Recipe: Chicken Nadienne Tricolore

Chicken breast is a good, all around healthy piece of meat than probably anything that’s not fish. It’s very low maintenance and this recipe is quick, healthy, and the meat comes out juicy and tender and really, really, good. Did I tell you that the breast comes out really, really, moist? Because it would be a crime if I didn’t.

Anyways, all you need:

Chicken breast
Tomatoes, diced for this recipe but there are many ways you can cut them.
Lemon juice, from about one medium lemon. 63-67 g to be exact.
Parsley, chopped
Onion, diced this time but can be another cut as well.
Green pepper, diced
Garlic, minced
Ginger, minced
Cooking oil, used olive oil but can use any
vinegar, any
Sea salt
Oregano, dried
Rosemary, dried
Segen Sauce

Step 1: Prepare Chicken Breasts

Cut checkerboard pattern on top of chicken breasts. Make sure not to go all the way through. The key is to create a wider cooking surface and allow for moisture (and flavor) to go inside the meat.

Step 2: Prepare Marinade

Use oil, lemon juice, vinegar, sea salt, oregano, rosemary, and Segen Sauce. Mix well and add in chicken breast. Let marinade for ~30 minutes. To be safe, marinade in refrigerator.

Step 3: Prepare Everything Else

See why “tricolore?” Oh, look, an extra lemon…maybe margarita time? Add fresh lemon juice to any margarita and thank me later. Anyways, before we get sidetracked…

Step 4: Heat Oil on Skillet

Add just enough oil to coat the bottom of a skillet and heat before you add the chicken. You don’t want the skillet smoking, but you want the meat to sear quickly. Add the chicken and sear each side for about 2 minutes per side.

Step 5: Put Rest of Ingredients in Marinade

While the breasts are getting done, put the tomatoes, onions, green peppers, garlic, parsley, and ginger (henceforth known as toppings) in marinade the meat was in.

Step 6: Put Toppings on Chicken Breasts

After the chicken has a nice brown color, turn the cut side up, and turn off stove but leave on stovetop. Add toppings and any marinade that might be left on top. As the chicken breast cooks, it looses moisture. The same happens to the toppings. When the latter happens, the moisture and the flavors seep down into the chicken breast.

Step 7: Put in Preheated oven

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and put skillet in.  Leave it in there for about 12 minutes per pound of meat. Toppings shouldn’t be burned or cooked through when you take it out. For this recipe, it stayed in the oven for 30 minutes.

Step 8: Let Sit for 3-5 Minutes

Step 9: Enjoy

Enjoy with dijon mustard (or your favorite mustard) and Segen Sauce.

Chicken Nadienne Tricolore

There are many ways of preparing toppings for a chicken nadienne tricolore but the goal is for the chicken breast to come out really moist and filled with magical flavors using red, white, and green ingredients. My favorite actually involves a salsa made with onions, tomatoes, the marinade, green onions, parsley, cilantro, and celery. Buon Appetito!!!

Why Hot Sauce Is The Perfect Present For This Valentine’s Day

Today is February 14th…a day set aside for lovers. Most Casanovas will opt for flowers and chocolate and fancy dinners and such, but there are credible reasons why hot sauce should be their go-to present if they really want to make an impression. Here’s why:

      1. Be Different…Be Special


Think about how many other people are giving their lovers flowers and chocolate. They picked you because you’re different and that’s what makes you special, so why are you going with the herd and getting them the same thing everyone else is giving theirs? Show them you think outside the box and they will love and appreciate you even more.

      2. Spice Things Up


Don’t be the guy who gets accused of never spicing things up. Hot Sauce is virtually THE thing to spice up anything…there is absolutely no limits to what hot sauce can spice up so grab a bottle and watch you be the envy of everyone who gave the usual boring flowers and candy.

      3. Show Your Sensitive Side

It’s been proven that a little sensitivity goes a long way. Put a little more than you can normally handle and watch as you reap the returns. As a bonus, let them pick a movie and put some hot sauce on your side of the popcorn bowl and you’ll score major points.

      4. Give a Gift That Lasts

Flowers wilt within days. Chocolate goes bad after a few weeks. Hot sauce lasts for years. You can spice things for her even when Valentine’s Day is long gone. Same as showing her your sensitive side. Just don’t overdo that last one…or overdo it, it’s your life and you can cry whenever you want to.

      5. Give a Gift with Versatility

The versatility of hot sauce is unimaginable, especially if you’re about to land in the doghouse. Need to show how sorry you are, eat a teaspoonful and watch the tears and running nose do most of the work for you. Those flowers and chocolate you gave last Valentine’s Day won’t do that for you. You might need to buy new ones but even that isn’t guaranteed. Nothing says “I’m really sorry” than tears and sniffles, and hot sauce has your back on that. You can also use it to make a spicy morning adult beverage later on. Don’t want to share your food? Sprinkle on there. Want protection against bears when you go on a romantic hike? Okay, maybe it won’t protect against bears but it will do the other stuff.

     6. It Won’t Break Your Bank

Flowers and candy are too expensive to give every week let alone every day. Not so with hot sauce. You can use the money you saved to book that romantic getaway, buy the house of your dreams, and do other stuff you’ve always wanted to do as a couple.

     7. It’s Healthy

Some people are allergic to flowers. Chocolate will add a few inches to waists. Hot sauce can be healthy and can help get rid of those inches. Just remember to choose one that’s made from natural ingredients.

      8. It’s Memorable

Years from today, they will remember the Valentine’s Day you gave them hot sauce, and it will be a fond memory. They might even ask you why you never kept up your creativity, but we’re not worried about you if you’re creative enough to go for the hot sauce…we know you know how to keep things spiced up.

So, you be the judge, and, whatever you reach for today, we wish you all a happy lovers’ day.
