Nonna's rice-stuffed chicken by Matteo Tine
You can't go past a golden roast chook, straight from the oven. If time's short, cook it pronto – the roast chicken thighs with green polenta or pan-roast marylands with artichokes and salad onions are ready in 30 minutes. If time is on your side, there's nothing better than a whole-roast chicken (and for what most likely be the most succulent chook of your life, you must try the yoghurt roast chicken recipe).
