"Tourist Thai", but very tasty - and not a skewer in sight! The prep time includes the minutes the chicken has spent swimming in the marinade. I found this in a 1980's Harrowsmith Cookbook, and do it on occasion with chicken breasts.
Here's another chicken recipe I clipped from a magazine in my "to try" file. It seems rich with an orange cream sauce, but "virtuous" because it is served with couscous..LOL...It sounds like it would be quick to throw together.
The theory is you dump this in a bag and freeze to pull out later. There are many variations which I will post separately but it's amazingly easy to make these up and have a different "dump" chicken every week!
Because DH and I are empty nesters, I am always on the lookout for recipes for 2. And because I love to grill, I will grill the meat for several meals at one time and use it several different ways. This recipe fits both requirements; the perfect meal for 2 and also perfect to use up that leftover chicken. This is my version of a recipe that I saw in one of the TOH magazines. Hope you enjoy as much as we do.
I like making the chicken this way because it seems much quicker and easier than the traditional way. I can get this on the table in no time. I usually serve this with garlic mashed potatoes and fried string beans.
While watching FoodTV, I saw a piece about Amy Ruth's restaurant in New York where the owner made fried chicken dipped in a honey cinnamon mixture. It looked so good I began searching on the web for a recipe which approximated it... and after much browsing of webpages I put together a recipe that I thought might taste something like it. I don't fry my chicken, so here's a baked version, tweaked to my own tastes.
Cabbage and meat mildly seasoned with garlic and onions in a creamy cheese sauce and topped with breadcrumbs for a pretty presentation! A real comfort food. Even those who say they HATE cabbage will eat this and like it! I have even made this without the meat- using bulgur and veggie broth. Here is how: Just replace the meat with the same amount of bulgur- (for 1 lb of meat sub 1 cup bulgur) you will want to soak the bulgur according to the instructions on the package- if you bought it in bulk here is how...
Bring 2 cups of veggie broth ( can use bouillon and water) per 1 cup bulgur
When broth is boiling stir in bulgur. Cover and simmer about 15 minutes or until bulgur is soft. All the broth should be absorbed. Fluff the bulgur with a fork as you would rice and add to your recipe.
I have used beef, pork, turkey and chicken with great results too.

A fast and healthier way to serve Chimichangas than the traditional deep fried. These are very good, and you may dress them up to you own preference. I like to serve with green chile sauce sometimes instead of the picante sauce.
It is fast easy and delicious. It is great for potlucks and if company drops in. 1 dish easy clean up and the whole family will love it and ask for seconds so next time you will have to double the recipe.
