So we are back in the cold..
Actually it’s not too cold .. Still ..
Easy food is required .. And there is a new range of stock brined chickens in my favourite store.. (The one that moved yet now have actually got used to it ..)..
So hmm.. A stock brined chicken?
It says to put the whole thing in the oven.. Bag and everything.. Which seems quite weird as the bag is printed also? I double checked and there is no ‘ outer and inner’ bag.. So hey ho.. Let’s go!!
That cooked for an hour and a half.
In order to flavour it up .. Ghormet sabzi lebanese herbs.. And Himalayan pink salt and thumbs up thai white pepper..
That chicken is juicy as juicy can be!
So juicy I had to pour off juice..
And it kinda fell apart which was very annoying.. Still good smelling succulent chicken!
Onto the chips.. Chicken and chips.. Why is that such a great combo? Worldwide ?
And these chips based on my pal Prudys recipe..
Chopped Maris pipers.. Boiled in water with a good splash of white wine vinegar in..
For five minutes .
Then cooled on a rack..
Then fried off in sunflower oil in uncle bens wok.. ( am outta Mrs Middletons).. And drained on ikea brown paper..
Dried dill and onion powder with a little turkish dried pepper.. Plus Himalayan pink salt.. Into a steel bowl.. The chips tossed in it..
The pics cannot explain just how lovely these chips are..
Seriously good.. Oh and the veggies?
Nah.. No veggies ..
