You know when you’re invited to someone’s house for dinner and the meal is just so good that you have to have the recipe? This was such a meal for my family. Back in June, we were over at my in-law’s house because I was going to meet one of my husbands cousins who he hasn’t seen since he was a wee little boy. June is a crazy time for my in-laws and us because our family from Africa comes into town and we spend pretty much every night there. I enjoy seeing my husband’s family and enjoying the perk of getting out of dinner ;)
On this particular night, my sister in law who is quite the little master in the kitchen for being only 15 yrs old, made dinner. She made Polynesian Chicken. Have you ever had it? Oh my, it’s so good. It was so good in fact several people went back for seconds and by the time my hubby and I finished eating, any leftovers that existed were gone. I could tell Josh really enjoyed the meal so I inquired to my sister, what she used. Now…not all cooks are a like. Jewelissa is more of the Rachael Ray type in seeing as though…she doesn’t really measure. She has this gift of throwing things together and it tasting amazing. I do not have such a gift. I’m more of the Paula Deen type, ( not that I would ever compare myself to her…she is a goddess in the kitchen) I have to measure everything…perfectly! I blame it on my OCD tendencies. So after getting the gist of the recipe and remembering somewhere far away my other sister in law asking about this same meal and I heard it was an Uncle Ben recipe…I zipped on over to dear old Uncle Ben and found the recipe there.
So last week, I went ahead and decided to make the dinner.
