Grilled Chicken Skewers
The chicken marinated overnight in a mixture of soy sauce (1/2 cup), fresh ginger (2 TB), minced garlic (2 large cloves), lime juice (1 lime) and brown sugar (2 TB). I won't marinate the chicken overnight again, just a few hours is enough. The flavor is pretty tasty though. The amounts of the marinade are not exact, but what I did this time around.
I thought I had shared my recipe for the sauted green beans, but I don't think I have...sad. So blanch the green beans. Then in a hot skillet saute some shallots in olive oil and butter, about 1 TB of each. Then add the blanched green beans and saute for about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste...delish. It's my new favorite way to have green beans. I've made them a bunch in the past few months, so I'm surprised I haven't posted the recipe before. If anyone can find it, I'll give you princess points.
PS...it was too darn hot. I couldn't bear to stand outside over a screaming hot grill in the heat and humidity tonight. So, dug out the grill pan! Woohoo.
