I know this is yet another chicken recipe...I still have an abundance of them, but... I just had to share...
Christmas came a wee bit early in this house the other day. I am having a lot of fun with my new toy...
I have been looking at this baby for about 3 years now, and finally it went on sale, so could not pass it by. So far I have only used this machine twice, but I am loving it. My other food processor was a 22 year old Moulinex, still in good working order, however, it's bowl capacity was only four cups. This one has 12. This machine can even grind up meat - beef, chicken, turkey - can hardly wait to try that out. It also has a shredding attachment that offers a medium shred on one side, and a smaller shred on the other side. Plus, the slicing attachment offers 6 different options for slicing thickness - how great is that? It also comes with a small bowl and blade, as well as a large bowl and blade, and both bowls are clearly marked in cups.
This food processor comes with a comprehensive user guide which also includes a number of recipes, and a great demonstration DVD. Plus the motor has a 10 year warranty! I am in love, total love. Oh, I almost forgot - this machine is way quieter than my old one - whooo hooo!
Now onto the recipe - I used the food processor to test this recipe out, but you could certainly do everything with a box grater or micro plane grater. This marinade would be lovely with beef or fish such as salmon or halibut too.
4-6 chicken thighs and drumsticks
1/2 of a large lime
2 Tblsp. Tamari Sauce
1/4 of an onion (cut into thirds)
1 large garlic clove
1 inch piece of fresh ginger
1/2 Tblsp. of Toasted Sesame Oil
If using a food processor, add all the ingredients and whiz up - this only took about 1 minute or 2.
Spread evenly over your chicken pieces, and refrigerate, marinating 8-10 hours.
We cooked ours on the BBQ, but if using the oven, bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Enjoy... I am heading back to the kitchen to play with my new toy! 🙂
Question: Do you have any tips using a food processor for your favorite recipes?
