Let's Make It
Heat oven to 325°F.
Mix hot water and margarine in large bowl until margarine is melted. Add stuffing mix; stir just until moistened. Set aside. (Do not stuff chicken until ready to bake.)
Stuff chicken lightly with prepared stuffing; close openings with skewers and string. Place, breast-side up, on rack in baking pan; sprinkle with thyme.
Bake 1 hour 40 min. or until chicken is done (165°F) and stuffing is heated through (165ºF), basting occasionally with pan juices.
Serve with a smart side, such as your favorite hot steamed vegetables, to round out the meal.
Serve with sautéed fresh vegetables and a cold glass of fat-free milk.
Substitute a 3- to 4-lb. roasting chicken for the 5-lb. roasting chicken; stuff as directed. Spoon any remaining stuffing into small baking dish; cover and refrigerate until ready to bake. Bake chicken 1 hour to 1 hour 20 min. or until chicken is done, basting occasionally and placing the remaining stuffing in the oven for the last 30 min. of the chicken baking time.
