What time is it for you guys at the moment? It's 12:30pm here. Guessing where Prochain is it's pretty early.


Cheers for the instructions JJR. I'm going to try that myself.

This is last nights meal. So good and easy. It's not on russo's level but it made me and my gf happy and it's pretty healthy aside from a little extra sodium

Take about 2 lbs of chicken and add 1 package of 40% less sodium taco seasoning to a zip lock bag and shake to coat the chicken. Toss in a pan with non stick coating and cook on 375 for about 25 minutes then add salsa to the top of the chicken and cook another 5 minutes. My new thermometer made it very easy to tell if it was done.

In a skillet add some olive oil, 1 small onion and cook for a few minutes until soft, then add a can of corn, can of black beans, a tomato, and an avocado and lime juice and just heat until it's warm.

Since this is the left overs from last night some of the avacado turned brown and i covered the chicken lol. Hopefully you get the idea. If you like mexican food you would probably love this.

Sorry for the crappy pic, I'm not sure why it's turned on its side.

don't give me that "not on russo level" bullshit... that recipe sounds awesome... ya i cook a mean steak, but its not "fancy" one bit... you are right there with me my friend, i'm gonna try that chicken dish

idk whenever i cook, i always try to fancy up a dish as I make it.. i never "think" about how i am going to present a dish, it sort of just comes together when I cook it

Thanks bud... um, surprisingly no i haven't lol... i have had plenty of tapenade in sandwiches however never like that gotta try it out

Anytime bud... go take a look at the threads i made in the food forum, keep you busy for a couple weeks lol

Just remember... keep the steaks room temp and dry, don't be shy with the salt, high heat, few tbsp of oil, sear the steaks... don't touch them until they release from the pan (stainless steel)... it will stick until the searing is done... flip, repeat process... add some oil if the oil starts turning brown, done... finish in the oven, let sit for at least 5 minutes... and enjoy... best results when you keep the steak elevated after searing... baking rack or roll up some aluminum foil and make a stand

very very very simple

I didn't see the pic either. Last night I made tangy ranch grilled chicken that was amazing! I actually got it off the back of the mustard container, haha.

The recipe

2/3 cups ranch
1/3 cups mustard
1/4 cup brown sugar
4 chicken breasts

I added:
tablespoon of cayenne pepper
tablespoon of garlic powder
couple shakes of onion powder
couple shakes of mustard powder

Pour about 1/3 of the mixture over the chicken and let marinate in the fridge for a couple hours. Grill the chicken and in the last couple minutes started lathering with some of the leftover sauce(not the marinade).Finished with a Sam Adams Nobel Pils It is a damn good recipe to be so simple, and I have enough marinade to try it on some grilled chicken wings tonight

Are you using Picasa through Gmail? Those links they give you don't work but if you right click, copy URL and then paste with the [IMG][/ IMG] I noticed that worked.

This makes me not even care about bread crumbs anymore. This chicken is so good. I already had two other friends make it and I cooked it for 4 people last night. They all loved it.

very very very simple
I think keeping them dry is my problem. I didn't know to do that. How early do you salt the steaks? Does it not start drying the steak out? Think I'm going to pick up some steak on the way home tonight and try your recipe

that looks good but it looks like it is so dry and the bread/steak ratio seems kind of high

That had a fair size fillet steak in it. I think it's just the photo that makes it look a bit meager. There's also a fair bit of horseradish sauce under the salad to 'moisten' it up a bit. I used too much horseradish though and it gave too much of a kick.

I think next time I'll make more salsa to go on top though
