Egg Stuffed Whole Chicken


When the bird got an extreme makeover.. Last weekend, when I had gone for grocery shopping, I paused myself at the poultry section. I looked around at the pretty frozen parts of birds and also the whole birds sitting in the freezer. I usually end up buying boneless chicken breasts or chicken thighs, this time I bought the whole bird instead. I felt so thrilled when that pretty bird came along with me to my kitchen. When I opened the bag, the bird looked so gloomy and dull after a long tiresome day. Hence, I wanted the bird to have a special spa treatment. First step of the spa treatment was giving the bird a bath, allowed it to dip down and relax in a bath tub, filled with aromatic water. After the refreshing bath, gave a pat dry with extra soft towels. Then, I gave the bird a real good massage, rubbed it all over with special gel and kept it in the refrigerator for extra relaxation overnight. Next day, took the bird out of the refrigerator and added some special effects by stuffing
