Chicken breast in Hoisin Sauce and Tomato sauce marinade. Healthy, moist and delicious twist of the usual marinade we use.
I am really loving this recipe because:
FIRST: the left over is still great after the next day
SECOND: the pineapple mixed with the sauce just have this great sour and sweet taste combination
THIRD: the pepper, its smell and its taste when it is grilled, it has smoky taste. Yum!
This Chicken BBQ is just best for me to cook right now and all of you who are fatigued from over work. This is FREEZEABLE and the marinade was from the Hoisin Tomato Sauce meatballs I posted awhile back. If you remembered, making that sauce took only 5 minutes.What I did this time was I sliced some chicken breast and put them into a zip loc. I poured the marinade in it and froze it. You know, just waiting for the right time for it to be skewered, cooked and grilled.
AND NOW IS THE TIME …
I am just too tired right now and grateful at the same time that finally, I am having a day off after working straight for 6 days. I am not sure why I am working this hard, but it dawned on me, I want that expensive pot and I need to work to get it…
When exhaustion gets the best of me, PRE – PREPARED FREEZEABLE MEALS like this one is a savior. High protein meal with “some” fruit and vegetables in it to give me a boost of energy. If you see me right now, I am looking like a zombie from overwork; yet, I need to prepare our meals. No words can describe how I am beating myself up; regretting why I had not trained my kids to cook -that time, my reason was justified: I do not want them to get burned or them burning the house; but at this moment, my thoughts is screaming at me, ” They cannot just be the eater of my meals while I am just too exhausted, they need to help me!!!!” Now, I do not care if they’ll burn the house… I really don’t care …
