Roast Chicken and Stuffing


Nothing beats a classic roast chicken, so familiar for a Sunday lunch. Lazy to make a delicious stuffing? Try this one, it’s quick to make and will put that roast chicken in another league!


  • 1,3kg whole chicken


  • 3 slices white or brown bread
  • 15ml (1 Tbsp) milk
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) Spur Southern Style BBQ Sauce
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 15ml (1 Tbsp) freshly chopped thyme or 5ml (1 tsp) dried thyme
  • About 3ml (1/2 tsp) Spur Seasoning Salt

Basting Sauce


  • Wash the inside of the chicken under running water. Place chicken in a large roasting pan.
  • Stuffing: Soak bread slices in milk and Spur Southern Style BBQ Sauce until soft. Add all the other ingredients and stuff the chicken. Truss the chicken (close with string).
  • Basting: Drizzle half of the oil over the chicken and place in a preheated oven at 180°C for about 15 minutes. Mix remaining oil with the basting sauces and water. Brush the chicken all over.
  • Roast further for about 1 1/4 hours, basting frequently. If the chicken becomes too brown, just cover lightly with foil. Roast for about 1 1/2 hours in total, or until the chicken is cooked through and brown.


  • Substitute Spur Grill Basting with an other Spur basting of choice.
  • Roast chicken with any vegetables of choice, such as carrots, broccoli, or potatoes.


  • To truss a chicken ensures that the legs and wings get fastened, to maintain an even shape while roasting, but it is not necessary.
  • Roast the chicken halfway and then make slight diagonal cuts into the chicken breasts so the basting sauce is absorbed more.
