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 Soy Stir Fried Chicken: Can I order an easier life? For all those who have it harder than I do.... I've been feeling a bit sorry for myself these days, with all the suffering I've been doing at the hands of Son's unsuccessful potty training venture, Daughter #1's start of school, and Daughter #2's temper tantrums over swim lessons, and all in all just being tried day after day. First grade homework stresses me out like you wouldn't believe, which sounds slightly ridiculous I know, but the act of trying to get through homework without pulling out all of my hair is a feat only managed by the best of women I'm sure. I am not one of them. Add on top of that the driving that suddenly has tripled in my routine. Which leaves me tired. But this recipe - it's my answer to a day that was too too crazy. And when I saw them eating their meal with relish, giggling and laughing at the table as we talked about the day, I thought, well - it's a hard life, but it's one worth having. Serve topped with cilantro or spring onions as garnish.

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.

Dubstep Towards the end of the 2000s and into the early 2010s, the genre started to become more commercially successful in the UK, with more singles and remixes entering the music charts. Music journalists and critics also noticed a dubstep influence in several pop artists' work. Around this time, producers also began to fuse elements of the original dubstep sound with other influences, creating fusion genres including future garage, the slower and more experimental post-dubstep, and the harsher electro house and heavy metal influenced brostep, the latter of which greatly contributed to dubstep's rising mainstream popularity in the United States.[9] Characteristics Musical score of the above recording. The music website Allmusic has described Dubstep's overall sound as "tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals Rhythm Dubstep rhythms are usually syncopated, and often shuffled or incorporating tuplets.

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!

Chicken Teriyaki Recipe | Japanese Recipes Chicken Teriyaki (鳥照り焼き) is a lunchtime staple in Japan, filling bento boxes being carted off to offices and schools alike. Teri refers to the lacquered sheen that teriyaki sauce develops on the surface of the chicken, while yaki means grilled. Almost any cut of chicken can be used, but chicken teriyaki is most commonly prepared with the leg meat (thighs or drumsticks) which is filleted to ensure it cooks evenly. The skin is left on the chicken to keep the meat moist and it takes on a wonderful caramelized hue while getting slightly crispy as it grills. Long before sushi became the ambassador of Japanese cuisine to the rest of the world, chicken teriyaki invaded the west, and for better or worse it came to represent the whole of the Japanese culinary repertoire. So what makes for an authentic teriyaki sauce? It’s simple… equal parts soy sauce, mirin, sake, and sugar. Traditionally, the unseasoned chicken is grilled over coals then basted with teriyaki sauce. Equipment you'll need:

Football & Fried Chicken - The Garden of Eden - The Garden of Eden I am a New England Patriots fan. There, I said it. Yes, I grew up in Colorado and yes, we live in Denver now. However, I truly became a football fan when I met Rob and that was in Boston... and the Patriots won three Super Bowl Championships while I lived in Boston! And to be fair, Denver lost three Super Bowls while I lived in Colorado. The cards were stacked against the Broncos years ago. Anyway. Only in the past year have I become comfortable with the idea of occasionally frying food.

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!
