Spicy onion citrus chicken

Yes you read this right…..this is Jeff posting.  I know it has been over three months but let us face it when Spring hits you have to take some time off and enjoy it.  Ok that is a load of b.s. truth be told I have been getting slaughtered at work between more responsibility and moving to a larger department (ok not much bigger people wise but a larger footprint which equates to cooler toys with same pay).

Fear not though I have been a grilling fool who sometimes drags a camera out to shoot.  However, I have been very lacking in the photography department (as evident by a plating picture that has overexposed rice).  However, my personal goal is to at least shoot a couple times a week relax and unwind (beats my other vices which will eventually kill me).  I also know garden updates went over really well last year so hopefully the ground can actually dry out enough that I can drag the camera out there without needing waders or a kayak.

Hmmm well unless you want to be bored to tears with talk of Cisco, VLANs, EIGRP, and all other joys of networking I am going to lob the ball to you and simply ask what has everyone else been up to????

For this recipe you will need:

  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 habanero
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 2 shallots
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 cup combined of chives/thyme/parsley
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Couple whole cloves
  • 4 allspice berries (about 1/2 teaspoon in powder)

Steps to success:

  1. Combine everything in a food pro (blender would work too)
  2. Spin until a semi-chunky mess.
  3. Pour over chicken.
  4. Hmmmm….ok now it gets difficult….throw into the fridge for 4-6 hours and bake at 400 for 40 minutes or grill it up.

p.s. yes I know grammar and spelling still sucks and if it would have been perfect people would be calling foul……

    Work schmirk! Such a slacker. ;) What have I been up to? Not too much–kids are out of school, so me and them are all being lazy bums.

    The chicken looks and sounds incredible! I love citrus chicken–I always have. Next time we have some, I need to try this. Good to see you, J!

    It’s chicken, so wouldn’t they call “fowl”? :-D Sorry. I am the queen of bad puns. Chicken does look quite tasty though.

    Heather! Either your voice has changed, or your site’s been hacked! Who IS this guy?!?

    Seriously, though, this is exactly my kind of dish and I love these flavors. Welcome back, Jeff – don’t be a stranger! ;-)
