If you are looking for some interesting whole chicken recipes for parties or get together, then try this easy and delicious grilled chicken stuffed with potatoes and roasted along with cherry tomatoes and sliced onion. I have placed bacon on top of the chicken so that the fat from bacon melts and roast the chicken beautifully and the additional butter is to enhance the taste and crispiness of the chicken. The juice from the stuffed lemon also gives a lovely flavor and it is optional. This can be served with any flavored dip or mint curd chutney.

1 Tsp Red chilli powder
1 Tsp Cheddar cheese powder ( Optional )

1 Tbsp Mixed herbs ( Oregano, Thyme Rosemary, basil and Dill )
