Fun with Chickens

I’m cooking a chicken for dinner tonight. That’s right. A chicken. Those of you who know me and my food oddities might be surprised that I would even look at a whole dead chicken, much less cook one!

First of all, the cookbook described tucking the legs in some sort of skin fold that I couldn’t find, and don’t even get me started on the thing I pulled out of the inside of the chicken. I don’t know nor do I want to know what it was but seriously? EWW!

So then I put the chicken in the roaster thingie, rubbed it with garlic, tossed on some more herbs and hoped for the best. It’s in the oven now for 1 hour 45 minutes so we’ll see how it turns out!

Anyways, I’m looking for new recipes so if anyone has anything good they want to share with me, feel free!

And also, thank your lucky stars I didn’t think to take pictures of the chicken preparation because whole chickens are kind of funny.

  1. I have a chicken in my slow cooker RIGHT NOW.

    Here are some of my favorite food network recipes:

    baked macaroni and cheese:,1977,FOOD_9936_18422,00.html

    baked spaghetti:,1977,FOOD_9936_24294,00.html

    baked fish with pasta thing:,1977,FOOD_9936_27488,00.html

    I just realized those were all baked, I guess I like the oven because its a little more idiot proof. I also reccomend the cooking light recipes, they are usually really good.


  2. So the chicken turned out really well, even without the wing-tuck, so that’s a relief!

    Martha – can I just use any type of fish with that recipe? I don’t know much about cooking fish but it doesn’t say what kind to use!
