I haven't deserted you all. I promise. It has just been a crazy two weeks in the Jones household and something had to take a back seat, so I'm afraid it was you. I hope you will forgive me.
Between the continuing battle with lice and the beginning of cake season (aka graduations and weddings), I have had zero time to myself.
And just to prove how completely insane I am, I decided to build myself a picnic table from some plans I found on the internet. Great idea, lousy timing.
I was tired of trying to cram my large family of 8 around our tiny little patio set for 4. I am so happy with the end result and it was actually a lot of fun to build. I just should have waited a few weeks when I wasn't covered in buttercream frosting to do it.
Thai Grilled Chicken
6 chicken breasts
2 cloves garlic
1/2 C cilantro
2 Tb fish sauce
1 Tb sesame oil
2 Tb sugar or sugar substitute *I prefer Truvia
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1. Combine all the ingredients in a large ziplock bag. Allow to marinade for 4-8 hours.
2. Preheat grill to high. Remove excess marinade and place chicken on the grill. Lower the heat to medium-low. Grill for 5 minutes on the first side, then turn and grill 3-5 minutes on the second side, depending on the thickness of your chicken. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
