Friday Night Fun Food!

My whole family loves this meal!

OK. Granted this is a departure from our usual topics here at The Current. But, I just had to tell you about this. My wife, Pam, and I found this little grilling chicken pan on sale at Target. It is called a “non-stick deluxe vertical chicken cooker”. You can get one online for about $18. Anyhow, it does just what it says. It allows you to cook a chicken vertically on your outdoor grill. It comes with a “cone” to set the chicken on … or you can remove the cone and place a beverage can (soda, etc.) and draw out the flavor of your favor beverage into the chicken.

So, a couple of Fridays back … I tried this for the first time. Now, I don’t do most of the cooking at home. My wife and daughter are GREAT cooks. But, I do the grilling (should I bark now! :)   Anyhow, it was really easy. I cut up red potatoes, onions, bell peppers, and some garlic. Instead of a can, I used the cone and put some garlic and olive oil (a small amount; couple of tablespoons) in it. I spred the veggies around the bowl, cleaned the chicken and put it in place, then the cooking started. I cooked this on the grill for about 35 minutes.

The results? I have never had my family so thrilled over anything I have cooked before. So, here’s one to try. Back to other aspects of life, faith and the Christian walk next time, but I had to tell you about this. After all, fellowship, food and the table have a connection.

All this blogging has made me hungry!
