It has been wicked busy around here, so I’ve been seeking out the simplest recipes for dinner that I can find.

Like this super quick Sticky Roasted Thai Chicken. The simple ingredients give incredible flavor to the chicken as they coat it in a dark glaze. The chicken is served over a simple preparation of Garlic Chili Rapini which has a spicy bitterness that balances out the sweetness of the meat.

Our garden is still going full steam ahead, so I prepared Lemon Green Beans to serve alongside the chicken. Some tomato slices added a punch of color. Rice would also be a great side dish here.

Whenever I cook from Linda McCartney’s cookbook I find myself humming Wings’ tunes.

Here is a lovely cover of ‘Mull Of Kintyre’, a tribute to the beautiful Kintyre Peninsula in Scotland.

Check out Mark Breckenridge on Bandcamp, where you can buy his music.

Cheers!
