July 6 - Chicken Enchiladas - a total throw together when I realized the mole sauce I had went bad!
July 7 - Greek-style Grilled Chicken & veggies
July 8 - Cobb Salad with leftover chicken
As I started typing out what I cooked these last few days I realized that it was all about chicken. That was not intentional or planned and while I often find chicken boring I think all of these dishes were tasty and worked well. Even the weird verde-ish enchiladas I made out of necessity when my other plan failed.
The winner was by far the Greek Grilled Chicken I made on Thursday. I't a Boby Flay recipe I decided to try out since I had the ingredients on hand and love the sound of the simple grilled whole chicken with grilled tomatoes & lemons all topped with a dijon vinaigrette.
This chicken was so good that my mouth is watering as I write this post. I am beyond bummed that I won't be able to make it again. It may look like a mess in a bowl, but to me this is the perfect summer meal, a huge bowl or platter filled with fresh veggies and meat that you just put on the table and people go at it picking what they want. I even threw some mache salad mix at the bottom of the bowl so it soaked up the chicken juice and the vinaigrette, making for an uber delicious salad at the bottom of the serving bowl. In retrospect I should have waited and made this when we were having people over for dinner.
