Roast Chicken with Glutinous Rice Stuffing

Monday, 25 January 2010

I had to try it when I saw it on Rita's blog. Her bird is just amazing - the colour and so evenly browned! Her version was an adaptation from Nookcook's recipe. Noobcook's East-Meets-West version was also tempting but I couldn't resist that gorgeous brown skin. I did a little changes myself as well, rubbed chili oil all over the chicken...spicy goodness...The sweet and salty skin was really deilcious. The meat so tender and moist. The rice so flavourful...

  • Remove bird from oven, baste it and continue roasting at 200°C for another hour or until done (the chicken was about 2 kg). Check by piercing the the thigh with a knife, juices should run clear. You may have to cover with foil half way through to prevent it from burning.
