So after making Cornish game hens a couple of weeks ago and helping with the super delicious turkey this past Thanksgiving I thought it was time for me to try my hand at a whole chicken solo. I roasted a chicken in the oven which is more difficult than I thought it would be (it didn't cook all the way so I had to put it back in the oven after I had cut it up) but it was yummy. I served it with kale and potatoes.
Why make a whole 4lb chicken for only two people? Because, this chicken is going to get me through more than one meal. Tomorrow I'm going to try making pho for the first time... well not exactly, more like Asian style chicken noodle soup (more on that tomorrow). Tonight I will be making my very own chicken stock from the carcass and giblets.
Wish me luck, it's a lot of firsts for 24 hours.
