Roasted chicken doesn’t have to be boring. Add some nutrient dense chicken liver to the stuffing and serve it smothered in Paleo BBQ Sauce for a divine dinner.
Chicken is great because it’s cheap and extremely versatile. Even organic, free range chicken can be found for a reasonable price if you know where to look.
Join a CSA
This chicken recently came in our meat CSA. When I was preparing the chicken, I opened it up and found a packet of goodies inside including the chicken heart, chicken liver and chicken neck.
I added the neck to the exterior of the dish and cooked it alongside the whole chicken then chopped up the heart and liver and combined them with some vegetables for my stuffing.
Seasoning Your Bird
Once you’ve chosen your bird, you can flavor it with your favorite seasonings and coat it in your favorite fat to provide a crunchy exterior.
Because chicken is so easy to cook, once you’ve stuffed it, you can just pop it in the oven and move onto something else. Whether you’re finishing your favorite book or preparing something tasty to serve as a side dish, this recipe makes it easy for you to multi-task once the bird is in the oven.
Dress It Up With Homemade Sauce
You don’t have to make your own BBQ sauce for this recipe, but we do recommend it.
While store-bought condiments are certainly convenient, they usually come packed with all sorts of questionable ingredients, including vegetable oils and high-fructose corn syrup.
Making your own is quick and easy and provides the peace of mind that comes with knowing absolutely everything you’re eating.
And if you’re not a fan of spicy sauce, you can adjust the amount of seasonings you add, to adjust for your own palate.
