Chicken Maryland again

Yes, I’m doing Chicken Maryland again. If you follow along on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram you’ll know that I buy salmon and chicken every week. I know that the thigh meat and skin aren’t the healthiest options but it has helped me cut back on red meat.

What you need for this dish

  • Chicken Maryland—1 piece so long as it’s not too big for your frying pan
  • Small nonstick frying pan
  • Quinoa rice—½ a packet of microwave quinoa rice
  • Avocado—I always eat a whole avocado because I’m too lazy to store remaining avocado in the refrigerator and cover it with lemon or lime juice to reduce the amount of oxidation and consequent browning of the flesh
  • Chilli—1 red chilli sliced, you can have it as hot as you like
  • Spring onion—sliced, as much as you want
  • Pepper—I like freshly cracked black pepper
  • Smoked paprika—I like adding some and hoping I dream well. Paprika causes me to have nightmares unless I go to bed in a happy mood and if I’m in a happy mood I often have happy dreams 😉
  • Caramelised onion—I’ve started to like the bottled variety but you could use home made stuff

What to do to make this one ‘pot’ wonder

  1. Heat up your oven to 200 °C (400 °F)
  2. Cook the quinoa rice in the microwave oven
  3. Set aside half for another meal
  4. Pour the remaining half into the nonstick frying pan and spread out evenly
  5. Add a tablespoon of caramelised onion where you want to place the chicken
  6. Place the chicken on top and then add cracked pepper and paprika to taste
  7. Place the frying pan into the oven and cook for 20 minutes
  8. At 20 minutes turn the oven down to 180 °C (350 °F) and cooked for 40 minutes
  9. Remove the frying pan and then add the avocado, chilli and spring onion
  10. Shoot the photograph after scalding your hand because you forgot to use an oven glove to pick up the frying pan by the handle
  11. Eat the meal from the frying pan because if you’re cooking a one ‘pot’ meal you don’t want to waste water and your time washing a plate.
  12. Be careful not to scratch the nonstick surface with your knife and fork. Yes, use a knife and fork, you’re not a bloody Viking. If you’re a shield maiden however, you can do whatever you like.
  13. Wash the dishes
  14. Write the recipe
  15. Blog (verb)

How did it taste?

Bloody superb

It had crispy skin and the quinoa rice was crunchy and had absorbed all the fat from the chicken.

The avocado gave it a nice creaminess while the chilli gave it a nice bang.
