Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.

500 gm rice, basmati
1 onion
5 tablespoon butter or oil
1 large chicken, roasting jointed
1 salt & black pepper
1 tablespoon raisins or more

Sprinkle with cinnamon, cover with water and simmer gently, covered, until the chicken is very tender and the sauce reduce. Bone the chicken if you like. Wash and boil the rice according to the recipe for chilau but do not steam it. Put 2 tb melted butter or oil at the bottom of a large heavy saucepan. Spread half of the partly cooked rice over this, cover with the chickem pieces, pour the rich fruity sauce over them and cover with the remaining rice.
