How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  • Rub butter over the entire chicken. Season with salt, pepper and thyme.
  • Place the carrots inside the cavity, and tie the legs together.
  • Place the chicken breast side up in a roasting pan. Lay bacon strips across the top of the chicken, and secure with toothpicks.
  • Sprinkle with paprika.
  • Pour the beef broth into the roasting pan - do not pour over the bacon.
  • Roast for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, the reduce the heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Baste with some of the broth. Continue to roast for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until the internal temperature is 180 degrees F (82 degrees C) when taken in the thickest part of the thigh.
  • Baste every 15 minutes with the broth.
  • Remove the bacon and discard toothpicks.
  • Roast the chicken for 15 more minutes to brown the skin.
  • Transfer to a serving platter, and remove the ties.
  • You may eat the bacon, but it is best to discard the carrots.
