Well, I was half-paying attention to this game right after the Vikings marched right down for a touchdown after the Bears went three and out on their first drive.
So, instead of talking about this shit fest, I have decided to recap what I had for dinner last night. That would be some delicious Southern-style marinated chicken with mashed potatoes, corn and a cold Mountain Dew.
I have lived by myself for the last eight years. At the time I first went out on my own, I was working in a restaurant delivering food and washing dishes on other days to pull in extra cash. During that period, I learned how to cook, both from my co-workers and on my own. As time went on, I have been trying new recipes for food aside from the basics so I wouldn’t get bored just eating the Mac and Cheese, sandwiches and pizza like I did before.
For some reason, I can never perfect the chicken I make on my own. I usually just buy some, throw salt, pepper and butter on it and put it in the oven. For the last few years, I usually go to a local meat market to buy some chicken, steak and beef that has already been spiced up.
I did the same thing yesterday. A few months ago, I bought some garlic chicken breasts that was buttered up. Yesterday, I ended up getting some Southern-style marinated chicken similar to what you see in the picture. This is the first time I had bought this type.
I have to say, my expectations were surpassed. It was just marinated enough with pepper to make it spicy, but not too much. I was thinking about adding some butter but figured, I would try half of it first without it.
This was probably the most delicious chicken I have had in quite some time. Combine that with potatoes and corn and it was a fantastic dish. When I make sandwiches, I usually just take a chicken breast, put pepper, Cajun seasoning and cover it with some mozzarella cheese. I have to say that I am fairly proud of myself for making such a wonderful decision.
It’s real simple to make, especially since the folks at the meat market took care of most of it for me. I get the oven to 375 degrees and it’s ready in about 45 minutes.
I think recapping this delicious food feels much better than recapping a Bears or Bulls game. I, for one, dig it. Feel free to share what you guys enjoy cooking.
