a savory stuffed chicken

Top Review by JustJanS

This was really good. I had to use fresh diced bread as I've never seen packaged stuffing cubes here. I used 3 slices of bread and took note of the other reviewer's comment of bitterness, and reduced the herbs a bit-so no bitterness we could taste. I watched my chicken and removed it as soon as it was just cooked-so it was extremely moist. I did rub the skin of the chicken with olive oil and season it though. I will make it again, and think a bit of feta in the stuffing would be a good addition too.
