Spicy Honey Chicken

Spicy Honey Chicken
This is one of my family’s favorite meals. Both kids and adults gobble it up every time I make it. I love the combo of a savory spice rub combined with a sweet honey glaze. It’s pretty quick and easy too. You don’t have to think ahead about marinating because you’re just throwing together a spice rub. In addition to cider vinegar and honey, you’ll need an assortment of spices: garlic, chipotle chili powder, chili powder (oops, forgot that one in the pic!)

Marinated Grilled Chicken with Cucumber-Watermelon Salsa Marinated Grilled Chicken with Cucumber-Watermelon Salsa uses an easy chicken and steak marinade that you’ll use all summer long. Serve with efreshing Cucumber-Watermelon Salsa on top! Ben’s and my weekly dinner menus are ridiculously predictable, featuring Chipotle burrito bowls a minimum of one night a week (what DO they put in that guac to make it taste so good?!) and what we fondly refer to as “boring chicken” another one, or let’s be real, two nights a week. Why is it called “boring chicken”? As boring as it sounds though, both Ben and I love it. That being said, spring and summer are always great times to get risque with boring old chicken by marinating it and throwing it on the grill. This marinade is made completely from ingredients I can almost 100% guarantee you already have in your cupboards – a little soy sauce, oil, honey, red chili pepper flakes, garlic, salt, and pepper combine to make a super juicy grilled chicken that has all the right flavors.

Honey Glazed Chicken and Bacon Bites I had an idea. Actually, it was more like my three hundred and forty-sixth idea for this month and I now have the hips to show for it. No biggie, I consider it a small sacrifice for eating food that tastes this good. So I asked myself: “Would it be a really crazy idea to wrap loads of bacon around chicken strips and brush them with a spruced up honey marinade?”. See, now that’s what happens when you blog from your desolated home or kitchen (in the burbs). Anyway, it turned out nothing short of a phenomenal idea that I simply have to share here in my little corner of the www. Ingredients: 1 pound boneless chicken breasts 20 thin bacon slices 3 tbsp honey 2 tsp coarse mustard fresh lemon juice Optional: salt Directions: Cut the chicken breasts—or fillets, as we call them here—in thin strips. Note: I’m using the Dutch equivalent to bacon in this recipe. Grab a bowl and combine 3 tbsp honey with 2 tsp coarse mustard. Squeeze in some lemon juice. Bacon rights all the wrongs in this world.

Grilled Beef Teriyaki Skewers Recipe :: The Meatwave Thu May 24, 2012 It's Memorial Day, and that means you're grilling! There's no question about that, but are you set to be the master grill host? Last year I gave a rundown of some helpful tips I've picked up over the years on throwing a killer backyard barbecue, and of those, one of the most important is being prepared with food when people arrive. The awkwardness of friends showing up hungry and having to wait for you to heat the grill and then actually cook can be painful, so it's best to have that sucker fired up with some items that can be grilled in hurry to start feeding those growling stomaches. Thinly cut flank steak skewers are a favorite of mine to accomplish this task, and this beef teriyaki version is a surefire crowd pleaser. I grabbed this recipe from recipe developer extraordinaire Kenji at Serious Eats, who starts off with making the teriyaki sauce with a few twists. Then comes the steak of choice for skewers like these—flank. Happy grilling to all this Memorial Day!

Better Than Takeout Orange Chicken 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. I love orange chicken, and I almost always order # 14 Orange Chicken when we order Chinese take out and I wondered to myself if I could make it better at home. This recipe most definitely delivered! Ha ha Chinese food…delivered….get it? The sauce is sweet, tangy, there is no lack in orange flavor, and the red pepper flakes give it just a touch of heat. Combine corn starch, salt, and pepper. As you finish each batch, drain cooked chicken in a paper towel lined plate. Ingredients Chicken Orange Sauce

Pulled Pork Tacos Pulled pork and tacos are definitely two bro meals. I've made bbq tacos in the past, but I wanted to make a simplified recipe that any bro could master! When I made this meal, all of my roommates asked me one by one how to make the pulled pork and were shocked by how easy it was. The best thing about this recipe is it makes a large amount and it's perfect for your next bro-down watching the game this Sunday. I generally prefer a roasted pulled pork(if you don't have a smoker), but I understand that it isn't practical for most people, and especially on a weeknight. Its pretty easy to shred at this point. All the fixins. These tacos were pretty fantastic. We had some soft corn shells, some crunchy, and some soft flour. Buy a pork shoulder. When you get home from work, pull the pork out of the liquid and shred it up, discarding the bones, skin, and fat. As for the rest of the toppings, you could either make or buy them, but they are all pretty easy.

Baked Chicken & Roasted Red Pepper Taquitos I don’t know if I ever mentioned that my most recent job was at Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage (don’t ask me why they decided to make their name so much longer and more annoying to say). After working at restaurants for so long, this job was so slow some days that I would read the cooking magazines at the register and write down recipe ideas; my boss probably wouldn’t have been too stoked, but what can you do!? I am getting off topic though, being a cashier is pretty cool as a foodie for one reason- seeing what everybody is buying and spending all day thinking what you want to make for dinner that night. I went home that night on a mission to make my own, healthier, taquitos. Baked Chicken and Roasted Red Pepper Taquitos Yields 12 Taquitos Directions: Preheat the oven to 425F.

Spicy Pulled Chicken By Lauren Zembron, on December 15th, 2010 Do you like spicy food? I’m talking lip-tingling, sinus-clearing, runny nose-inducing spicy fare. Like this pulled chicken. Thanks to the trifecta of a whole jalapeno pepper, chipotle chile powder, and cayenne pepper, this Spicy Pulled Chicken definitely lives up to its name. I made this spicy pulled chicken on a cold, rainy afternoon, (where’s the snow, Boston?!) Plans for leftovers include pulled chicken quesadillas with an avocado & Greek yogurt sauce for dipping. Spicy Pulled Chicken serves 4-6 Ingredients: Directions: Heat a drizzle of oil in a large dutch oven (or other heavy-bottomed pot) over medium heat. *I like to make the pulled chicken early in the afternoon, let it sit at room temperature (off of the heat) for a few hours, and then warm it through right before serving.
