Recipe Ingredients

There are many uses for mayonnaise and this smart idea of using it to bind the stuffing and flavour the chicken results in a delicious and moist roast the whole family will love.


  • Stuffing:
  • 3 slices toast bread, crumbed
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Gregg's Mixed Herbs
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • ¼ HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD™ Original Mayonnaise

  • Chicken:
  • 1.5 Kg fresh or frozen and thawed chicken
  • ¼ cup HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD™ Original Mayonnaise
  • ½ tsp Gregg's Lemon Pepper Seasoning

Recipe Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan assisted).
  2. To make the Stuffing: In a bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, onion, Gregg’s Mixed Herbs, parsley and ¼ cup HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD™ Original Mayonnaise.
  3. To prepare the Chicken: Pat the chicken dry inside and out with paper towels. Fill the chicken cavity with the stuffing. Tie the legs together. Place in a roasting pan.
  4. Mix together ¼ cup HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD™ Original Mayonnaise and Gregg’s Lemon Pepper Seasoning. Spread over the chicken.
  5. Roast for approximately 1½ hours (30 minutes per 500g). To check if the chicken is cooked, insert a skewer into the thickest part of the thigh. The juices will run clear when cooked.
  6. Remove from the oven, cover lightly with foil and allow to rest for 5–10 minutes before carving. Serve with roast potatoes and your favourite green vegetables.
