Vegemite chicken I hear you query! Now if you don’t like vegemite this may not appeal to you. If you’ve never tried vegemite I suggest you give it a go. You’ve got nothing to lose. If you like vegemite, then if you haven’t already done this here is another way to enjoy vegemite plus chicken.

I’m guessing most readers have heard about if not tasted vegemite. Even if you aren’t Australian, I think it’s such an iconic Australian product (albeit owned by an American company) that most people know of it.

If you haven’t heard about it, then visit the website where you’ll learn all about this product which is the result of yeasty goodness.

If you don’t like vegemite but you like other spreads like marmite or promite, I expect you could substitute the vegemite out for the product of your choice.

What you need

  • Vegemite
  • Chicken (I used a piece of Chicken Maryland [thigh and drumstick with the skin on])
  • Bread (I used a piece of light rye bread)
  • Cheese (I used some Coon cheese which I grated)
  • Onion (I used some red or Spanish onion) thinly sliced
  • Other plant matter (Basically I’d be happy with just the chicken and the vegemite on the bread but there are people who also like other plant material)

What you need to do with all this stuff

  1. Lightly toast the bread, it’ll absorb the chicken juices anyway but if it’s toasted it’s easier to spread the vegemite so you’re not tearing the bread. It also means you could use some stale bread. In theory, if it’s just about spreading the vegemite more easily you could use a piece of frozen bread.
  2. Spread on some vegemite. If you don’t like a lot just use a smear, if you like vegemite a lot then coat the bread as thickly as you like.
  3. Add the onion rings
  4. Add the grated cheese
  5. Top with the piece of chicken
  6. Add some cracked black pepper
  7. Put into a 200 °C oven for 20 minutes and then 150 °C for 40 minutes
  8. After 1 hour remove the chicken from the oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes
  9. During the resting phase, you can prepare plant material. I used some avocado. I also had some chives and sliced red chilli as garnish.

How did it taste?

Salty! Of course, it’s salty, vegemite is salty. It also had that lovely cheesy oniony vegemite flavour coupled with the moist tenderness of the chook’s dark meat delights.

Final words

This is a quick and easy way to use up some bread and make it taste better with vegemite, cheese and onion. It becomes a substantial meal with the piece of chicken.
