The weather is cooler, and Hubby and Youngest are missing a ‘proper’ dinner i.e Meat and 2 veg 🙄 So they will have a Local Meat Pie, Mash, peas and gravy.
For me, I am cooking Chicken.
I bought a plump whole chicken from Aldi this week, and rather than make a traditional roased bird, I am going to slow cook it. This will make several dinners for us, a curry for Tuesday, a low carb Chicken and Cauliflower gratin, Chicken Salad and soup for me for a week of work lunches, I could stretch it further, but the menfolk are big eaters and 12 meals out of one bird isn’t too bad 😇
I have done ‘Rubber Chicken’ before Here is a link to several posts, very worth it if you are saving a few pennies, and don’t want to compromise on flavours.
I pop the whole chicken into the slow cooker, with just a little salt and pepper on it, This will cook for about 6 hours and produce moist juicy chicken that literally falls off the bone.
The bones will be put back into the pot with a little more water (the chicken juices are left in there) then add some carrot, celery, garlic and onion, along with some thyme and Rosemary
this is cooked overnight to make a really good stock.
This will be chicken soup for my work lunches 😊
I am having a chicken salad for dinner to use up some of Veg in the fridge.
