Yield: 5


  • 3 thick slices day old ciabatta bread or other artisan bread
  • 1 size 16 chicken ( 1.6kg or 3 1/2 pounds)
  • 1 head of garlic, divided into cloves
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock


Preheat the oven to 180 C or 375 F. Tear the bread into rough pieces approximately 2-3cm (1 inch or a bit bigger) wide. Cut the chicken into portions, if you follow this quick video on portioning a chicken from Lance the butcher, you will get even neat pieces. Place the chicken in a single layer in a roasting dish, scatter the garlic cloves around the chicken  along with the pieces of bread. Drizzle with a small amount of olive oil. Place the smoked paprika and salt in a small sieve and dust the chicken and bread with this. Cook for about 35 minutes until the chicken is golden and the juices run clear when pierced with a skewer. Turn any croutons that appear to be colouring too quickly. Once cooked, remove the chicken, garlic and croutons from the roasting dish and arrange on a serving platter. Place the roasting pan on the stove top over a moderate heat, pour in the wine and chicken stock, stirring with a wooden spoon, allow the liquid to bubble and reduce for a few minutes before drizzling over the chicken and serving.
