Matzo Stuffed Chicken


1 cup minced onion

1/2 cup diced celery

1/2 cup coarsely chopped nuts

6 tablespoons Empire Kosher Rendered Chicken Fat

¾ cup Matzo Farfel

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

2 teaspoons paprika

1 egg, slightly beaten

1 cup chicken broth

2 Empire Kosher Broiler Chickens


1. Preheat oven to 400F.

2. In a large skillet, sauté onion, celery, and nuts in 4 tablespoons of fat on medium heat, until onion is tender but not browned.

3. Add matzo farfel and toast lightly, about 1 minute.

4. Combine seasonings, egg and broth in a separate bowl and add to matzo mixture.

5. Stuff chickens lightly, and in a large roasting pan, brush with remaining 2 tablespoons of rendered fat and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

6. Spread remaining stuffing in a large, greased baking dish and set aside.

7. Roasting time for a whole stuffed chicken is 1 ½ hours. Roast at 400F for 15 minutes, then lower temperature to 350 degrees for the remaining 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes. Twenty minutes before chickens are finished, place stuffing on bottom rack to roast.
