Thyme (and Roast Chicken)

Posted By Kerri

As is tradition, on our first evening back from holiday we cooked roast chicken. On arriving home we noticed that our thyme plant had almost doubled in size. It seemed sensible therefore to stuff the chicken with thyme. It was delicious. We ate a lot of great food in Spain (more of which to come later) but we were both looking forward to our roast chicken and it didn’t disappoint.

We used some Golden Wonder potatoes from Sainsbury’s Heritage range, they soaked up a lot of oil but turned out really fluffy and crunched up brilliantly. We also had leeks, purple sprouting brocolli, runner beans and some fresh peas. While the chicken and potatoes were brilliant, the vegetables were even better. Something I think we can teach the Spanish 🙂

    I love your tradition of having roast chicken on return from holiday. I got back from Tuscany today and actually rather wish I had bought roast chicken for tonight. Perhaps, I’ll do one tomorrow. I can’t believe how much my garden has grown whilst I’ve been away either!

    I saw on your blog you’d been to Tuscany, it looked lovely. I was actually craving spaghetti bolognaise as well but satisfied that craving tonight 🙂

    That’s one hell of a thyme plant. I had a thyme plant once but it was in my student days when I lived in a basement flat. It didn’t like the dark and so I had to eat it at a quick pace before it just died!
