Recipe #33 Roasted chicken with black truffle

My parents were kind enough to obtain an Italian truffle or two, and we got one. I found this recipe online. It was pretty good, but in the future I would just grate the truffle over pasta, or incorporate it in a cream sauce.

1 chicken
black pepper
1 small onion, peeled
10 fine slices of black truffles
10ml black truffle oil
30g butter

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas 4.
2. Generously season the cavity of the chicken with salt and freshly ground pepper. Place the onion inside the cavity.
3. Using your hands separate the skin of the chicken from the chicken breasts. Gently slide the truffle slices between the skin and the chicken flesh.
4. Rub the truffle oil and butter over the chicken and place in a roasting tray.
5. Roast the chicken for 45 minutes. Turn off the oven and let it rest for 10 minutes.
6. Carve the chicken and serve it with the truffle mashed potato.
