I wish I could take credit for this next recipe. Really I wish I could take credit for most recipes I prepare, but that’s neither here nor there. So let me introduce you to
The Best Marinade in the World….
In a blender combine:
8 cloves of garlic
1/4 white onion
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
1/2 tsp tumeric
juice and zest of one lime
1/2 cup olive oil
Pour into a Ziploc Baggie and add chunks of chicken. Marinate over night. Thread the chicken on skewers, then fire up the grill!
I got this recipe from Nathan and Misti. Nathan made this for Misti’s birthday back in August, and it was talked about by Matthew and I on many occasions. I called Nathan Saturday night and asked many a question regarding that dinner. I think I did justice in making it for my father-in-law’s birthday last night.
Along with the amazing grilled chicken, I made Tzatziki Sauce. It is a labor intensive sauce, but well worth the time and effort. You might know it as the yogurt sauce that comes on Gyro’s and other Greek food.
Then I pickled some turnips. It’s a nice addition to any pita sandwich. Here’s how:
3/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup water
2 cloves of garlic – minced
one beet. (you can use fresh beets, but I went with one from a can)
Julienne your turnips and put in a jar of this mixture. Let it set over night. You’ll love the crunchy goodness!
