Chicken! April 15, 2010

Filed under: Food — kgnorman @ 9:20 AM

It’s been a while since I posted about food, mostly because I haven’t been too adventurous in the kitchen recently.  I had been wanting to roast a chicken for a while, but never seemed to make it happen.  I finally got impatient and cooked one up on a Monday evening.  The results were pretty good, and it’s hard to find a better bargain than a $4 chicken that provides at least 4 meals including leftovers.

Here’s our bird.  We had our housekeeper buy the chicken at the local market, where they butcher and clean them for you.  That way it’s fresh!

Ready for carving! I think I should have left in a bit longer to get the skin nice and crispy.

Quite a feast for a Monday night. My favorite part was actually the pan gravy. Delicious!

    That looks yummy! and you look wonderful, Keely!!! A tiny sprinkle of paprika on the outside of a chicken makes the skin a bit crispier… I don’t usually bother because we don’t eat the skin, but you can always try it for the photo! 😉 Miss you two (and a half!)!!
