My DH sent me this recipe:
Here is a chicken recipe that also includes the use of popcorn as a stuffing - imagine that.

When I found this recipe, I thought it was perfect for people like me, who just are not sure how to tell when poultry is thoroughly cooked, but not dried out. Give this a try.


6-7 lb. Chicken
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is good.)
1 cup uncooked popcorn ( ORVILLE REDENBACHER 'S LOW FAT) Salt/pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush chicken well with melted butter, salt, and pepper. Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn. Place in baking pan with the neck end toward the back of the oven.

Listen for the popping sounds. When the chicken's butt blows the oven door open and the chicken flies across the room, it's done.

And, you thought I couldn't cook.........

Don't know the author, Sorry!

The Turkey POPPED Out of the Oven!

The turkey popped out of the oven,
and rocketed into the air;
It knocked every plate off the table,
and partly demolished a chair.

It ricocheted into a corner,
and burst with a deafening boom;
Then splattered all over the kitchen,
completely obscuring the room.

It stuck to the wall and windows,
it totally coated the floor;
There was turkey attached to the ceiling,
where there had never been turkey before.

It blanketed every appliance,
it smeared every saucer and bowl;
There was no way I could stop it --
that turkey was out of control!

I scraped and I scraped with displeasure,
and thought with chagrin as I mopped;
That I would never again stuff a turkey
with popcorn that hadn't been popped.
