That game last night though, with the Giants.
Oh my god…
You ever see like a whole bar, go in cardiac arrest?
Like all at the same time.
The bar that we were watching the game at had this bomb ass chicken dish which reminded me of this dope roasted chicken recipe I made last week that I’d been meaning to show you.
The chicken liver and prosciutto bread stuffing is like oh my god.
And since pretty much any recipe posted from November onwards can be considered a holiday recipe, now is as good of a time as any to share it, right?
So here’s another thanksgiving recipe, to add to the 40 million that’s already out there.
No but really.
Since everyone out here knows how to roast a goddamn bird, let’s talk about some dumb shit instead.
Did you guys hear about the controversy around the Starbucks holiday cups?
The ones that have the snowflakes and Santa Claus images all over them?
I don’t understand why people are fucking offended by that.
We’re talking about a coffee cup.
People were complaining about them because it’s like you’re throwing your Christianity in my face and I get that –
But like if someone wished me Happy Hanukkah or Happy Kwanzaa, I wouldn’t be like, “Hey, shut the fuck up!”
We’re so politically correct that you can’t even have a reindeer on a goddamn coffee cup anymore and it’s like – what’s next?
Who’s the next group in line to be offended?
I don’t know why I brought this up, I don’t even drink coffee.
Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying it’s not delicious once you get over how bitter it is and you have to pour a pound of fucking sugar in it just to get past that.
I’m just saying the amount of times you see people standing in these lines at the airport or outside a Starbucks and it’s like, is Bruce Springsteen in there?
Is he playing that fucking coffee house?
Because that’s the only reason you can explain standing in a line that fucking long to be all, “let me get a frap, a freaking cocoa mocha…”
Whatever the hell you guys say right?
Whining about a coffee cup.
I wouldn’t even stand in a line like that for beer.
I’ve done it several times.
Roasted Chicken with Bread Stuffing
What I Used.
1 Whole Chicken. ½ cup Milk. 1 Large Egg. ½ cup Chicken Livers (roughly chopped). 1 cup Ground Pork (sub: 2 small fresh sausage links). 1 tbsp Minced Garlic. 2 tbsp Diced Shallots. 3 tbsp Chopped Parsley. 1 tsp Thyme Leaves. 2 knobs Butter. 1 tbsp Melted Butter. 2 cups Chicken Stock. Salt. Pepper.
Equipment: Trussing needle and thread.
What I Did.
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Soak the bread in the milk until it’s fully saturated, then squeeze off any excess milk and place in a large bowl.
Add to the bowl, the egg (beaten separately), chicken livers, ground pork, garlic, shallots, parsley, thyme and the melted butter.
Season lightly with salt & pepper.
When the opening is properly closed, season the outside of the bird with more salt & pepper.
Lift up the skin of the breast so you can stuff the 2 knobs of butter under each breast.
Roast for 1.5 hours or until the juices of the leg run clear and the stuffing has reached an internal temp of 150F.
Transfer the chicken to a platter and let it rest for at least 10 mins.
Meanwhile, place the roasting pan over high heat and add in the chicken stock.
You can also pour the juices from the roasting pan into a smaller pot and add the chicken stock to that.
Just make sure you scrape up the brown bits as much as possible – they’re gooooood.
Bring to a boil, then remove from heat.
Season to taste with salt & pepper then strain into a sauceboat.
Pass the extra sauce at the table.
