Did you know that supermarkets here in Japan don’t normally sell whole chickens if it’s not Christmas time? I had to go to a high-end butcher shop and order this bird in! And it took a whole month for them to get one for me! Well, it was definitely worth the wait because I’ve been wanting to make this beautiful bird for a while! I stuffed it with different types of mushrooms just under the chicken breast’ skin. I coated it with garlic, rosemary and olive oil.
I just got myself a cast iron skillet so I was really excited to use it!! I remember eating this recipe some years ago from Jamie Oliver, but this time I decided to change it a little. I didn’t want to use thyme and lemon like his recipe, but rosemary and garlic. I also used almond flour instead of the breadcrumbs because I wanted this chicken to be gluten-free. I like a lot of mushrooms in this dish because they turn out soooo good! The best stuffing ever!
Keto Paleo Mushroom Stuffed Roast Chicken
- Preheat the oven to 200C/400F.
- Dice the onion and all of the mushrooms. Thinly slice the garlic cloves.
- In a cast iron skillet, heat 2 tbsp of olive oil.
- Add the diced onions, mushrooms and half the garlic cloves inside the skillet, sprinkle 1 tsp of the salt and pepper and cook until wilted. Transfer to a large bowl and add the egg and almond flour. Mix well together. Take one of the rosemary sprigs and strip off the needles and mix them to the bowl.
- Add your bird to the skillet, breast side up.
- Lift the skin off the breast and stuff the breast with 3/4 of the mushroom stuffing. Make sure to stuff all the way (there is surprisingly lots of space beneath the skin of the breasts).
- Brush the 3 tbsp of olive oil over the chicken. Add half of the garlic slices over the chicken and and rosemary. Sprinkle 1 tsp of the salt and coarse pepper over the chicken.
- Bake in oven for 50 minutes.
- Add the last 1/4 of the mushroom stuffing inside the skillet around the chicken. Bake another 20 minutes.
- Take out of the oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes. Serve while it's hot!
