  • 1 x #16 or #18 whole chicken
  • 2-3 tablespoons rice bran oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon each: chopped fresh rosemary, oregano, thyme
  • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • assorted vegetables, optional.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Pat the chicken dry. Sprinkle inside and out with salt and pepper.
  2. To make stuffing, sauté the onion in 1 tablespoon of the oil, until soft. Combine with the herbs, breadcrumbs and egg. Fill the cavity of the chicken with the stuffing. Tie the bird neatly with string. Place in a roasting pan the drizzle with the remaining oil. 
  3. Roast for about 1 ½ hours or according to the packet instructions. Peeled potatoes, kumara, pumpkin, parsnip and/or quartered red onions could be added about 45 minutes before the end of cooking. 

Serves 4-6. Made in approximately 1 ¾ hours.
