Roasted Chicken with Spicy Wild Rice Stuffing

Roasting the chicken along with the stuffing makes for an easy dinner, especially good if you can cook it on a real roasting spit. To complete the meal, cut zucchinis lengthwise and brush them with olive oil & Iguana Gold mixture (1/4 cup olive oil and 1 tsp. Iguana Gold Island Pepper Sauce. Grill during the last 15 to 20 minutes of cooking, remove and sprinkle with grated Parmesan or Romano cheese before serving on the side.


• - 1 2-1/2 to 3-pound whole chicken
• - 3 tablespoons barbecue dry rub for chicken
• - 1/2 cup wild rice
• - 1/2 cup white rice
• - 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
• - 1 cup chicken broth
• - 1/2 cup chopped onions
• - 4 sun-dried tomatoes chopped
• - 1 tablespoon Iguana Red Cayenne Pepper Sauce
• - 1/2 teaspoon dried sage, crumbled


Rub the chicken with the barbecue rub, being sure to put some under the skin. Allow the rub to penetrate at room temperature while you prepare the stuffing.

In a sauce pan, cover the wild rice with 1-1/3 cups boiling water, return to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 40 to 45 minutes or until tender. It is not necessary to drain the rice thoroughly, but drain off any excess water.

Saute the white rice in the oil for 2 to 3 minutes. Bring the broth to a boil, add the white rice, and return to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Do not drain.

Add the wild rice, onions, tomatoes, Iguana Red Cayenne Pepper Sauce, and sage to the rice and mix well. Spoon the mixture loosely into the chicken cavities. Secure the neck skin to the back of the chicken. Insert the spit rod through the bird, tie the wings together, and tightly secure the bird to the rod, and place a drip pan under the bird on the grill. Or if you are not'spit privileged', just grill it on a rack with a drip pan under it, turning it a bunch while you watch it brown. Lower the cover and grill over a medium heat for 2 hours or until the chicken is done.
