Baking Bad – Sexy Chicken Roast



Get one nice whole succulent chicken, preferably one that reminds you of that girl/guy you remember from high school.

Make a few slits on the thighs and fleshy parts (Ok, focus, you dirty mind…)


Mix juice of one lemon, lots of pepper and generous amount of salt. Add half spoon cumin powder and crushed ginger (or ginger paste) 

Now put the chicken in a zip lock bag and pour the seasoning into the bag. Add some olive oil to this. Seal the bag and massage the seasoning into the chicken like that time you spent in Thailand. Leave this for at least one full day in the chiller. Or freeze it for a few days and thaw on the day you want to cook. 

Lots of patience, just like that girl/guy from school. 

Then when you’re ready to cook, take the chicken out of the chiller and bring it to room temperature. 

Stuff a whole garlic into the chicken. Yeah there only where you’re thinking… 

Pre heat oven to 350 °F 

Line a baking tray with foil and brush some olive oil. 

Heap some carrots, celery & brussel sprouts or any other veggies. You can skip veggies altogether like a true Neanderthal. Place the chicken and drizzle the seasoning from the bag. Sprinkle some olive oil. Make a tent with foil over the chicken and roast for 1 hr. Then remove the tent and roast for 15 mins until the outer layer is browned. 

Turn off the oven and let it sit for 5 minutes. 

Remove, carve and serve. Your chances of getting laid have just shot up, if you did this right. Thank me later.

The God Character

We humans have always had this indomitable quest to make sense of the world as we experience it. And we explained it all away within the limits of our understanding of nature at the time. Our fear made us appeal to forces of nature that, at the time, must have been quite terrifying to live […]

The Lords of the Strings

It’s been a while since I’ve seen such authentic, passionate musicians exuding such exuberant, unjarable jam. You can tell by how I’m fumbling to find the right words. Virtuosity and technical skills aside, what we saw on stage was pure, unadulterated fun. Every musician on stage was obviously thoroughly enjoying himself and all that energy radiated right across the […]

Stop with the mic-drop already

As a one-time-part-time sound engineer, here’s my appeal to all the heads of state and celebrities who think a ‘mic-drop’ proves you’re cool. Well, like all things ‘cool,’ it used to be cool until everyone started doing it. It’s not cool anymore. What’s more, it actually damages the sensitive diaphragms in the mic heads. The […]
