Wednesday evening and Handy Andy
. . . aka the halogen oven. OK, so this evening I cooked four chicken thighs (free range, organic, happy chick ones) for about 35 mins at 200 C and they were scrummy. They were cooked in a glass bowl, no cover, and in an ordinary oven they would have dried up in that time. In Handy Andy they were succulent and moist, with a crisp skin that tasted wonderful! That's two eaten and two for lunch tomorrow! Where does the 'Handy Andy' come from - well the oven is an Andrew Jones make but the wonderful Cottage Smallholder calls hers Andrew, so Handy Andy seems the next best thing. Tomorrow is a simple re-heat of a lasagna. Must try a roast at some point.
