We have moved many times the past few years. Every time we move, we either throw or give some of our belongings away because we couldn’t haul all our stuff. The biggest storage you can get is 10′ x 10′ and you’re fortunate if one is available when you need it. If you have a three bedroom home, where are you going to put all your belongings? Besides, it’s quite expensive to rent a storage space. That’s what happened to our barbecue grill. We had to give it away when we moved because there wasn’t any room left in the storage. My husband did not care to keep it because it was old, but I would have still keep it.
We haven’t eaten barbecue food in a while and I wanted to cook some barbecue chicken or steak for my family. I normally check in the fridge for fresh herbs or look in my spice rack before I prepare a meal. As soon as I find what I’m looking for, every thing just flows together. I know exactly what to prepare to complement the entree.
Well, who says you can’t have barbecue unless you have a grill? I tried this barbecue chicken in a skillet the other night and I had an unbelievable compliments from my family. My youngest said that it was an awesome chicken! My hubby said, the chicken was excellent. It was very moist, tender and tasty. And the couscous with strawberry-mango salsa complemented the chicken very well. They all finished everything that was on their plates. My youngest doesn’t like couscous, but he ate all the couscous and he asked if he could have more chicken. We had no leftovers. Well, need I say more?
