Cooking a whole chicken is one of the easiest ways to put dinner on the table. Just add some veggies alongside the chicken and you have a nutritious meal for the family!
1. Thai-Style Sweet Chili Chicken (slow cooker)
A simple and delicious slow cooker dish that teams well served over rice noodles or cooked brown rice.
2. Roast Chicken with Outside Stuffing
This aromatic, apple-basted chicken is a delicious spin on the everyday. A sweet potato and apple stuffing only enhances the chicken’s flavour. This is a perfect fall meal, particularly on those chilly late autumn days.
3. Christmas Truffle Chicken
I know that Christmas is coming and I wanted to make you something just a little more special than usual. I like to use organic chicken for this recipe and am a big fan of Yorkshire Valley Farms. Check out my truffles and let me know what you think (this is not for the kids’ party).
4. Herb Roasted Chicken with Cranberry Barley Pilaf
The variety of textures and flavours in this hearty pilaf pair beautifully with the French-inspired herbs in this mouthwatering roast chicken.
5. Lemongrass Hens
This simple Thai inspired marinade uses sweet, sour and spicy ingredients to infuse flavour into a whole chicken.
6. Prosciutto Wrapped Roast Chicken with Root Vegetables
It is hard to beat the classic roast chicken. While we aren’t trying to compete, this new twist on the classic is always a crowd pleaser. To keep the prosciutto crisp without burning make sure to baste the chicken often. If the prosciutto is still burning then tent it with tin foil.
7. Roast Chicken with Brown Lentil and Winter Squash Stuffing
This hearty meal will make any cold winter evening feel nice and cozy. The sweet winter squash will fill your kitchen with its delicate aroma.
8. Garlicky Greek Chicken
This prizewinning chicken recipe pairs a flavourful herb-rubbed, barbeque-roasted chicken with homemade tzatziki. It’s ideal both for a family meal and for backyard entertaining. Adapted from a recipe by Canadian Living 2007 Cook of the Year 3rd prize winner Kathryn Howden of Sherwood Park, Alberta.
