Christmas Free-range Chicken with gingerbread chestnut filling

The perfect dish for your Christmas dinner or any other occasion to delight the whole family


  • 1 whole free-range chicken - ovenready
  • 1 onion
  • 200 g mushrooms
  • 150 g gingerbread
  • 100 g chestnuts
  • 150 ml Greek yogurt
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper

For the sauce:


  • 400ml chicken stock
  • 100 g dried cranberries
  • 1 shot of vodka


  1. Chop all the ingredients for the stuffing, mushrooms, onion, chestnuts and gingerbread and mix in a bowl with Greek yogurt, olive oil, and spices - set aside a little of each for the sauce!
  2. Stuff the chicken with the mixture and tie it up. Place in roasting pan and season.
  3. Add the vegetables set aside and cook for about 70 minutes at 190° degrees in a closed roaster.
  4. Then roast for 10-15 minutes with the lid open until the chicken gets a nice tan.
  5. For the gravy, deglaze the stock with chicken stock, add vodka and cranberries and bring to a boil briefly. Then mix it.
  6. As a side dish, we recommend grilled Brussels sprouts and small baked potatoes.
