Wash whole chickens under running cold water and carefully dry with paper towels. Split chickens in half, removing the back and save to make the stock. Place chicken half’s in a large bowl or pan. Make Mama’s marinade and marinate for 6 hours or overnight. Make Mama’s Seasoning Mix. Melt butter and add the olive oil to make Mama’s Butter. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place in a shallow roasting pan. Brush on Mama’s Butter and bake in a pre-heated 375 degree oven. Baste every 10 minutes with Mama’s Butter for the next half hour. Next, sprinkle lightly with the remaining Mama’s Seasoning and baste one more time with Mama’s Butter. Put the chicken back in the oven for about 20 minutes or until fully cooked.

Corn Bread Stuffing
Melt butter in a large heavy pot. Stir in the celery, onions, and cook for 5 minutes. Add the stock, herbs, and seasoning. Stir in the cubed bread, corn bread, and grated bread. Place in shallow baking pan, butter the top of the stuffing and bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.

Chef Larry’s Notes: Chicken should always be cooked until the juices run clear; 160 degrees for the breast and 170 degrees for the thing and leg sections. Fresh chicken stock is the best, but a good canned chicken stock can be used when fresh is not available. This chicken goes great with homemade gravy; visit for my gravy recipe.
