Lemon Chicken Legs / Wings

lemoncurdlegs

Great for Chicken or Turkey Legs, Wings, Breasts, etc.

Marinade (1 hr)(6 legs):
1-2T White Vinegar
2T (Pick ONE): McCormick’s Montreal Steak OR Tay’s Chick Rub

Sauce:
3T Lemon Juice (100% fridge kind)
1/4c Lemon Curd OR Pineapple Marmalade (I used Curd!)
1T Honey
1/4tsp Mustard Powder
1/8tsp Dried Mint
1/8tsp Curry Powder

Marinade Chicken. BEST ON CHARCOAL GRILL! Cook Chicken. Toss with Sauce.

Not grilling?: Marinade Chicken in Ziploc Bag, for 30minutes. Add 1/2T Olive Oil, toss around. Then, toss with 1/2T -1T Flour (I add half, toss. Add other half, toss.). Marinade another 30minutes in fridge. Butter Flavor Cooking Spray pan. Bake, uncovered, at about 425-450 for 18minutes, flip, bake another 12-18minutes, or til juices run clear. Toss with Sauce (Or brush on half way)
Charcoal Grilling Tip: We build a hill in center of grill. Light charcoal (We used Hickory Charcoal). Once coals are ashy grey, they are ready. Place on food, on outside of hill of charcoal. Prop Grill Open, using a Slightly crushed pop can. Chicken: Lay Chicken on outer part of grill (Outside hill). Once Chicken isn’t sticking to grate, so much, it’s ready to flip. Flip once, that’s it. Cook til Thermometer reads correct temp.

Mahalo! Hawaiian Pasta Salad – It’s Grindz!

hawaiianpasta1
A Spin Off from Our Hawaiian Sliders: Recipe Here

2c Uncooked Noodles of choice (I would’ve used Bow Tie, only had Mostaccioli)

1c uncooked Chicken Breasts, cubed largish
1c Ham Steak, diced (Mine was uncooked)
1/2c Lawry’s Hawaiian Marinade
1/2T Coconut Oil

1/2 Red Pepper
1/2 Green Pepper
1/2 Onion

Sauce:
1/2c Mayo
1/2c canned Crushed Pineapple (In juice), slight drain
1/8-1/4tsp Sea Salt
1/4tsp Paprika
1/4tsp Lemon Juice (Fridge Concentrate Kind)

Topping: Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Marinade Chicken and Ham for about 5 hours. Heat skillet with Coconut Oil. Add in marinaded Chicken and Ham. Cook til done. Set aside. Allow to cool.
Mix Sauce ingredients. Set in fridge, til use.
Boil Noodles (Noodle tip: Add in a LIL Oil and a pinch of salt while boiling. Helps noodles sticking.). I drain and rinse in cold water. DRAIN WELL!!!
Chop up Red Pepper, Green Pepper, and Onion.
Combine all together. Serve.
(When premaking for party… Keep in mind, noodles and chicken mix may eat up sauce. So, I always make a lil saucier. Add sauce no longer than 30 minutes prior to serving. Altering sauce amount (Like doubling) is up to your tastes.)

NOTES: I’m sure you can make a “Half the Flavor” pasta with skipping marinade… But, it’s SO TASTY with! And Cheap!
Photo of Prepping: 
hawaiianpasta2Healthier Option: Try Yogurt or Sour Cream in place of Mayo. Try over Coleslaw instead of noodles.
