I can't find the thread that someone was asking about what to do with boilers but I finally got around to asking mum for her recipe and was bowled over with how easy it is!!

Here goes...

1 boiler, chopped in to stewing pieces
about 2 tblsps of tumeric (or about 2 largish - 2 inch- pieces) **be careful with tumeric.. it stains everything yellow. Eat this off ceramic plates and metal cutlery as it will make all plastics yellow!!
1 large onion
oyster sauce
light soy sauce

24 hours before cooking.. or day before
Using a blender, blend the tumeric and onion until both are finely blended. Mix it in with chicken. Add oyster sauce and light soy... add enough to mix in with all the chicken. Don't worry if it's not enough as you can always add more when cooking it. Better that you can add later than have it too salty!!

Pour everything into a pot. Do not add any oil as there is enough oil in the meat and skin. Turn on the fire on maximum and when it heats up, stir the mix. Turn the fire down to a simmer and leave on the stove for 1 hr, stirring frequently. Taste the stew about 15 minutes before the end and add more soy/oyster sauce as needed.

Sounds really nice,
Here's another one.

Kaza's Tarragon Chicken

Home killed chicken of course,
Simmer gently for as long as it takes to cook through according to size.
Add salt to the water and simmer another 5 minutes.

1 tblespn of butter
1 cup of cream
1 tspn salt
cracked black and white pepper to taste ( can't be raciest )
1 small sprig of fresh tarragon
into an stovetop and ovenproof dish, bring to boil on stovetop, add boiled chicken broken in peices,
stir through cream mixture,
Bake in mod oven turning often till cream has turned into a sauce.
Serve with what you please.

PS, the chicken stock is a good base for soup.
Pasta shells or rice, tinned beans eg, butter beans, and a few green olives in chicken and fresh vegie soup works well.

The majestic Campine.
Should be classed as a game bird.
