Finally got around to roasting a chook in our new oven. And it was THE BEST CHOOK EVER!
Well, the best home-roasted chook ever (our local chicken shop is pretty good).
But it also had the best stuffing ever. EVER.
So here for posterity (and mostly so that I don’t forget) is the recipe for the best stuffing ever:
Three slices wholemeal bread, grilled on low until grown and crispy and torn up roughly into bits (so it will blend nicely)
Six half-rashers of bacon
Stick of celery, chopped roughly into a few bits
Half an onion, or three tablespoons onion powder if you don’t happen to have one handy (I always grind mine “fresh” from dried onion flakes, I find it’s tastier)
One tablespoon mixed herbs
Half tablespoon dried spicey thyme
50g butter, melted
Shove in chicken before cooking.
