Tempting leftovers are an added bonus, as are the carcass and giblets: perfect for creating light broths or tasty stocks and gravies.
As a nation, we've grown used to eating a lot of chicken. It's tasty, lean and versatile so it's easy to understand why it's so popular. An active life keeps our chickens healthy and results in richly flavoured meat with a well-defined texture.

Brush chicken with butter; season with salt, pepper, and the rosemary.
Put orange halves in the chicken cavity.
Roast in a preheated 325 F oven for about 2 1/2 hours, or use time guide on the chicken packaging. A thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh should produce a temperature of at least 165 F.
Remove chicken from the roasting pan and tent with foil to keep warm.
Set the pan with drippings on a burner over medium heat. Sprinkle cornstarch into the pan drippings, and cook, stirring, until smooth. Remove from heat and gradually stir in remaining ingredients until smooth.
Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly, and boil for 2 minutes.
