Chicken Fever!

If you love chicken, then this is for you! I have come up with two chicken recipes for your tasting. 1. Hot and very spicy chicken for grilling, stove-top grilling, or pan-searing. 2. A sweet and savory glaze to dress the chicken with after cooking it (this glaze is commonly used on steak, but I think it'll work with chicken as well.)

Chicken Caliente
  • 2 boneless chicken breast
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp Accent flavor enchancer
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • a pinch of butter to oil the stove-top grill pan
  1. Oil the grill pan with the butter; set temperature to med-high.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients; spread evenly on the chicken (front and back) and let sit until the rub looks wet.
  3. Place the chicken in the pan and cook for 6 minutes on each side.

Shredded Chicken w/Balsamic Glaze
  • 1 boneless chicken breast
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  1. Heat oil in fry pan.
  2. Season chicken and fry it for 6 minutes on each side; set aside and keep warm.
  3. In a saucepan, bring the vinegar to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook until its reduce to 1/4 cup (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat.
  4. Take the finished chicken and begin shredding it to pieces.
  5. Place the shredded chicken in a small plate and pour or drizzle the balsamic glaze on top.
Eat.Live.Be happy!
