Day #65 - March 8, 2010 - BBQ chicken
Another dinner post...
Monday night I made BBQ chicken, roasted broccoli, and rice for dinner. I made this a few weeks ago after seeing a recipe in a cook book and John loved it, so we have added it to our regular menu :) I, however, didn't follow the recipe that we found. Instead, I called up my mom. I remember her always making BBQ chicken growing up and I new she had no fancy recipe. Guess how easy her recipe was? Chicken breasts and BBQ sauce; that's it. All you do is lay the chicken breasts in a baking dish and cover with a whole bottle of BBQ sauce of your choice and cook for 45 minutes to an hour. It soaks up all the BBQ sauce and turns out so moist.
And, because John decided to buy a new rice cooker, we have had rice nearly every night. I was mad that he bought it at first, because really? Did we need a rice cooker? NO! But, I'm glad he did now, because we have really gotten our moneys worth out of it, rice is cheap, and this is seriously the best rice I've ever had. Even better than the chinese take out place we frequent. This thing looks like it's straight out of Japan though. It's really tacky sitting on our counter, but too much of a hassle to put up and get it out every time we use it. And it plays this jazzy little tune when it's finished cooking the rice... ha. Maybe I'll make that contraption my picture of the day soon?! :)
