Two chickens for the price of one. How could I resist? But that, of course, means I will be eating chicken, chicken, and more chicken, for the next few days. Jolly good thing I love chicken!
There are many things one can do with chicken. But one can get physically and mentally tired doing too many things in a small tiny kitchen with a big black dog sprawled across most of the floor space – it’s like a juggling act! I love cooking, but this adventure quite exhausted me, though ever the Aspie, I persevered, egged on by a sort of obsessive drive.
Anyway… I only managed a few variations.
Traditional soy sauce chicken drumsticks and wings.
Chicken breasts and drumsticks marinated with Hainanese Chicken Rice marinade and baked with garlic and carrots.
Chicken soup stock – from carcass.
Chicken sauté with tomato paste and garlic.
It’s all now neatly packed and stashed away in fridge and freezer, ready to be worked through systematically.
Last night, I had noodles with Chinese kale and chicken sauté.
Lunch today was baked chicken, carrots and home made bread.
Plenty more to come!
