Wk 5 13 23: Yummy roast stuffed chicken roll

Hello Savvy Shoppers!

This week, Loblaws features fresh whole chicken for $1.99 lb. So I am sharing the following recipe which is a favourite in our house, a recipe that can be for a Sunday dinner or for a special occasion.


1 whole chicken, 3-3.5 lbs
1/2 lb ground beef/pork
salt, pepper
garlic powder
1 onion
1 stick celery
1 medium carrot
Butcher’s string
roasting pan


  1. Debone the chicken, and keep the skin on.
  2. Put the chicken flat on parchment paper. Cover with cellophane. Pound the chicken into a then layer that is about ½ inch thick. Remove cellophane.
  3. Prepare the ground meat mix with all the flavours you would use for your favourite hamburger or meatloaf.
  4. Spread the ground meat mixture onto the flattened chicken.
  5. With the help of the parchment paper, shape the chicken into a roll.
  6. Using the string, tie the roll at intervals like a salami.
  7. Roast pan:
    A little olive oil, coarsely chopped onion, carrot, and celery.
    Add a branch of rosemary and sage if you have these.
    Place chicken on top of these ingredietnts.
  8. Bake in preheated oven at 350F for about 1 hour. Rotate 1-2 times.
  9. Take it out of the oven. Cover with aluminum foil. Let chicken rest 45 min.
  10. To serve:
    Cut the chicken roll into slices.
    Accompany with roast potatoes, a vegetable, and a green salad.

Buon appetito Savvy Shoppers!
