- Preheat oven to 180°C. To make stuffing, place bread in processor and pulse to form crumbs. Add kaffir lime leaf and parsley and pulse again. Add apricots. Add more kaffir lime leaves for extra flavour if desired. Mix in egg. Fill chicken cavity with stuffing.
- In a small bowl combine all marinade ingredients. Lift skin of chicken at the neck and slide your fingers underneath to separate skin from the breast. Brush or spoon some marinade under breast skin on both sides. Use kitchen twine to tie legs of bird together.
- Place chicken in a heatproof dish and baste with remaining marinade. Roast for 1 1/2 hours or until juices run clear when a skewer is inserted into thickest part of thigh. Baste frequently with pan juices during cooking.
- Once chicken has been cooking for 45 minutes, place potatoes around chicken. After 15 minutes, add kumara and pumpkin in a single layer. Turn veges a couple of times during cooking.
- Once chicken is cooked, transfer to serving plate, cover loosely with foil and let sit for at least 10 minutes before carving. Let roasting vegetables continue to cook until tender.
- Serve chicken and veges with salad and dressing.
