and More Chicken for MidWeek... Weds 30th Jan 2013

There seems to be a theme for this week... if I start clucking you will know why.

But what is there to discuss about fabulous midweek roast chicken?  Thighs and drumsticks are so cheap compared to breasts and whole chickens, and I think have tons more flavour. Cook them for longer than you think, I give them about 45 mins, roughly the same length of time as the potatoes, at a good high heat. With a spritz of oil and lemon juice, some salt and pepper.

With roast potatoes and can you see that creamy stuff? Fast bread sauce.. mmmmmm...  cubes of stale-ish bread, a finely chopped shallot some salt, pepper and lots of nutmeg, add enough milk to just cover, bring to the boil and simmer for about 5 mins until the bread can be mashed into the milk. So good...
