This is my second month with the Secret Recipe Club.
How’s it going, you ask?
You really want to know, now don’t you?
I’ve been cooking since the beginning of time and blogging about it almost as long. Most of the participants that I have checked out, and admittedly that is just the proverbial ‘tip of the iceberg’, have not.
Many of them appear to be youngish with small children.
Many of them appear to be relatively new to the kitchen.
The bloggers with kids tend to gravitate towards cookies and cupcakes and such which I rarely, if ever, make.
The bloggers that are new cooks tend to be, well, new cooks.
Which means that I have to search a bit to find a recipe that both appeals to me and works for cooking for a diabetic.
And I am thoroughly enjoying the searches.
Rather than just pulling up the index, scanning, clicking and printing I’m having a leisurely stroll through the blogs and it’s fun. It’s also fun to get recipes from cooks who were not taught in the same way by the same generation as I was.
This month I got to choose a recipe from Cheese with Noodles. As it’s summer I went right to the ‘grilling’ section and found this:
Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken
Total time: 30 minutes
- 2 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
- 4 tbs Dijon-style mustard
- 3 tbs honey
- 1 1/2 tbs mayonnaise
- 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp Herbes de Provence
- In small bowl mix all ingredients except chicken
- Remove 1/3 of the sauce for finishing. Spoon the remainder over the chicken.
- Allow to marinate 10 – 15 minutes or up to 4 hours in the refrigerator.
- Remove chicken from marinade.
- Cook chicken on barbecue grill for 7 – 10 minutes per side, or until done, basting once, before turning, with marinade.
- When chicken is done, remove and slice.
- Spoon reserved sauce over the top and serve.
Cheese with Noodles is written by Anna, who lives in Alaska with a husband and a menagerie of pets, including a Great Pyrenees puppy…. Woman after my own heart.
She has a lot of delicious-sounding recipes, including a long list of pasta dishes that had me drooling. I’ve decided that even if mon mari would rather not eat pasta (ahem) I’m going to start making ‘pasta for one’ and he can just be jealous.
He’s an adult…. He can handle it.
