Recipe Meme

Wendy tagged me in a recipe meme. The thing is, my cooking style is quite intuitive so I very rarely use recipes but I’ll try to give the general vibe anyway!

Here are the rules:

  • Choose one ingredient from her recipe and post a recipe using this ingredient on my blog, linking back to the previous blogs that have posted a recipe.
  • Then tag four new people, and we will see how it grows.
  • To keep it exciting please post within a week of receiving the tag.

Wendy’s recipe can be used twice, first as a chicken casserole and then secondly using the casserole for a pie. I’m going to go with the chicken theme and give you a ballpark recipe for Asian roast chicken.

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole chicken
  • 1 t minced ginger
  • 2T soy sauce
  • 1 chilli, chopped
  • 1/2 cup reduced salt chicken stock
  • 1 T chilli flakes
  • 2 T 5 spice powder

Stuffing:

  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 3 spring onions
  • 1/2 cup dried apricots
  • 1 apple, grated
  • 2 T honey

Method:

  • Make the stuffing by chopping everything up and mixing it together. If you warm up the honey in the microwave it will mix better.
  • Stuff the stuffing into the chicken. Skewer chicken shut.
  • Sprinkle chilli flakes on chicken skin. Then rub 5 spice powder on.
  • Put chicken into over bag.
  • Pour chicken stock, soy sauce, ginger and chopped chilli into oven bag and seal.
  • Cook in oven at 180 degrees for about 2 hours. (Are you impressed? I had to look up on the internet how long you should cook a chicken for and at what temperature. My general practice is to take it out when it feels right and so far, that’s worked every time!)
  • For the last 20 mins, open the oven bag and remove the liquid, then replace the chicken (sans-oven bag) in the oven. You can use the liquid for gravy by adding some cornflour to thicken it.
  • I normally serve with pumpkin and mushrooms in a honey glaze and with a Chinese Cabbage Salad. (The one on the back of the Chang’s noodles packet is a good place to start if you haven’t made one before.)

I’m not going to tag people to continue the recipe meme, mainly because the instructions are given in the feminine form (though many men are excellent cooks – Dan Harris, if you read this, feel free to add one of your exquisite creations in the comments!) and most of the blogs I read are by guys! Which is because the blogs that I read most tend to be theological rather than personal blogs. Which begs the question, Where are all the women bloggers?

Here are the rules:
– Choose one ingredient from her recipe and post a recipe using this ingredient on my blog, linking back to the previous blogs that have posted a recipe.
– Then tag four new people, and we will see how it grows.
– To keep it exciting please post within a week of receiving the tag.

  1. Just to clarify Tamie, I personalised the instruction to the feminine form because I was sent it by a female! It was gender neutral originally I think. But I will admit, I chose females to pass it on to, thinking they were more likely to contribute. I think there are a lot of women bloggers out there, we just don’t confine our postings to theology – they are more ‘all of life’!
