Cook Time

45-50 Min


  • 900g/2lb chicken, halved lengthways
  • 75g/3oz butter, melted
  • 175g/6oz dessert apples
  • 1⁄2 onion, chopped
  • 50g/2oz celery sticks, chopped
  • 200g/7oz croûtons
  • 75ml/3fl oz water
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Preheat the grill. Break the wing, hip and drumstick joints of the chicken so that it will remain flat during cooking. Place the chicken skin side up in a baking tray, brush with 15g/1/2oz of the butter and season with salt and pepper.
  • Grill for about 20 minutes until lightly browned. Turn and brush the cavity side with 15g/1/2oz butter and season. Grill for a further 15–20 minutes until tender.
  • Peel, core and chop the apples. In a small heavy saucepan, cook the apples, onion and celery in the remaining butter until tender. Add the croûtons and 75ml/3fl oz water, and season with salt and pepper.
  • Put the apple mixture into the chicken cavity, and grill the chicken for a further 5 minutes. Serve hot.
