Grilled Ina Garten’s Butterflied Chicken last night. Excellent. Except my chicken was not butterflied as I had requested at the Wegman’s meat counter, it was “butchered” by the butcher who didn’t know how to debone and butterfly a chicken. Argh. But he did apologise and I forgave him tonight after tasting this excellent dish. I added 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard and 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar to Ina’s marinade, just because I was craving something mustardy and balsamic-y. Also did not have one hour to marinate and grilled immediately after adding the seasonings and it was still so flavorful. Served the chicken along side some fresh strawberries and Cucumber Salad, using up the leftover Donair sauce. My family ate the entire 2 pounds of strawberries, the entire cucumber salad, and all but a thigh of a whole chicken. This was quite an accomplishment for my gang. Wow this meal was a winner. Or we just worked up a big appetite planting flowers and herbs in honor of Earth Day and our Creator.
