Hey SR... apricot chicken.

I'm making this a special thread, because SR has been bugging me for probably seven years or more to make this, and I finally did.

As far as I can tell, this is the first mention of the recipe in 2007, but it looks like the posts have archived, and I can't see anything earlier.

Mix everything together in mixing bowl. Pour over chicken. Bake 30 minute at 350 reduce to 250 for 1.5 hrs. Serve with plain white rice and green beens accompany this nicely.
So here it is, SR. Tasty stuff. I served with some basmati rice and green beans with a little bacon (because bacon). Honestly, one of the best chicken meals I've made in a long time. I made as instructed this time, and I'll do it again with my own twist.

I put some Yogurt and Tandoori paste on chicken breast earlier. Can't decide whether to let it marinate overnight, or cook it up later tonight.

yeah - fire it up tonight - over marinating is a growing problem in kitchens across America today.

A little Gates - Baby broccoli tossed in olive oil and oven roasted - that's a swell, relatively healthy meal. I'm becoming so simple and traditional as I age.

I turned leftovers apricot chicken into a pretty kickass stir fry.

The baby broccoli is a very flavorful side-item - I like to use a really pricey Olive-Oil. The greener the better.

So good for you.

I like a crisp glass of ice-water containing both Lemon and Lime slices. Again very simple. lol

It's more a function of my [lack of] hunger. I fixed another BLT and a decent salad earlier.

Depends on how many calories I expend during the US-POR game.

Sounds pretty good - I love BLT's.

I try to shoot for realistically 1700-1900 calories per day - I try to keep it close - sometimes I botch it -yet sometimes I come in under. So it really is a wash for the most part.

Do you have any smoothie you incorporate into you daily diet. Maybe protein....?

I have a really good one by Optimum Nutrition, It's Banana Cream powder - I use skim milk - most of the guys in the fitness thread mix with water, however they're much bigger and much more advanced than myself. I just like to stay lean - however I use the milk to add a few calories - I really could use to gain 3 or 4 more pounds of muscle. I THINK I'll get there eventually.

But currently I'm 6' 1" 179ish

Yeah, gotta watch the quality of olive oil--since 70% is being doctored with cheaper oils.

I saved that recipe once before but never made it. I'm gonna make it Tuesday.

I tend to look for 'easy' these days - I'm nothing like FMB! anymore - used to be somewhat like him. My technique is still solid though.

Your technique is likely better than mine. I've never had any kind of training or even time with someone that's been properly trained. I'm completely self taught, and because of that probably have some horrible habits.

well fine - but your creative edge is there - it's better than mine.

Yes I'm pretty good w/ the fundamentals - knife work and baking techniques. I struggle when I'm leaned on for creativity. I'm sure it's partially because I've been 'out of the game' somewhat, for a while now.

If you ever feel like working on that creative muscle and need some inspiration, check out The Flavor Bible. It's basically just a list of ingredients with their classic and more flavor combinations. I look to it pretty regularly to put together dishes.

There is a salad I've seen that calls for partial mixed/field greens, arugula, thinly sliced strawberries+feta cheese and balsamic dripped over w/ fresh olive oil and cracked black pepper and roasted pecans.

Apparently strawberry and feta cheese are amazing together.

Hm.. I'd be a bit wary of the salt in feta, as salt and strawberries is generally a bad combo. But I'd give it a go. Balsamic, strawberries, and black pepper is magical.

Goat cheese too. ( I have to use raspberries though) Pears and walnuts with goat cheese or gorgonzola cheese. Also a raspberry dressing on the same salad is good.
