A Cure for my Craving

Hello Sweets,

I hope you all are having a wonderful Monday, unfortunately for me the theme for my day is migraine Monday :(.  I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the freezing cold wind, but I'm doing everything I can to help remedy the migraine and I think I'm doing a pretty good job.  I wanted to share with you guys my latest obsession, Cherry Craisins.  They are sooo yummy and good for you too!  I first tried them in a trail mix I bought (I didn't think I would like them), and I'm so glad I did, because you can never have too many healthy snack options right?
Happy girl with a yummy snack

So lately I've been craving chicken, like really really craving chicken lol, and I'm not sure why. Maybe it's because I haven't had it in a while?  So on my way home from my meeting today, I decided to stop in the grocery store and pick up some chicken to cure my cravings.  So then it got me thinking about flavors, how did I want to prep my chicken?  So when I got home I took inventory of my spices.  I knew I definitely wanted to use garlic and red chili flakes but I felt like I needed something more.  Then I opened open the fridge and it was like the kitchen angels started to sing, tandoori sauce was what caught my eye.  I haven't cooked with the tandoori flavor in a very long time, but it smelt too yummy to pass up, thus a new Canuckette recipe was born!

1)  Rub chicken breast with garlic and red pepper flakes, then smoother in tandoori.  Let marinade for a couple of hours in the fridge (overnight if you can).

2)  Preheat oven to broil, fill bottom of the broiling pan with water.  Cook for 13 minutes.

3)  Remove from oven and enjoy!
nice and juicy

This subtle spicy dinner definitely satisfied my chicken craving, and since I am one girl I have some leftovers for tomorrow :)  Is there something you've been craving lately?  Did you satisfy that craving, and with what?

While I was at the grocery store I picked up a couple of other mystery items.  The reason they are mystery items is because I am devising a new yummy recipe for tomorrow.  I want to make something subtly sweet with a hearty fall likeness to it.  But it will remain a secret until tomorrow, which means even more incentive to come back to my little blog :)  (sneaky sneaky)  Until next time.........

Stay sweet,

Jennifer xoxoxo
