Nan got every dirty mind working overtime without even trying. *G*

Tip for suthern's dinner guests: When I meet you at the door and my greeting includes the words "don't let me forget I have bread in the oven"... pay heed! LOL

Apparently, the part of my brain that thinks that buying and addressing cards somehow gets them stamped and mailed without further effort also thinks bread can open the oven door and take itself out in a timely manner?? Same with the very last batch of cookies, no matter how many of their buddies are on the counter cooling nicely... *sigh*

I got a really good recipe for roast chicken, but I guess it could be altered to do the Thanksgiving turkey...

When I found this recipe I thought it was perfect for people, like me, who just are not sure how to tell when poultry is cooked thoroughly but not dried out. Give this a try.

BAKED STUFFED CHICKEN
6-7 lb. chicken
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing
1 cup uncooked popcorn
Salt/pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush chicken well with melted butter, salt, and pepper. Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn. Place in baking pan with the neck end toward the back of the oven. Listen for popping sounds. When the chicken's backside blows the oven door open and the chicken flies across the room, it is done.

And, you thought I couldn't cook

Bec reminded me of another--there is a recipe for "drunken chicken" that involves about 1/3 of a can of beer, a barbecue pit, and said chicken. The idea is to um, insert the remainders of the can of beer into the chicken...and stand it up on the pit, and the beer bubbles and boils, both flavoring and tenderizing the boid. sigh...my bright idea, was to use a home-brewed, heavy "wheat/raspberry" beer...ugh, I forgot that the alcohol content of this particular brew was almost triple the average.

So, yes, after a few of these homebrews, and the chicken was just bubbling almost as happily as the cook? That's right, Bec...CHICKEN GO BOOM.

Serenity's Helpful Hints for the success of this dish?

--the beer should go into the chicken, and NOT the chef.

--if you are using a smoker/style, barbecue pit? open the vents. (DUH)

--wear appropriate safey gear, including hardhat and protective eyewear.

or...just

--DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!

or...

--don't try this ANYWHERE. sigh.

<---it could have been ugly...
