  1. Preheat oven to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C).
  2. Spread cornbread cubes out on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon basil, 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley, 1 teaspoon sage and 1/2 teaspoon oregano. Toast cornbread mixture in preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally (do not crumble, but dry completely).
  3. In a large bowl, toss cornbread with chopped onion, fresh parsley, melted margarine, egg yolks, ricotta cheese, and Parmesan cheese. Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  4. In a large bowl, toss potatoes with 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, 1 teaspoon basil, 1 teaspoon dried parsley, 1/2 teaspoon sage, 1/2 teaspoon oregano and 2 tablespoons oil. Place in oiled roasting pan.
  5. Fill chicken loosely with stuffing. If any is left over, put it in a greased baking dish. Brush with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Cover, and bake for 1 hour, or until potatoes are tender. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees F. Leave the lid off, and bake for another hour, or until juices run clear. Baste chicken with pan juices every 15 minutes. If you have a baking dish of stuffing, bake it in the oven the last 30 minutes. When chicken is done, reheat the potatoes (I like to fry them in a little oil in a skillet to reheat).

Definitely not worth the effort. Would have been better off simply roasting a chicken and cooking potatoes/stuffing separately. Really looked forward to having this for dinner, but my whole fami...

I really loved this stuffing; very unusual and unexpectedly delicious. I was very uncertain how it would turn out but was pleasantly surprised. I think I will make the stuffing alone as a side...

Kinda good. wierd stuffing though.

Delicious. The chicken is moist, the stuffing savoury and the potatoes flavourful. I used a large 4lb chicken and so had to bake it for 4 hours instead of just 2. Also, I rubbed the chicken in b...

the chicken is just okay, the stuffing is really good.

Great gluten free stuffing. I didn't make the potatoes though. The chicken remained moist and juicy inside and crispy outside. The stuffing was delicious and was a treat on its own. Definitely w...
