Nothing says Christmas like a magnificent roast chicken! Chef Rahul Bhukesh from Godrej Tyson Food shares one of his delectable Real Good Food Ideas. This prune and nut stuffed chicken is a holiday classic, with its crisp, buttery skin roasted to perfection, a medley of sweet and savoury stuffing and flavoursome gravy. Something tells us that it may be polished off in the kitchen itself and not make it to the dinner table this time!

Preheat the convection at 190 degree Celsius. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Stuff the neck of the chicken loosely, leaving enough space for the breadcrumbs to swell during cooking. Tuck the skin of the neck under the bird to secure the stuffing and hold the wings in place with a piece of string.

Place the chicken on a roasting tray and cover with bacon rashers (optional). Rub the remaining butter on the chicken. Cover with a foil loosely and roast for about 90 minutes. Baste the chicken with the juice in the roasting tray 3-4 times during cooking. Once done, remove the trussing string and transfer to a serving tray.

For the gravy, transfer the juice from the baking tray into a pan. Slowly add flour and butter in the juice and stir. Add chicken stock and the seasoning to the gravy and bring to a boil. Strain and serve with the roast chicken.
