Contemplate the thought of a Ginger, Apple and Onion sauce with Chicken……severe YUM Factor!!!

If you’re tuning in today, you might wonder what is going on….chicken again???!!  But this chicken is really delish.  Definitely different and so, oh, very tasty.

Publix, my local supermarket, did have a special sale on chicken, so I stocked up!  Before starting my Insanity workout, I took the chicken out to defrost and get ready for the next adventurous recipe.  Once I finished another crazy workout, now fully energized I went to the kitchen and started rummaging through my fridge.

Out came two onions, one apple, and 1 teaspoon of unsalted butter.  Got the butter melting and then chopped the onions and the apples and let them cook together for a good 10 minutes, shaking in about 2 teaspoons of powdered ginger and a dash of salt.

Once that started bubbling, I placed chicken thighs right on top of the mix, and poured 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar on top, covered the pan, and let it cook on high for about half an hour.  Midway through (after about 15 minutes or so), I turned the chicken over and placed some of the onions and apples on top.

After it had been cooking for the half hour, I took 8 oz of peas and poured them in, letting them soak in the goodness of the onion/apple sauce for about five minutes.

And then I dived in! Wow….talk about flavor…..such yumminess…..it was absolutely mouth-watering delicious, and so easy to make!

Try it and let me know what you think!

Have a blessed evening….

My citrus torrid love affair continues…..with lemons!

My grandmother had the loveliest lemon tree in the backyard.  From the first lemon that I plucked from that tree as a little girl, I’ve loved the lemoniness loveliness of fresh lemons!

So tonight after my Insanity workout (yes, I am now 3 weeks into the insanity of the Insanity workout) I sought good fuel after an awesome workout.  The challenge: create a healthy meal from my cupboards, so off I went in search thereof.

Found chicken thighs……tomato paste…..minced garlic…asparagus…a large and juicy lemon and an orange.  Simple, right?  And soooooo delicious!

I took about half a teaspoon of unsalted butter and allowed that to melt into two tablespoons of tomato paste and 2 tablespoons of minced garlic with a third of a cup of water and allowed those ingredients to marry before placing the chicken thighs right on top, with slices of lemon perched on each one, after having been juiced into the bubbling sauce.   After approximately 15 minutes, the chicken was turned over to its other side for another 10 minutes. I chopped the asparagus and dropped it right into the pan and allowed it to cook right with the chicken in that delectable sauce, juicing the orange right on top of the asparagus and leaving the orange in the pan. 

 

Not five minutes later, the aroma coming from the kitchen beckoned me for a taste test and oh my! How delicious.  I fixed myself a plate and enjoyed each bite!! 

 Talk about wonderful flavor…..it was just amazing how good lemons are with anything! I found that I couldn’t help myself from eating the lemon itself!!!

What a wonderful meal….and the best part – I’ve got my lunch and dinner for tomorrow from making this meal tonite! It’s easy, fast and so wonderfully tasty. 

I didn’t use any salt nor pepper nor any other spice……the lemon and orange did the work in creating such an awesome sauce with the minced garlic and tomato paste, so it’s an option for those that have to restrict their sodium intake.

Try it yourself and let me know what you think!!!

Have a blessed evening.
