To be honest I can’t really see anything Polynesian in this recipe, but I think the marinade does sound tasty. You get much the same result if you use a casserole dish instead of the oven bag, but the good thing is you don’t have to wash it afterwards.
When I was growing up the best part of the Sun newspaper was the Corinella children’s page. Each week the paper would publish jokes, drawings and recipes sent in by children and they would be awarded certificates of merit. This Fried Rice recipe earned it’s sender a Blue Certificate. It’s not the way I make Fried Rice, it has a much higher egg to rice ratio than my version, but it looks good and certainly worthy of a Blue Certificate.
The recipe suggests using these chicken drumsticks hot or cold for picnics, but I think you could also make the recipe using chicken wings or chicken tenders and serve them up as party finger food. The cornflake coating would give them a lovely crunch.
Another recipe from the Tiger Oven Bag collection. The marinade sounds tasty and except for crushing the garlic not much work. Like most of the oven bag recipes I don’t think the bag is essential, cooking it in a little oil in a dish would work just as well.
It might put you off that this old recipe because it starts off “Place the barley in a large bowl. Cover with water; soak overnight”. But if you be bothered doing it the barley will make the soup delicious and when you add in the lamb and vegetables you’ll end up with a very hearty and warming winter dish.
