Right, now, my house smells glorious.

I made what I call "Chinesy Chicken." Like most of what I make, it's not authentic but it smells and should taste fine.

Simply put, I marinated a chicken cut up into eigths in a mixture of fresh ginger, fresh garlic, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil and a touch of light olive oil (I don't have a neutral flavored oil right now - things get wierd before Pesach.) Because of the soy sauce and the vinegar, this is not a dish I can make during Pesach.

Anyway, after an hour or so, I put it in a 450 oven and baked for 90 minutes. And the house just smells amazing. I'm serving it with rice and spinach.


Mmmm, that sounds good.

I use a similar mixture to marinate and then poach salmon, which I usually serve with sushi rice and with some kind of green (asparagus works and can be poached in the same liquid as the salmon, which then makes a lovely broth to drizzle over everything before serving).

Shabbat shalom!

My mouth waters.

That sounds yummylicious! That's the beauty of chicken - it's easy to prepare, there are so many ways to fix it, and then add in a starch and veggies and voila! meal!

Sounds delicious! Dad used to include chopped green onion with his. It otherwise sounds very near to the (authentic) recipe that his grad student friends taught us.
