One of the things I learnt from my cooking class at 3 Seeds Cooking School was using aluminium foil to shroud and protect meat. It got me thinking that I could use aluminium foil to fashion a ‘bowl’ of sorts to capture the tasty salty oily chicken fat from a piece of Chicken Maryland as it cooks. To put that fat to good use, the bowl can contain vegetables or grains that can absorb the tasty goodness of the chicken fat.

It’s so simple to do and makes for a delicious accompaniment to my baked chicken.
