This chicken and it’s stuffing has turned out to be one of my all time favourite poultry/stuffing combos. When I tested it last week and then served it at a dinner a few days later, I couldn’t get enough of it, nor on the day of the shoot for the above pic.. The flavours all work together so well and it’s so Christmassy in aroma and flavour. Pomegranates are one of my most adored food items to shoot and recently I read about how well they pair with chicken so I thought I’d mess around in the kitchen and try out some recipe tests using both.

I cooked this dish using 2 x 1.5kg chickens*, this will serve 4 adults and 4 kids approx. if you want to just cook one bird that is fine, the stuffing recipe below will fill both these chickens with a small amount left over ~ which I always love as I adore the stuffing and like to bake extra/any leftovers in a piece of foil alongside the bird/s. I haven’t tested this recipe with turkey but I can’t imagine it wouldn’t work just as well as with chicken. If you do try it with turkey, please let me know how you go!

    Hi Katie- what is pomegranate molases? I have some weird pomegranate stuff I bought at a lebanese supermarket but I am not sure if it is what you mean. Someone told me the stuff I had can be used in place of vinegar in dressings etc?? Is this the same thing. Would love to make this recipe as I love pomegranates too and they’re everywhere right now. xxCorrina.
