It was Sunday. And I was determined to have a fuss free Sunday. A Sunday where I could just relax and not get stressed up with cooking and washing up. Was it possible?
Of course not. There is no such thing as 100% relaxation because obviously housework is endless. You can never get it all done, can you?
The day before, I cleaned the house and got my partner's food prep done. Most of the laundry was completed plus some other nitty gritty stuff.
I had gone to Aeon for a preliminary grocery run to get some chicken so that I could have it marinated overnight. The marinade was a mish mash of tomato sauce, sweet chili sauce, oyster sauce, light soya sauce, loads of black pepper and some crushed garlic.
On Sunday all I had to do was chuck it all into the oven together with some (steamed) potatoes and sliced capsicum. While the chicken was roasting, I did some more housework. Arrghh!!!
Forty five minutes later, this tray of deliciousness came out of the oven.
That's what I like about roasted chicken. It is the sort of thing you do when you are lazy and it does not look like something a lazy person cooked.
Since the chicken was marinated overnight, the meat was extra tasty. I was very happy with this batch of roasted chicken. To make it even better, before roasting I placed some butter on top of each piece of chicken.
So that was my lunch with extras for the next few days.
