit the bag in 6 places.

Helpful hints

  • Instead of poultry season try a tablespoon of combined fresh thyme, oregano, marjoram, or several sprigs rosemary. If using fresh herbs place some in the cavity and some between the skin of the chicken and the breast meat.
  • Add peeled carrots and celery to bag, if desired.
  • The whole fresh or frozen chicken does not have phosphate additives frequently found in store-roasted chicken.
  • For a lower or higher protein diet adjust the portion to match your meal plan.
