Welcome To The Bitchery

Dinner tonight

Inspired by Pyrax yesterday, I’m making jerk chicken and coconut rice, and it smells AMAZING.

My recipe probably wouldn’t pass any sort of authenticity test. But, I had to make do with what I had available, and hopefully it tastes as good as it smells (I’m waiting for the rice to finish cooking right now)

I used my food processor and mixed together some molasses, a splash of red wine vinegar, green onions, lots of garlic, a jalapeno (my scotch bonnet plant hasn’t made me any peppers yet), some ghost chili powder, allspice, cinnamon, cloves, grapeseed oil, and about an inch of ginger. I put that over boneless skinless chicken thighs (they were the only thighs my store had), let it marinate for about 6 hours, baked it in the oven at 375° until the chicken was cooked (I don’t have a grill), and then broiled it to blacken it a little.

The coconut rice was just jasmine rice, a can of coconut milk, a cup of water, more garlic, and some peas.

I feel so fancy tonight. It’s been a while since I did “real” cooking.

ETA: DELICIOUS! Though next time I’ll go even heavier on the spices. And, I’m thinking of using leftover chicken for pizza tomorrow. What kind of sauce would go well with it?
