Have you heard of the Kitchen Play Progressive Party Menu?
In a nutshell (from the Contest page at Kitchen Play):
Each Progressive Party at Kitchen Play features a giveaway designed to include as many bloggers in the fun as possible. To participate, simply recreate one of the original courses revealed that month and post about the experience on your own site. Variations, alterations and ingredient substitutions are allowed and encouraged. Only one recipe per entry is required (even if the original Kitchen Play post contains more than one).
Now, I love to participate because it forces me to make things that I normally would never even dream of making. I admit it, I'm in a menu-planning rut!
But, check out this yummy entree that I made just last night:
This was NOT my normal roast chicken. It was crunchy goodness on the outside and juicy deliciousness on the inside. The black bean relish on top was simply gourmet.
Here's a close up of the relish. See all the yummy Lindsay Black Olives?
The breading on the chicken is really great. I hate breading things because the breading normally falls off during the browning, but this stuck and had great taste! I was able to make it gluten-free by using gluten-free bread crumbs and brown rice flour instead of white flour. You really must try THIS recipe. Thanks Kitchen Play for another great menu!
