3.7 stars from 10 ratings of Chicken Galantina


  • 1.3 kilos chicken, dressed and deboned except for the legs and wings
  • 1/4 kilo sweet ham, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sweet pickel relish
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup green peas
  • 1/2 cup white onions, minced
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1 small can liver spread or potted meat
  • 2 medium-sized eggs
  • 1 can chicken sausage
  • 4 large eggs, hard-boiled
  • 1 tbsp table salt
  • 1 tsp white pepper

Liquid for steaming:

2 pcs. chicken broth cubes

3 cups water

Cooking instructions:

  1. Marinate the deboned chicken in lemon juice or kalamansi, soy sauce and pepper for an hour then set aside.
  2. In a bowl, mix ground chicken, ground pork and white onions. Add raisins, sweet ham, cheese and peas then blend well. Add pickle relish, liver spread and beaten eggs. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix well and set aside in the meantime.
  3. Close the neck portion of the chicken using a string to secure the meat inside. Drain the chicken and put the mixture into the deboned chicken avoiding any space in between.
  4. Together with the rest of the stuffing, insert 2 hard-boiled eggs under the wings and 2 near the legs and 4 pieces of sausage arranged lenghtwise. Don't overstuff the chicken because steaming tends to expand stuffing.
  5. Close the chicken now then tie the legs with string. Using your hand, butter the whole chicken. Then wrap it and sew to edges to secure the stuffing.
  6. Cool the chicken at room temperature before removing the cheesecloth. Untie the strings, wrap it in foil and put in refrigerator.
  7. Carefully hold the legs and wings and take it out on a platter. Cut it in the center and make serving slices garnished with cucumber, bell pepper, lettuce and curled spring onion leaves.
