Canadian Chicken on the Crown and Stock

Method - Part 1

Step 1

Heat oven to 375F
 

Step 2

Remove the wings, legs and backbone from the chicken leaving the breast, drumette, and the ribcage. Save the remainder for other recipes (e.g., chicken curry, chicken soup or stew).
 

Step 3

Place the wings and backbone into a pan or roasting tray and bake at 375F for about 30-45 minutes until they are nicely golden brown.
 

Step 4

Reserve the fat into a smaller container and place the bones into a 2L pot and fill it with cold water and slowly bring it to a simmer. Add any vegetables that are getting old, or you have some trim of including stems of herbs.
 

Step 5

Simmer this roasted chicken stock for about 3-4 hours since it will not be a big batch. Skim with a spoon or small ladle to remove any excess fat or impurities that will rise to the top. Strain through a fine strainer or sieve and cool it down and reserve for the sauce and fricassee.

 

Method - Part 2 

Step 1

Pre-heat oven to “Broil” with the rack in the middle.
 

 

Step 2

Take the stuffing and squeeze it gently between the skin and breast meat of the chicken, making sure it is spread evenly around both sides of the breast.
 

Step 3

Using your thumb, press firmly around the top of the skin to making sure it is spread all around the surface.
 

Step 4

Place the chicken onto a tray with paper towel and season generously with salt and fresh cracked black pepper, making sure the skin and the back side (inside of the rib cage) is very well coated with seasoning. Do not forget to season the drumettes as well.
 

Step 5

Place chicken in a larger pan with butter, thyme and garlic and place in oven for approximately 20-25 minutes. Check the oven every 5-8 minutes to ensure the chicken is perfectly golden brown.  Then turn down the oven temperature to 350F.
 

Step 6

Baste the chicken 3-4 times during cooking.
 

Step 7

Using your thermometer, probe the chicken between the middle bone of the breast, near the thicker end, trying to run it along the bone as much as you can. It should read 60C when ready and then it can rest. Rest chicken for at least 10 minutes.
 

Step 8

Reserve the roasting jus from the pan for your cauliflower and fricassee.
 

Step 9

Carve your chicken breast making sure the skin and stuffing is still attached, Carve the chicken breast length wise in half, making sure the skin and stuffing are intact. Place the breast onto your plate.
