Hi everyone. Please click on the title of this post to read more. Firstly, I want to announce that Parents Who Rock will be performing on Sunday at a wonderful benefit event in Montclair, more details on www.parentswhorock.com/events/ Yours truly will be performing solo at 12:30. I will also be the local food sponsor for Baby Loves Disco on Saturday but it is SOLD OUT! If you want tickets for the Oct. or Nov. dates, go to www.babylovesdisco.com. Secondly, I want to make a promise to you all; I will NEVER use words in my recipes like “whisper thin slices” or descriptions such as “kissed with flavors of…”. I just wanted to make that known.
O.K., so I’m not going to lie; I have been doing work and making calls from the bathroom of my gym, urine puddles on the floor and all. My sitter quit to take a full time job, there’s babysitting at the gym for $1.00/hour-it’s a no-brainer. Hey, it’s not like I’m not working out first…..
We are all busy, it’s a given. Figuring out little pockets of free time to do our work and plan and make our meals allows us to do what we need to do. I learn the lyrics for my concerts on my ipod while I am working out, plan dinner party menus, etc. In essence, we have to get creative and multi-task if we are able.
I planned 2 days ahead to make a meal for my sound guys for my big Parents Who Rock event this past weekend, knowing I would be crazed the day of the show and the meal and show went off without a hitch (although I made a rookie error, didn’t taste my black beans before serving them and they were awfully in need of some salt-sorry guys).
Check out this quick and very tasty recipe (as well as the video below) I got from my old H.S. friend, Kathleen-you’ll be glad you did…
Kathleen’s Tandoori Chicken:
3 lbs of chicken (kosher is best/mix of breasts, legs, thighs)
1 tsp salt
1 cup plain yogurt
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 tsps minced garlic
2 tsps minced ginger
11/2 tsps garam masala (Indian spice sold in Whole Foods or anywhere that sells Indian food-use a little more for intensity:)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Score and rub chicken pieces with salt. Mix all the ingredients and marinate the chicken overnight or for several hours. Shake off most of the marinade and drizzle chicken with a little oil. Cook at 500 for 45 minutes. Thighs will be done in 30-35 minutes. Enjoy them hot or cold. Dee-licious!
