1 chicken, lg. enough for your whole family

Some butter or margarine

Salt and pepper

Rice – I prefer Uncle Ben’s boil-in-bag style (enough for your family)

Wash chicken.

Put several pats of butter or margarine on skin.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Bake in 350 degree oven for approximately 1 hour.

Baste chicken after 30 minutes.

Rice – follow directions on boil-in-bag rice – its quick, easy and delicious.

Gravy – when chicken is done, remove it from the pan.

Heat drippings over medium heat on stove.

Thoroughly mix 1/4 cup flour with 1/2 cup of water.

Gradually add this to chicken drippings as they boil.

You may not need all the flour and water mixture, mix to taste.

Boil slowly for 10 minutes on low.

Serve hot.
