After two days munching on barbequed bits and pieces, we felt the need for some vegetables. So it was roast chicken today. I bought in season spring greens, which are so sweet and delicate.
Why not buy a slightly larger whole chicken and cut it in half. I'm sure a good supermarket or butcher would oblige if you ask them. You save money roasting half a bird - and if you are busy, it doesn't take as long to cook. Then you get to make another new meal with the rest.
Here's HOW TO ROAST CHICKEN (and make tasty gravy) - which has never failed to provide a succulent result. I would recommend buying a small thermometer for checking the temperature rather than guessing when it's cooked. You'll be amazed at just how tasty the gravy is, and you won't even need a stock cube either.
You'll find this sort of meal comes in at around 400 calories with all those steamed vegetables. And if you've enjoyed a Bank Holiday like we have, then this will go some way to making amends!
REMEMBER: We all have a calorie allowance - do you know yours?
We began our weight loss journey in January 2011 - and began our blog in June 2011. Here's a link to the first post. (here's the link).
We like to post our main meals to show you what CAN be eaten. You won’t find us posting every last morsel though – but we hope this gives you an idea of how far calories can go! I'm currently going through the photographs and replacing them with more website friendly versions which will allow the blog to load quickly.
