Chicken Galantina is a Filipino roast chicken dish popular during the holidays. Pair this traditional Christmas main with gravy.
1 whole chicken, (ask your trusted butcher to debone and keep the bones for the gravy)
3 boiled eggs, peeled (to be stuffed inside the bird)
1/2 cup butter, for rubbing the bird
1/2 kilo ground pork, (for a less fatty version, you may use ground chicken)
2 tablespoons garlic, chopped
1/2 cup Vienna sausage, sliced
3 tablespoons pickle relish, chopped
salt and pepper, to taste
1 Mix all the ingredients for the stuffing. To taste if the seasoning is okay, get a small portion and form into a patty. Pan-fry then taste, add more salt and pepper if needed. Stuff the mixture inside the deboned chicken.
2 Make sure you sew in any of the stuffing tight so that it will not burst while baking. Slather and massage the butter all over the bird.
3 Place chicken in a turbo broiler and cook for 40 minutes at 200°F.
4 Remove twine from the chicken and serve with gravy.
