Honey Baked Chicken

I just love a baked or roasted chicken, and it can be very versatile, tender and delicious. Sometimes a baked chicken can be just a bit more moist than a roasted chicken depending on the recipe. This Honey Baked Chicken is so moist and tender, it falls from the bone and sits in a most delicious gravy that forms while baking. The flavor of this chicken will have you returning to the recipe over and over again.

1 stalk celery, chopped
1/2 apple, chopped
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup apple juice
3/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon poultry season

Directions
Wash the chicken inside and out, then dry the entire chicken on the outside.
Place the chopped carrot, onion, celery, and apple inside the cavity of the chicken.
Rub the entire outside of the chicken with the olive oil.
Place the chicken into a heavy dutch oven.
Mix the apple juice and honey together and pour it very slowly over the chicken.
Mix the poultry season, salt and pepper together, then sprinkle over the chicken.
Cover the chicken and bake in a pre-heated 425 degree oven for 1-1/2 hours.
Remove the chicken from the oven and let the chicken set for at least 10 minutes before carving.
Enjoy!
