Crispy sage and lemon chicken 0d80fb8

Crispy sage & lemon roast chicken

The night before, put the chicken in a medium roasting tin. Rub the salt generously over the skin and into the cavity, then grind over some black pepper. Push one half of a lemon into the cavity, then tie the legs together with kitchen string. Cover and chill overnight.

Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Dab a little of the excess salt from the skin using kitchen paper.

Mix the butter with the garlic and sage. Push the herby garlic butter under the skin using your hands and rub it over the flesh, making sure it’s evenly spread out. Stuff the thyme and bay leaves into the cavity, then put the remaining lemon halves in the tin around the chicken. Roast for 1 hr, then baste the chicken with the buttery juices from the tin. Roast for a further 20-30 mins, or until cooked through. Check the chicken is cooked by inserting a skewer into the thickest part of the thigh – the juices should run clear.

Transfer the chicken to a board, cover and leave to rest for 20 mins before carving. Slice and serve on a warmed platter.

Heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onion and fry for 10 mins or until softened and turning translucent. Add the curry paste and cook for 1 min. Stir in the coconut milk, chicken stock and risotto rice and bring to a simmer. Cook for 15-20 mins or until the rice is tender. Bring a pan of water to a simmer, add the eggs and cook for 7 mins. Stir the chicken and sweetcorn into the soup and cook for 5 mins to warm everything through. Season to taste and finish with the lime juice. Gently peel the shells off the eggs and cut them in half. Top the soup with the eggs and spring onions.

rice pudding tart

Lemon & blueberry rice pudding tart

Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Roll the pastry out on a lightly floured surface into a circle the thickness of a £1 coin. Line a deep 20cm tart tin with the pastry, leaving about 2cm hanging over the edge. Prick the base with a fork, then chill for 30 mins.

To make the rice pudding, put the milk, cream, lemon zest and sugar into a pan. Bring to the boil, then pour in the rice and stir. Simmer, covered, over a low heat for 15 mins, then uncover and cook, stirring, for 25-30 mins until the rice is cooked but retains some bite. Remove from the heat and stir in half the lemon curd and mascarpone, then leave to cool slightly.

Meanwhile, cover the pastry with a slightly scrunched sheet of baking parchment and fill with baking beans. Put on a baking sheet and bake for 15 mins. Remove the parchment and beans and bake for 15-20 mins more until golden. Leave to cool, then trim the edges with a serrated knife and set aside.

Whisk the jam until smooth and spoon into the base of the pastry case, spreading it out. Stir the eggs into the rice pudding and tip into the case. Bake for 20 mins until just golden and set with a slight wobble. Leave to cool completely.

Meanwhile, make the compote. Combine the blueberries, 1 tbsp water and the jam and microwave for 1-2 mins, stirring occasionally, until syrupy. The blueberries should be soft but still holding their shape.

Remove the tart from the tin, put the rest of the curd in a piping bag and pipe over the top, then drizzle over most of the compote. Serve with any extra compote on the side.

Christmas morning spiced bread

Sift the flour, salt and cinnamon into a bowl. Stir in the sugar and yeast, then make a well in the centre. Pour the milk into a small pan, add the butter and warm gently until the butter has melted. Pour into the well, then add the beaten eggs. Gradually mix to make a soft, slightly sticky dough. Turn the dough out on to a lightly floured surface and knead vigorously for 5 minutes until smooth. Put the dough into a clean bowl, cover with oiled cling film and leave somewhere warm for 11?2 hours or until the dough has doubled in size. Lightly butter a 900g loaf tin. Punch the air out of the dough and turn it out on to a lightly floured surface again. Knead once more until smooth, then knead in the walnuts and raisins. Divide the dough into three and shape each piece into an oval ball. Drop each ball side by side into the prepared tin and cover loosely with oiled cling film. Leave somewhere warm for 30 minutes until the dough has reached the top of the tin. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to fan 180C/conventional 200C/gas 6. Mix the egg yolk with 1 tbsp of water and brush over the top of the risen loaf. Bake for 20 minutes, covering loosely with a double sheet of foil once it’s nicely browned. Then, lower the temperature to fan 160C/conventional 180C/gas 4 and bake for a further 20 minutes. Turn the loaf out of its tin and tap the base – it will sound hollow if the loaf is done. If it doesn’t, return it to the oven out of its tin and bake for another 5-10 minutes. Cool the loaf on a wire rack. (The loaf can be sealed in a plastic bag and frozen for up to 1 month. If you slice it before freezing you can toast the slices straight from the freezer, otherwise you need to remove the whole loaf from the freezer the night before.) Serve lightly toasted, with butter and jam.
