BOURBAN Chicken… in a Bourban Bowl, from a FREEZER MEAL!
So I am venturing through some ‘hoarded’ recipes… I want to develop a list of PERFECT FOR THE GRILL (but can be cooked many other ways) freezer meals for a summer MEAL APEAL workshop. Last weekend I played with this BOURBAN marinade and also THIS – CHICKEN SOUVLAKI and TZATZIKI SAUCE (HERE) recipe.
I love days when I can just mess around in my kitchen – and they are so few and far between right now… It makes me wonder why I can’t find the perfect job where all I do is shop for groceries and prepare meals for people (with NO clean up) AND to be paid BIG bucks to do so…. Is that too much to ask??
Well at Chez Kelsey, I sometimes get paid in love and kisses – after all I do have 2 doggies that appreciate my skills!! My husband loves all these great dishes but he would be happy with a bologna sandwich and these kids of mine…. They’re all like – aww Mom, can’t we have cereal?!! They just don’t know how lucky they are – oh but I tell them… EVERY SINGLE DAY!!
Seriously though – first the SOUVLAKI (HERE) then this BOURBAN CHICKEN…. Oh me oh my…. BOTH are absolutely AMAZING and have risen to the very top of my recipe file! Both are awesome because you can essentially dump all the ingredients into/onto the chicken and either throw it in the freezer for later, or make it right then.
Here is the Bourbon marinade – I used on 2.5 lbs of chicken breast:
1 small onion, chopped
1 c honey
½ c soy sauce
¼ c ketchup
1 TBS veg oil
1 tsp minced garlic
¼ tsp red pepper flakes
¼ c Bourbon – optional
So easy… dump everything on the chicken and then you can grill it, or crockpot it or even throw it in a skillet with some flour to thicken… I chose the skillet and the thickening… then served over mixed stir fry veggies and rice…
