1 pc shallots
15 g butter
some milk
120 g bread cubes (I’ll take a big one or two regular rolls.)

Mass for the filling of the roast veal. Prepare a classic bread dumpling mixture ...
First prepare the bread dumpling mixture for filling the veal breast: bread rolls, onions sweated in butter, milk, salt, pepper, nutmeg, eggs and parsley …

Prepare bread stuffing

Add finely diced rolls and stir. Let the mixture cool a little, then add the egg and the finely chopped parsley.

Season to taste with salt, pepper and nutmeg and make ready for filling.

Wash the chicken under cold running water, dry and place on a deep baking tray or wide roaster.

Fill the chicken with the dumpling, you can tie the chicken, close it with a skewer or leave it open.

Prepare chicken

Put the stuffed chicken with the vegetables in the oven.

Set the kitchen alarm clock to 30 minutes. When it rings, add the white wine, broth and butter.

You can take care of the crispy skin now:

Use a thin meat fork and carefully prick the skin on the chest and the legs.

Please do not prick the meat, otherwise the valuable gravy will run out and the poultry will dry.

Sprinkle the skin with gravy and salt with a little salt.

After one hour of cooking, check the firmness of the filling with the needle test:

Punch a long needle or thin meat fork into the filling from the direction of the abdominal opening.

Leave the fork or needle in place for 30 seconds, then remove and check the temperature of the fork.

The fork must be very Hot, than the stuffing is ready.

3. How to make your Chicken Crispy in the Oven

So that your chicken gets a crispy skin, I have prepared some tips for you…

The best method for crispy chicken and sauce:

Cook the chicken as described above, then release the breast and legs.

Place the pieces of meat on a baking tray, skin side up.

In the meantime, you can keep the chicken or vegetable filling warm.

Cook the remaining chicken bones, which are called carcasses in the chef’s jargon, with the resulting gravy for 20 minutes.

Add broth and a little white wine to the stock as required, the bones should be covered with liquid.

You can add a few ice cubes to the chicken stock, then bring to the boil slowly, pass the sauce later, bind to taste with starch or fresh and finely grated potatoes and mix with butter.

To serve, gently season the chicken pieces with salt again and heat in the oven until crispy.

Carve the meat, place on warm plates with the filling or side dishes, finish with the sauce…

I made this fried chicken without peppers. It has become an elegant and fine dish!

4. Tips for Stuffed and Unstuffed Chicken from the Oven.

First of all an important info:

A chicken stuffed with bread dumplings needs at least 50 minutes in the oven.

An unfilled or only with herbs stuffed chicken with open abdomen you can cook at high temperature, up to 220°C stage hot air fast.

The chicken stuffed with bread dumplings needs a temperature of 170-180°C.

It needs to cook longer, so that the stuffing is firm and the chicken is crispy but not burnt on the plate, so if you want it to go faster, please fill the chicken only with herbs.

You can fill the chicken with rosemary, thyme and parsley, garlic and garlic, and the fried chicken filled with bread dumplings is a speciality from Bavaria.

The Bavarians love their dumplings and that just as much as filling, as the recipe filled veal breast shows…

5. Ideas for Side Dishes

The chicken with bread roll filling already has a side dish.

The dumplings cook in the chicken and come fried on the table.

In the sauce you prepare potatoes, onions and garlic, carrots and parsley root.

You can add the vegetables to the seasoned chicken right at the beginning, after about 20-30 minutes.

When the vegetables are browned, deglaze with broth and white wine.

Let’s now look at the other side dishes…

Finally, I would like to make the choice easier for you.
