Back in my own kitchen
I guess we can all define Luxuries to our own taste and making those things pleasurable. I personally think that there is no better way to relax decompress and regroup than by taking pleasure in the simple things.... like comfort cooking.
I do miss my own kitchen when I am out of town visiting family, although I often insist on taking control of their kitchen.
My husband can cook and does a great job when I am away and can create a few great dishes on his own. He is the "master griller"...and the BBQ grill is ready all year long.
This Grilled Citrus Chicken recipe was very good. It is low fat and only 173 calories per serving. We are really trying to watch our consumption of healthy food and this I found delicious. Wine? I would pair this dish with a pinot grissio or a good chardenay. Guaranteed to get a WOW!
Grilled Citrus Chicken
6 boneless chicken breasts (1 ½ lbs) or whole thighs
½ cup packed brown sugar
¼ cup cider vinegar
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
3 Tablespoons lime juice
3Tablespoons Dijon mustard
¾ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon black pepper
Place the chicken in a shallow glass dish. Combine all ingredients and pour over the chicken. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours or over night. Drain. Discard the marinade. Grill chicken over medium-hot coals, turning once until juices run clear, about 15-18 minutes. Yield 6 servings Bon Appetite!
