Posts Tagged ‘roast chicken’

Instead of roast turkey, I made roast chicken for christmas dinner. Personally, I’m not a fan of turkey. I find the meat a bit too tough for my liking. Krystal mentioned that in US there’s this new thing they make for christmas. A turkey is stuffed with a duck and the duck is then stuffed with a chicken. It is then roasted and served. I thought this was pretty cool. Who knows, I might give it a go next christmas! 🙂


  • A whole chicken
  • Fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • Fresh tarragon, finely chopped
  • Lemon juice
  • Butter
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 green apple
  • 1 onion
  • 1 lemon


  • Preheat the oven to 160C. Wash the chicken.
  • Combine melted butter, tarragon, rosemary, lemon juice, salt and pepper together.
  • Spread the inside of the chicken with a little of the butter mixture. Rub the chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Cut apple, onion and lemon in half. Stuff the chicken with it. 
  • Spread the butter mixture all over the chicken.
  • Place in oven and bake. Constantly turn the chicken over to allow it to brown evenly. Bask it with the butter mixture occasionally.
  • When chicken is cook, remove from oven. Allow it to rest for awhile. Remove the stuffing from inside. Carve and serve.
