I had a bunch of Labne yogurt leftover and was reminded of this chicken recipe. I used to make this chicken in the summertime on the grill all the time. The mild tanginess of the yogurt and the sweetness of the ketchup creates a flavor profile that is hard to resist. Finish it off with some spicy herb potatoes and a perfect dinner awaits you!
"The recipe originally called for chicken breast, however, I found some beautiful boneless, skinless chicken thighs on sale this week and used those instead. They were moist and even more flavorful than the chicken breasts."
1.5 pounds Boneless, Skinless, Chicken Thighs 3 cloves minced garlic 1/2 tbs tomato paste 2 tbs ketsup 1/4 cup yogurt 1/4 cup lemon juice 1/2 tsp salt 1 tsp paprika
1. Trim fat and excess membranes from chicken thighs. 2. Cut chicken into 1/2 inch cubes and place in a plastic bag. 3. Place all ingredients into the plastic bag and shake to combine, making sure chicken is covered. 4. Let marinate in refrigerator for 2-3 hours. 5. If grilling outdoors, skewer onto metal skewers and grill about 5 minutes on each side, rotating so that they do not burn. Otherwise preheat oven to 450-degrees and cook for 10-15 minutes on a greased pan.
2.5 Pounds Red Potatoes, Washed, Dried and Cut into Cubes 1 Handful Chopped Parsley 1 Handful Chopped Cilantro 1/2 tsp Cayenne 1 Tsp Salt 8 Cloves Minced Garlic 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
1. Lay potatoes out on foil sheet pan and toss lightly in 2 tbsp olive oil. Place in a 450-degree oven until potatoes are done, 30 minutes. 2. Add the remaining olive oil to a pan along with the remaining ingredients. 3. Cook on medium heat fro 10 minutes, make sure not burn the herbs and garlic. 4. Remove the potatoes from the oven and pour the herb garlic mixture over them.
Years ago, I followed my dreams and went to culinary school. I went to culinary school to continue the dream that my mother and I always shared: to open up a deli or cafe somewhere and call it our own. Whether that cafe will ever open is still up in the air...but my cooking and my love for food I owe to my mother...and in a way this blog is dedicated to her...I only hope that I can inspire other women with this blog the way my mother inspired me...With her love for food passed onto me, I quickly became a food snob after culinary school. Today, a house, a husband' (and his stomach),and an up and coming business keeps me busy enough without all my gourmet concoctions! But, no matter how busy I am, I still go to my kitchen and cook to retain my sanity. Prehaps this is a way I connect to my mother...but cooking is the only thing that truely soothes my soul. My recent transformation has led me to belive that sometimes you just have to Keep It Simple Stupid...and Cook!

But those aren't the flavors. That'd make too much sense. Apple and pear, according to Dr. Phil, are body types the bars are made for. Hey, I've got some advice. If you look like an apple or a pear, eat an apple or a pear! [On Dr. Phil's energy bars. ~Lewis Black
