Barry Manilow croons, Read 'em and weep. Who's from that melodrama era? How I love that song as a teenager. I remember reading the lyrics underneath my textbook during Chinese class : ) Anyway, today, I say, Roast 'em and wrap.
Waking up on a lazy Sunday without a care in the world - how blessed I am. I put my 1.5kg kampung chicken to roast after simply rubbing salt and sprinkling some freshly-ground pepper. Stuffed it with a lemon and some rosemary herbs and popped it in for an hour 20 minutes at 180. I added a tray of capsicum, pumpkin and garlic underneath it to catch the melting fats. Hope you enjoy my photos below.
|Thinking of this 'chick' got me out of bed this Sunday morning.|
|Rub salt all over. I decided to measure the amount of salt today.|
I used a tad less than 2.5tsp of salt and the taste was just right.
|Nothing less than freshly-ground pepper.|
|1 hour 20 mins later, it's beginning to smell like Sunday.|
|The roasties - capsicum, pumpkin, garlic - and some greens lie in wait for the main star to be carved.|
|I've learned to carve a chicken, thanks to a good video by the French Culinary Institute available on YouTube.|
|I plate up skinless breast meat for healthy husband|
and set aside the juicy and flavourful skin for kids.
|Popped the burrito wraps into the oven that's still hot for a minute or so.|
|How does this look for an easy Sunday lunch before church?|
|Not a great angle but my foodography skills are improving, right?|
