Is it bad that when I hear “honey” my mind fills in “boo boo child”?
I’ve never even seen this show!
My mom thinks it’s despicable that I watch the Kardashians, so I haven’t dared to indulge in a show about an incestuous family raising a beauty queen.
At least that’s what I gather the show is about. Don’t correct me.
SPEAKING of television. Whoa, Dexter. Whoa.
I wanted to watch Revenge and Homeland last night, too, but I couldn’t stay awake. I only got about 3 hours of sleep on Saturday night because I had some of my BFFs from Loyola visiting, and staying awake chit chatting in the kitchen until 4 AM was a requirement.
Then I taught Body Pump yesterday and thought I was going to fall off the stage because I had the shakes, but hoped I wouldn’t because you could probably smell the Boordy Rockfish coming from my pores. Whoops-a-daisy.
Given that, it’s ironic that I’m giving you a recipe with alcohol in it. I made this last week and it was mmmm mmmm good.
Honey Beer Chicken
3-4 chicken breasts (or thighs)
olive oil, salt, pepper
1/4 onion, finely chopped
1 large clove garlic, minced
1/2 a beer
1 1/2 tbs honey
2 tbs chopped fresh parsley
Pat the chicken dry and season it with salt and pepper on each side. Cook it in a little bit of olive oil until browned on each side. Remove from pan.
Lower the heat in the pan, then add about half a beer. I used a Smithwick’s Irish Ale that had been in our refrigerator since St. Patrick’s Day. That’s one way to dispose of it. I of course drank the other half and it was still good. Add the onion, garlic, and honey. Stir to combine. Continue to cook under medium-low heat until it reduces to about half the original content. Add the parsley at the end.
Pour over chicken and enjoy! This definitely tastes like beer, so I recommend using a good beer. Natty Light chicken is probably not a new trend.
THEN the next day, in a stroke of genius, I took the leftover chicken breast that had been sitting and soaking up the sauce for 24 hours, and shoved it into a quesadilla with pepper jack cheese and sauteed kale.
