Sluttishly Savoury: Ginger Roast Chicken

I'm getting very into marinading at the moment. It might be because I work at home in Sluttery HQ, so I can make pastes and things and leave things in the fridge for hours, and it might just be that Asda's chicken is notoriously rubbish - even three expensive corn-fed free range stuff.

This marinade is easy, and it tastes fantastic - the flavours cut right through the breasts and you're left with a succulent and tasty dinner. Even if your supermarket does rubbish chicken.

You'll need:
  • 2 chicken breasts (skins on or off, it's entirely up to you)
  • 2cm chunk of root ginger, minced
  • 2 cloves or garlic, minced
  • 1 red chilli, chopped
  • olive oil
  • splash white wine
  • salt
Make it!
  • Throw your minced and chopped ingredients into a sandwich bag with the chicken and oil. Shake and smoosh about a bit (smoosh is an excellent word when it comes to marinading, trust me).
  • Tie up and pop in the fridge for a few hours.
  • When you're ready to eat, preheat your oven to 180.
  • Empty the contents of your bag onto a roasting dish. Pour a splash of white wine over your chicken and make sure the spices are surrounding the breasts. Add salt if you've left the skins on so they'll crisp up.
  • Pop in the oven for 30-35 minutes, fill your house with yummy smells and serve with green salad. Vow to never eat plain boring chicken again.

  1. Really into marinades as well (and salad dressings) as both are a way of snazzing up something that could be boring with VERY little effort. If you come up with any more brilliant marinades, please post!! Yesterday's chicken one this end was: garlic, ginger, honey, olive oil, soy sauce, red onion, yellow pepper and paprika (not sure whether this last one added anything though). Got thumbs up from me AND the man!
