I love Christmas as it’s the time when our supermarkets stock festive ingredients only during this season, such as stuffing mix (seasoned bread cubes) for making traditional stuffed roasted poultry. In this recipe, the combination of roasted chicken with cubed bread stuffing and potatoes looked and tasted deliciously rustic.

  6. Ya, turkey is expensive in Malaysia!!! My close colleagues/friends and I are gonna have a potluck around the holiday season … They requested for a roast … but roast turkey!!! I may hold back to that idea and stick with chicken instead since it’s more fiscally feasible … LOL!

    Yours definitely fits for the king! Perfect X’mas dish!

  8. Even when I did eat meat, stuffing was always my favorite part of holiday dinners. This looks great and love the step-by-step.

  9. Beautiful roast chicken! The mix of vegetables roasting under the chicken look great too. The olive oil basting gives the chicken great color.

  10. Hi! Thanks for the recipe! I have tried it out and i got one small problem….the bread cubes absorbed all the sauce from the roast chicken after it was mixed with the roasted vege so the final product was a little dry withou the sauce. Any idea what i can do to retain the sauce? Thanks in advance!

    • hi! woah you are fast in trying it out! hope you like the chicken. the bread cubes are supposed to absorbed the chicken juices and remain quite dry and crisp, I don’t think it’s supposed to be soggy type (except the ones stuffed inside the cavity) if that’s what you’re going for ;)

    • Hi wiffy, the bread crumbs get soggy, as they absorb the drippings from the chiken roasting above.

    • my bread cubes may be slightly drier because they are not touching the chicken. If you want drier bread cubes, you can leave it in the oven for a bit longer (after the chicken is taken out) to bake them till crisp. You may need to pick out the cooked veggies first.

    • Hi, it’s e chicken that became pretty dry. Because the bread cubes absorbed all e juices around e chicken and inside e chicken too. I also tried your minimalist roast chicken and I didn’t have this problem. How do I keep e chicken juicy? Thanks!

    • I’m not sure why yours did not turn out juicy like the minimalist roast chicken. Did you let the chicken rest before carving? did you roast it at the same temperature as the minimalist chicken?

    • Yup i did let it rest first and it was roasted at the temp specified in your recipe. Can it be because the chicken was very close to the heating coils when i propped it on top of the vege? When i did the minimalist roast chicken, it wasn’t a full chicken. I only had half a chicken so it wasn’t that near. My oven is a really tiny one – those portable kind. But thanks anyway for your suggestions. I just tried your potato and leek soup today. It was GREAT!!!! :)

    • Forget the packets, it’s so very easy to make your won delicious stuffing with breadcrumbs/ old bread, then add whatever you have and like e.g for me : little knobs of butter, lemon zest, herbs, whatever I have , today it’s thyme, rosemary , paresly and chives, then Blitz . Heat a shallow frying pan, melt buter , not too much, and olive oil, add some smashed garlic to your taste, do not nurn it, stir in the blitzed mix, take off the heat out onto a shallow baking tin in the oven for 30 mins…delicious on its own.
