Red Onion and Orange Chicken With Hassleback Potatoes

Tonight I'll will tell myself, I'll wake up brave knowing that the thought of sleep ; the very thought of sleep worries me , I put in perspective that sleep allows me to be creative . Yesterday it was randomness acts of kindness day , I don't need a day to highlight this as every day is a random act of kindness either to myself or other people . The world Is a much less scary place with kindness in it I find . 



There is a place in the world for no fuss food which delivers the result of beautiful food.


I was going to call this recipe "A Chicken surprised By a Red Onion and Oranges " but thought it don't sound flouncy enough 




Ingredients

Chicken obviously ( not a live one otherwise the chicken will not take kindly when you try and shove an onion and orange segments where the sun doesn't shine )

Orange segments

A whole red onion

Apple Vinegar a splash/ or a little splash


Sprinkling of good quality salt and pepper.


Method

Preheat the oven to 200 C

Place the chicken in a roasting dish

Place the peeled red onion and orange segments up within the cavity of the chicken ( these are not to be eaten at all and must be discarded )

Splash the chicken with a little of the apple vinegar , and sprinkle with salt and pepper

Cook for 1 hour 20 , rembering to out your hassbleback potatoes in if you want .

Hassleback Potatoes 

I slit these potatoes 1 cm part or tried to making sure I didn't slit all the way through to the bottom . As there were 3 of us I did 3 potatoes ( genius )


Method

Preheat cook the potatoes for about 10 minutes in the microwave

Spoon done melted butter over .


Then they joined the chicken in its last 30 minutes of cooking and Et Voila a Masterchef masterpiece.
