  • 1 rooster (weight approx. 2 to 2 and 1/2 kg)
  • 10 black pepper balls
  • 120 g of parsley
  • 200 g of carrots
  • 100 g of celery
  • 150 g old bread
  • 200 g dried sausage
  • 5 – 6 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cube of fresh unsalted butter
  • 20 g semi-coarse flour
  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • A pinch of citric acid
  • 1 handful of freshly chopped parsley
  • Salt to taste


  • Put the well-cleaned rooster in a pressure cooker with the entrails, add water, a few grains of black pepper, cleaned carrots and celery.
  • Cook gently in a pressure cooker. If we don’t have a pressure cooker, we use a regular one and cook until the rooster is soft.
  • After cooking, remove the rooster and the vegetables from the pot and finely chop the innards and the cooked vegetables. Place in a medium-sized bowl.
  • Add finely chopped dried sausages, slices of bread pre-soaked in water and squeezed, chopped parsley, pressed garlic, ground black pepper and salt to taste.
  • We fill the cooked rooster with this stuffing and sew it up with kitchen thread. Place in greased baking pan and brush with melted butter from 1/4 cube on all sides.
  • Preheat the oven to 220 degrees. Bake in a preheated oven and, if necessary, baste with the stock that we kept in the pressure cooker.
  • Leave the finished rooster with the stuffing in the turned off oven and prepare the sauce.
  • Melt the remaining 1/4 of the butter in a pan, dust with flour, fry and cover with broth, approx. 2 cups. Season the sauce with a pinch of citric acid, salt and ground black pepper to taste.

Tip: Try to prepare a spicy version of the rooster sauce.
What you will need:
1 cup of distilled white vinegar, 4 cloves of garlic, 1 teaspoon of flaked salt, 230 g of fresh hot chili peppers and 2-3 tablespoons of honey.
How to do it:
Mix the vinegar, garlic and salt in a 250ml glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. Remove the stem from the chili pepper and chop coarsely, including the seeds. Add to a jar, cover and let marinate on the counter overnight.

The next day, pour the contents of the jar into a small saucepan, stir in the honey and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook for 5 minutes, but try not to inhale the fumes from the pot.

Transfer the mixture to a blender and blend for about 5 minutes to make a smooth sauce. Again, avoid inhaling the fumes. Transfer to a bowl and add honey to taste, stir in with a spoon. Strain the finished sauce into a clean jar with an airtight lid. Let it cool in the fridge before serving.

Slow Roast Rooster

This recipe will delight you, because after cooking, the meat falls apart and completely melts on the tongue. Of course, just like a rooster, chicken can also be prepared.


  • 1 rooster (approx. 2 – 3 kg)
  • 1 chemically untreated lemon
  • 1 large onion
  • 4 – 6 cloves of garlic
  • 1 mug of beer or wine
  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • Salt
  • Herb mixture (thyme, licorice, parsley)
  • Water as needed


  • We start by salting the whole rooster and preheating the oven to 150 degrees.
  • Clean the onion and cut it into quarters together with the lemon.
  • Peel the garlic, press it, mix it with herbs and spread it on the rooster.
  • We place it in a roasting pan, sprinkle with pepper, throw in chopped onion and lemon, add beer or wine and close the lid.
  • Then put the baking pan in the preheated oven and bake for 3-4 hours.
  • We continuously check how the liquids have evaporated and add water as needed.
  • We need to end up with juice/sauce left in the roasting pan, but not too watery, otherwise it won’t taste the way it needs to.
  • At the end of baking, remove the lid, increase the temperature to 200 degrees and bake for another 30-40 minutes.
  • Roasted vegetables and boiled potatoes are good as a side dish. Pour the juice from the rooster over them.

Rooster breast roasted in a pan

Preparing a rooster is often a lengthy matter, because when we get our hands on an older piece, it can happen that the meat will be as stiff as a sole. But that doesn’t mean it’s not good meat. On the contrary, it is very tasty and, when prepared well, pleases our taste buds.


  • 2 teaspoons steak seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked ground paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet ground paprika
  • 2 boneless and skinless rooster breasts
  • 1 tablespoon of sunflower or extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of butter


  • Mix steak seasoning, smoked paprika and sweet paprika in a bowl. Rub the rooster breasts liberally with spices on all sides.
  • Put oil in a large pan, heat to medium heat.
  • We move the pan so that the oil reaches the entire bottom.
  • Add the chicken breasts and roast for 8 minutes without turning. If the breasts are thin, only 5 minutes is enough.
  • Then turn the breasts over and repeat the same baking procedure.
  • Add a spoonful of butter to the pan, let it melt and turn the breast several times to coat it in the melted butter.
  • Transfer to a serving tray, let it rest for 5-7 minutes, and only after this time can we cut the chicken breasts and serve.
