Hope you guys enjoyed the holiday season, I sure did! Lots of good eating. I had this plan to take photos of all the food but it didn’t happen. I was too busy enjoying the food, then suddenly it was over.
Hope your 2013 is off to a great start though. Made any resolutions?
I have one. Simpler meals. I’d really like to cut down on preparation time in the kitchen, especially in the evenings. If you have any great ideas for that let me know (^_^)
For this first post of the year, I cut down preparation and cooking time by using some leftovers, and marinating the chicken the night before.
The chicken was marinated in:
Freshly grated garlic
Some lemon grates
Juice of half a lime
The marinade had no salt in it so I sprinkled some on both sides while it was cooking. Careful not to put too much though, always better to add later while you eat.
The potatoes were a leftover takeaway from dinner at a restaurant the previous night (^_^) So the rating is just for the chicken and spinach side.
The chicken had a nice lemony flavour going on the outside and the inside was very tender. Slow cooking on low heat always helps keep the meat tender. That spinach though, so overcooked! *sigh*
