POULET AUX PEACHES

This recipe is from my late mother's 'The Workbasket' magazine collection. This recipe was in the August 1970 book.


2 1/2 to 3 lb broiler-fryer chicken
1 1/4 cups corn flake crumbs
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely diced celery
1 can (3 or 4 oz)sliced mushrooms
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
heavy duty aluminum foil
8 canned cling peach halves

Melt butter in medium-size saucepan. Add onion and celery; cook until tender, but not brown. Add mushrooms with liquid, salt and poultry seasoning; bring to a boil. Remove from heat; add crumbs and toss lightly. Stuff and truss chicken. Place chicken in center of a 24-inch length of heavy duty aluminum foil. Brush chicken with additional melted butter. Make double fold of foil over breast and at each end. Place in shallow roasting pan. Roast in a hot oven, 450 degrees, for 20 minutes per pound. Open foil and flatten in pan. Place drained peaches, cut side up, on foil around chicken. Roast 20 minutes longer to brown chicken and heat peaches. Place chicken on heated platter; garnish with peach halves. Makes 4 to 5 servings.
