The combination of chorizo and apricots gives this stuffing a great flavour profile.


  • 1 whole free range chicken (2.2 - 2.4kg)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp flaked sea salt
  • 1tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 thyme sprigs, leaves removed
  • Stuffing
  • 180g cooking chorizo (sausage meat squeezed from skins)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 onions, peeled and roughly chopped
  • zest and juice of half a lemon

  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • Step 1 Pre-heat your oven to 190’C/ 170’C fan.
  • Step 2 To make the stuffing use a food processor to make the breadcrumbs. Then add all the other ingredients to the processor bowl and chop until like a sausage meat consistency. Push down into the cavity of the chicken.
