I work a long day and come home tired. I can roast a whole chicken quickly by cutting that little baby in half. Cuts roasting time and produces a very nice product. See this link for instructions.
On another note, I've been making these Potato Patties inspired by Melissa D'Arabian's Crispy Potato Cake. I've changed it only slightly, so the credit is all hers.
I flip it over by laying a plate over top and turning both plate and skillet over. Actually husband helps with this procedure. The the patty gets slipped back into the pan brown side up and back onto medium heat until brown on both sides.
Now into the warming drawer with you both while I make the vegetable.
I made a little gravy with the liquid off the chicken while I was waiting.
