A homemade balsamic bbq sauce is used to glaze chicken as it’s grilling. The result is tender chicken with a slightly sweet, and tangy taste. Summer is one of my favorite seasons for one simple reason: grilling. We finally invested in a Big Green Egg last year and it completely changed the way I think about grilling.
I was ridiculously excited when I came across this recipe for homemade sweet and sour chicken. You guys, it is SO GOOD. It’s a little involved with several steps (coating chicken, frying a little bit, then baking) but it is all worth it. Trust me.
“This is probably my favorite way to eat chicken.” That’s a quote from my husband the last time I made this dish for dinner. Marinate some chicken breasts in honey, mustard, and lemon, then top with bacon, mushrooms and cheese… How could that go wrong? I love to serve this dish with a side of oven fries and a crisp lettuce salad. It’s a meal full of flavor!
Ingredients 4 split chicken breasts, skin on Kosher salt freshly ground black pepper 1 lemon sliced in wedges, 6-8 slices 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 9 cloves minced garlic- about 3 Tbs 1/3 cup dry white wine 1 Tbs grated lemon zest (2 lemons) 2 Tbs freshly squeezed lemon juice 1½ tsp dried oregano 1 tsp minced fresh thyme leaves, plus 4 sprigs Instructions
March 10, 2011 | Print | E-mail | Filed under cheese , chicken , Mexican , rice Sometimes hubby and I get stuck in a food rut, and for a couple weeks we end up eating the same few things for dinner over and over again. It usually happens because I’m too busy to sit down and plan out a menu for the next few weeks, but it also happens if I’m just not in the mood for anything in particular and so nothing sounds good. Fortunately I happened upon this recipe from Jessica of How Sweet It Is , and it was just what I needed to break me out of the rut.
This slow cooker salsa chicken and rice (or as pictured, with added corn niblets) is a super easy, delicious, and healthy addition to your weekly menu plan. Serve alone, with tortilla chips, or as a wrap/burrito, and it’s a perfect kid-friendly meal! Slow Cooked Salsa Chicken and Rice Author: Mandi
Yesterday as I stood in the kitchen trying to figure out what to make for dinner I wondered to myself, how do those people do it on those shows where they are given random ingredients and are suppose come up with something genius. I think I stood there for a solid 20 minutes looking in the cupboards and staring into the freezer hoping that I would be struck by some ingenious idea. Then I saw the oranges and it hit me “O-raang Shh-ikun”….that is orange chicken if you can’t understand the accent.
