Home Baked Challenge - Boggis's Chicken

We are having such fun, dreaming up dishes to take part in Hannah's Home Baked Challenge ( click on button in sidebar )
This month's theme is Fictional Food - food inspired by books.
Great ideas and laughs round the dining table, revealed a wealth of recipes to try ranging from Enid Blyton Famous Five picnic goodies to Twilight morsels.

Our first tasty treat is inspired by Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr Fox, Boggis's Chicken.

" Boggis was a chicken farmer.He kept thousands of chickens.He was enormously fat.This was because he ate three boiled chickens smothered with dumplings ever day for breakfast, lunch and supper "



Ok, so we didn't have this for breakfast or lunch but for supper ( or tea as we call it ) and it wasn't three chickens, only one but we did boil it and it was smothered in tasty dumplings.

We had a great time, reading from the book, eating our tea and singing the song

Boggis and Bunce and Bean
One fat, one short, one lean.
These horrible crooks
So different in looks
Were none the less equally mean.
