This delicious recipe, brought to you by Q Guild Butchers, offers a tantalizing twist on traditional roast chicken. By following their careful instructions to prepare the bird for stuffing between the meat and the skin, you can create a succulent and flavourful dish that's sure to impress your guests.
* 1.5kg / 3-3?lb free range chicken
* 100g / 4oz chorizo, thinly sliced
* 1 large onion halved
* Few sprigs of thyme
* ? tsp ground cinnamon
* 3 tbsp olive oil
* Salt and ground black pepper
(Please note you will require a barbecue which has a lid and a temperature gauge capable of reaching 180-190°C)
Prepare the bird for stuffing between the meat and the skin by carefully working your fingers between the skin and the breast meat until it becomes loose and repeat this procedure on the legs.
Position the chorizo slices under the loosened skin until all the slices have been used up and all of the breast and the majority of the legs are covered.
Place the thyme and onion halves in the cavity of the bird. Mix the oil and cinnamon together and season well.
Finally season the chicken with the salt and pepper before barbecuing the bird using the roasting method (see your barbecue instruction manual) on a medium heat for 75-90 minutes. To check when the bird is ready, probe in the breast and thigh and ensure an internal temperature of 75c or insert a knife into the thickest part of the thigh and check the juices run clear.
Leave the chicken to rest for around 10 minutes before carving.
Serve with grilled peppers, crisp green salad and warm crusty bread.
