Sticky chicken thighs with lemon and honey, 6 large chicken thighs, bone in and skin on, handful green olives, pits removed, sliced, small handful fresh flatleaf parsley, leaves only. The pickled lemons add a pleasing spike of acidity to the pan juices. So far so good. Add these and a ton of fresh mint, and you have something seriously Middle Eastern. Add them at the end of cooking, not the beginning. I slice the meat as thin as paper, wrap it in lettuce leaves, tucking in tufts of fresh mint and coriander, squeeze over the juice of a lemon, or better still a ripe lime, and grind over a little too much salt. Return to the oven for 10 minutes. I don't stop stuffing the Sunday joint just because it's summer, but I do use a lighter base such as couscous or bulgur wheat. A fragrant everyday kind of roast for which you will need a fruity olive oil and a fine bird. Introduce the olive oil then both the fresh lemon juice and the chopped salted lemon rind.
Best of all, an oven in the house means roast Sunday lunch.
Place 4 plump chicken thighs, skin up, among the peppers, pour over 6 tbsp of olive oil and season well with salt and black pepper. From Nigel Slater’s Simple Suppers.
The recipe. The effect they introduce is different altogether from the fresh fruit - at once more aromatic and saltily piquant. Lemon and mint is a striking marriage of ingredients.
Serves 2. 1 tbsp black peppercorns; 2 lemons, juice only ; good squeeze or two of runny honey; dollop grainy mustard; 2 garlic cloves, crushed; 6 large chicken thighs, bone in and skin on; sea salt, to taste; 2-3 preserved lemons; handful green olives, pits removed, sliced; small handful fresh flatleaf parsley, leaves only; Method.
Halve two pickled lemons and scrape out and discard the flesh.
In summer I add young herbs to the pan stickings.
Season the chicken and put the pieces in a roasting tin.
Chop the lemon shells into small pieces then add to the juices in the roasting tin and continue cooking for a couple of minutes. Nigel Slater demonstrates straightforward, down to earth cooking, filmed at his home vegetable patch and on friends' allotments. Place the chicken thighs into a large roasting tin and pour the lemon and honey mixture over the chicken, leaving it to marinate for as long as possible.
Bake at 200C/gas mark 6 for 50-60 minutes until the chicken is golden brown and crisp and the peppers are soft. Pour over enough olive oil to moisten them and make a shallow pool in the tin. Massage this lumpy paste into the boned lamb then set aside for a good 3 or 4 hours. It is best kept in a cool room but the fridge will do. A shot of lemon juice would be good at the same time as the preserved lemons. Slice 4 long, thin romano peppers in half lengthways, remove any seeds, then cut each half into two short lengths.
Cut the skin into strips and toss together with the olives and parsley. Shaken with a measure of olive oil, the two form a basic summer marinade for chicken destined for grilling or lamb for roasting. Enough for 2.
Lay the lamb fat side down on a work surface and season with a grinding of salt. I like to get the lettuce for it really cold and crisp by soaking it in a bowl of water and ice cubes for 20 minutes first, turning my eccentric little snack into a veritable delicacy.
Remove the lamb from the oven, test it for doneness, put it on a warm plate and let it rest while you make the gravy. This recipe is by the peerless Nigel Slater. 6 free-range chicken pieces, bone in olive oil 2 juicy cloves of garlic 1 lemon a large handful of basil leaves (about 30) a glass of white wine. Email Nigel at email@example.com, Mint condition: Nigel Slater’s chicken with peppers, mint and lemon recipe.
Slice 4 long, thin romano peppers in half lengthways, remove any seeds, then cut each half into two short lengths. I pull the whole thing into a tight parcel and wolf it, standing up in the kitchen. It's finger food - don't even think about using knife and fork, or serving to anyone you're not comfortable with. If they cook too long they will add a sour back note to the dish. So, for instance, a 2kg leg of lamb will take a total of 1hr and 20 minutes to roast to rose pink. Shaken with a measure of olive oil, the two form a basic summer marinade for chicken destined for grilling or lamb for roasting. I must first roast the meat. Peel the garlic and mash it to a smooth paste with a pestle and mortar, then pound in the peppercorns so that they are lightly crushed. Summer roasts are, at least in my kitchen, markedly different to the rich winter versions with their heavy red wine or madeira gravies. Amazingly, a friend has lent me their spare cooker. Peel the onion, slice it finely, then fry it in a little olive oil over a gentle heat until it is pale gold and sweet.
When the wheat has soaked up the water, stir in the onion, chop the herbs and stir with the lemon and a seasoning of salt and freshly ground black pepper. Squash the garlic in its skin and tuck it in amongst the chicken. Cover the meat with the stuffing.
Weigh the lamb to determine its cooking time. When the chicken is ready, serve sprinkled with the olive, parsley and preserved lemon mixture.
You can use slices of aubergine instead of the peppers.
That way, once I have poured a glass of white wine or boiling water over them, the pan juices are alive with clean-tasting mint, coriander and lemon.
I then add enough red chilli to make my eyes sparkle. Keep them thin, and add more oil if necessary. Each programme takes us through a week's worth of simple suppers. I have a somewhat eccentric way with the leftover Sunday roast.
Sprinkle with sea salt, to taste, then cook in the hot oven for 45 minutes, turning halfway through cooking so that the thighs become lovely and sticky.
I must first roast the meat.
A new one will arrive with the kitchen refit now pencilled in for November, but the thought of the next six months without a roast or a cake is unbearable.
I slice the meat as thin as paper, wrap it in lettuce leaves, tucking in tufts of fresh mint and coriander, squeeze over the juice of a lemon, or better still a ripe lime, and grind over a little too much salt.
A chicken dish made sparky with lemon and more than a hint of mint, Last modified on Tue 9 Jul 2019 09.43 BST. If I had to pick out just one ingredient with which to brighten summer meat, it has to be lemon. Baked chicken with tomatoes and olives for Nigel Slater Dish of the Month As my contribution to "Recipe of the month" challenge hosted by Janice who blogs over at Farmersgirl and Sue who blog over at a little bit of heaven on a plate, I have chosen a recipe from Nigel Slaters kitchen diaries II.
Having managed without one for months, Nigel Slater finally gets his hands on a cooker.
Not just fresh lemons, but the Moroccan ones preserved in brine.
Do the same with 2 ripe yellow or orange peppers, then put all of them in a roasting tin. Pour into a warmed jug.
I then add enough red chilli to make my eyes sparkle. Photograph: Jonathan Lovekin for the Observer. But I am jumping the gun.
Baste the chicken from time to time with the juices that collect in the bottom of the roasting tin. I use it with chicken, of course, stuffing a halved one inside the bird à la Nigella Lawson before it gets to the oven, but also in the marinades and gravies for pork and even lamb. Set the oven to 230 C/gas mark 8. I don't think I've done much mucking about with it, for once.
A startling juxtaposition of hot and sharp, soft and crisp.
Sweet and sticky with crisp skin, this recipe makes the most of chicken thighs. Popped from their skins, the roasted cloves can be squished straight into the roasting juices along with the herbs.
Put the roasting pan over a moderate heat and add the wine.
A startling juxtaposition of hot and sharp, soft and crisp.
