“The Best Roast Chicken Ever” from “The Skinny French Kitchen”

Maureen: The best roast chicken ever is a pretty bold claim. What do you think?

Tim: It’s good.

Andrew (13): I agree.

Maureen: Sure, it’s good. But is it THE BEST?


Nicholas (10): That’s hard to say. Roast chicken is always good.

Maureen: That’s true. Maybe we could say that it’s ONE of the best. We couldn’t say it was the best.

Andrew: That makes sense.

Maureen: Was it a faff to make, Tim, since you had to fry up the mushrooms and herbs and then stuff them under the skin?

Tim: No, it wasn’t too bad. It’s Sunday lunch– it’s worth the effort.

Maureen: I have to point out is her “skinny tip” for this recipe is to just get a smaller chicken so that everyone will have smaller portions. That’s just silly, if you ask me. So I got a bigger chicken and now we can have chicken pot pie later this week with the leftovers.

Tim: Yum. Chicken pot pie.

Maureen: Indeed. So maybe this wasn’t the best roast chicken ever, but it might be the best chicken pot pie ever, with the added mushrooms and whatnot. Watch this space.
