here as the menu suggested, is mind-blowing.
2. No weekend is complete without seeing how far you can get without the aid of the internets.
3. The Boy Wonder
5. The fruit bowl
6. Chicken with tarragon and asparagus
Derived from a Nigel Slater recipe, brown the chicken pieces skin side down, it will spit. A lot. This is not the dish to cook if you might be wearing a low cut top or a boob tube. Polo necks only. This is not a date dish, because nobody wears a polo neck on date. This was decided in the pub on Saturday night.
Turn the chicken over, throw in a handful of tarragon, cover and cook until the juices run clear.
Remove the chicken, pour off the fat, deglaze the pan with a glass of white wine.
Add cream, creme fraiche or other dairyness, and another handful of tarragon.Reduce by half.
Return the chicken, poke in asparagus, cook a bit more, add a squeeze of lemon and season.
What i love about Nigel's recipes, is that they are easily adaptable, you could make this with thyme, or mustard instead of the tarragon, or add mushrooms, or other things. I never seem to have all the ingredients for a recipe, even if i set out to.
Did you have a good weekend? Did you cook chicken? Did you wear a boob tube? Does anybody wear a boob tube?
