The electric frypan of love

  • take 4 chicken thighs, skinless (boneless is a bonus, but not strictly necessary)
  • soak liberally in sweet chilli sauce
  • dip generously in a mixture of wholemeal breadcrumbs, lemon pepper, garlic salt, paprika for colour, and a dash of cayenne pepper (proportions: lots of breadcrumbs, a generous amount of lemon pepper, garlic salt to taste, a modicum of paprika, and just a little bit of cayenne because it kicks like a gorrdam mule)
  • cook slowly on well-oiled (covered) electric frypan for approx 45min-1hr, turning occasionally. If so inclined, turn up the heat at the end and crisp it up
  • if you have any leftover sweet chilli sauce and breadcrumb mixture, chuck them together and fry them in the pan with the chicken, for an extra sweet and crispy "gravy".
Addendum: instead of frying the leftover sauce/breadcrumbs, a recent innovation is chopping up half an onion and frying those in with the leftovers. If you really wanted to get crazy you could thinly dice some potato and add that too, but I can't be held responsible for the consequences ...

I would like it known that I have never seen this man before in my life, and any photographic evidence to the contrary is a damned lie. It is clearly a much taller man shown in those, er, art prints.

... you may very well think that, but I couldn't possibly comment.

oh, and Jack, if you want the rest of those "art-prints" you will need to place 5 crisp Andrew Jacksons in a plain brown envelope and leave it under Bessie's saddle. You remember Bessie, don't you?

"you know it's always the third post that is the killer"

Speaking on behalf of The Internet (a client to whom I provide representation on a number of matters), if this becomes one of those Ozymandian momuments to blogger hubris that consists of two posts within hours of each other, followed by one post a few weeks later apologising for the lack of posting, followed by one more post a month thereafter saying "I'm really going to make much more of an effort to post from today onwards", and then the blog is left abandoned, then my client, for one, will be very annoyed.

Oh bugger. I always forget the raised eyebrow. I got a C- for it at Evil Villiany School. I had to make it up with an A in "Advanced Maniacal Laughter" and a B+ in "Inventive and Improbable ways of Killing your Arch Enemy whilst having enough time to reveal your evil masterplan 101".
