Deboned & Stuffed Chicken a Hit Again

For those of you that want to try this deboning technique, it definitely gets easier with practice.

I boned another one today and had no problems.


I decided to try another kind of stuffing and it turned out PDG too. I started with fresh spinach (cooked and water squeezed out), shallots, shiitake mushrooms and roasted pine nuts, but soon realized I did not have enough stuffing.


I cut up some white bread and toasted it in the oven...


... and added some Greek feta.


I coated it with EVOO infused with rosemary and then coated it with DP, Shaking the tree. I cooked it indirect at about 450 until it was 160 internal. I used pecan for some smoke flavor.


The stuffing expanded a bit and broke the skin at the legs, but it did not hurt the flavor.

    Bob, tried this technique from your original post and love it. Had to sterilize the mouse from my wet chicken hands replaying the video a couple of times. :blush:

    Egged a chicken for chicken salad...night shift dish to share at work. Sans stuffing, and it still was easy to cube up after removing the partial leg bone and skin.
    Huge fan of this technique. Can't wait to try stuffin' some birds. B)
