Save Corn Cobs To Roast Juicier Chicken

Save Corn Cobs to Roast Juicier Chicken

You've just had some delicious corn on the cob, but wait! Before you toss those cobs away, put them to use improving your roasted chicken.

The Ideas in Food blog highlights this clever use of cobs headed for the compost bin:

We arranged the thighs on the cobs and roasted them. When they were cooked we pulled the pan from the oven and let them rest on the cobs. The moisture from the liquids steamed the underside of the thighs. The skins browned and crisped. When we were ready to eat we had corn scented roasted thighs for dinner and a rich aromatic corn and chicken broth for tomorrow.

It's the little things.

Chicken on the Cob [Ideas in Food]


    Yum Yum! Crispy skin chook ........ All coated in friends and family saliva from used corn cobs. I wonder if we can find a way to also make use of corn hole waste?

    You do realise that the temperature at which this is cooked kills the saliva etc as it does salmonella that is usually associated with raw chicken

      You do realize you can cut the corn of the cob
