If they’re available, choose Rome Beauty apples for this recipe. Romes have a somewhat flat, mealy taste when eaten raw, but their flavor develops a wonderful richness when cooked. They’re available from October until early Summer. The Golden Delicious, the Cortland, the Jonathan, and the Granny Smith are also good for baking. The Red Delicious apples, by the way, are only fair for cooking.

1 chicken, cut in serving pieces (about 3 pounds)

Ground pepper to taste

vegetable cooking spray

2 medium apples, cored and sliced

1 large onion, sliced

1/2 cup apple cider or juice

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

2 teaspoons brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

Preheat oven to 3500F. Sprinkle chicken pieces with pepper to taste.

Spray 13 by 9-inch baking dish with vegetable cooking spray. Arrange chicken in baking dish; scatter apple and onion slices around and on top of chicken. In cup, combine cider, lemon juice, oil, sugar and allspice; pour over chicken. Bake, uncovered, for about 1 hour or until chicken is cooked through and apples are tender, turning pieces once during cooking and basting occasionally with drippings. To serve, remove chicken from pan juices and spoon apples and onions on top.

Pick, soak, and boil the birds with the same care as for roasting.

Make a crust as for chicken pie; lay the birds in whole, and season

with pepper, salt, bits of butter, and a little sweet marjoram; flour

them thickly; then strain the water in which they were boiled, and

fill up the vessel two-thirds full with it; cover with the crust; cut

hole in the center. Bake one hour and a half.

Put the giblets from any bird in the saucepan with
sufficient stock or water to cover them and boil for three hours, adding
an onion and a few peppercorns while cooking. Take them out, and when
they are quite tender strain the liquor into another pan and chop up the
gizzards, livers, and other parts into small pieces. Take a little of
the thickening left at the bottom of the pan in which a chicken or goose
has been braised, and after the fat has been taken off, mix it with the
giblet liquor and boil until dissolved. Strain the sauce, put in the
pieces of giblet, and serve hot.

In the early 1970s, 75% of the chicken sold was whole chicken. Today it’s less than 25%. If you want to substitute all legs or all breasts or some other combination, look at the table in the Introduction, page s 12-13 for a chart showing equivalent amounts of the different parts.
