Whole Roasted Chicken with Wild Rice Recipe
- 1 whole roasting chicken (about 4 pounds)
- 1/2 cup wild rice
- 1 ½ cups (370 ml) water
- 1/3 cup cashew nuts
- 1/2 pound (240 g) mushrooms
- 1/3 cup dried raisins, soaked
- 3 chicken livers
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup finely chopped onions
- 1/4 cup (60 ml) dry white wine
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 small whole onion, peeled
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
Sprinkle the chicken inside and out with salt and pepper. Put the wild rice in a saucepan and add 1 cup of the water and some salt. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer 40 to 45 minutes, or until rice "blooms" and is tender. Drain thoroughly.
Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 450° F(232°C). Put the cashews in a skillet and place in the oven. Bake, stirring often, until golden brown,5 minutes or longer. Cut the mushrooms into 1/2-inch cubes. There should be about 3 cups. Cut the livers into 1/4-inch cubes. There should be about 1/2 cup. Heat 2 tablespoons of the butter in a saucepan and add the chopped onions. Cook, stirring until wilted.
Add the wine and cook, stirring often, until the liquid is almost totally evaporated. Add the chicken livers and cook, stirring, until livers lose their raw look. Add the cooked wild rice, cashews and 1 tablespoon of butter to the mushroom mixture. Stir to blend and let cool. Stir in soaked raisins. Stuff it in the body and in the crop with wild rice mixture.
Truss the chicken and rub on all sides with vegetable oil. Place the chicken on one side in a roasting pan. Scatter the whole onion, neck, and gizzard around the chicken. Place the chicken in the oven and bake 25 minutes. Turn the chicken onto the other side and bake 25 minutes more. Turn the chicken breast side up and continue roasting, basting often, about 10 minutes. Reduce the oven heat to 400°F(204°C). Pour off the fat from the pan. Add 1 tablespoon of butter and then 1/2 cup of water, stirring to dissolve the brown particles that cling to the bottom of the pan. Return the chicken to the oven and bake 15 minutes longer.
