Stuffed chicken according to a family recipe

Do you remember Vpele Vodovc, who years ago drove Kickstarter crazy with Cook Eat Slovenia cookbook, the first book of its kind that aims to convey the delicious flavors of Slovenian cuisine to people around the world? The cookbook, which combines the cave’s family recipes, is a real balm for the soul when we want classic Slovenian dishes like beef soup, ostrich of all kinds, gratin pancakes, cream cheese, žganci, žlikrofi and many more. Delicate complete with beautiful photos Mateja Jordovich Potoçnik, express the warmth of home cooking and are a wonderful gift for relatives, friends or business partners abroad. Since the German translation was published these days, among the covers we asked for a dish that will help you for the Christmas dinner, which according to the Cave is not without stuffed chicken: “According to the tradition of my grandparents, add from time to time chicken liver fried in onions until stuffing. This juicy poultry, along with the filling, is the perfect dish, so apart from the salad, we do not need any other dish.

If you are lazy, make sure you have a good chicken as soon as possible and you probably already have all the other ingredients at home. Enjoy juicy baking!
