Chicken... thing

Bear in mind that what you see in these photos is a dish after I'd already partly tucked into. I was hungry I only remebered after a while :-)

Organic chicken legs dipped in a mixture of flour, paprika, cumin and cayenne (S&P too). I would have put in other spices, dried chilli for example, but I was between TV shows so I was rushing (hence the ripped parsley for the potatoes :-)). I dusted it off and roasted it for 40 mins.

The ickle potatoes I simply boiled in salted water and smothered them (after crushing) in butter and parsley.

Looks incredibly tasty chicken! I love the sound of spices you've put in. Btw, are those Jersey new potatoes? Looks perfectly done to me :)

I too love crispy chicken skin.

Sorry Mrs Jersey, I don't think they are, they weren't sold as Jersey's anyway. They usually make that point stand out. They were yummy none the less :-)

you´re making me blush :-) I imagine it was a dvd of the x-files or something and the football. I can´t remember now... I´ve just spent the last week being driven through England, France and Spain. I´m currently in Madrid... I´ll post soon with my thoughts.

I forget these spices exist, then find nothing else but them in my cupboard and deide to use them in inventive ways. I have a good memory... I don´t remember specific recipies but I do record the ideas I think and use them. It´s a gift ;-) Hasta luego!
