Tonight we were back to the grill.  Last night I put some frozen chicken thighs in this marinade and they were thawed and ready to cook for dinner tonight.  Unfortunately, we ran out of fuel just as Bill started to heat up the BBQ grill.  So, he had to run to the store to get another bottle of gas. I had just pulled the foccacia out of the oven and popped the broccoli in.  So much for a perfectly timed dinner!  LOL  Anyway, the chicken did get cooked and it was delicious.  Love this recipe!  I think next time I might use a little less cayenne, it was a little intense.  But, oh, so flavorful.  . The broccoli was kind of a mixed review.  Because it was done before the chicken we had to warm it up again in the microwave.  Probably lost a little something in the translation there.  And, the broccoli was a little old and tough to start with so I'm sure with some fresh broccoli it would make a huge difference.  That being said, I think this recipe has real possibilities. Also, next time I will put the oil and  broccoli in a zip loc to get it well coated. Its not as messy and you also use less oil this way.  I will try it again for sure.
     Not sure what tomorrow will bring.. Maybe an omelet?  Its a little tricky trying to cook without dairy.  I don't think I ever realized how much cheese I use normally.

  1. Sounds like a great menu. The best part is that Chris would do most of the cooking...Now if I only had the ingrediants...
