By | Asian, Chicken, Fast, Grill | No Comments

What you need: 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar 1/4 cup honey 1/4 cup brown sugar 2 tablespoons soy sauce 3 cloves garlic, minced 1” fresh ginger, peeled and minced 1/2 teaspoon pepper 4 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless. (I was out of chicken breasts, so we used tenderloins) What you do: Combine all ingredients in a resealable bag and marinate at room temperature for about 20 minutes or all day in the refrigerator. (I did about 3 hours in the refrigerator and it was perfect) You can cook the chicken however you like. We grilled the chicken and it turned out great. We don’t have a BBQ grill, so we just used our electric griddle. But you can also cook it in a pan for about 4 minutes on each side until cooked through. It has an amazing flavor. We also made a little balsamic salad to eat on the side, which…

Easy and Delicious Fried Rice

By | Asian, easy, Rice Dinners | 2 Comments

I had a looongg day at word this past week. I work at a high school as a Mathematics teacher and sometimes Parent Teacher Conference is quite the adventure. My husband made this rice for me and steamed some chicken in our electronic steamer. (one of the easiest ways to cook chicken, just set it and forget it)I have had fried rice at restaurants before, but this home-made kind was even better! We have made it multiple times since and I always forget to take a better picture. I don’t know why the picture looks so unappetizing because it really is delicious. I really don’t spend much time plating or taking pictures of my food…I want to eat it while it is hot! One day I will become a better food photographer – but for now this is all you get. What you need: 3-4 cups cooked rice (cooled) 2…

Orange Chicken Stir Fry

By | Asian, Chicken, Dinner, Rice Dinners, Sunday Dinners | No Comments

Holy delicious!!!!!  I was in the mood for some Chinese food for dinner and I live in a small town in Utah, and no where around here really delivers Chinese food, so I went with homemade. I also don’t love Chinese take-out as there is usually always a fatty piece of chicken in there and I really like my chicken well-trimmed. This orange chicken stir fry is to die for. It is our new go to recipe. As you can see from the picture, the chicken is not crispy or breaded like you may think about when you think about “orange chicken” from say Panda Express. No, this orange flavor comes from the stir fry sauce. Yummy! Much better than store bought processed sauces. I like crispy chicken as much as the next girl, but the flavor of this makes up for the lack of fried or breaded deliciousness. What…
