    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 1 hour 30 minutes
    • Total time: 1 hour 40 minutes

    Serves: 4


    1.2kg whole chicken
    1 tsp olive oil
    1 tsp smoked paprika
    50g Waitrose Sun-dried Tomatoes in oil
    1 onion, finely chopped
    125g wholemeal breadcrumbs
    25g rolled oats
    1 medium essential Waitrose Free Range Egg, beaten
    400g can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
    120g Cooks’ Ingredients Diced Chorizo
    1 red pepper, diced 


    1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Place the chicken in a roasting tin. Mix 1 tsp oil into the paprika and spread over the chicken skin. Roast for 1 hour 10 minutes.

    2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp of the tomato oil in a frying pan and fry the onion for 2-3 minutes. Stir into the breadcrumbs with the oats, egg and sun-dried tomatoes. Mould into 8 balls and place on a greased baking tray.

    3. Add the beans, chorizo and pepper to the roasting tray with the chicken and place the stuffing balls on the shelf below. Cook for a further 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through with no pink meat.
