Barbequed Rosemary-Orange Chicken Breasts
1 package of boneless skinless chicken breasts (about six)
1 can of mandarin oranges in light syrup
1 tablespoon of finely chopped rosemary
1 clove of garlic, finely minced
1/4 cup of apple cider or red wine vinegar
1/4 cup of olive or vegetable oil
Salt to taste: about 1/4 teaspoon
Take the chicken breasts and place them into a gallon size freezer bag. Add the rest of the ingredients into the bag and seal. Move the chicken around in the bag until it is sitting in a homogenous mixture. Place the bag into a large bowl and leave in the refridgerator for 30 to 60 minutes. Remove from the fridge and take to the barbeque. Turn on half of the grill and leave the other off. Grill, on high, on each side for about a minute, or until both sides are a crisp golden brown. Then move to the unlit side of the grill and cook until the chicken is cooked all the way through, about 20 minutes.
Hamburger Ideas & Tips
As an experiment, I once fixed something hamburgery for 12 days in a row, wondering how long it would take my family to complain. Well, I still don't know how long it would take them to complain, because they were happy every night.
- Stay close to your BBQ - overdone hamburger is a disappointment
- Stuff it with something - tomatoes, cheese, bacon bits - be creative!
- Create "hamburger cups": Form the hamburger into a cup shape, and fill with corn, green beans, bell pepper, tomatoes. Top with more hamburger meat, creating a seam and enclosing the veggies. Wrap in foil, and cook until the hamburger is cooked. Add cheese to the top if you like. Can also fill with already cooked macaroni and cheese.
- After you've turned it from the first side, and it's almost done, add a couple of sprinkles of gorgonzola cheese to the top and cover with a slice of cheddar cheese. As soon as the cheese melts, take it off the grill and eat!
- Think of different toppings besides ketchup and mustard. Pineapple slices and teriaki sauce; sauteed mushrooms, sour cream and swiss cheese; avocados and provolone cheese; blue cheese, gargonzola, parmesan. Green chilis and jack cheese. Bacon is always good, as is BBQ sauce. And chili!
- Try different breads - croissants; onion rolls, biscuits, sour dough, pumpernickel.
- Here's a quick skillet idea: Brown your hamburger with chopped green onions and minced garlic. Add salt and pepper. When the meat is almost browned, add a couple of eggs, stir thoroughly until the eggs are mixed in and cooked. (Add in enough eggs so that the meat and the yellow eggs can be seen separately.) Serve as is, or top with sliced tomatoes, cheese, mushrooms.
- Tired of burgers? Don't forget soups, chilis, spaghetti sauces, lasagne and salads.
