  • 1 piece chorizo de bilbao


  • 1/2 cup Maya All-Purpose flour
  • 50 grams butter
  • soup stock
  • ground black pepper
  • chicken cube seasoning
  • drippings


Debone chicken and marinade in calamansi and salt or seasoning for 1 hour. Mix all the other ingredients (except the hard boiled egg, sausage, chorizo) and stuff these into the chicken as filling. Place the hard boiled egg, sausages, and chorizo within the chicken then suture to close. Wrap the stuffed chicken with aluminum foil. Cook in an oven for 1 and 1/2 hours at 350 degrees. When done, remove foil. Set oven to broil to help brown the surface of the chicken.
