Kirstin: You can always tell a recipe is a winner when you start planning the next time you’re going to make it!
Tom: Indeed. This would be great for entertaining, or even for Christmas. It was a real feast. I could eat that mayo for ever. But we ran out of chicken.
Kirstin: And I didn’t mess up the mayo! Thanks for your help with the separation of the oil from the gravy.
Tom: The garlic was great too.
Kirstin: Yes, but it’s a good thing you didn’t have too much of it, because we’re going to be in the car all day tomorrow. The chicken was so yummy that I forgot to have your roast potatoes!
Tom: They were rather good. I ended up dipping them in mayo instead of the chicken.
Kirstin: I should have thought of that! Very Belgian.
Tom: So what would you do differently next time?
Kirstin: I didn’t do the blowtorch part so I’d like to think of another way to crisp the skin a bit more, without the need for industrial equipment. Maybe grilling it would work. But overall, this recipe was a total winner.
Tom: Yes, we could just grill the chicken at the end instead. It would be good to have a bit of crunchy skin. But that is a very minor detail. This was fab, and I look forward to the next time we have it.
Kirstin: It was a faff, but I would be prepared to do that much faffing again, because it was so good.
