I just made (and devoured most of) a batch of Pickapeppa Chicken. It’s insanely good and quite easy, as you see.
I marinated the chicken thighs for two days. Since he used indirect heat, I just roasted the thighs on a rack in a 400º F oven. As recommended, I cooked the thighs skin side down for 20 minutes, then turned them. I checked them after 30 minutes on the second side, and they were more than done. Next time I’ll check at 25 minutes. (I imagine that his timing on the grill just reflects that the grill is not so well insulated as my oven.)
If you think cooking on the grill adds a smoky taste that you like, a small dash of liquid smoke in the marinade is the simple solution (liquid smoke itself being a simple solution of smoke in water): completely authentic smoky flavor.
I think this would be a great recipe to make with chicken wings.
This one is definitely a keeper. I particularly like that the marinade is so easy to put together.
I highly recommend the movie Torso, a recounting of a true crime, chronologically told from the discovery of the eponymous body part through the trials, with flashbacks from time to time to illustrate what is being recounted by one of the characters.
In fact, it strikes me as a good date movie in that there is much to discuss about the ending.
Not (yet) available to watch instantly.
These are all well worth reading:
Fascinating conversation between Lawrence Lessig and Ezra Klein. Do watch it.
