Another day, I received herb salt for souvenir from France.
So I wanted to make use of it and made grilled chicken for dinner.
It’s very easy just marinate the chicken and grill it in the oven!
You can use any kinds of chicken. This time I used chicken leg.
Firstly, you can wash the chicken (just in case) and take away the water with kitchen paper.
Then seasons chicken with salt and pepper.
After seasoning with salt and pepper, put in marinade sauce made with herb salt (or herb mix), lemon juice and minced garlic.
You can marinate in a plastic bag or in a bowl for over 3 hours.
After 3 hours, you can just grill in 190～200℃ oven for about 20 minutes.
You can grill some vegetable together as well.
This time I grilled Asparagus together.
It’s very easy but taste like you eat in a restaurant.
You can pair with light white wine and enjoy it.
Do you like to eat apple pie?
Actually you can make at home very easily with pre-made pie crust!
This time I used half of the pie crust for the bottom and half of the pie crust for decoration on the top.
For filling, you can simmer sliced apple with sugar.
If you like you can add a little butter and cinnamon to add flavour (optional).
I put a little bit of honey to reduce amount of sugar.
After simmering apple, you can spread half of pie crust to heat-resistant dish.
Then put filling and decorate on the top with pie crust which cut in slices.
This time, I placed pie crust slices in mesh pattern in the middle and wavy around the dish.
You can put beaten egg york on the top to make it shiny and looks better as well.
After finish bake in 180℃ oven for about 20 minutes.
It’s great to eat hot apple pie with vanilla ice cream for dessert in autumn.
My family loves it very much.
You can try to make it if you find nice apple in the market.
Seems that hard American apple is more suitable for making apple pie than soft apple like Fuji.
For wine paring, you can pair with wine like apple cider or sweet sparkling wine like Asti Spumante.
