EASY CHICKEN RECIPES for Roast Chicken
Serves 4 - 5
This chicken recipe has always been a firm favorite, and
occasionally I will pull out all the stops and debone the chicken as
well, but then that is only when the spirit moves, and that hasn't
happened of late.
Anyway, back to a meal that has traditionally been served for
Sunday lunches and remember that a free-range bird will make all the
difference. One word of warning to novice cooks - if you are buying a
bird from the local supermarket, don't forget to take out the giblets
from the body cavity. These are usually found inside the cavity, in a
plastic bag. A friend once, who didn't know they were there, cooked the
chicken as is, and served up the bird to her new mother-in-law! Now, if
she had stuffed the bird, she would have known they were there!
1 chicken, 1.8 kg
3 T oil
60 g butter
2 Cups soft breadcrumbs
1 shallot or small onion, chopped
60 g butter
2 T chopped celery
1 T chopped walnuts
4 T chopped bacon
1 small egg, beaten
Salt and Pepper to taste
Turn the oven on to 190°C. Wash and pat-dry the chicken. Mix
the oil and butter together and rub into the chicken skin. Lightly
In a pan melt the butter and fry the onion and bacon until
soft. Remove and place in a small bowl and mix the rest of the
ingredients together. Add enough of the beaten egg to just bind the
mixture together. Stuff the body cavity with the mixture. If you have
any left-over stuffing, carefully loosen the skin around the breast
area and place the stuffing under the loosened skin.
Bake in the oven for about an hour and a half, or until the
juices run clear when pierced with a skewer. Serve with roast potatoes
and vegetables of your choice.

EASY CHICKEN RECIPES for Simple Chicken Gravy
is simple enough to do, however, it is amazing how so
many people just can't seem to get it right! With this simple gravy recipe
you can't go wrong.
After you have removed the chicken from the roasting dish,
drain off most of the oil, except for about a tablespoon. Take enough
flour, about 4 tablespoons to soak up the oil and spread it all around
the dish. Add about 2 teaspoons of gravy powder to the flour and spread
around the dish.
Now add about a half a cup of cold water to the dish
and stir vigorously to get rid of any lumps and to get those tasty
brown bits off the bottom of the dish. Add more cold water if
necessary. You only want to add enough cold water to get rid of the
lumps, nothing else.
Now add half a chicken stock cube dissolved in
another half cup of water, but this time the water should be boiled
first. Add to the gravy mixture and heat slowly over a low heat. If you
need to add any more water to thin your gravy out, take it from your
cooked vegetables. This will add vitamins to your gravy that would
otherwise, go down the drain. Season to taste and serve.
