Ingredients for four: Chicken for four Potatoes for four Spices: Mild chili, salt and pepper, parsley, ginger... Water Oil of your choice (I use chili and olive oil..) What I do is take enough chicken with skin on, to feed 4 appetites. Boil it for 10-15 minutes. Allow to cool a little, then dust it with spices: Spice Mix: 2 tspns MILD chili 1 tspn pepper half tspn salt 2 tspns parsley half tspn ginger Have the oven pre-heated to a moderate temperature On a lightly greased oven tray, lay the chicken pieces skin side up. The boiling process takes most of the fat from the chicken, and leaves you with a nice stock that you can freeze for later use. The baking will also give off a little fat, and you should baste the chicken with this to keep it moist. You basically cook the chicken in the oven for around 15-20 mins from this point. At the same time, I will have prepared potatoes to go into the oven with the chook. (More instructions follow in the taties recipe) Sliced and spicy potaties Enough potatoes for 4 persons, and then 2 for luck. Scrub but don't peel. Slice thickly, approx half inch thick. Lay onto the oven tray, but make sure both sides have a little grease on them otherwise they will stick to the tray. You may need to add a little more oil (I use chili oil, but that may be a little hot for The Parents). Keep an eye on these little suckers, as they will cook pretty quickly. The idea is that they will bubble up towards the end, and you will need to turn them over to get them all toasty on the other side as well. Sprinkle the potatoes and the chicken (make sure you turn them over at some stage in the cooking as well, but they should end up skin side up to make sure the skin doesn't get soggy) with the spice mix throughout the cooking time, to get the flavour through. In the meantime, prepare a simple tossed salad with a simple dressing so as not to compete with the flavour of the chook. Serve with the salad and a good Turkish bread (one of the ones that you rip apart, or a crusty one if you want something a little more elegant Mahlzeit!
