Decided to marinate these chicken breasts in teriyaki sauce, some brown sugar, soy sauce, chili oil and a few other things. I let it sit in the fridge in the marinade for a few days.
I cooked it up on the cast iron grill pan that I have and then let it rest and served it with some steamed rice and green beans that were cooked in some of the marinade of the chicken.
I used the marinade in the pan and cooked it down to great a glaze for the Grilled Glazed Teriyaki Chicken.

Decided to do an easier dish today. So I went with Lasagna. Browned the beef with some onions, bell pepper, garlic, ginger, salt, pepper and cayenne powder.
After that was all done I added the beef to the Bertolli Portobello Mushroom Sauce. Boiled the noodles and started layering everything together. A layer of beef and sauce went down then a layer of noodles, then a layer of ricotta cheese and mozzarella cheese and repeat till its all done. I covered the top with some of the beef and sauce mixture then some mozzarella and freshly grated parmesan cheese.
Put in the oven that has been preheated to 375° F for 30mins. The final product is shown below 🙂
Sorry for the lack of updates. I have some older stuff I am going to be posting soon as well. We made cajun chicken alfredo for dinner 🙂
So while we were in Key West after having a few horrible experiences eating out we decided you know what? The food we make is a ton better than what we are paying out the butt for, lets just go get good ingredients and make some good food. So we went for something simple since the suite we were in had a small kitchen and no oven it did have a stove top burners though (electric not gas =/). So this is what we ended up with for dinner and boy was it the best food we had on our entire trip.
So I had some chicken I marinated a few weeks ago that I defrosted a few days ago. Since I am going on vacation for a week or so I really don’t want to leave much in the house so I’ve just been cooking with what I already have. Anyway I didn’t want to bread the chicken, didn’t want to bake it really so I decided to use the cast iron grill pan to cook it and it turned out amazing. I then boiled up some fettuccine and some vegetables, I then grilled the vegetables in the pan that I had cooked the chicken in. Anywhere pics below 🙂
So we found these little tiny raviolis filled with basil pesto filling. Cooked them as per their instructions and them seasoned with some olive oil, black pepper and salt. Oh for the salt we used Fleur De Sel salt, which is a different type of sea salt it has a slightly smokey flavor to it.
Well since I had a bunch of chorizo and rice left over from the other night my girlfriend gave me the idea to add a poached egg to it. We did and it turned out great and not the same dish over again.
