Winter’s have officially arrived in Perth and I love it. Sadly the winter’s here are not terribly exciting but there is a nip in the air and you can feel your body aching for some warmth all the time. Winter’s have to be my favorite time of the year, I wait for them like a lover who is waiting for the object of their desire to come back from their yearly holiday.
I love the winter jackets, mittens, socks, boots and coats that one gets to wear during this time, I love the way the cold breathe escape our mouths every time we talk, I love holding a warm Coffee cup in my my hands and touching it against my cheeks to give me warmth.
There is also something deliciously comforting about a warm oven on a cold evening. So for this month’s INA Friday where our choice was from a whole range of Ina Garten’s Main dishes, I decided to make a Lemon Chicken with Croutons.
Now I have made Roast Chicken several times but this time I used Butter to coat the Chicken and served it on a bed of Croutons. The Butter just gave it a lovely crispy skin and the Lemon’s inside the Chicken meant the Chicken was nice and Juicy from the inside.
The best thing is I had to literally do nothing, I just stuck everything in the oven, poured me a Glass of Wine and watched a movie. By the time the Movie was over and the wine was gulped down the Chicken was ready. Now why wouldn’t you make that The Chicken was so juicy it almost fell off the bone. I served it with some Peas and Carrots.
