Gunpowder's Festive Chicken

Gunpowder’s Festive Stuffed Chicken

Switch up your turkey for an Indian-inspired alternative. Gunpowder’s Cornish chicken is marinated in Indian spices and yoghurt, then filled with pork mince and dried apricot stuffing, plus a boiled egg in its centre. It’s then scattered with fennel, melon and blue poppy seeds and accompanied by Gunpowder’s makhana sauce. Serve alongside some roasted cumin and turmeric potatoes alongside your favourite greens for a twist on the traditional roast.
