🍲 How to Make Gordon Ramsay Stuffed Chicken Legs

  1. Take off the skin and pull the meat toward the finger. To break the bone, use a knife and a kitchen tool, which is also called a meat tenderizer. It is very easy to break. Keep the skins.
  2. Take the meat off the bone and cut it up into smaller pieces that will fit in a meat grinder. You can make chicken soup with the bones. This is how I make it.
  3. Add the carrots, onion, and garlic to the meat and grind it.
  4. Mix in the egg, parsley, and spices.
  5. Fill the skins up full. Don’t worry—nothing will explode or run out. Don’t need anything else or toothpicks to hold them in place.
  6. Put the chicken legs that have been stuffed on the baking sheet and use paper towels to dry them off very well. That will make the skin really crispy.
  7. Add some olive oil, lemon pepper, and honey. This is the trick to getting beautiful caramelized skin.
  8. Put a lot of caraway seeds on top and roast in an oven set to 350 F for 45 to 55 minutes.

💭 Recipe Tips

  • Deboning Carefully: Take your time when deboning the chicken legs. A sharp knife and patience are key to maintaining the integrity of the skin for stuffing.
  • Grinding the Meat: Ensure the meat, carrots, onion, and garlic are ground evenly. If you don’t have a meat grinder, finely chop them or use a food processor.
  • Seasoning Well: Don’t skimp on the seasonings; they’re essential for flavor. Adjust the chili flakes according to your heat preference.
  • Mixing Thoroughly: Mix the ground mixture with the egg, parsley, and spices thoroughly for even flavor distribution.
  • Stuffing the Skin: Be generous but careful when stuffing the skins. Overfilling might cause the skins to break.
  • Securing the Ends: Although toothpicks aren’t necessary, you can use them if you find the skin doesn’t hold.
