I make no secret of the fact that I am a gamer, and that a lot of my work also requires me to be in front of the computer (or Cintiq) and sometimes, the work here is very hard to interrrupt! Or the party grind session.
I call this chicken bake this because I realized one afternoon, after immersed in Lineage II that I hadn’t thawed any meat and the children had just come home. This meant – oops – that dinner would need to be ready, or at least cooking by the time Rhys got home! My darling man would be tired and hungry, and my pride refuses to not at least have some food warm and ready!
Fortunately for me, I had bought a store-cooked roast chicken from the grocery, and I have a pantry of canned goods! It was hot, so I didn’t want something too heavy, but wanted it hearty enough to satisfy growing children and grown men.
It was satisfying and delicious without being too heavy, and the last bit of leftovers were enough to make me a lunch.
It occurs to me that this would also be a nice way to use up leftover ham, or turkey.
This went beautifully with steamed sliced potatoes that had a bit of butter melted on top of them.
