My trials, tribulations and triumphs while attempting to bake my way through Lorraine Pascales book, Baking made Easy, and hopefully proving that yes, it is.

Quick Roast Chicken
Well, this probably won't be one of the most interesting posts I make, after all its roast chicken. Nice, but its roast chicken. Chicken joints cooked with lemon zest, garlic and thyme. Lorraine seems to have a thing for thyme, lots of her recipes use it, luckily we have an incredible amount growing in the garden, one of the few things I managed to keep alive. Instead of roast potatoes though, you roast Butternut Squash along with the same ingredients. It was a nice change and a lot easier the potatoes as there is no need to cook first. Just to make it even more exciting, I steamed some cabbage in butter to go with it, which was actually really tasty!
