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… was absolutely mouth-watering delicious, and so easy to make!

Try it and let me know what you think!

Have a blessed evening….

It was almost too hot to handle!

I love tomatoes. Just adore them….there’s so much that you can do with them, and it was going to be a friend’s birthday and she likes hot sauce, so I thought to myself…..let me just create a home-made “hot sauce”! 

I went to Whole Foods and purchased habaneros…..and promptly found out just how potent they are….those chilies will definitely clear your sinuses and fast! A tip….do not, under any circumstances, touch your face after chopping up habaneros…..they will sting you and wake you up faster than you can blink! Believe me, I had a personal encounter and let me tell you, I felt the burn!!!

So I opted to use about 6 oz. of tomato paste, 2 habaneros (what was I thinking….but it was my first time working with them!!!), black pepper, cayenne, red pepper, Louisiana hot sauce, and let it all come together in a food processor….and boy, was it HOT! 

Not only did I make the “hot sauce,” I also used this sauce to make parmesan-hot sauce biscuits, which did not take off the roof of my mouth. They were actually good and not too spicy.
