HOW TO BAKE WHOLE CHICKEN STUFFED WITH NIGERIAN JOLLOF RICE

Baked whole chicken stuffed with Nigerian jollof rice, just out of the oven.

Whole chicken can be baked with or without stuffing. The stuffing makes them look fuller and more inviting and makes it a complete meal. To bake stuffed whole chicken, you can stuff with almost cooked rice, stir fried vegetables or other foods you enjoy eating with chicken. I used almost cooked very peppery Nigerian jollof rice for this stuffing and it's so good.  Preparation took just 5 minutes , baking took 1 hour 20 minutes because I like my chicken well cooked, you can bake for 1 hour 15 minutes and it will still be cooked inside. My oven doesn't have any readings so I preheated for about 15 minutes before putting chicken in. In a modern oven bake in a 190 degrees preheated oven. Will be served with the remaining well cooked jollof rice and some cole slaw.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Whole chicken
  • Salt
  • Knorr chicken
  • Maybe I should add ketchup because my ketchup loving girls rubbed some before putting in the oven.
COOKING DIRECTIONS:
First I washed and padded dry with a napkin, then sprinkled some salt and crushed knorr chicken inside and out. Next scooped some almost cooked rice from a cooking pot and stuffed until the chicken is round and full. I did the sewing with needle and thread, tied the legs together with some thread before placing on the baking tray and inside the oven. Exactly 80 minutes, chicken is out and ready for digging.
