Lemon and thyme chicken

This recipe is meant to be quick, easy and utterly delicious. No time for mucking about, get it going, bung it in the oven, take it out and get stuck in. save me the wings though. This is better without gravy as it detracts from the thyme and lemon flavoured juices that will be coming from the chicken. Make sure crusty bread and salad is available on the table!

Lemon and thyme chicken


Easy stuffing mix

5-6 pieces of day old bread, crusts removed and cut up finely
1-2 eggs
1 red onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
Handful of sage, finely chopped
Bunch of thyme, or lemon thyme, finely chopped
Splash of hot water
Pinch of salt/pepper
Teaspoon of chopped red chilli, optional

Throw it all in a bowl and mix up thoroughly with your hands, adding the water bit by bit until you get a good sticky consistency. If time permits, precook the onion, herbs, garlic and chilli, then add to the rest. Stuff it in the chook, or in a separate oven dish (if your chook has a lemon in it) and cook along side the chicken.

For a really delicious stuffing mix, add diced feta and sun-dried tomatoes.
