Man-Pleasing Chicken

Man-Pleasing Chicken
I have never gotten so many compliments before, let alone for a piece of chicken. David suggested calling this chicken, “So Good it Can’t Be Described, Explosion on Your Taste Buds Chicken.” Exactly. I have never encountered a dish that is so basic and simple to put together yet creates such a big pay off. This chicken, quite simply, is one of the most savory things I’ve ever eaten. If you are the busiest person on the planet and don’t have much cooking experience, but you have to prepare a meal to woo the love of your life, cook this chicken! To make this chicken, which you should absolutely do immediately, preheat your oven to 450º F. Put 1.5 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken thighs into a foil-lined or disposable oven-proof, 8×8 inch baking dish. Put the chicken thighs into the oven, and let them bake for 40 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 165ºF. I adapted this recipe from “The I <3 Trader Joe’s Cookbook” by Cherie Mercer Twohy.

Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic We all have favorite food smells that trigger memories. Some are good, some are bad... and some are just ones we've grown accustomed to as the norm. One of my favorite smells in the whole world is of onions and garlic sauteing in oil. This is how my mom started about 95% of the savory ethnic dishes she made. I knew the minute I heard the sizzle of the wok when the onions and garlic hit the oil, it was only a matter of time before we would be sitting down around the table to eat. As I got older, I had the task of preparing the onions and garlic for the day's meals.

I don’t know about you guys but I tend to skimp on dinner. “Skimping” meaning I stick to Special K-type cereal dinners. I just get so exhausted when I come home from work, I can barely lift the cereal box out of the cabinet and pour it into a bowl. Routine - 5 second rule We all fall prey to routine. Maybe it's due to comfort, or laziness, or lack of inspiration. We eat the same cereal for breakfast, walk the same route to work, buy the same crackers we've bought for years. And there's nothing inherently wrong with this, I suppose.

Recipe for Honey Mustard Chicken Tenders at Life Honey mustard is always a must with chicken tenders in our house. For that reason, it is shocking to me that I never thought to combine the two before cooking. That’s right, these crispy lovelies are marinated in honey mustard dressing for a couple of hours so that the tender chicken soaks up all the sweet tangy flavor of the dressing. Then, like my sriracha chicken nuggets, these little devils are coated in panko bread crumbs so that they crisp up very nicely in your oven, not your fryer. I started making my own honey mustard dressing a little while ago. It is so simple and you probably have all of the ingredients on hand right now.
