This recipe says it all. You need no more than a few minutes to load up a couple of freezer bags with ribs and chicken, oils and unguents and then, after a day or so's untroublesome marinating in the fridge, you tip out the contents into a roasting tray and slot it in the oven. Your input is minimal, but what you get out is a big feast that feels homey and welcoming and makes everyone happy, you included.
This is ideal to prepare in advance of the Christmas rush. For other easy recipes for Christmas time try these simple alternatives to the Christmas turkey.
