~  Before stuffing the chicken, pluck any stray feathers on the exterior.  Make sure the chicken cavity is clean and remove any excess fat around the outer part of the opening.  Only place enough stuffing inside the cavity, to check…put the legs together and if there’s any stuffing being squeezed out, that means you have put too much.
