This was soooo good. I didn't have marmalade so I subbed with honey. This is tender, flavorful, and wonderful. Paula knows her stuff.

Ok there is a difference in a baking hen and a fryer hen. A roasting or baking hen usually takes longer to cook. That may be why some of you are having a chicken over done.
