Ingredients

Chicken:

No-stick cooking spray
1 (3 to 3 1/2-pound) chicken, quartered
Salt and pepper
3 tablespoons orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 tablespoon honey

Dressing:

3 tablespoons margarine
2/3 cup sliced celery
2/3 cup chopped onion
1 medium carrot, shredded
1 1/4 cups (8 ounces) pitted dried plums, quartered
4 (6 1/4-inch) matzo sheets, broken into 1/2-inch pieces
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) chicken broth
2 tablespoons orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 1/2 teaspoons ground allspice
1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper


Directions

Chicken:

Heat oven ot 375°. Lightly coat 13 x 9-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Season chicken with salt and pepper, as desired; arrange, skin sides down, in pan. Bake on lower oven rack 30 minutes. In small bowl, mix orange juice concentrate and honey; set aside.

Dressing:

Meanwhile, in 3-quart saucepan, melt margarine over medium heat. Add celery, onion, and carrot; cook and stir 5 minutes. Add dried plums, matzo, chicken broth, orange juice concentrate, allspice, thyme, salt and pepper; cook and stir 2 minutes or until some of the liquid is absorbed. Lightly coat 1 1/2-quart baking dish or 4 individual baking dishes with cooking spray. (If using individual dishes, place in shallow baking pan.) Spoon dried plum dressing into baking dish; cover tightly with aluminum foil.

Brush both sides of chicken with honey mixture. Continue cooking 30 to 40 minutes or until juices run clear when pierced with a knife, brushing again with honey mixture, halfway through cooking time. (If chicken becomes too brown; cover loosely with foil during last half of baking.) While chicken cooks, bake dressing on upper oven rack, allowing 30 minutes for large dish and 20 minutes for individual dishes.
