  • -tip of a paring knife)
  • 2 Celery stalks
  • 10 md Mushrooms
  • 3 Scallions
  • 3 tb Butter


Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees F. Clean the chicken, remove any large gobs
of fat and rinse away any residual goo from its inside.

Cook the rice in 1 cup of water, along with the saffron. Salt to taste.
Saute the giblets in about 2 T of butter. While these are cooking, clean

as will fit into the chicken. Tie the ends of the drumsticks and the tail
together. Rub about 1 T of butter over the skin of the chicken. Place
remaining stuffing into a glass or ceramic casserole, cover, and set aside.
