Grandma's Roasted Chicken in a Bag

Preheat oven to 400.

Wash a whole organic chicken and blot it dry with a paper towel.  Salt inside and out then stuff with a chopped onion and several sprigs of rosemary. Coat the outside of the chicken with paprika and slide it inside a clean paper bag on a cookie sheet.  Close up the bag end making sure the chicken isn't touching the paper.   Bake in the lower part of oven for an hour or so.  Remove and serve inside paper bag on a platter.  Side dishes could include blanched and salted green beans tossed with arugula and dressed with olive oil.  If you can eat cheese, top green bean salad with a little Parmesan.

Tasty and rustic, paper bag and all.  Eat deeply of good food. What more is there to life?
