Ebony Does: Chrissy Teigen Cravings

I do a lot of different things, and I realized that I'm horrible at documenting and sharing them! So that stops TODAY! Kicking off my new blog series Ebony Does with something that I love to do! COOK! The kitchen is my best friend and I love making up my own recipes and trying new ones out. This time, I'm trying something spicy and sweet from the awesome Chrissy Teigen from her latest cookbook Cravings.

The Chipotle Honey Chicken With Avocado Mango Salsa 

That face right there, is full of disappointment when I found out that I had to marinate the chicken. It says for 2 -24 hours, but knowing me; I had to do it for the full 24 hours.
The sauce was awesome: chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, your favorite bourbon or whiskey, your favorite bbq sauce, garlic cloves, lime and brown sugar! First I want to say that my new found love for chipotles in adobo sauce is much appreciated so thank you Chrissy!

After you combine all the ingredients, you put it in a blender or food processor! This is where the disappointment came in, when it came to letting it marinate. I was starving when I was doing this new recipe. So waiting a full 24 hours, hurt me to my bone marrow.

                               NOW WE'RE BACK!

A Full 24 hours later! The chicken has marinated and my stomach is growling. I put the chicken in the oven and now it's time for me to make the mango salsa which is simple.

You'll need a mango, onion, cilantro, lime juice, lime zest, salt and pepper. I added tomatoes because I love tomatoes.

After you mix it all together, why not enjoy the pit of the mango and eat the rest of the mango from the skins? You can't let that go to waste and I make it a point to eat EVERYTHING, we do NOT waste food in my house!

After the chicken was in the oven for about 40 minutes, It's ready!

I think it turned out great, but of course I had to have someone else try it to confirm! Thanks to Dan for coming by and being my food tester.
