Roast Chicken

I love Sunday roasts and probably my favourite is a god roast chicken. I always buy a free range corn-fed bird as the flavour, and hopefully quality of life, is better. This week I roasted it with potatoes, turnips and red onions with streaky bacon slipped under the skin of the breast.

Good as the roast is I think the left overs are even better. As there are only two of us there are always plenty of leftovers. This week I made a chicken, chickpea and coconut curry with 2/3 of the leftovers and a chicken, leak, bacon and mushroom risotto with the rest. I didn't have time to make stock with the carcass, if I had I would have had had enough to make a chicken noodle soup as well. As it was there was enough for me to take into work for lunch as well as a pair of generous evening meals for two (as well as nibbles for the cats!).
