Ingredients
  • 1 roasting chicken
  • 1 herbed bread stuffing (12 ounce pkg)
  • 1 water
  • 3 butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3/4 frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 2 prosciutto or baked ham, cubed
  • 2 garlic, minced
  • 2 dried sage
  • 1/2 dried rosemary
  • 2 heavy cream
  • 2 lemon juice
Directions
In a large bowl, toss stuffing with water.

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, spinach, prosciutto, garlic, sage and rosemary. Sauté until tender, about 5 minutes.

Add spinach mixture to stuffing. Stir in heavy cream and lemon juice. Mix well.

Spoon stuffing loosely into chicken cavity, filling about 3/4 full. Fold skin over openings and close with metal skewers. Tuck wings under chicken. Place on roasting rack. Roast chicken in a 350° oven until 180° and chicken is golden, about 1 hour 30 minutes.

NOTE: Any stuffing leftover, can be placed in a casserole dish, covered, and baked beside the chicken for the last hour of cooking. Add some pats of butter to the top to keep it moist.

"This was really good, especially the stuffing! I have never had spinach or prosciutto in my stuffing and now I will never have it without! Yum! I did oil up the chicken and rubbed some of the same seasonings in the stuffing under the skin."
