For this recipe you will need :
- 1 bird ready to be stuffed
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 chorizo ring 225-250 gr (read the ingredients and make sure is made without sugar or dextrose)
- 2 shallots
- 1 can of cannellini beans
- 1/2 cup semi- dried tomatoes chopped
- salt , pepper to taste
- 1 lemon
- 400 ml white wine
- 400 ml water
- 2 tsp paprika
- 5-6 springs of fresh thyme
Place the chicken in a roasting pan . Add the water , wine and the fresh thyme. Cover it with aluminium foil and place in a preheated oven.
Slow cook it for about 2 hours more or less depending on the size of the bird .Mine was quite small and I found that 2 h was a bit too much and even the stuffing was more than needed ( I ate it with a spoon while waiting for the chicken to roast :)) ). The recipe is ideal for at least 1.5 kg chicken.
After about 1 hour and 30 min remove the foil so the skin will get brown and crispy. When ready place the chicken on a wooden platter or any dish of your choice. Remove the lemon cut in two and squeeze the inside in the juices from the roasting pan. Strain it and use into the stuffing and on top of the chicken while serving.
Enjoy it with a spoonful of stuffing and some green salad.
