First things first: Give your bird a bath. Wash her gingerly in a pan in a sink and then discard the pan. Wash everything after you have finished so that there is no salmonella lurking about. Take out the gizzards!!! I personally boil the liver for my little chihuahua. Liver is so good for dogs, especially boiled with no seasonings.
OK, where was I?
- Rub that bird down with generous amounts of salt, pepper, garlic powder, (chili powder optional) and let her sit so she is lukewarm.
- Get a tumbler out of your liquor cabinet. Don't get excited - it's for your special ingredients.
- Poor a quarter of olive oil and a quarter of broth into the glass.
- Chop 5 cloves of garlic.
- Chop a bunch of parsley
- Add it into the glass
- Squeeze half a lemon into the mix
- Add more seasonings, salt, pepper, garlic powder
- Mix it up
- Pour it onto your bird and then rub that bitch down again, getting every crevice, nook and cranny
- Then, chop up two onions into chunks. Put it around the bird.
- Pour a half a bottle of beer in the pan
- Cut pieces of real butter, one chunk on the top of the bird and the other chunks into the pan
So now for your carbs.
I have a slicer I bought that cuts up potatoes into fries perfectly. Slice them all up (I did about 4 potatoes) in case of guests or leftovers or even for breakfast with my eggs. Throw them into the pan with the oil and fry em' up! Don't burn them because they'll become bitter. This dish is usually paired up with any wine (or martini) - whether chardonnay or a nice deep cabernet or a dry Grey Goose martini with three olives. Season to your liking and bon appetit!
