Andrew (13): Why did you give us so much chicken?
Maureen: Well actually, you were only supposed to have a breast each. But the chicken needed to have skin on it, and I didn’t get to Dring’s before they closed, so I had to buy the chicken legs because they did have skin on and the breasts did not.
Andrew: It still looks like a lot of food.
Maureen: Well, it probably is, but the funny thing is if you buy the leg with the thigh and the drumstick, it’s super cheap compared to the chicken breasts.
Nicholas (9): This chicken is delicious!
Maureen: What do you like about it?
Nicholas: Usually, the chicken has some sort of after taste, or some other flavour. This one doesn’t. I like that it’s plain.
Maureen: it’s definitely that. The sum total of its flavouring is olive oil, salt and pepper.
Nicholas: I like it even without the sauce. It’s very very very very very very very good.
Maureen: This is the first recipe from the new cookbook.
Nicholas: That gives me high expectations for the month.
Maureen: It has to be said that you’re not having the full meal because you didn’t want any shallot sauce. Your loss.
