Ready for the tastiest Roast Chicken with a Orange Butter Rub followed by a fruity crumble? Then read on…
Roast Chicken with Orange Butter Rub, Roasted Vegetables and Creamy Gravy
Our family absolutely loves roast chicken and I love cooking it! Yes, there might be a few different components to prepare and, yes, it might all get gobbled up in less than 10 minutes, but it’s warming, nurturing food that fills the house with delicious cooking smells. Don’t be put off by the parsnips; I think kids like them because they are sweet, so they’re worth trying with your family.
Crunchy Fruit Crumble
Desserts aren’t served nearly as frequently as they were in the past, but there is still a place at the table for a fairly healthy and delicious fruit crumble. I’ve given options for various fruits, so you can make this whatever the season. It’s also worth buying fruit at the height of its season – when it’s usually at its best and cheapest – and freezing some. I add nuts to the crumble for added crunch, but they are optional. I also simplify the crumble and stir in melted butter, rather than having to rub in cold butter with your fingertips.
