Boned and stuffed whole chicken W/ Q-View

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by billdawg, Oct 22, 2011.

  1. So, after watching the video on how to make lolli pops and de-bone a chicken, I decided I would try my hand at de-boning one and stuffing it. I got a 4 lb chicken and got it de-boned (actually much easier than I thought it would be) and then stuffed it with spinach, diced mushrooms, onions, and garlic. I am going to rub some EVOO on the outside of it and sprinkle some of my pork rub on it before the smoker. I am planning on smoking it between 225* and 250* until the breast reads about 145* and then crank up the temp to 275*-300* until it reaches 165* to crisp up the skin. Using a combo of Pecan and Cherry for the smoke. This is all guess work since I have never done this before. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I will update with more pics as the day goes on. Wish me luck!

    Got it all closed up...still need to put some oil and rub on it before the smoker.

    More pics and update later. Once again, any suggestions on this are greatly welcome!

    A look at the inside.

    Served with corn and my wife's AMAZING spam fried rice. I love when she breaks out her Pacific Island heritage in the kitchen.

    The chicken turned out good! It needs a few tweaks and it will be Outstanding. I think next time I will add some sour cream or cream cheese to the stuffing. It had good flavor, but needed a little more moisture. The chicken itself was juicy and had great flavor. I have some leftover stuffing that I think we will tweak and stuff some mushrooms with tomorrow. Thanks for looking!

    That would be a Chicken Divan Roll!!!!

    I think what we have here is the makings for a new breed:  The Chicken Fattie!!!!  Oh, the possibilities!!!!!  Just add bacon!

    Great post!  This would finally get me that first step toward the turducken I've been threatening to try...
     
  12. Thanks Raptor! The rice really is the bomb....
     
  13. You were right! I will be doing this again.
     
     
  14. Thanks JC!
     
  15. Sounds good Bigfish...I think the options are limitless!

    How about a turduckenhen?!! Cornish hen inside a chicken, inside a duck, inside a turkey! Or a turduckenhensquab! I could go on but most of the birds smaller are protected!

  17. I was having the same thoughts as I was putting this together...a little bacon and its a fattie! I am also working toward the Turducken trifecta and this most definitely gave me some confidence about boning a turkey. I have a couple more chickens and a couple of turkeys in the freezer, so I might try just a chicken inside a turkey next (turken?). This was a last minute decision, so next time, I will go the whole 9 yards and brine ahead of time.
     
  18. Just make sure you post that because I want to see it!
