For some off and inexplicable reason, I find myself truly craving either soy sauce or barbecue sauce. I can’t explain it. It’s a weird craving to have. And since all I have in my freezer is chicken, that’s just what I’ll have to use them on. The odd thing is, that even when I’ve had one or the other… I still want it.
First I made almond soy sauce chicken. (I thought I had taken good pics of it, but it just didn’t seem to work out for me) And this was very good. I wondered why I didn’t slice up almonts more often and just dredge them in soy sauce and sesame seed oil more often. This I made with some ramen noodles. I think it would have come out better if I had had some scallions and onions and stuff to add to it, but my pantry was pretty bare when I made this. But it was still damn good.
Then I switched over and made some bbq chicken pizza. The premade pizza crust is always a handy thing to have around. I loaded it with cheese and tons of chicken. I use the Jack Daniel’s bbq sauce. It’s not too sweet and has a good tanginess to it. I’m very fond of it.
The following day I made soy sauce chicken wings. I let them slow cook in a pot and I wished I had had some brown sugar to sweeten it ever so slightly. But still, they were tender and good and seemingly hit the soy sauce spot.
Afterwards I grilled up some chicken breasts and again broke out the barbecue sauce. I had a very simple meal with just some corn on the cob.
Interesting how I spent 4 days going back and forth with these dinners.
Do any of you find yourself suddenly craving such flavors for several days?
