How to make it
- Preheat oven to 450F.
- For the stuffing: heat 2tablespoons oil in a frying pan and cook onion over a medium-low heat. Stir this occasionally until onion has softened.
- Add garlic and rosemary leaves and cook for another couple of minutes. Remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl.
- Heat remaining 2tablespoons oil and half the butter in the frying pan over medium heat. Drain chicken livers from milk and pan fry for approx 2 minutes each side or until golden brown. Transfer livers and cooking juices to a plate to cool. Season with salt and pepper and roughly chop.
- Add in livers and their juices to the onion mixture along with thyme, torn ciabatta, macadamias, and parsley. Mix until well combined.
- Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Fill chicken cavity with the stuffing. Carefully separate the breast skin from the meat and slip remaining butter in between the skin and breast meat (very key). Season well with salt and pepper.
- Place extra rosemary sprigs in a baking pan and place chicken on top breast side up. Put into the oven and turn the temp down to 400F. Roast for 50-60 minutes or until juices run clear when pierced with a skewer. Remove from the heat and turn breast side down. Cover with foil and rest for at least 15 minutes (to let the juices absorb into meat).
- To serve, take a lettuce leaf and fill with some chicken, stuffing, and roast corn sauce. Drizzle with lemon juice and enjoy with a crisp glass of riesling.
