One of my favorite parts of late spring into summer…corn! It starts appearing in the stores and I get so excited. Zucchini is generally good year-round even if the price is higher, or at least okay. But corn? The fresh kind is only good in the summer and it is awesome. I’ve been buying some each week just because I can’t resist it.
Have you ever had a bit of cilantro leftover and wanted to use it before it went bad, but didn’t have a need for it? Or maybe another fresh leafy herb like basil? I came across this idea awhile ago, and then prepped the cilantro awhile ago, but didn’t use it immediately. I discovered that it worked in a pinch (pun intended) for this chicken recipe. I decided to pass along the tip here for others who might be interested.
To be honest, I don’t think this is really close at all to traditional jerk chicken. At least, not from what I’ve seen previously. But, I do think it is a tasty sweet and slightly spicy chicken dish. You can certainly add extra spice to it, but as usual….we tone things down a bit in this house. More of a 1 star kind of restaurant here, haha.
K has requested soup, but he never has ideas for what soup he wants. So, I had most of the ingredients for this soup, and I made a few additions based on what I thought would taste good. It came together really easily, especially because I had the chopping done ahead of time.
Previously, I shared on here the dessert I made and ate the day I went into labor with the Fudgelet. Today I am sharing the dinner I made for us that night. I would also like to give a shout-out to my Aunt Lulu for her birthday today, and to Dad and M for their anniversary! This recipe has nothing to do with either celebration since I am pretty sure that none of those people would eat this. But! Maybe they should try it? 🙂
If you’ve been following along since last week, you will know what to expect for today! The conclusion to a dinner we had. It was tasty and fun to eat, with lots of this and that on the plate.
This recipe sounded really fresh and perfect for this time of year. I adapted the sauce and used it with chicken. It turned out really well. I could definitely see using this sauce with chicken, beef, or any other protein. It is like a pesto, but perfect for an Asian-styled meal.
