Organic Medieval Style Chicken

Serves: 4 -6 people


  • 1 organic Eversfield Chicken (4-5lbs)
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • ¼ pint vinegar
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
For the Stuffing
  • 4 oz fresh breadcrumbs
  • 8 oz prunes, soaked, stoned and chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of ground mace
  • 2 teaspoons mixed herbs
  • 1 tablespoon suet
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
For the Sauce
  • 1 oz butter
  • 1 oz flour
  • ¾ pint chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
For the Garnish
  • Finely grated peel of 2 lemons
  • 12 stoned prunes
  • 1 lemon thinly sliced
  • 2 oz roughly chopped parsley


Mix together all the stuffing ingredients, then stuff the chicken cavity with it, securing it firmly.

Put the stuffed bird into a large saucepan with the sliced onion, season to taste, barely cover with water.

Add the vinegar and sugar and bring to the boil and cover. Simmer very slowly for about 2-2 ½ hours. Allow to cool in the broth and skim the top when cool.

When needed, lift the chicken from the pan, straining well. Place in a large dish and reserve the stock. Remove all the skin from the bird.

To make the sauce, melt the butter in a small pan, add flour, cook for 1 minute.

Add stock slowly, stirring until smooth and creamy.

Add lemon juice and seasoning.

Cover the bird with lemon sauce and sprinkle the lemon peel all over. Leave in a cold place.

Before serving, garnish with parsley, prunes and lemon slices.
