The menu last night was a light grilled chicken breast (boneless, skinless) just rubbed down with a bit of olive oil and some chicken seasoning, with grilled yams and grilled asparagus.
I learned a little trick yesterday on the chicken--I don't like to pound the meat and make it all the same thickness, I just don't feel the same about eating it. I like the normal shape, unless I'm eating it as a chicken burger. But, I did learn that if you cut some slits in the chicken, it makes a WORLD of difference. It was delicious!
I've never grilled yams before. They were lightly coated with olive oil and cut into 1.5 inch thick strips and grilled, though I suspect the grill was a bit high, as they were more blackened than they should have been. Still were really good and had their flavor, and the best part is that they cooked in less than 20 minutes! I love me some yams, but I hate waiting an hour for them to bake.
Good stuff!!! And we have leftovers for tonight.
