Coconut Jerk Chicken
Well, this is my second dish ever! I’ve never had jerk chicken, so I don’t know exactly what it’s supposed to taste like.
But it’s delicious, and I’m surprised I made something like this!
Things I learned:
1. Butternut squash. No idea.
2. Form the plan of attack carefully. I read through the recipe once, but not so thoroughly, and ended up taking a bit longer getting everything together in the actual cooking stage.
3. Have faith that the chicken will cook thoroughly in the end. Probably needed to make smaller chunks anyway.
I think the recipe is only okay at best. Not that I’ve had jerk chicken, but the coconut flavoring is extremely subtle, and the spices are well… there, but I really tend to expect MASSIVE FLAVOR EXPLOSION, and this one just kind of stands up a little bit just to get knocked down. Generally, I think people would find it mildly delicious, better-than-nothing nourishment, but if I went to a restaurant and ordered this I’d be a little upset.
You gotta realize, I spent almost my whole adult life eating take-out, and then finding the best take-out spots, and if I ordered this, I’d finish my food, but I wouldn’t go back.
What’s tomorrow? Dunno! Probably not a main entree, as these will both be sitting in my fridge!
