Political rantings, cultural musings... and now FOOD!
Friends, greetings from Janee's Kitchen!
All this talk of politics and socio-cultural issues makes me hungry. So let me share my recipes with you and your beloveds. Any, every and all are welcome to take a seat at my kitchen table. Let us cook together, break bread together and live peacefully together. My food can be enjoyed by everyone- Democrats, Republicans, Progressives, Libertarians, the apathetic, Martians, children, illegal aliens, career women and stay at home dads...
If you like to eat well and be happy then I invite you to try my recipes. I will post my original recipes as often as the muse inspires my culinary creativity. Your comments and suggestions are especially welcome.
Let's get the party started!
Chicken in Sweet Onion Marinade
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (4 equally sized breasts)
1 large sweet onion (Vidalia, if you can get it, but feel free to substitute a Spanish onion)
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup olive oil
1/2 cup white cooking wine or water
8 bay leaves
1 teaspoon fennel seed
4 garlic cloves
Combine all ingredients except chicken in the bowl of a food processor or blender. Puree, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed until the mixture is smooth.
Place chicken in a single layer in a shallow dish. Pour over marinade and turn to coat each piece of chicken. Cover and marinate for eight hours or overnight.
Heat grill or grill pan over medium heat.
Remove chicken from marinade and shake gently to remove excess marinade. Place on grill and cook for ten minutes on one side. Turn chicken once and grill on the other side for eight to ten minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in the center.
