La trajectoire du poulet
A chicken goes a long way in our house.
This chicken got some loving wednesday morning.
I sauteed some shallots, thyme and lemon with brown butter. Then I put this mixture under the skin.
It got some beauty sleep in the fridge all day.
Then it hopped into the oven in a cocotte and had a bath with celery. It came out crispy and beautiful, the lemon slices all browned and showing through the skin.
We had the chicken breasts with a salad and some sweet potato fries (and yummy spicy mayo).
Then, the bones went back into the oven. Roasty-roasty.
They bubbled away overnight with celery, carrots, onions, bay leaf, thyme... Homemade chicken stock kids!
And, last but not least, our lunch.
Delicious wraps with lemony chicken, celery, red onion & greens.
I put some sundried tomatoes in mine, hold the onion!
