Step 1: Day one: Roast chicken
Step 3: *Preheat your oven to 190 degrees.
Step 5: *while this is preheating you want to make 8 very small slits in your chicken’s skin
Step 6: (6 over the breast area and 1 over each leg.)
Step 8: *slice your garlic lengthways into chunky spikes. and insert into the holes you have made so the garlic is beneath the skin along with sprigs of your rosemary.
Step 9: (i tend to use butter also, this will make the chicken taste yummy and moist)
Step 11: *now rub oil really well all over the chicken (imagine your giving her a massage!)
Step 13: *now sprinkle lots of pepper and a little salt over the top.
Step 14: (this will make the skin lovely and crispy!)
Step 16: * pop it in the over for about an hour, after about 30 mins tip the chicken up so the juices inside run out the hole. (when these come out clear its a good sign its done)
Step 18: *while your chicken is cooking slice up your potatoes into chunks and boil when done dry them well with a tea towel. (weird i know but trust me!)
Step 20: *now get a pan hot with a generous bit of oil in it and throw in the potatoes and stir them around-be really rough so they have "fluffy" bits on them but are still solid
Step 22: *pop these in the oven on an oiled tray to brown, turning regularly.
Step 24: *to check a chicken is cooked you should grab yourself a skewer and put it into the thickest part of the chickens leg. put it in as far as it will go and then remove and push with it on its side just below the hole. liquid will run out. if this is clear its dont if it comes out red/pink in colour give it another 20 mins.
Step 26: Use up half of the chicken (i use one side of the breast) to go with your roast tatoes and save the rest for tomorrow.
Step 28: Day 2: Chicken salad
Step 30: Pretty self explanatory!
Step 31: *chop up your salad veg
Step 32: *add your chicken
Step 35: Day 3: Real chicken noodle soup
Step 37: * We now going to make ourselves chicken stock (-=
Step 39: * (I wear gloves for this but its optional) Get your chicken carcass and pick any and every piece of chicken on it off (thats light and dark meat! get messy and destroy the chicken a bit or you’ll miss lots of meat!) put all this in a bowl to one side
Step 41: * Place the chicken carcass pieces (or what used to be a carcass!) into a large pan.
Step 43: *pour over enough boiling water to just cover it
Step 45: *add your carrots, onion and bay leaves and lots of pepper.
Step 47: *bring to the boil for 30 mins and then leave with a lid on to gently simmer for another hour/ hour and a half.
Step 49: *the liquid will go a light milky colour and become "chicken flavoured" when ready
Step 51: *now this bits a little messy! with a large spoon (preferable one of the ones with holes in) fish out all the bits of chicken out that you can, try to keep the carrots but dont worry about the onion.
Step 53: *Now pour the liquid into a jug or container through a sieve and throw away any other lumps aside from the carrot.
Step 55: *pour the liquid (stock!) out of the jug back into the pan back onto the heat stick in the instant noodle and when they begin to break up and soften add your chicken pieces and tin of sweetcorn cook till the noodle are done and chicken is hot and enjoy!
Step 57: Overall three meals for two people at roughly £8.74 which leaves you with about a quid left to make it a tenner, could pick up a frozen apple strudel for pud one night perhaps?
