-0400 Here's another recipe which is a great favorite of ours, and
which I clipped from a newspaper (Washington Post?) about 15 years
ago. It's called "Albanian Chicken", although I've never seen an
Albanian Cookbook, and have never seen another Albanian recipe, it
seems like something my great grandmother would have cooked. The use
of sauerkraut as a stuffing seems weird, but is characteristic of
Middle European cooking. You often find it mixed with
it's mixed with paprika and caraway seeds. The stuffing is
sensationally delicious, and the chicken comes out extremely tender,
every time. This is a recipe you have to cook to understand. Saute
onion in oil until golden, stirring often. Combine sauerkraut,
paprika, and caraway seeds with onion. Spoon as much kraut mixture as
possible into the body cavity of the chicken. Reserve remainder of
kraut for later Place chicken on roasting rack in a shallow roasting
pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1-1/2 hours. Remove pan from oven, take
chicken out. Pour off fat in bottom of pan. Spread remaining kraut in
bottom of pan and set chicken in pan. Bake another 1/2 to 1 hour to
brown. Season as desired. Leftovers make great sliced chicken and
sauerkraut sandwiches. (If your mail program renders the times weird
looking, they're 1.5 hurs for baking, and .5 to 1 hour for browning.
The "=BD" is ASCII 189 and= represents "1/2" in US English.)
