Home Cooked - Rustic Grilled Chicken
Another thing that am really looking forward is tomorrow dinner with my family, and this time I am going to cook for 8 people which included hubby and myself. Last year, we were away to Kuala Lumpur for a short break, and my sister was the one that cooking the Christmas sumptuous dinner for everyone at home, and this year, I would be the one doing this job.
First, I feel thrill, and second thought I am equally tense about the food that am going to prepare. Being a perfectionist, many times, you will just want to do your best to accomplish your task. In fact, for the past few days, I was busy searching recipes in the web, and surfing thru some famous bloggers’ website to learn their way of cooking.
And tonight, I managed to impress hubby by making this. It’s actually Dutch Girl Cooking Rustic Roasted Chicken, well, I did make a minor change to Rustic Grilled Chicken instead.
2 chicken thigh
1 large capsicum
1 large onion
2 medium size Australia Chat Potato (which I got it from Cold Storage)
5 clove garlic
5 slices of bacons
1 chicken cube
½ cup water
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon sweet paprika
Lots of black pepper
Salt to taste
3 tablespoon vegetable oil
I didn’t manage to find my wine opener, thus I omitted the white wine for this dish, which is required ½ cup. And also didn’t manage to get a large carrot for this as well. Anyway, it does impress hubby I guess I can’t ask for more of such compliments from him.
Once done, place these ingredients on the baking tray and I put the potato underneath the thigh
so that it could not cook into the juices.
Bring it to boil and let it simmer for couple of minutes. Then pour into the baking tray which had placed the marinated chicken thigh.
Would like to take this opportunity wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!!
