Recipe Exchange meme

A food meme! I'm in. I saw it first at sraun, specifically this post. Here's the rules:

Share a recipe with your friends list. It should be something quick and easy and without rare ingredients; ideally, it should be something you already know by heart because you've made it often enough. If you're comfortable doing so, post public.

  1. Post a link to the entry where you ran into the meme.

  2. In the comments to the entry where you ran into the meme, share your recipe and link to the entry where you share it with your friends list.

  3. Invite your friends to share their quick and easy recipes.

  4. Explore the recipes posted in the comments to your friends' journals as well as those in your own.

I think I'll post 2 recipes as well, one that's ultra-easy and uses only ingredients you can keep on the pantry shelf, the other needs a little more effort and planning...but not much.

Rotel black beans and rice

1 can of black beans
1 can of Rotel (That's a specific brand of diced tomatoes with green chilies-any brand will do, but be aware that a can of Rotel is 10 oz., others are probably larger. But that's OK, too.)
1 bag of brown "ready rice"--the precooked microwavable stuff.

Drain and rinse the black beans, then dump in a pot. Add the Rotel. Heat. Serve over the brown rice.

If served to obligate carnivores, this also works well with leftover chicken, sausage, etc. stirred into the beans while heating.

Chicken Kyoto

A chicken's worth of pieces--I tend to go with all thighs, but you can use a whole cut-up chicken, or breasts, or whatever. Skin on or off as you want.
1/3 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. catsup
1/2 tsp. dried rosemary

Grease a baking dish, and put the chicken pieces in it, skin side up. Mix the other ingredients and pour over the chicken pieces, covering all the upper surfaces of the chicken with some sauce. Bake at 350 degrees about 50 minutes total (adjust as needed for the size of your pieces). It comes out better if you baste the chicken with the pan juices after about 20 minutes and 40 minutes, but it'll do OK without.
