Chicken breast, look into brining them first.
I've become a big fan of brining. It keeps the CHICKEN juicy while at the same time adding good flavor to your CHICKEN.
I'm having the fellas over to watch the game and only one thing on the menu.
soak your chicken in a cup of it for an hour (or 24).
The fig things are even better if you stuff them with a little gorgonzola first.
Just run some strong bleu right up the middle of those fig things before you put the heat to them.
Also gonna make my usual nacho dip close to kickoff and drink assorted beers, nothing special on the beverage docket.
Surf and Turf. A piece of chocolate cake (her choice) and a piece of carrot cake (mine). After everyone leaves the reception, we will try to catch the second half.
Old Bay, oregano, basil and black pepper rubbed wings grilled indirectly on the Big Green Egg. Finish them in hot sauce and crisp them up.
We're doing chicken marsala with orzo over here, along with an attempt at roasted figs stuffed with goat cheese. It seemed only appropriate.
Making mango habañero chicken wings.
It only makes sense to fry some catfish tonight. :)))))
No cute plays on figs or chicken but some pretty damn good game food:
My wife is making her insanely good beef mini-empenedas. Basically, ground beef cooked up with tomato paste, cut up onions and tons of spices. Each spoonful of beef is then wrapped in a pastry of some kind. Amazing game food. For dessert, fresh baked "crunchy-jumble" cookies (chocolate chip cookie base mixed with chocolate chunks and Rice Krispies). And some Cabernet to go with the meal.
I like your wife
I was going to prepare some BBQ to take to my buddy's house in NJ but my fiance is running late. Not sure what time we will get there.
