DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse chickens in cold water and dry with paper towel.
  • Melt butter for curry sauce in a pot and braise onions for 5 minutes.
  • Add curry powder and cook a further 5 minutes.
  • Add the flour and then gradually add the chicken stock.
  • Bring the mixture to the boil and add the sugar, chutney, salt and lemon juice.
  • Cover and cook the sauce for half an hour on very low heat.
  • Boil the rice for the filling for 5 minutes and drain.
  • Braise the onions in the butter until soft, adding curry powder and rice, then salt.
  • Put this filling into the chicken cavity, stuffing the neck cavity as well. Do not overstuff, as the rice will expand during cooking. Close up the cavity with toothpicks.
  • Place the chickens in a casserole dish with a lid.
  • Pour the curry sauce through a strainer or sieve over the chickens and cover.
  • Bake in a 160 C oven for 3 to 4 hours. No need to pre- heat the oven. Baste the chickens with the sauce during cooking.
  • Note: This is rustic food, perfect family meal on a cold winters day, served with extra white rice (as the stuffing is not alot, but worth making as the taste is beautiful)-
  • I do not bother to strain the sauce, and serve extra sauce in a jug on the side.
  • If I am in a hurry I do not make the rice stuffing - cook at 180 C for about 2 hours.
