Chicken Maryland with a cheesy crusted skin

I do love Chicken Maryland

I’ve posted a few Chicken Maryland recipes here but I can’t help myself it’s my favourite cut of chook. The Chicken Maryland contains the best parts of the chook, viz., thigh meat, lots of excellent skin and the crunchy cloaca with a level of fat that gives it so much flavour.

  2. Cheesy chicken is a firm favorite. I wonder what the UK equivalent of coon cheese is. Also i notice that I am invited to follow your blog by email, which i already do. WordPress does weird things like that

    And I just noticed the form above didnt prefill my details like it usually does, even weirder

    1. Hmm a few people have said similar things about WordPress at the moment. I know that users are getting weird configurations when they’re trying to interact with users. I’ll steel what I can do my end.

  3. We had chicken maryland last night too. My husband cooked it in a dish in the barbeque. He put the marylands on top of roughly chopped capsicum, red onion and zucchini tossed in a little oil. He cooked the vegies for about half an hour before putting the chicken on top. The end result was delicious.
