This post is a bit of a risk today, since it breaks the orange/black theme. However, I made this recipe a few days ago, and it’s fast, easy, and mess-free. So: it’s good for eating in front of the TV, and if you put the chicken on skewers, it goes with the general ballpark theme of food-on-sticks. Think of it as an alternative to corn dogs. Or chicken fingers. Or a cross between the two.
The method is this: cut about 1 lb of boneless, skinless chicken breast into thin strips. Thread it onto bamboo skewers then marinate for an hour or so in:
- 2 chopped cloves garlic
- olive oil
- 1 generous tablespoon country mustard
- 1/4 cup white wine
- a good handful of chopped herbs: rosemary, parsley, thyme–whatever you like/have on hand
I grilled mine on my panini press in about 5 minutes, but you could also broil these (remember to soak your skewers first so they don’t burn up!). They were a home run with both kids.
Ideally, you’d serve them with sweet potato fries. Topped with black salt.
