Chicken

I love to cook. I’m pretty decent- I’m still living with my parents and attending high school. I like to think I can cook better than both my parents and ESPECIALLY better than my two siblings.

Chicken is by far my favorite meat; this is because it goes so well with so many styles. I’m looking for some new suggestions in cooking.

With the aforesaid having been said, please post your favorite chicken recipe. Give a little insight on how it will taste, what it tastes like, how healthy* it is, etc. I personally love the taste of buffalo sauce, garlic, mesquite BBQ, and some others. I also love the taste of cheese, peppers, onions, etc. Thanks in advance!

now THIS is how you make a cheap, easy, and healty dinner. **PICS**

made a little ‘orange chicken’ stirfry last night. VERY simple.

take 2-3 boneless/skinless chicken breasts – cut ’em up into ~1" cubes. Marinate them with 2 tbsp rice wine, and 2 tbsp corn starch. let ’em marinate for 30 minutes.

sauce: ~1/2cup OJ, 2tbsp soy sauce, 1tsp sesame oil (yum), 2tsp brown sugar, 1tsp chili oil or flakes. I put a tbsp of corn starch in the sauce as well – really helps to thicken it up. If you like more orange flavor (this just has a hint of orange), put some orange marmelade in the sauce. that’ll really kick it up a notch

What Are You Reading??? v.New

I just finished The Sun Also Rises by Hemingway
I just picked up for whom the bell tolls
I also wanted to get Haunted by that fight club guy
The Sun Also Rises was great.

Just finished Haunted. I only found it mediocore. Maybe I was expecting too much. Some of the short stories were really well done, but the overall connecting story did nothing for me.

Rereading Huxley’s Brave New World at the moment.
Boy’s Life by Robert R. McCammon
