I don’t know about you but I absolutely love truffle anything! And, no, I don’t mean the chocolates. Truffles are rare wild mushrooms and are considered a delicacy. I wanted to make a whole roasted chicken in a different way and had an idea to flavor it with truffle oil.
- 1 whole chicken rinsed and insides discarded
- 1 onion quartered
- truffle oil
- fresh mushrooms
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400. Place chicken in roasting pan. Coat entire chicken with truffle oil and season with salt and pepper. Place onion and mushrooms around chicken, moisten with truffle oil as well. Place in oven and roast for about 1- 2 hours depending on the size of your chicken. I use a meat thermometer which says poultry is ready at 180. Juices should run clear as well.
This chicken was juicy and good. However, be generous with the truffle oil. This was my first time making it this way and I was scared of overdoing it with the oil. Well, I should have used more. You live and learn…and I’ve learned you never can have too much TRUFFLE…..
