Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Big Green Egg - Let the adventure begin.

Hubby has wanted a Big Green Egg (BGE) for years.  We have a perfectly good gas grill, and adding just a smoker would have been less, but then we took a cooking class.  The food cooked during that class was fabulous - hubby won me over to all natural charcoal cooking.  Besides, this way we have ONE item on our deck, not two.

Up first - chicken.  We used:

Chicken breast
1/4 cup Mister Mustard
1/4 cup Plum Jam

Heat the grill.

Cut the chicken breast using a scallopini cut.  Scallopini cut is a very thin cut done by placing the chicken breast flat and holding it down with the palm of your hand.  Using a sharp knife, cut the chicken breast in half horizontally between your hand and the counter top.   If you are not comfortable doing so, you may pound the chicken flat and cut it into two to four pieces.

Stir together the mister mustard and jam. 

Coat one side of the chicken with the mustard mixture.

Put the coated side down on your grill grate.  Brush the other side with the glaze, turn after 2 to 3 minutes.
