you can mix ingredients together first. then cook. just make sure chx is not pink in middle. I would make stuffing first, it wont get mixed together if you put it on top of chx and bake off.

As long as the internal temperature of the chicken itself gets to around 170 degrees F. you can cook it however you want.

prep everything 1st then stuff the chicken raw - it will be fine as long as you are carefull.... chicken germs are not to be messed with. I always rinse the bird 1st then stuff it. Good Luck

Yes. Cook it all together. Don't cook your bird first. Just make sure your stufing is at room temp before stuffing and cooking the bird. That's where most of the health concerns come from. Warm stuffing in a cold bird makes for lots of time for harmful bacteria to grow. To be safe, you can also put your stuffing in a... More

Yes to pre making the stuffing. Make the stuffing, stuff the bird, and bake away. Premaking the stuffing, ensures it will be done when the bird is.

When you cook a stuffed Turkey, you prepare your stuffing, either home made, or following the instructions on the stuffing mix box. Then you fill the body cavity of the turkey, put it in the oven, and cook it for the recommended amount of time. The turkey and the stuffing will cook together... More

I would make the stuffing seperate from the chicken because when you stuff a bird the chances of getting salmonella are much higher then making it stove top. the bird insulates the stuffing and the juices don't really flow out of the bird; they are basically trapped in the stuffing which does give it more flavor but...

if its IN something its stuffing (hence the term STUFF) if its separate its DRESSING.
Answered By: BBQ MASTER3 - 1/3/2007
Just a thought, but according to Alton Brown on Good Eats on Food Network, stuffing the cavity of a chicken or turkey is just asking for bacteria and not advised. He advises to cook the chicken seperate and the stuffing seperate, then assemble after it's done. I know people stuff their poultry all the time, but after... More

When baking a cut up chicken, I often put the pieces in a roasting or cake pan and surround it with cut up potatoes, fresh mushrooms, raw carrots, celery, etc. Pour cream of something (celery, mushroom or whatever you like) soup on it, cover it with foil with a couple of small holes in it for venting, and bake it at...

I never stuff my bird, but if I were to, I'd cook my stuffing first, then out it in the bird to bake all together. OR, I'd half-cook my bird too before adding the cooked stuffing to it.

I would cook my chicken halfway through first. That way you can bake alot of the fat off of the chicken so that the excess oil would not end up in your stuffing. Then add your stuffing after the chicken is half done so that by the time the chicken is done the stuffing is moist and perfectly done without being dried out... More

As long as there is liquid for the stuffing you can cook it all together I do that kind of thing all the time Sounds tasty good luck!

I had stuffing and chicken the other night! Just wash the chicken and put whatever seasoning on it or just leave it plain...then just make the stuffing and put it on top of the chicken or put it in the middle of the dish with the chicken surrounding it....Its really tasty! Hope I Helped! Haley

If you're baking a chicken there is no need to cook it any other way first and you can mix and add the stuffing in the chicken before you back it. Make sure you bake well enough so there is no pink left near the bones.
