IMG_6730I really wish you could smell the aroma in my home…Roasted Apple Stuffed Chicken. I took my Mom’s original recipe and made it gluten free and Paleo by using apples in place of bread for the stuffing…DeLISH!!

Ingredients:

  • 1 roasting chicken (Approximately 3 1/2 lbs)
  • 1 large orange
  • sea salt and pepper
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup red onion diced
  • 1/2 cup celery chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 apples, unpeeled, cored and diced
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped finely
  • 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Remove any organs from the chicken’s cavity. Rinse the bird with cold water and pat dry.
  3. Grate the zest from the orange and set aside. Cut the orange in half and rub all over the chicken. Liberally salt and pepper the entire bird.
  4. Melt the coconut oil in a skillet. Add onion and celery and cook over low heat until tender. Add garlic and apples and sauté until the apples are soft but not cooked completely.
  5. Remove from heat and add orange zest, rosemary and poultry seasoning to the apple mixture.
  6. Stuff the chicken with the mixture. Tie the legs together with kitchen string. Place breast side up in a roasting pan. Rub the chicken with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil.
  7. Roast for 1 1/2 hours. Let chicken rest for 10 minutes before carving
  8. ENJOY!
