I’ve been working so hard on opening a business and other things this week, that I found myself worn out today and wanting a quick fix for dinner. Scanning through the fridge, I found some roasted chicken, some fresh organic corn, and lots of organic salad stuff. And we’d gotten some BBQ sauce called Chikn Lickin or something like that and there was no high fructose corn syrup anywhere on the ingredient list (if it passes that test and the salt test, you are usually home free). And it was then and there that a BBQ Chicken Dinner came to me! Absolutely amazing how that happens!
I pulled the chicken off the bones and put a little BBQ sauce on top. Popped it in the microwave for a few minutes and then let it sit to marinate.
Before I put the chicken in I started some water boiling and then when it was rolling, dropped in the corn. I like to add a little sweetner in my corn, especially in the winter when its not usually at it’s best, so I added a squirt of agave nectar (see my post on using Agave nectar in the Techniques section). Turn the heat down to low once it comes back to boil, and then boil for about 8-10 minutes.
While the corn boiled, I threw together a salad with some organic green leaf lettuce, spinach, cucumber, orange bell pepper and red onions, dressed with a little olive oil vinegarette.
Viola! 20 minutes tops and dinner is served!
That gave me plenty of extra time to spend on my Apple Crisp for dessert! Yum!
