Christopher Walken's Chicken on a Throne

1 whole chicken
8 pears
2 cups of salt
1 cup of pepper


You need a chicken throne for this (see the video). Cut off the fat of the chicken and put in at the top of the throne. Seat the chicken on the throne. Pull back the flap and secure with a tooth pick. Cover the chicken with salt (it should come off during cooking) and then dust with pepper.

For the pears, slice off the bottoms so they can stand upright. Skin them a bit, but leave some on (to your preference).

Get a cooking pan to put all of this on, grease with vegetable oil or pam. Place the throned chicken in the center, and the pears around it. Keep the sliced bottoms and use as coasters for the main pears so they don't stick. Place in pre-heated (400 degrees) oven for 60-75 minutes.
