Chicken Alexa

Thursday 12th January 2012
This is something I haven't cooked for ages. The chicken is roasted and then served with a creamy sauce with mild spices. Fry onions in butter and then added flour and garam masala and cook for a minute or two. Gradually add half a pint of chicken stock and cook for 10 minutes, then add lemon juice, cream and honey and heat through. In this case served with basmati rice and a spoon of bulgar wheat salad.

  1. A variant on this is to roast the chicken with a sprig of lovage tucked inside it, then serve sprinkled with chopped lovage. Adds an intriguing green note to the dish. If you can get hold of lovage, we find it grows like a weed - also good as a cold vichyssoise-type soup.
