Another Success from Cooking For Isaiah!

This week I promised myself that I was going to try out a new recipe. I have been wanting to make a new recipe from Cooking for Isaiah for sometime, and finally got around to doing it this week. All the recipes that I have made from this cookbook thus far have been great, so I was excited to try out another one this week.

I decided to make grilled ketchup-glazed chicken with potato slabs. The chicken was really good, as were the potatoes. However, I think I may of microwaved the potato for a few seconds too long, because when I sliced it, most of it fell apart. (It may not have been the prettiest looking dinner, but it tasted good. Here is the recipe for your enjoyment!

Grilled Ketchup-Glazed Chicken with Potato Slabs
(Recipe taken from Cooking for Isaiah)

1 cup ketchup
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 cloves of garlic, smashed
1/4 c. packed light brown sugar
2 tsp chili powder
8 chicken drumsticks (about 1 1/2 lbs) – I actually used a chicken breast
2 baking potato
Lime wedges, for serving

In a reaseable plastic bag, combine the ketchup, olive oil, vinegar, garlic, brown sugar, chili powder and 1 tsp of salt; reserve about 1/4 cup for basting. Add the drumsticks, seal the bag and let marinade for about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat grill or grill pan to high. Microwave the potatoes on high until slightly softened, 5-7 minutes. Slice lengthwise and drizzle both sides with olive oil.

Grill drumsticks, basting occasionally and turning, until skin is golden and crispy and juice runs clear, 25-30 minutes. In the last 10 minutes of cooking, grill potatoes until grill marks appear, about 4 minutes each side. Sprinkle with salt if desired.

Hope everyone has a great Halloween weekend!!
