How to Make Stuffed Chicken or Turkey

  • Clean and wash the chicken or turkey with warm water. Remove the skin as much as you can.
  • In a deep pan with 1/4 cup oil, first fry onion, then the ginger and whole black pepper.
  • Keep chopped celery and coriander ready.
  • When onion is golden brown, add spices, peas, cream corn, chopped celery and chopped coriander. Use green onion if celery is not available and cook until vegetables are a little done (not fully done).
  • Put 3/4 of all mixed vegetables into chicken or turkey and stitch the bird or clip it, so stuffing doesn't get out.
  • Put stuffed chicken or turkey in special plastic bag made for the oven.
  • Pour chicken broth and 1/2 cup water in large aluminium foil container/pan.
  • Put stuffed chicken or turkey in the pan and spread left over mixed vegetables.
  • Cover the bird with aluminium foil. Make some holes for air to get out and bake it for 3-4 hours at 350 degrees F for chicken and 6 hours for turkey.
  • When it is cool, cut the bird with large knife. Use cooked vegetables for gravy and eat with naan or bread slices, fried in pan with a little butter.
