“Grandmother’s” Chicken

I’ve been debating since I started this blog if I should share this recipe. Why? Because it’s the type of ‘Good-Housekeeping-Sandra-Lee-semi-home-made” recipe that I hesitate to admit I love. Let’s face it no one REALLY reads this blog (yet?) and other than my family and friends (that I generously bribe), no one really gives a rat’s ass what I have to say. I’ve got nothing to lose so here goes.¬†

You know those fruit preserves with the iconic wide mouthed jar and gingham patterned lid that can be found in any supermarket? Bonne Maman?

Well, my friends I am here to tell you that other than using those preserves for a kick ass peanut butter and jelly sandwich and saving the empty jars to stash your weed in the freezer, you can make a delicous, quick, savory, weeknight, family and dinner guest friendly chicken dinner. I’m calling it ‘Your Grandmother’s Chicken” because according to their website¬†that’s what Bonne Maman means in French.

Not only can you find great recipes on Flycakes, but learn another language too!

“Grandmother’s Chicken”
4 boneless chicken breasts
6 tbs Bonne Maman apricot jam (do NOT substite with another brand; it just won’t work)
1 clove garlic
1 tbs olive oil (use a lemon infused olive oil if you have it)
Juice of half lemon
1/2 cup of low sodium gluten free tamari or low sodium soy sauce

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.

Pour over chicken and marinate for 30 minutes ONLY if have time. Otherwise do not bother.

Broil or grill.

Serve over or next to rice or couscous to soak up the delicious sweet-savory sauce.

So lowbrow, so easy, so delicious.
Enjoy and always let your taste buds soar!
Hugs,
Maria
