Method
* Pre-heat the convection oven at 190 degree celsius.

* Mix all the stuffing ingredients together in a bowl. Stuff the neck end of the chicken quite loosely, allowing space for breadcrumbs to swell during cooking.

* Tuck the neck skin under the bird to secure the stuffing and hold in place with the wing tips, you may also use a string.
* Place it in a roasting tray and cover the chicken with bacon (optional).

* Spread a little butter, cover loosely with foil and roast for about 90 mins.

* Baste with the juice in the roasting tray around 3-4 times during cooking.

* Add chicken stock, and seasoning and bring it to a boil. Strain and serve with the roast chicken.
