Notes*:

After cleaning the Chicken, try to tie the legs together. Otherwise after cooking the Chicken You will get a funny looking Chicken ( I am sure You don’t want that 🙂 ) .

If there is leftover filling after You fill the cavity, You can always add that to the gravy .

Instead of frying the Chicken, You can always Bake & in final 10min just broil, so that it has that crispy texture .
