For the stuffing:

Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Wash chicken. Pat dry with paper towel inside and out, rub with salt inside and out. Set aside.
  • Put herbed croutons in a freezer bag and crush just to break it down but do not pulverized. Add chicken stock to moisten the croutons. Add all the other ingredients and shake in a bag to mix.
  • Stuff and truss the chicken. Transfer to a roasting pan breast side down.
  • Bake for about 40 minutes, then crank the oven to 425 degrees F and roast breast side up for another 5 minutes or until browned. Remove from oven and let it rest for about 5-7 minutes.
  • 2) Bring 4 cups of water to boil, add salt, add brussels sprouts and cook for about 3-5 minutes. Drain into a strainer.
  • You will notice that the brussels sprouts will still be medium cooked but the residual heat will cook it to perfect tenderness.
  • Heat skillet, add 2 tablespoons of fat drippings, stir in brussels sprouts and apples, until charred and caramelized. Toss in fried shallots, apple sauce, add salt and freshly ground pepper, give a couple of stirs and remove from heat.

Absolutely incredible! Though I didn't make mine with stuffing, only because the hubby and I don't eat it anyway.
