1hr 50mins




  • Preheat oven to 180C/350°F.
  • Line a roasting pan with foil (makes for easier clean-up).
  • Rinse and pat dry the chicken. Sit the chicken in the pan and season with salt and pepper.
  • Cut the avocados in half, remove the stones and scoop out the flesh with a spoon into a bowl.
  • Roughly mash the avocado so that you still have some small chunks. Add the remaining stuffing ingredients, mix together and taste for seasoning.
  • Stuff the mixture between the skin and flesh as best you can all over the chicken. It's OK if some is sticking out.
  • Mix the ingredients for the coating and drizzle or brush the honey mixture all over the chicken skin.
  • Bake the chicken for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, depending on its size, basting occasionally with any juices in the pan or with any leftover honey mixture.
  • Remove from oven when done and allow to rest 5-10 minutes before carving.

  1. This method produced a really moist, tender chicken. We had a 4 lb bird which roasted for 2 hours with about 3 bastings. The flavour of all the seasonings was missing, however, and I was disappointed as I expected tangy, hot, garlicky...something, anything. I didn't care for the honey in this prep either. I love experimenting, though, and am glad I tried this. Thanks.


<img src=> UPDATED: 15 Aug 2007 Hi! Thanks for taking a peek at my page! I'm formally from East Norriton, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia. After 21 years of marriage, got divorced and met a Brit living in the U.S. He decided to come back to his homeland and I came over here about a year later. We were married in October 2005. Here I am down at Viking Bay which is only two miles from our house. My hubby grew up down here and I love living near the seaside. <img src=> <img src=> We adopted two rescue cats in May 2007 and now I have some company during the day! (Yeah sure, great company they are when they sleep all day!) Our two 'children'... Noddy (Lord of Nottingham) <img src=> <img src=> Alfie (Sir Alfred) <img src=> <img src=> I really have it made I think. I have a husband who can cook! I cook during the week and Peter cooks on the weekends. I have included some of his concoctions in my list of recipes. <img src=> Me at the Scotland border, August 2005 <img src=> I'm still unemployed which gives me plenty of time to experiment in the kitchen. I love to cook and try different things and 'Zaar has really helped in that aspect. I'd love to start my own business someday selling some of my homemade creations. <img src=> <img src=> <img src=> I'm a Betty Boop freak and have loads of stuff that I've collected over the years including a porcelain doll of her in a wedding dress and I even have her tattooed on my ankle. <img src="><img border="0" src=""> ~~~~~~~<img src=> I enjoy doing cross stitch, cooking, baking and entertaining and hubby and I love our wines! Some of my pet peeves are bad hygiene, rudeness, bad manners, laziness and people who litter. My favorite cookbook is my Betty Crocker Cookybook. I've had a copy since I was about 12 and it was falling apart. My brother got me a new copy a couple of years ago from ebay and it was a FIRST EDITION and was in excellent condition. Now that I'm here in England, I find myself collecting more cookbooks. I'm going to need another room just for them if I don't cut down a bit! <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"><img src=> <img src=""><img src=> <img src=""><img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="adoptatagparticipant" title="Photo and Video Sharing"/> <img src=> <img src=""> <img src=> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" target="_blank" title="web site hit counter"><img border="0" alt="web site hit counter" src=""></a>
