The Artist From The Inside Out

This is one pretty Bird!  My fiancée’ has perfected the art of roasting chickens.  We  found this great recipe (and we have tried it twice thus far) in my Bon Appetit magazine. I will post the recipe at the end of this blog post.

Mmmmmm….mmmm, they are a great looking pair of legs.

Hey, hey no picking!

Sweet Plum Tomatoes, to make us a nice salad.

Crisp and fresh!

I whipped up a fragrant and light ” Lime vinaigrette”   to toss into our salad.

Jalapeño and scallions ready to sauté with rice,  for our last side dish.

Saute scallions, the peppers, and olive oil with a fresh squeeze of lime juice toss in some white rice and season with salt and pepper.

Tasty stuff!

Finger licking’ , down home,  crispy and  succulent roasted chicken with salad and jalapeño lime rice!

Woo! Hoo! Good Eats.

Yum Food!! Yum Art!!

RECIPE

Roast Chicken with Rosemary, Lemon, and Honey

6oz. rosemary sprigs (about 2 large or 4 small bunches), divided

2 4-lb chickens

1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

2 Tbsp. honey

2 lemons, 1 halved, 1 sliced into eight 1/4″ rounds

1 lb. shallots, peeled

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a large roasting pan with 3/4 of rosemary sprigs.

Place chickens on top.

Whisk 1/2 cup oil, lemon juice, and honey in a small bowl to blend.

Using your hands and beginning at the neck end of chicken, gently lift skin away from breast.

Under skin of each chicken, rub 3/4 cup lemon mixture into meat.

Drizzle remaining lemon mixture all over outside of chickens.

Place 1 lemon half and 1 shallot inside each chicken cavity; stuff with remaining rosemary sprigs, dividing equally.

Season chickens all over with salt and pepper. Place remaining shallots around chickens; arrange 4 lemon

rounds on top of each chicken. Drizzle shallots and lemon rounds with remaining 2 Tbsp. oil.

Roast chickens, basting frequently with pan juices, for 45 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 425 degrees

and continue roasting until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh

registers 165 degrees and skin is deep golden and crispy, about 10 minutes longer.

Spoon pan juices over chickens, shallots and lemon slices

and serve in roasting pan.

( We halved this recipe to make for two of us, and it was still delicious)

Succulent Roasted Chicken

A delicious roasted chicken recipe created by my wife.

I was reading my monthly subscription to Bon Appetit, and it inspired me to make a Skirt steak from a portion of one of their recipes. Of course I tweaked it to what we had in our pantry. I don’t keep ALL fresh herbs on hand, wish I could, would and did, instead I substituted the fresh oregano for dried oregano. No biggie though, still turned out delicious!  It was a luscious marinade, well more of a wet rub, with lots of smoky paprika, garlic, sweet Florida onion (instead of shallots) red pepper flakes, fresh garlic, dried oregano (instead of fresh oregano), the zest of one lime with its’  juice (instead of an orange) and a couple of tablespoons of canola oil. I salted the skirt steak liberally with Kosher salt and marinated it at room temperature for 1 hour. Then I opted to broil it instead of grill it outside in the HOT Florida sun, well… really we don’t own a grill!

Alas, fantastic flavors, perfect for an indoor barbecue!

Red hot smoky-ness!

Yum! A perfect char and succulent taste!

This one I made up myself, easy to put together since I had some super fine produce on hand from the farmer’s market.

Peach Tomato Salsa

Peach Tomatoes with a Georgia Peach add a sweet variety to this fresh salsa

Fiery jalapeno!

Fresh organic parsley and cherry tomatoes

Chop it all up, mix it in a bowl…

Fresh squeezed lime juice

Perfect on Skirt steak!

Farm fresh and snappy green beans!

Tasty Skillet Potatoes

Taters rock!

Time to eat!

Bon Appetit!

A down home indoor barbecue!

Yum Food!! Yum Art!!
