Watch out! Katie is in the kitchen. My cooking style seems to have landed somewhere between dorm room cuisine and Food Network fan. To eat well during the week, I need to cook on the weekend. Today’s preparations were inspired by fellow bloggers and Dr. Oz.
I spiced up some chicken (thank you Celtichippie for the spice inspiration) with smoked paprika, roasted ginger, and used grinders for sea salt with garlic and peppercorn medley. I cooked them in aluminum foil pockets to avoid using oils. I tend to cook the daylight out of chicken and this method keeps it moist. I will, most likely, add the chicken to salads during the week for lunch.
My second preparation of the day was cinnamon covered apple slices. I think I saw this on Dr. Oz last Monday and I had been on the look out for spice ideas thanks to God’s Healing Plants‘ great information about cinnamon. I cleaned and sliced an apple, added a light coat of lemon, and then poured on the cinnamon. The cinnamon is a little heavy in the photo but spice how you like. I am hoping the lemon will make it last through two days. Not likely, but I can hope.
