Roasted Chicken Stuffed with Cilantro and Garlic Recipe

Roasted Chicken Stuffed with Cilantro and Garlic Recipe

Two of my favorite ingredients to cook with are garlic and cilantro. When I decided to roast a chicken last night I thought what better combination of ingredients to use than my favorites?

Here's what you'll need:

1 Whole Roaster Chicken
1-2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon of Seasoned Salt
1 Tablespoon of Garlic Powder
1 Tablespoon of Basil Leaves
1 Cup of Cilantro (leaves and stems)
3-5 Whole Cloves of Garlic Peeled and Crushed

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

In a small bowl make a rub using the olive oil, seasoned salt, garlic powder, and basil leaves. Mix thoroughly adding more olive oil if needed.

Remove any giblets from the cavity.

Place your chicken on a roasting pan breast side down and start rubbing your mixture all over and getting under the skin where you can. Flip the chicken breast side up and finish until the entire chicken is coated with the rub.

Stuff the cavity with the cilantro and garlic cloves.

Cover with foil and bake for an hour and a half or until juices run clear. Always check the thickest part of the meat to be sure that its done.

Remove the chicken from the oven and let it rest for a least 10 minutes to allow the juices to settle before carving.


Some recipes suggest tying the the legs together. This is more for aesthetic reasons and I've never done it but you can if you want.

A recent episode of Dr. Oz suggests that we NOT wash our chicken before cooking. The reasoning is that once the water hits it, it will spray around your sink and kitchen redistributing any bacteria that may have been on it. Always cook chicken thoroughly to avoid contamination. Love me some Dr. Oz.
