I find that chicken is not ideal for defrosting in the microwave. I have had the wings and the ends of the legs cooked while defrosting more than once. Cooked that way, the meat is an unappetizing beige/grey colour.

Sounds good! I'm pretty sure I've had that, maybe even cooked it myself. (During my month of Thai madness cooking Thai food every day for a whole month.

Sounds tasty to me Katie

Sorry to hear your arthritis is playing up, not good!

Very nice pic!!! :) That's a lot considering it's 11 p.m. here and I can barely keep my eyes open.

Ditto. Been there done that got the T-shirt, and I used the T-shirt for cleaning out my house.

I probably have posted my replies into one big multi-poast.... But anyway it's getting vey tired outside and I had better get going with my food shot or tomorrow will be too late. (Currently "tomorrow" is barely more than 12-15 hours...

Ooh, looks good. Interesting effect with the white plate. I was wondering which plate you used and then had to look again, 'cause the plate melts into the white background.
