Chicken is a superb meal at any time, there are so many ways of cooking.

Roasting, grilling, frying, for casseroles, curries, stir fry, barbecued.

Chicken is a meal easy to cook for a family, but fancy enough for guests.

I have added a couple of easy chicken meals for cooling autumn weather, you can serve them hot or cooled, nice with a salad.

    • Most times I make it with Chicken Stock Cubes. Three cups of water to a cube, if you want the stock stronger cut back the water. When you cook a roast chicken, save the juices from that, but I always make gravy from the juices and if I don’t my husband will put it in a mug and drink it while it’s still hot so it doesn’t work for me. Yes use chicken cubes, that’s the easy way out making the stock.
