Roast Orange-Stuffed Chicken

Ingredients

3 lb.) broiler fryer chickens
1 (11 oz.) can mandarin orange segments, drained
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
2 med. apples, chopped (about 2 c.)
6 slices bacon

Preparation

1
Stuff chickens just before roasting, not ahead of time. To prepare stuffing, toss orange segments, walnuts, apple and stuffing mix. Add orange marmalade and toss.
2
Fill each wishbone area with about 1/4 cup stuffing. Fasten neck skins to backs with skewers. Fold wings across backs with tips touching. Fill each body cavity with about 2 cups stuffing. (Stuffing will expand while cooking.) Tie drumsticks to tails.
3
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Place chicken breast-sides up on rack in shallow roasting pan or jelly roll pan (15 1/2 x 10 1/2 x 1 inch). Crisscross 2 bacon slices on top of each chicken. Do not add water.
