“This recipe is sufficient for 2 chickens, stuffed with a curried rice stuffing and cooked in a tasty curry sauce. This dish is even better when prepared a day ahead as the flavours mix together and will be even tastier heated up the next day.”
3hrs 30mins

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse chickens in cold water and dry with paper towel.
  2. Melt butter for curry sauce in a pot and braise onions for 5 minutes.
  3. Add curry powder and cook a further 5 minutes.
  4. Add the flour and then gradually add the chicken stock.
  5. Bring the mixture to the boil and add the sugar, chutney, salt and lemon juice.
  6. Cover and cook the sauce for half an hour on very low heat.
  7. Boil the rice for the filling for 5 minutes and drain.
  8. Braise the onions in the butter until soft, adding curry powder and rice, then salt.
  9. 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.
  10. Place the chickens in a casserole dish with a lid.
  11. Pour the curry sauce through a strainer or sieve over the chickens and cover.
  12. 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.
  13. 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)-
  14. I do not bother to strain the sauce, and serve extra sauce in a jug on the side.
  15. If I am in a hurry I do not make the rice stuffing - cook at 180 C for about 2 hours.
