Grilled chicken bruschetta

Chicken Bruschetta

Grilled chicken bruschetta was born from having too many tomatoes in our pantry and no bread in sight.  I was also looking for a low carb meal, so I decided to grill chicken cutlets and use them as the toasted bread in my bruschetta recipe.  The results were awesome!  The chicken was a perfect vessel … Read moreGrilled chicken bruschetta

Smoked Honey Garlic Chicken and Thermoworks Smoke Review

Smoked Honey Garlic Chicken

Our good friends over at Thermoworks have released a new wireless thermometer called “Smoke“.  The Smoke is a wireless thermometer that includes two probes.  That way, you can wirelessly monitor both the pit and the food.  As a barbecuer, this is important.  The proper temperature is the difference between delicious bbq and charcoal.  Plus, since this is all done wirelessly, you can do it while watching your favorite game or snoozing on the couch. We tested this thermometer while making a nice Honey Garlic Smoked Chicken.  The chicken provided approximately 2 hours for us to test the thermometer and check its limits.  The thermometer performed flawlessly and actually exceeded expectations.  Check out our review below.

Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs

Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs

I am a sucker for sweet and spicy flavor profiles.  So when we had a few chicken breasts lying around and a can of pineapple chunks, I knew that I had to make kabobs.  To be honest, I have never been to Hawaii or even had traditional Hawaiian food.  So the authenticity of this dish is not purely Hawaiian, but Hawaiian in style.  These Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs are a chicken kabob coated in a sweet and spicy sauce that takes you right to the beach.

I love Chipotle!  It is delicious, so I decided to recreate a burrito bowl.  I utilized my fajitas seasoning, skirt steak, some black beans, cilantro lime rice, salsa and guacamole to create one of the greatest meals known to man.  Dana said it was her favorite meal ever!  That says a lot.  The combination of rice, black beans, meat and cheese is Amazing!

Honey Soy Chicken Skewers

Honey Soy Chicken Skewers

Since the snow has melted we have been itching to grill.  So I decided to dust off the Weber Grill and make some chicken.  I wanted to use only the ingredients that I had in the house, so I raided the pantry.  I had soy sauce and honey.  Boom, honey soy chicken. Sounds like a winning combination to me.  Since I wanted to maximize surface area of the chicken that absorbed the marinade, I decided to cube the chicken and skewer it.  This was a great combination which is going to be added to our regular dinner rotation.  You have to try this.

Hatch Green Chiles Enchiladas

Dana and I are huge fans of Green Chiles.  We love them on burgers and are huge fans of green chile enchiladas.  We have them all of the time when we go out to eat.  A couple of weeks ago the fine people over at http://www.hatch-green-chile.com/ provided us with 5lbs of medium Hatch green chiles.  These are top notch chiles, fire roasted, seeded and then flash frozen.  They then deliver them right to your door in a cooler filled with dry ice.  Pretty much the only way to get Hatch chiles on the east coast.  Once we received them we knew right away that we wanted to make some green chile enchiladas.

Braided Lemon Pepper Chicken Skewers

Lemon Pepper Chicken

I love chicken!  It is the perfect blank canvas for any flavor.  One of my favorite flavors to impart on chicken is lemon pepper. A little tart with a little bite.  The perfect combination.  Lately, I have come up with a new way to skewer chicken that gives you an added oomph of flavor.  It works with any sauce and works especially well with marinades.  The chicken is thinly sliced and then braided onto a skewer.  That way you have little nooks and crevices that allow the sauce and marinade to pool.  Then when you eat the chicken you get flavor bursts that enhance the experience.

Oven Baked Chicken Tenders

Oven Baked Chicken Tenders

I love chicken tenders, but I hate always having to pull out the deep fryer.  The problem with oven baked tenders is that they are never crispy and delicious like their fried counterpart.  So, I was experimenting and found the perfect way to bake crispy and juicy chicken tenders.  The key is panko bread crumbs and vegetable spray.
