I changed things up a bit for Sunday Night dinner tonight and made two recipes I've never made before. Not only that, but the third recipe was one that I'd made only one other time. All combined, this was a risk. But it was a risk I was willing to take!
I've said it before, and I'm sure I'll say it again, but I'm ALWAYS looking for new chicken recipes. Why is this? Well...because I eat chicken so often and it's nice to mix things up! That's exactly what I did tonight when I made a recipe I've had saved on my computer for awhile.
Last night I prepared everything for the Red Chili Marinated Grilled Chicken before going to bed. It marinated overnight and until about 7PM this evening when I took it out right before grilling. While I didn't expect it to turn out the way it did, I was very happy with the end result. I thought it was going to be more of a spicy Mexican dish, but it ended up having more of an Indian food taste.
It's probably better that it tasted more like Indian food because I made a Herbed Basmati Rice as a side. This is the one dish out of the three I'd made before, so I'm not sure why I originally decided to make it with something I thought would taste like Mexican food...
The Food Gods must have known it would turn out to be an Indian Food tasting dinner!
To round out the dinner, I made Brussels Sprouts with Lemon and Garlic. I love Brussels Spouts, but I've only made them one way before tonight. This one was so good it will be made again!
Sooooooo did my risk pay off?
Yes! Making two recipes I've never made before paid off 100%!!!
