Black Bean Chicken

Black Bean Drumsticks

Black Bean Drumsticks

Black Bean Chicken offers a really unique taste from a very simple marinade.   You can find these pungent, fermented Beans at oriental grocers or in the international section of your big chain stores.  Both brands below are under 4 bucks.  A little goes a long way.

Sambal Chicken Skewers

This Bon Appetit recipe has only 7 ingredients.  Easy Peasy marinade. If you don’t have time to de-bone dark meat and barbecue, quickly cut up chicken breasts and broil.  See my Sambal Chicken Skewers PDF for all substitutions.

Caution:  The reduced marinade may be too hot to handle for some.  My teen diluted hers with Coconut Milk.

Thai Chicken Saute

Sometimes you get tired of the same ol’, same ol’ chicken. This Thai Chicken Saute recipe is “safe”. My fussy teenager was asking me when I was going to make it again so I know it’s not too spicy or “weird”. The PDF includes the Yummly recipe reviewer recommendations to “kick it up a notch” and brighten up the plating.
