“This is an easy recipe I got from a cookbook. "Old Fashioned Country Cooking" found at Cracker Barrel. I was a beginner or close to it when I tried it and it is no fail. I always liked it best because it is an one-pot meal and you can forget about it for 2 hours. The chicken is always moist.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the vinegar in the bottom of a deep ovenproof casserole dish or Dutch oven with a cover. Add chicken and surround with vegetables. Add seasonings to taste. Cover tightly and roast at 350* for 1 hour.
  2. The meat will be moist and juicy without having a strong vinegar taste.
  3. I learned to not go by the cooking time of this recipe. It is best to go by the estimated time on the chicken wrapper for the weight of the chicken.
  4. I could never find a 3 1/2-pound chicken, only larger.
