Siracha Lime Chicken

Chicken has always been a big part of mine and Eddie's Diet but it can getting boring sometimes . . . over the next few weeks I'll be sharing some new marinades and recipes I'm trying to mix things up a bit

Spicy Food has always been a favorite for me and Eddie yet we never really got into the Siracha Craze Everyone else is. I have had a bottle of Siracha style sauce in the fridge for a while that I used for copy cat San Tung Wings so when I kept seeing Siracha Lime coming up as a flavor profile on Pinterest I figured why not give it a try

Directions: 1) Place Chicken Breast in a Ziplock bag with a big squirt of siracha (i probably used about 1/2 cup for 3 breasts) 2) Quarter limes and squeeze lime over breasts and throw the rinds right into the bag too 3) Marinate over night and grill for 20 minutes per side over medium heat

Mo Bettahs at Home

Image
At work everyone loves getting Mo Bettahs for lunch. Its a little Hawaiian Joint that seems to be local to Utah with only a few in the state.

I took Eddie there for the first time and he was in LOVE! 
Their Teriyaki Chicken is definitely the best thing on the menu and the sauce is to dye for. Last visit I found out you can actually buy the sauce so I picked up a bottle and marinaded chicken in it over night then grilled it up (20 minutes each side over medium heat)  
Not as good as the original but definitely an awesome way to break the craving!

Homemade Wing Sauce

Image
Wings have always been one of mine and Eddie's favorite foods. Ironically our love for wings has grown together because neither of us really liked them before we started dating but a majority of our time together Wings have been a huge foodie component of our relationship and ever since have been on the search of the best wings and have to try them at every restaurant and bar we go to.

Since moving to Salt Lake we have always heard good things about Trolley Wing Company (TWC as we call them) but never went there until this year and since have been back once a week if not more. There wing sauce is super spicy and fresh and you can tell its made batch by batch rather than just sitting around in the back

Because of TWC I was inspired to kick my wing game up and create some wing sauces of my own based on our favorite flavors
