Unusual chicken recipes

Well, maybe two chicken recipes that somehow came to mind after ~M mentioned beer can chicken in a recent post.

Parachute Can Chicken

Ingredients:

  • One (1) freshly killed, roughly-plucked chicken
  • One Parachute Can, or metal cylindrical container of roughly 5-10 gallon internal capacity
  • One (1) stick
  • One (1) gallon of gasoline
  • Sufficient tinder/dry vegetation/flammable materials to form a large pile around and on top of parachute can.

This was related to me by my Scoutmaster, who was then an active-duty Marine and fresh off of a tour in Force Recon.

Snatch a chicken (preferably the noisiest bird) from nearby village, behead, drain, gut and pull off as many feathers as possible while distancing self from villagers. Drive stick into ground and suspend chicken on stick. Place can/container over chicken/stick arrangement. Pile tinder/dry vegetation/flammable material over can, soak in gasoline and light.

Chicken should flash-cook as fire superheats air in can. As soon as fire burns out, knock over can, grab chicken and eat on the run. Meat should be hot yet pink (alright, bloody red) at bone. Feeds one fire team.

 

Stove-off chicken breast

  • One boneless chicken breast
  • One packet of crab/lobster boil, or two tablespoons of favorite spice blend

Bring medium size saucepan of water to rolling boil. Add packet or spices and chicken breast, cover tightly, and turn off heat. Let set 5-8 minutes then remove. Goes with just about anything you want.

 

You probably won’t find these at Chick-Fil-A, although I’ve been at one or two KFC’s where people hinted at recipe 1 being standard procedure.

Another week, another 20-cent hike in gas prices . . .

Soon we’ll know what it’s like to buy petrol in Great Britain and the Netherlands, oh joy!

Anyway, it’s been another fun week, and hopefully I’ll have something strange and visually enchanting or otherwise interesting to post this evening.

I’ve also been conducting a brief conversation with one of the folks who are morbidly fascinated with this blog about the need for duct-tape in a post-modernist nuclear world.

Suffice it to say to any young men out there: if you visit your girlfriend’s home and her mom and dad have spread out a sheet of garden plastic and a roll of duct tape, it might be a good time to break off the relationship.
