Sprite marinated chicken and coconut/lime sweet potatoes

Monday, 19 March 2012 10:15 by nico
One day, I was sipping a Sprite and I though '”mmmh, that would make a good marinade !”. I realized I wasn’t the only one who thought about that when I googled on “sprite marinated chicken” and found a lot of recipes. Ingredients For 300 g of chicken breasts Adapted from Diva’s Dinners 1/2 cup (125 ml) olive oil 1/2 cup (125 ml) soy sauce 1 cup (250 ml) Sprite 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon (or more) wasabi sauce (or wasibi/mustard/horseradish, as you like) Mix all the ingredients in a bowl (or ziplock bag), make sure all faces of the chicken breasts are exposed to the marinade and marinade from 1 to 3 hours then grill or sear the chicken (I cooked it inside as the weather was quite rotten) It caramelizes while cooking and tastes a bit like teriyaki chicken but with a lighter and fresher tone. As a side dish, you can cook some coconut/lime sweet potatoes Ingredients For 2 persons Adapted from Weber's Way To Grill by Jamie Purviance 4 medium-sized sweet potatoes 200 ml coconut milk The juice of 2 limes 1/2 tbsp cayenne pepper 2 tbsp brown sugar A pinch of salt Procedures Jump-start the sweet potatoes by cooking them in the microwave for 8 minutes (flip them after the first 4 minutes) Mix the coconut milk, lime juice, cayenne pepper, brown sugar and salt in a pan and let everything simmer at low heat Peel and dice the sweet potatoes Put the potatoes in the coconut/lime sauce Don’t dice the sweet potatoes in too small chunks, or their taste will be hidden by the coconut milk. My wife didn’t really like this recipe because she likes the taste of plain sweet potatoes but I enjoyed it (be careful though, it could become a bit queasy if you eat too much of it)

Smoked chicken thighs with Dimples BBQ Sauce

Wednesday, 16 November 2011 22:36 by nico
Here’s the recipe of the smoked chicken thighs I cooked  for the Dimples BBQ Sauce review on BBQ Sauce Reviews. The original recipe comes from the cookbook Weber’s Way to Grill (“La Bible du barbecue Weber” in French) by Jamie Purviance but I used Dimples instead of the homemade sauce of the recipe. Ingredients for 2 persons: 2 chicken thighs split in two (drumstick and upper thigh) Dimples BBQ Sauce 4 medium chunks of wood (I used oak and beech) For the rub: 2 teaspoons kosher salt 4 teaspoons paprika 4 teaspoons Santa Maria BBQ & Grill Mesquite Procedure: Prepare the rub by mixing all the ingredients in a bowl, rub the chicken drumstick and thighs and let them come to room temperature for 20 minutes while you start the grill for direct and indirect grilling at medium heat (around 200 °C). Put the wood chunks in a bowl of water for 20 minutes. Put the meat on the grill (direct grilling with the upper lid closed) for 8 minutes and turn them over from time to time. Move the meat on the cooking grate for an indirect grilling during 20 minutes (upper lid closed) and put the wood chunks on hot coals. Baste the meat with Dimples BBQ Sauce, continue the indirect grilling for 10 minutes and turn the meat over from times to times. Serve with some more sauce !   Our cat went completely crazy when she smelled the smoked chicken ! She ate all the leftovers and, as you can see, she put sauce all over.
