Roast Chicken with Lemon & Mushroom Stuffing

I've been cooped up inside with a sick baby for a few days now and the rain is endless. Perfect time for cooking comfort food and one of my favourite dinners is Roast Chicken with all the trimmings. Tonight's dinner had roast spuds with rosemary, kumara (NZ sweet potato), butternut pumpkin & roast yams (the funny looking pink vege on the right side of the photo) as well as steamed cauliflower. And all smothered with gravy.

And not forgetting my own Lemon, Mushroom & Thyme stuffing. Yummo! Here's the stuffing recipe. Ugh - my tummy is very full now!

1/2 onion finely diced
2 mushrooms diced finely
2-3 slices of bread
1 tsp chopped fresh parsley
1/2 tsp thyme
1 egg beaten
juice 1/2 lemon

Pour egg and lemon juice over ingredients and mix/squeeze together into a ball. Place inside clean & dry chicken cavity. Pull skin back over stuffing.
