NLEx: Makin' Chicken

roaring dragon, spore, monster friday

FINALLY. Marvel work (YAY MARVEL WORK) and the kids being on summer vacation (ACK SUMMER VACATION) kept me from doing NLEx with any speed. But here, FINALLY, is the sorta long-awaited NLEx on how to roast a chicken to deliciousness.

Notes on thermometers after the comic.










ETA: So sorry! Forgot to add the thermometer recommendation when I posted. The closest thermometer to the one I have is the Polder Classic Thermometer, which sells at Amazon for $20.17, but other sellers (via Amazon) are offering it for as low as $17.75.
A word of caution: do not wash the probe, wipe it down. A lot of the problems mentioned in reviews occurred from washing the probe. Why would anyone wash a thermometer? Geez.
One more thing: whatever probe thermometer you buy, make sure it isn't pre-programmed to only use USDA cooking guidelines settings. You can't set any other temperature on those. That's dumb.

Thanks to all who've given NLEx such a warm welcome. I'm really flattered and very, very happy to be drawing something that people are digging.


vogelein adds: "... and if you lack a roasting rack, you can make one out of delicious potatoes. Seriously, just quarter up enough of them to support the bird. Then you have roasted potatoes basted in drippings to go with your chickawn. Less equipment ftw!"

I'm making chicken this way next time. OMNOMNOM

The dancing chickens are a fond reference to the Peter Gabriel "Sledgehammer" video directed by Stephen R. Johnson. Aardman Animations and the Brothers Quay. Nick Park, creator of Wallace and Gromit, animated the chickens. I knew I liked that man.
