Cookbook of the month, April 2015, “A Bird in the Hand” by Diana Henry

Kirstin: I had such a lovely chat with her on Twitter. She’s such a nice person.

Maureen: I saw that. She made some good recommendations, too. We really liked her last book a year ago.

Kirstin:  I really like Diana Henry. I’ve got all of her cookbooks.

Maureen: Are you worried about eating a lot of chicken this month?

Kirstin: We eat a lot of chicken anyway, about three times a week, so I’m not worried.

Maureen: I’m slightly concerned it will call for weird ingredients, but I will persevere.

Kirstin: I’m happy to find odd ingredients for Diana Henry because I know the end result will be worth it.  I”m looking forward to the flavours after the bland month we’ve had.

    I made her chicken with smoked paprika this weekend, and can recommend. Just salt, pepper and paprika, bit of oild to make it stick. I seasoned mine then stuck in the fridge overnight. Cooked with potatoes for 2 hrs. Made the aioli, v good tho less yellow than hers, and did steamed asparagus and big green salad. Lovely relaxed Saturday cooking. I did not do nearly as much pimenton as she calls for, as I was worried it would burn and taste bitter. But really scrummy chicken and delightfully faff-free.
