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!
