CHEAT'S CHICKEN

It is very rare for me to cheat at cooking but I must say that I'm impressed with Buitoni's saccoccio idea for chicken.  You just put a 1 kg chicken or six drumsticks in the bag with potatoes, if using, then add the flavouring from the pack.  Close the bag up, tie it - both bag and tie are in the pack -  and bung it in the oven for 50 minutes.



I can't make up my mind whether I like the herb or spicy flavour better!



How many of those of you who are in Italy have tried these?

I've never tried it, but Buitoni is also commercialized in my land so I'll look for it!

Hi Pat .. we have those over here too.. they are brilliant. We don't have that brand though !!

I'll certainly try to find it in the Italian section of Gourmet Stores. It looks delicious. I'll let you know if I find it. Thanks!

Ah no shame in the odd short cut Welshcakes!

O wow! Is Buitoni actually Italian? I remember scrutinizing one of those very Italian-sounding ragu brands and noticing in tiny letters that the stuff was actually made in Poland!!

It looks yummy! Easy and Quick doesnt make it any less filling

Oh, I've seen the adverts for those, and being a very lazy cook I want to try them!!

I'll be interested to know if you find it, Josep. Hi, Anne. Yes, I didn't think the Buitoni one had got to the UK yet - I did research availability in various countries. In the UK Buitoni products are didtributed by Nestlé, btw. Hi, Claude. Oh, yes, do let me know! Glad you agree, jams. Hi, Gleds. Yes, definitely Italian. Hi, GCC. I agree. Hi, Nerys. Do try them and let me know what you think. Thanks, Cherie. I'm sure you cheat very well at cooking, James!

Never tried it but I got nothing against shortcuts in the kitchen. What if you mixed half herb/half spicy? I bet the results would be twice as delicious!
