Tarragon and garlic stuffing for chicken

Side Serves 3 50 min
Tarragon and garlic make great combination with chicken. This stuffing is based on a chicken dish from Spago, a famous restaurant in Beverley Hills, which used parsley instead of tarragon.


  • 1 garlic bulb
  • 1 tbsp tarragon, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper


Prep time: 10 min
Cooking time: 40 min
  • Step 1

    Separate the garlic cloves, peel them and place in a small pan. Cover with water and simmer for about 40 minutes, topping up with more water if necessary, until the garlic is very soft.
  • Step 2

    Drain the garlic and crush to a paste with the flat of a knife. Mix with the tarragon and season well.
  • Step 3

    The stuffing should be smeared between the skin and flesh of the breast and leg. A natural pocket can be found by easing the skin away from the flesh.
  • Step 4

    With one hand and a tablespoon of the stuffing, venture under the skin, pushing the stuffing in and being sure not to break the skin.
