Cooking Directions:

Take chicken and clean in cold water, pat it dry and place it in the roasting pan. Sprinkle the outside of the bird with salt and cracked pepper – don’t be stingy. Cut the apple and orange in half, place on a plate and microwave for 30 seconds. Take out of microwave and insert the apple and orange halves and sprigs of tarragon in the chicken. Add enough water to make 1/2 inch deep. Cook in preheated oven at 350 degrees until the bird ‘s white meat temperature is 170 degrees, approximately
