Cheesy Chicken With Baked Sweet Potato Fries

When I was planning this dinner, I had no idea how very orange it would be. REALLY orange. The day-glo from the cheese flavored crackers was almost identical to the natural brightness of the sweet potatoes.

Orange overload aside, these two recipes are so good.

I like quirky recipes like the Cheesy Chicken. Crackers and melted butter, that’s it. The chicken was extremely moist and the crackers lent a great mix of salty cheese flavor.

The Sweet Potato Fries are meltingly tender inside, with a crisp, caramelized exterior.

Have yourself some orange food soon. Just add a sprig of parsley if you need some contrast.

The Orange Rocket, a band that hails from Santiago, Chili, play pumped up indie rock that sounds more North American than South.

Answers is from their January 2013 release of the same name.

Sidebar: Anyone else think that the word ‘answer’ is completely weird? You know, with that ‘W’ and all?

Check out The Orange Rocket on Bandcamp, where you can get their music.

Cheers!
