Stuffed Cockerels with Goat Cheese

Stuffed Cockerels with Goat Cheese

Christina Cherrier

Whatever the season, the smell of roasted chicken and herbs will always bring everyone back to your kitchen for a good evening dinner! We made this recipe not too heavy by baking cockerels instead of a whole chicken, so everyone can have every parts of the bird! No more jealousy anymore! Of course, you can use a chicken if you cannot find cockerels easily. Perfect for an outdoor dinner, enjoy these cockerels with a fresh glass of rosé wine.
