I am back to cooking again! After a long hiatus of simply being too lazy, it feels so good getting back in the kitchen and eating healthy homemade meals. Also, going to Dominican Republic for my Bestie's Wedding in less than 2 weeks is motivation enough, but adding no working-out to the mix (because of having my Appendix removed) doesn't help. However, both reasons are giving me great excuses to start doing something I love again! And this meal was definitely a great reminder why I love to cook so much! To say this meal was flavorful doesn't even do it justice. This was possibly the best Chicken I have ever tasted and to think I made it and it was so easy puts a massive smile on my face, and a happy Boyfriend to-boot! The Chicken was so juicy and the Marinade was tasted throughout, then paired perfectly with the 'sauced-up' (if you may) Broccoli, it makes my mouth water just thinking about it! You NEED to make this for Dinner, like this week!
