Today’s recipe is the chicken and fried green tomato burger. A piece of chicken thigh, smothered in Sriracha and doused in flour then deep fried, placed on top of a fried green tomato, to make a crispy and succulent spicy chicken burger.
On a warm day, blueberry mango salsa is a great choice for a side dish. It’s fruity, spicy and can be conjured up in no time. All you have to do is combine mango with blueberries, add jalapeños, scallion and lime juice and et voilà!
If you’re like me, now that warmer weather is on the horizon, you will be more inclined to ditch the comfort food, laden with carbs, and instead enjoy a lighter perhaps more nutritious meal. Well, today’s recipe is a main course ideal for warmer days and nights – it’s snapper fillet with spicy mango sauce.
Today’s recipe is stewed spicy basil chicken. It’s a combination of Thai and Chinese flavors. It’s a wonderful dish and really difficult to walk away from. If you’re going to cook this dish, invite only one person to share it with you, as you might find that you will both want another serving.
Sweet and spicy coleslaw is a quick and easy salad that goes with so many meals. You can use any variety of the usual coleslaw ingredients if you like, but I used napa cabbage and radicchio. A great combination of flavors and gives great eye appeal.
I like carrots, but when they’re part of a holiday meal, I think they should have a little pizzazz. Hence the creation of escovitch carrots. It’s a sweet and sour side dish, which is so interesting alongside other holiday dishes.
The holiday season is full of high salt, high fat dishes, that applies girth and weight. Now, I’m not complaining, nor do I suggest you dispense with your favorite dishes. But if you are interested in adding something with minimal fat, but still packs a very tasty punch, try my curried turkey endive salad bites. They are delicious.
Sometimes, I just need a dinner for one. Something I can put together in minutes, but a meal that is still wonderfully tasty and nutritious. When those times come about, I make something just like this – spicy chicken with tomatoes and blueberries.
This dish is so easy to create. You just coat the chicken with sambal oelek, and then sprinkle with salt. Place the tomatoes and blueberries on a baking tray, then the chicken on top. Finally, bake in the oven until the chicken is crispy. That’s it!
