It is day 28 and I have to write about the first time I did something. Just a few weeks ago I baked a whole chicken for the first time. I know you're thinking, "Finally! A post about food!" At least I am! I love posting about good recipes, especially since I came up for the way I prepared the chicken all by myself.
First, I removed the giblets. Then I combined EVOO, salt and pepper, and Tajin together. I coated the inside and outside of the chicken with the mixture.
Here is a picture of the chicken not quite done yet. Still very pretty, I think.
Despite my impatience, the chicken turned out very well. It was juicy and the skin was spectacular. I know eating the skin probably isn't the healthiest, but I couldn't help myself.
There are some dishes that every grown-up needs to know how to make. In 2009, I made my first pork roast and it was so good I called it pork candy. I felt very grown-up making a pork roast and I felt very grown-up making this chicken. For some reason, baking a chicken always intimidated me, but it really shouldn't have-the only thing that was difficult about it was being patient. If you've never cooked a chicken before, I recommend this website, helpwithcooking.com. The cooked chicken didn't last long in my house and I am looking forward to the next time chicken is on sale!
