Ectasy Delight Chicken and 'Pookie' pasta

So aptly named by tonight's guinea pigs. :) I love my guinea pigs... really I do. and apparently this gets the approval of the resident people food hating cat Poe.

So for ecstasy delight chicken here's what you'll need. (this was one of those last minute throw things together meals so bare with me)

  • Some variant of General Tsao's sauce
  • Some Variant of Sesame Garlic sauce
  • Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • and Lime Juice you know the kind that comes out of a green plastic lime :)
  • Oh yeah... and chicken, chicken is useful to make chicken.

Now here's what you do.

  • Take your chicken and defrost it (my recipes have been easy lately,and it makes me feel lazy so yeah, i might use 'filler' steps)
  • Mix all the sauces, dressings, and juices in a bowl.
  • Place chicken in some sort of pan one with sides of course
  • Pour mixture over chicken and place in an oven preheated to 355 for 45 minutes to an hour.
there you go...

hmmm still seems pretty short and sweet to me :(

for the 'pookie' pasta (so named for a phrase from the csi plaing in the background) you'll need:

  • Pasta! (i used a tomato spinach tri color pasta.)
  • Milk
  • Flour and Butter
  • Basil, bay leaves, thyme, lemon pepper, and parsley (all my spices are dried and chopped so... use your best judgment)
  • chicken stock
what to do:

  • prepare your pasta
  • make a melt your butter and whisk it with the flour to make a roux, when then stir in the milk to make the base of your sauce.
  • toss in your spices (i eyeballed... i always do i'm so sorry but i probably used about 1/2 tablespoon of each, maybe 1 tablespoon of lemon pepper)
  • Mix the sauce with your drained pasta and if you need to thin the sauce out more use a bit of chicken stock.
plate and enjoy... YUM!
