- Throwdown's Country Captain Chicken
- Roasted Red Onions with Pomegranate, Orange, and Parsley Gremolata
I still don't know what exactly country captain chicken means, but based on the recipe we used I'm assuming it means something yummy and delicious! The curry mix was a little annoying to make in the recipe because you had to grind a lot of spices, but I thought it was worth it. I also used boneless chicken breast (on sale!) cut into bite size pieces because Al likes easy-to-eat meals. I was really surprised by just how tender the meat became when it finished baking in the oven! The coconut rice was also really good, and it just makes me sad that the coconut milk has to add fat to our meal. (Again, worth it). I will definitely make coconut rice again for any other curry-like dishes.
The red onions had a wonderful sweet flavor from the pomegranate molasses. Now that I finally bought a jar of pomegranate molasses, I can't wait to go back and look for recipes that I've skipped over in the past since I never felt like buying it. In my opinion, the gremolata did not enhance the dish at all (I think it was the orange zest) and I would rather just sprinke some parsley and fresh pomegranate seeds over the onions instead.
