    Nice, nice - pretty dish! I can almost smell it from here. How was it?
    Everyone makes mistakes. The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking.

        I really really shouldn't check out the forum when I'm hungry.

          Pretty, superb, fantastic....

          looks good enough to eat

          I like the method of cooking the meat over the potatoes/vegetables,

            Ok these are all eyeball measures for the brine.
            I put the hens in a half gallon container and almost covered them with water (probably 3-4 inches I was trying to leave some room for the next ingredients)
            added 2/3 cup of sugar
            1/2 cup of salt
            2 tablespoons of dark molasses
            3 tablespoons fish sauce
            2 tablespoons soy sauce
            The juice and the left overs of 3 limes
            4-5 large cloves of garlic mashed
            a generous grinding of pepper

            I the added enough water just to cover.
            put them in the fridge for 24 hrs

            I then drained them and patted them dry stuffed half a lime and 3 cloves of garlic in each.

            The potatoes are small red potatoes salt pepper onions quartered garlic chopped, some roasted bell pepper. I added a little stock from the necks to the dish and baked at 400 deg for about 80 minutes.
