Cook With Passion!
Well it bombed, I got home after work and I got a question of what DID you put in the chicken. It tasted horribly and smelt horrible as well. (That was the words, they weren't being mean just telling me the truth). I was disappointed because who doesn't want to create good flavours. I tasted it and I can sort of see what they mean but hey, at least the chicken was still moist.
I then decided to make a more gourmet version of a chicken, bacon, brie and canberry sandwich that my wife likes. So using the chicken from above, I cooked up some crispy bacon, and mixed it with the chicken (which I added some mustard, lemon and mayo) to make a spread (I whizzed it). I then used melba toast as a base and used a square pastry cutter to make it all nice and square. Using thinly sliced brie, I then toasted it so it melted slighty, layed some cranberry sauce and then using the rest of the bacon, I crumbled it up to give a nice crunchy texture on the top.
I was quite pleased with it. Quite the presentation on the plate. I might try it again and post some pictures to show you.
So all in all, it was a flop but I am new to the cooking game so you're bound to have some major hiccups. Next time, I'll won't practice on a £6 chicken. I was so looking forward to using the bones to make some stock. At least my knife skills are slowly improving.
Now just need ideas for using up the chorizo.
