Skinless Roast Chicken With Fruit, Vegetables & Pumpkin

My newer type of cooking is far from being vegetarian.  There is no way I can become a vegetarian. I cannot live without meat, chicken, etc.

This so called "newer type of cooking" will try to stay away from starch such as potatoes and wheat (with all its products) . Unfortunately wheat products are many. These include pasta, white or whole wheat bread, cakes, pizza etc.

Ask your butcher to take the skin off your chicken.



Ingredients:
-  1 skinless chicken.
-  2 quartered onions.
-  2 Tbsp. garlic/ginger paste.
-  Fresh rosemary and thyme.
-  Minimum salt and pepper.
-  2 apples quartered skin on.
-  2 fresh prunes pitted.
-  1-2 oranges sliced peel on.
-  2 sweet green peppers.


-  Any other vegetables you may have (didn't have any other this day).
-  1 kg pumpkin skin on (it was too hard to take off so it was cooked skin on) cut into 1 inch slices.
-  Nutmeg / cinnamon / coriander powders to taste.
-  1 Tbsp. turmeric.
-  1 cooking bag.
2 Tbsp. olive oil.
Method:
-  Cut a 2 kg pumpkin in half lengthwise keep the skin on.
-  Clean the inside keeping the seeds.
-  Slice the pumpkin across into ½ inch slices.
-  Coat the pumpkin slices skin on and the seeds with nutmeg / cinnamon / coriander powders and turmeric using your hands for the mixture to go everywhere.

-  Wear kitchen gloves or else your hands will turn yellow due to the turmeric.
-  Place in oven dish.
-  Separately coat chicken with fresh rosemary and thyme.
-  Fill oven bag with the vegetables and fruit.
-  Place chicken in the bag as well.
-  Close bag with supplied strap.
-  Cut a hole the size of a 20 Euro cent in the top of the bag for cooking vapors to escape.
-  Place bag in the baking dish covering the pumpkin.

-  Roast in oven for 1½ hours or less depending on strength of oven, at 180 degrees C.
Serve chicken with the roasted pumpkin, seeds, vegetables and fruit on the side.
Bon Appétit,
Stelio

  1. Delicious! amazing combination of flavours. The baked softened orange ciderous taste was matching with the light sweetness of plums and prunes. The baked pumking with its spices completed the whole dish. The chicken juicy and tender was the finale!!!
