Roast Chicken

Posted By Stephen


It has become something of a tradition for us to have roast chicken when we get back from holiday. So, having been away in Scotland last week, we had roast chicken today. Kerri realised recently that we haven’t cooked the same thing twice so far this year and we were worried that having roast chicken would break our run of different dinners, but as it turned out we have been strangely lacking in roast chicken so far this year, so the run is intact.

Yesterday I worked on a roasting time calculator, which you might or might not have noticed in both the sidebar and also on its own separate page. It doesn’t look very pretty yet, but I’ll fix that soon. Of course, roasting a chicken today meant that I got to use it properly rather than just testing it. Which was very exciting of course.

The chicken turned out to be nice but not brilliant, not sure why as they usually turn out really well. The potatoes were really good though, as were the parsnips. Stuffing was good and the carrots were nice and carrotty and not too sweet. Lemony baby leeks were good but a little too lemony in places. Kale was okay. Gravy was really good when I tasted it in the pan but seemed to have lost some flavour on the plate for some reason.

    There is nothing like a good roast chicken, is there? It is the most homely meal that there is.
    I love the new look you have here – very smart!

    Thanks Antonia 🙂 I really look forward to coming home to roast chicken now, it’s really comforting after the new dishes you invariably end eating while you’re away.

    The new look is taking a bit of getting used to, it feels like we’re house-sitting at the moment!

    Oooh a new look! Love the colour change to your blog.

    Great photo of roast chicken!

    Thanks Pixie 🙂 I wish I had removed the string from the chicken before taking the picture; usually we remove it as soon as we start preparing it and it therefore just doesn’t ever feature but didn’t this time for some reason.
