This is one of the best whole chickens I have ever cooked. The cheese stuffing is tucked under the breast skin of the chicken to give added flavor and moistness to the meat. Impressive looking and awesome tasting….what more could you ask for…..
Stuffing: Trim and coarsely grate the Zucchini and mix with the Cheese, Lime Rind, Bread Crumbs, Salt and Pepper.
Carefully ease the skin away from the breast of the Chicken and push the stuffing under the skin with your fingers to cover the breast evenly.
Place Chicken in a baking pan, brush with oil and roast in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 1 ½ to 2 hours or until the juices run clear.
Meanwhile, trim the remaining zucchini and cut into long, thin strips with a vegetable peeler or sharp knife (they will look like thin ribbons with the dark green peel left on); sauté in the butter and lime juice until just tender and serve with the Chicken.
