Roasted ladies fingers, layered potatoes and drunk chicken. - Narcissism is Necessary

Roasted ladies fingers, layered potatoes and drunk chicken.

I made dinner!

My 1st attempt at making layered potatoes was a success! Used the bf’s aunt’s recipe but I replaced crème fraiche with milk. Still turned out great – the spuds were soft & creamy with a crispy top.

# – Arrange sliced potatoes in layers. Season every layer with salt, pepper and chopped spring onions/onions. Then pour full cream milk up till just before the top of the potato layers. Pop into oven for 45-50 minutes at 160 degrees.

# – Check out the bubbling top. Woohoo!

# – Potato perfection /gloating mode on.

Roasted some ladies fingers too for a more balanced meal and they were perfect.

# – Ladies fingers seasoned with salt, black pepper, some butter, drizzle all over with olive oil and into the oven at 170 degree for 15 minutes.

Chicken dish was completely my own recipe – I’ll call it Kim’s Kickass Drunk Chicken :D Not to praise myself but the meat was soft and flavourful, so yummmy wish I had bought a whole chicken instead of half :P

# – Chicken marinating in a concoction of soya sauce, vodka, apple cider vinegar, sugar, chopped onions, spring onions, chillies and garlic. I kept some of the marinade mixture for making sauce later too.

# – Then, pan fry the chickens (discard the marinade). Once browned, remove chicken from pan and pour in some vodka to make a reduction with all the yummy bits. Then, pour in the marinade mixture saved earlier. Throw the chickens back in when sauce is bubbling and cook till cooked :)

And voila, a balanced meal!
