I have been meaning to try Curry for a long time. A "proper" curry, I say proper in quotation marks, because I am sure that some legitimate, professional, curry chef is rolling their eyes and shaking their head at me right now... But anyway. A friend of mine was always making curry and suggested I try it. I finally got around to it. So rich and creamy, slightly spicy and marvellously tasty. I ended up making Grilled Duck Breast Curry 3 nights in a row, and having the leftovers for lunch at work every day.
After the most amazing success of the Honey Buttered Chicken Thighs (Exclusive Recipe Club recipe), I wanted to recapture the feeling and deliciousness in a meal for myself at home too. So, I threw a bunch of yummy sounding ingredients in a dish and marinated the chicken. What we ended up with was a sweet and tangy chicken dinner, chock full of veggies and chicken that had this lovely, partially caramelized, exterior.
Seeking something different the other night, I found myself looking for a way to use the lime I had and some chicken thighs that I pulled out of the freezer. Planked Spicy Lime Chicken just kind of happened and it turned out to be very delicious. Smoky paprika and chili powder combine with the smoke from the cedar plank to create a sweet taste that is balanced out by the juicy lime sauce.
Moist turkeys are the bane of many's existence. Really, they can't cook a turkey to save their souls, not even a butterball! That's where I come in. Butter Injected Rotisserie Turkey is super easy, very tasty and just plain awesome. Prep time is nearly non-existent, and it should only take about 20 minutes per pound. Try it this Thanksgiving. You already have the stuff to make it in your pantry.
I haven't stuffed a pepper in a while, and I was feeling particularly lazy in the veggie department that day. SO for lunch, instead of making a stir fry, I made a Butter Chicken Stuffed Pepper. Sweet and crunchy-ish pepper filled with, I have to say, one of the most delicious ways to serve chicken on the planet, and grilled to scrumptious perfection. Serve this on its own or on a bed of rice for a slightly fancy take on Butter Chicken.
Talking food one day, someone mentioned to me that they had a craving for Butter Chicken, an Indian dish that I had never tried. Instantly curious, I searched the web for a simple version of the recipe. None of them mentioned grilling, but all wanted it to be baked in a covered dish. I have to be different so instantly I was thinking of ways to make this delicious recipe on the grill. I came up with this and it was very delicious.
I was worried about finding all of the spices and the cheesecloth. No need to fret at all. If you go to a larger grocery store, one that has a fresh market and deli, you should be able to find the cheesecloth with the tea-towels. As for the spices, I found the ones I needed almost all side by side! As long as you have access to a store with a bulk section or a bulk dry goods store, you should be fine. The curry paste was in the International/Asian section. If you can’t find paste, you can substitute curry powder, and make it into a paste with water.
Happy National Peanut Day everyone. Well actually it's September 13th... BUT I had to celebrate and share with you! Instead of doing something Thai with a peanut sauce, or a delightful dessert, I opted to do something slightly unexpected. I made a peanut butter laced barbecue sauce. Was it ever delicious! Creamy. Slightly spicy, and definitely a little sweet. You gotta try this on your next meal with chicken.
Here's my first recipe on the new site. I am super excited about posting the recipe for Chicken Shawarma On The Rotisserie.
I have wanted to do Shawarma for a very long time. I finally had the opportunity and immediately did some research. Naturally I did not have the use of the traditional vertical grill that the street vendors use, but I did have a rotisserie. Loading up that spit rod with loads of marinated meat was just super fun, and messy. After rotissing the chicken (our protein of choice) and grilling up fresh pita to go with it, the meal turned into something purely amazing.
