I didn't do anything at all for dinner tonight. Ok, maybe a little, but I could barely call it cooking. I cut five potatoes in half and placed them cut side down in my slow cooker. Then I opened a marinated chicken, and balanced it on top of the potatoes. Closed the lid and set on LOW for 10 hours. Oh yeah, I did chop up some more potatoes and some carrots, and microwave them on high for 10 minutes, then tossed them in oil with a few peeled cloves of garlic, and threw the lot in the oven at 200°C for about half an hour. I didn't even serve up - DP did (hence no nice plated dinner photo). I went and fed Master Three-Month-Old instead.
It wasn't really this white - it's just glare from the flash, honest!
Everyone wanted the crispy oven roast potatoes, so I was left with ten beautifully chicken-y flavoured potatoes, that were admittedly kinda mushy. I made this with them:
I didn't get any roast because we're having Roast Chicken Calzones tomorrow and I was worried there wasn't enough leftover meat. But I ate all of these myself, since DP didn't want to eat any after chocolate - he'd been snacking on the big Toblerone the kids got him for father's day, during NCIS. These were great potatoes - not very crispy really, but I didn't use a brush with the oil, I just kinda flipped them over and rubbed them in the oil in the pan (leftover from roasting the dinner vegies) Still nice though.
I ate this whole plate myself - good thing I didn't end up getting dinner then!
Don't forget Kids Cooking Thursday gets interactive this week! I whipped up a little banner you can use if you like, and I'm in the process of making a little square button for sidebars too.
