"Chicken Ballontine" step by step
- De-bone the chicken. This step is incredibly difficult to describe, I would suggest watching a video on YouTube. Basically you want all the bones out, without dismantling the chicken..
- Start by cutting out the wishbone, cutting off the tips of the wings and then cut the back of the chicken open. Cut the wings and legs and pull out the bones by breaking them, cutting around and scraping away the meat. Then tear out the carcass..
- Now it's time to make the stuffing. You can create what ever type of stuffing you like. With this chicken I combine chopped green apple, fresh cilantro, fresh parsley, lemon zest and 1 egg..
- Season the bird inside and out with the dry ingredients. Insert your stuffing into the legs and spread over the breast meat..
- Fold the chicken and tie it back together carefully using butchers twine..
- Pan sear the chicken on all sides with veg oil before baking it in the oven for 1 hour at 375..
- Once cooked let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes before carving. This will allow the natural juices to redistribute back into the meat..
