Balsamic Roast Chicken
1 - 5 to 6 lb. Roasting Chicken
2 Tbsp. Chopped Rosemary
2 Tbsp. Salt
3 Cloves chopped garlic
1 Red Onion, Chopped
1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
1/4 cup Red Wine
Heat oven to 350. Clean chicken - remove neck, giblets, and liver. Rinse bird and pat dry.
Rub the rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper on the outside of the bird. Let sit for about an hour. Actually you can do this up to 24 hours in advance so the flavours take hold. Cover and place chicken in the refrigerator.
Sprinkle the bottom of the roasting pan with the chopped onions. Then place the chicken on top of the onions. Pour the balsamic vinegar and the wine over the chicken. Roast in the oven for approximately 2 hours (or 20 minutes per pound). Carve the chicken and serve with the balsamic and onion mixture from the bottom of the pan.
