Aluminium foil is great for making life easier when you are cooking.
When you roast a joint of meat, if you don’t need the juices, line the roasting tin with foil for easy cleaning afterwards .
When you cook chicken pieces, especially ones that have been marinated, again line the baking sheet with foil for easy cleaning.
Turn the edges up slightly to stop liquid dripping off. Be careful when removing meat from the foil as you want to try not to rip it as this will spill the juices on the tray.
Line your grill pan with foil, under the rack. This will catch all the fat and juices for easy disposal.
Finally, line the base of your oven with foil, and it will catch all the drips. Simply replace it from time to time. Much easier than cleaning the oven – a particularly hated task of mine!
Do you have any other uses of foil that make life easier?
