In the 'Snails ginger dog has snuffed it' thread some smartarse suggested that the Chinese dish Beggars Chicken involved dog. It does not. But it sounds a fascinating slow cooked chicken dish. Do a Google. It is slow cooked chicken wrapped in foil / leaves / clay. I have found one where the 'clay' involves a kilo of salt, some flour and water to make a sort of salty flourly mud to wrap the chicken. So that is the plan. But every recipe I see has a different stuffing for the chicken. All Chinese. And I do not trust the Chinese. They turned the newsagents down from where my Auntie Ena lived into a take-away. My Auntie Ena died five and a half years later and I blame the Chinese. So, stuffing for a slow cooked (3 hours) chicken? Your thoughts? And don't tell me "You don't need to stuff them. They are already full". That is so old.
