HEY YA'LL! I know crazy isn't it! A Monday's Menu ON MONDAY! Who woulda thunk?! That is the kinda craziness that happens when life starts to settle back into some sorta schedule! I LOVE BACK TO SCHOOL! 1 down, 2 to go! Oh yeah, did I mention Mal & Dawson start school this year? Yep! Developmental Preschool. Not only will I get 3 hours to myself almost every morning, but I will ALSO get rid of about 5 different therapy appointments! They will now be at school with the kids EVERYDAY! WIN WIN!! Oh I love WIN WIN!! More on all of this LATER!
For now, it is time to discuss and share what we had for dinner last night! Mmmm Mmmm!! This recipe comes from my sister in law, that I just so happen to love like KAH-RAZY! Jasmine, move closer to me! I would love that SOOO very much! PA-LEEEEZZ!!
So Jazzy Jazzer Jazersize sent this to me, then spent weeks encouraging me to try it. Why did it take weeks? Well, because I wasn't feelin the making dinner thing for a few weeks! My poor fam! NO WORRIES! I am back and they are happy! So let's get to making you happy!
CITRUS GRILLERS CHICKEN
4 small Boneless Skinless chicken breasts (alright, I used thighs, PW told me to and she gave me knives so I do what she says, DANG IT!)
5 medium oranges
1/2 c. Bulls Eye Original BBQ Sauce
Easy so far, right?! So, take your BBQ sauce and squeeze all of the juice from one orange. Now mix them together. Pour half of it in a resealable bag. Now add the meat. Put it in the fridge for about 15 min.
Now, cut your remaining oranges into 4 slices each. Notice the cameo appearance! OH YEAH, those are the knives that dreams are made of people! They cut through oranges like they are butter! I have never giggled, well alright cackled is probably closer, like I did when I was chopping veggies, fruit & even raw meat! I love you PW, have I told you that lately?!
Alright, now go preheat your grill to medium.Now place your chicken on the slices. I guess if I was following the recipe I would stretch 1 breast over 2 slices, however.....
Now brush the chicken with your remaining sauce. NO, not the one that came from the bag, use the other half, still in the bowl!
Cook for 5 min.
Grill your remaining orange slices and put them on a plate. (Alright so we burnt the snot out of most the oranges, 2 it is!) Then add the chicken. Throw the slices you cooked the chicken on away. You know, the whole raw chicken thing!
This is some yummy stuff! I loved it, Ryan (who is generally not a citrus kinda guy) loved it and the kids wouldn't touch it! Not because it wasn't good, because they are stingy, picky little stinkers and there was jello to be had! NICE! If it is any consolation, Mal did gnaw on some spinach leaves and ate plenty of carrots & raisins. Yes, that did it, I feel better!
