Roast chicken with stuffing is the next of our dishes. With crispy potatoes it’s just so delicious. Grandma lifts up her glass and says, ‘Let’s make a toast … to Lulu and Harry – for this wonderful roast!’

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 1/2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
1 celery stalk, finely diced
2 spring onions, finely sliced
1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
1 lemon rind, finely grated
1 egg, lightly beaten
30g butter, melted
1 x 1.8kg free-range chicken
20g butter, melted
6 medium-large potatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Mix breadcrumbs, celery, spring onions, parsley, lemon rind, egg and 30 g butter in a bowl. Remove the fat from inside the chicken, rinse inside and out with water and pat dry with paper towel. Fill the chicken cavity with stuffing and tie the legs together with kitchen string.
  2. Place the chicken on a rack in a roasting pan. Add enough water to reach 2 cm up the side of the pan (the water should not touch the chicken). Brush the chicken with the butter and roast for 80–90 minutes, basting occasionally, until cooked through (if you pierce the thigh with a skewer, the juices should be clear, not red or pink). If the water evaporates while the chicken is roasting, add a little more.
  3. Meanwhile, peel and quarter the potatoes. Pat dry with paper towel and put in a large roasting pan. Drizzle with the oil and cook for 45 minutes, or until tender and golden brown.
  4. Allow the chicken to rest for 10 minutes, then carve and serve with the stuffing, potatoes and your favourite green vegetable.
