I don't know if you've all be watching Jamie's Great Britain, but he had an amazing recipe for a roast chicken and potatoes that they said would be on the website but obviously wasn't so I watched it again and quickly scribbled down the ingredients. I'm certainly going to try it and think you should too.
1 whole chicken to roast
Whole bulb of garlic, grated
thumb sized piece of ginger, grated
1 heaped tbsp of:
grated chilli cook for 1 hour 15 minutes on 200
2 good spoonfuls of yogurt
juice of two lemons
season with salt.
mix all together and marinade chicken. score the legs as they take longer to cook and make sure the marinade gets in there. should marinade for half a day ideally.
quick tip! boil a lemon for a couple of minutes, place inside the chicken to help cook.
marinade will burn a bit - it's the yogurt, pick it off after cooking if you don't like it.
Jamie puts his chicken in a roasting tray but on a wire stand, this way the chicken juice drips out and adds to the gravy he also makes consisting of;
1 cinnamon stick
a few shallots all mixed up!
2 tbsp of plain flor
1/2 pint of chicken stock
To accompany this dish he makes almost-bombay roast potatoes;
2 tbsp olive oil
knob of butter
add potatoes - whatever type you want and how many you want
Okay I'm hungry now so I'm going to raid the fridge,
