The Next Network of Food Star!

Hey, I can dream can't I? In a prior post, I mentioned that keeping busy keeps me from smoking. I love to crochet and that has been helping, but I also love to cook. So today, day two of not smoking at all, I decided to make up my own recipe, just for fun. I wanted to keep my mind occupied and see what I could come up with. Here is what I made up, despite our pantry being scant at best. It's a marinade for chicken. Don't worry I made sure it turned out tasty before I posted it!

Kristin's Made-Up Marinade
(Measurements are, um, less then exact. Think Rachael Ray.)

1 cup(ish) - Apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup(ish) - Oil
Two to three good glugs - Worcester sauce (Wishter shister shighster sauce as my family calls it.)
Nice firm squeeze - Lime juice
Palmful - Chili power
Palmful and a half - Coriander
Pinch - Salt, Black pepper
Pinch plus a little - Cumin
A few good pinches - Paprika, red chili flakes, Cayenne pepper (Heat will develop during marinating, less is more.)
A good cereal spoon sized serving - Jalapenos (Again less is more.)
3-4 cloves - Garlic minced

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Pour mixture into zippy bag. Add fresh or defrosted chicken (not frozen), marinate for about 4 hours. Throw chicken on grill and enjoy!

So there you go, I think it turned out great and tasted quite yummy. Try it and let me know what you think!
