Cooking: week 2

September 15th, 2008

This week (which was actually last week, at this point) we tried a new marinade for our New Recipe of the Week. It was called Grilled Chipotle Marinated Chicken and I thought it sounded promising.

The verdict:

I have to agree with Cashew. I was a little disappointed. It wasn’t bad, but it isn’t something to add to our repertoire of frequent recipes. Next time we make it, we’ll divide the recipe by 1/4.

We gave it 3 1/2 stars (out of 5). Maybe 4. Cashew agrees.
