6.7 Sunday
Chicken Sunday roast

Sunday roast chicken

Apple Pie


4 chicken portions
2 large potatoes
Yorkshire pudding
Garlic, sliced
Flour, 8 sp
1 egg
½ pint Milk
More thyme, chopped
Hot water


Remove the skin from the chicken portions, sprinkle over 2 sp seasoning and rub it in. Place in a baking tray with one or two slices of garlic placed under the chicken, plus a stem of thyme.

Drizzle over a sp of oil and put in the oven to cook.
Wash the potatoes and cut into eight. Place them in an oven proof dish and drizzle with oil. Place the skin side down and pop it in the oven.

Heat some oil in a dish in the oven until hot. This will be for the Yorkshire pudding mix.

To make the Yorkshire pudding, mix the flour, eggs and milk and chopped thyme together. Pour the mixture into the hot oil and cook for 40 minutes.

When the chicken is cooked, add about ¼ pint of hot water into the baking tray and return to the oven for a couple of minutes. Remove and pour off the liquid into a small saucepan. Add some more hot water if necessary, stir in a cornflour mixture to thicken your gravy.

Prepare the vegetables and serve.


Apple pie


2 apples
Flour, 8 oz
Butter, 3 oz
Sugar, 1oz


Firstly, make the pastry by rubbing together the flour, sugar and butter in a bowl until they look like fine breadcrumbs. Use a small amount of water (two dessert spoons) to help bind and knead it into a ball.

Put it in a bowl and place in the fridge for half an hour.

Take the pastry from the fridge, roll it out and remember to flour your surface and rolling pin. The pastry should be rolled out to slightly larger than the shape of the pie dish and to a thickness of 2-3mm.

Put any excess pastry to one side.
Place the rolling pin on top of the pastry and lift the pastry over the rolling pin and use the pin to pick it all up so that you can line your pie dish with the pastry.

Slice the (uncooked) apples and place them on top of the pastry. Cut away the excess pastry and use this to create a pastry pattern over the top of the apples and place in the oven to cook for about 40 minutes.
