1 (2 and 1/2 lb. to 3 lb.) broiler-fryer chicken
3 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered, or 6 new potatoes
6 medium carrots, bias-sliced into 1/2" pieces
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup prepared mustard
2 tablespoons margarine
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
2 medium apples, cored
Rinse chicken, and pat dry. Tie legs to tail, twist wing tips under back. Place, breast side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan (I've made this without the rack). Brush with oil. Roast chicken, uncovered, in a 375 degree oven for one hour.
Cook potatoes and carrots in boiling water for 20-25 minutes, or til nearly tender. Drain.
For glaze, in a saucepan combine honey, mustard, onion, curry powder, garlic salt, red pepper, and ginger. Bring to boiling, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; set aside.
Discard fat in roasting pan. Cut apples into wedges. Arrange potatoes, carrots, and apples around chicken in the pan. Spoon glaze over poultry, vegetables, and apples. Roast for 15-20 minutes more or til chicken is no longer pink, the drumsticks move easily in their sockets, and the vegetables are tender. Makes 6 servings.
