BARBECUE ROASTED LEMON DIJON CHICKEN

BARBECUE ROASTED LEMON DIJON CHICKEN

Technically this bird was cooked today in my oven, indoors, in the warmth of our land galley, but honestly it’s – 40 ° today with the wind chill factor and no matter how you slice it – 40 ° is the same in Celsius and Fahrenheit. But the basic principal still applies for barbecue roasting. The dijon rub can also be used on chicken pieces. Just place a piece of lemon on piece of foil, top with some fresh herbs…

MOROCCAN TURKEY BREAST

MOROCCAN TURKEY BREAST

Cooking poultry parts instead of the whole bird just makes so much sense to me. It takes much less time to prepare and cook which means a lot less stress for this Galley Kat. …plus on the boat it would be logistically impossible. According to the Bitten Word a big trend in Thanksgiving turkey this year is towards exotic global flavours so thought I would give our little feast a North African spin. MOROCCAN TURKEY BREAST 2 tsp ground cumin…
