Amish Roast Recipe

Can you post a recipe for Amish "Roast"?  The recipe that I am looking for is made  with chicken and bread kind of like a stuffing with chicken in it

Re: Amish Roast Recipe

Thanks for the recipe! This is exactly what I was looking for.  I'm still saving up to buy the cookbooks. Are they as good as I think they will be? Do you have all of the cookbooks?

Out of curiosity, which one is your favorite?

When I started reading the Amish Cook a couple years ago or so, I (foolishly) went to eBay looking for the cookbooks.  (I didn't know Kevin had a website or that they were available for sale here).  I did buy the hardcover book on ebay (which isn't sold on this site, but you can get it on Amazon), which is really good.  There are recipes, stories, and snippets of the column from Elizabeth.  I also really love "The Best of the Amish Cook" volumes 1 & 2.  Since I got a late start on the column, reading these gave me a chance to catch up on the years Elizabeth Coblentz wrote the column.  The other books are great, also, but are pretty much strickly cookbooks. 

After we moved to our new house in June, my husband accidentally knocked the head off of my Pillsbury Doughboy cookie jar and busted it.  I was so angry at him, so to make me feel better he let me order the whole set of cookbooks Wink

The three I mentioned are my favorite far.... but I would have to recommend owning a full set!  LOL  They are nice, calm reading before bed.

*Hint to Kevin.... maybe there will be a volume 3 one of these days??? Laughing)

Lovina's Roast Chicken recipe for msbytes

"Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it, you can never get it back."


msbytes, when I read your post, I knew that recipe sounded familiar.  I found Lovina's recipe for something like that on pg 34 of "The Amish Cook Treasury."

Roast Chicken

  • 3 whole chickens
  • 6 1/2 quarts bread crumbs
  • 1 lb margarine, divided in half
  • 3 cups celery
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons parsley flakes
  • 6 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic or onion salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprike
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 teaspoons poultry seasoning

Cook chickens tull tender.  De-bone chicken and reserve broth.  Brown bread crumbs in 1/2 lb margarine, stirring constantly.  Combine bread crumbs and all other ingredients except chicken.  Mix well and add chicken broth till mixture is very moist.  Put chicken meat in bottom of a large roast pan.  Cover with bread mixture.  Roast in a slow oven till golden brown (250 degrees for 1 1/2 to 2 hours).

 Hope that helps!
