I still love roast chicken with roast vegetables, with stuffing and gravy and am happy with it for Christmas even though my husband makes the best stuffed turkey! I think that in more recent times, roast chicken has become less festive and more a family dinner favourite. What is your favourite poultry for Christmas?

These days, the humble "chook" has been overshadowed by Christmas turkey or even duck or goose. However, in Japan, chicken remains the top Christmas choice, but alas, the Japanese have made KFC chicken their Christmas treat. It is so popular that at Christmas time in Japan, you often have to place your order for the fast food chicken about a fortnight ahead! Hard to believe, because to me nothing about KFC chicken reminds me of Christmas - sorry! I will still be roasting my chicken in my own oven at home, but I have added a recipe for a really delicious stuffing which will make the everyday roast chicken the "hero" of the Christmas menu.
