*I am writing this on Thursday but I will publish it to cover my three days backlog on My 30 Day Writing Challenge. Gomenne.
I finally got the chance to cook some decent food, I’ve been eating out a lot recently so I decided to cook something plus Mondays are busy days so to keep me energetic and full the whole day, cooking is a good option rather than just eating convenience stores onigiri. I only have some potatoes and chicken in my fridge so I decided to just cook adobo. But I ran out of soy sauce, I only found out later when i was about to pour vinegar and soy sauce on it. I panicked and I decided to just google recipes on the internet and I found this Greek Chicken recipe.
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
- 2 lemons, juiced
- 1 (4 pound) chicken, cut into pieces
- In a glass dish, mix the olive oil, garlic, rosemary, thyme, oregano, and lemon juice. Place the chicken pieces in the mixture, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator 8 hours or overnight.
- Preheat grill for high heat.
- Lightly oil the grill grate. Place chicken on the grill, and discard the marinade. Cook chicken pieces up to 15 minutes per side, until juices run clear. Smaller pieces will not take as long.
I didn’t follow the directions stated above, unfortunately I don’t have an oven at the moment so what I did is just cook it on the stove, I put an extra 1/2 cup of water after I stir fried the chicken and put all the ingredients.
I ate some for brunch I really loved it, I wasn’t so sure of what would it taste like because I haven’t tried cooking any Greek recipe before but I do love it. I brought some at school for dinner and ate it with a cod roe soup pasta I bought from 7/11.
This is going to be my first recipe review and living alone in a foreign country really forces me not just to learn the basic of cooking but also hundreds of ways how to cook adobo, nialag and tsamba recipes I learned when I was in college.
Have you tried cooking something you haven’t done before and ended up being your favorite recipe? What is it?
