Here is link for the baxsh stuffing Baked Turkey Baxsh, however OMIT THE WATER COMPLETELY because the chicken will give off plenty of fluids while baking. Pat dry your chicken and season with the spices listed above. Place it in the center of the foil pan lined with parchment paper and greased with cooking spray. Stuff the cavity with about 1 cup of baxsh. Don’t pack it in. Spoon the rest of the baxsh around the chicken. Cover with foil tightly and bake for 2 hours. Open and stir all the baxsh very well. Spoon out the baxsh from the chicken cavity and mix it well with the surrounding baxsh and re-stuff it. Cover and bake it for an additional hour. Serve immediately or store in a glass container for up to 3 days. Enjoy!!

1/2 Cup Brown or regular parboiled Rice, washed* (see note)

1 -1/2 Cups White Medium Grain Rice, washed (I use Kokuho yellow)
1 Large Sweet Onion chopped
5 Bunches Cilantro, washed, dry asmuch liquid as possible on paper towel or salad spinner (chop 4 bunches finely and process 1 bunch in food processor to extract the chlorophyll for a more green pilaf)
1 Boneless, Skinless Turkey Thigh trimmed of all visible fat & chopped to 1/4″ cubes (or you may use any protein you like)

1/3 Cup Avocado Oil
1/2 Cup Homemade Chicken Stock or water (omit completely if baking with a whole chicken)
Salt & Pepper to taste
1- 9×13 Foil Pan lined with parchment paper
Cooking Spray

*Note: you may use 1 cup brown parboiled rice and 1 cup white rice just add another quarter cup of water of stock.

Heat oven to 350F. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Grease pan with cooking spray. Pour your mixture into foil pan and cover tightly with foil. Bake for 2 hours mixing the Baxsh well with a wooden spatula every 30 min. If you see that the rice is too dry after the first hour you may add more water or stock.
