Our menu for the evening was Grilled Chicken with Rhubarb Relish, Grilled Asparagus, Sweet Potato Fries & fresh garden salad.
Daren mastered the grill while I made the fries, salad & the relish for the chicken.
Grilled Chicken with Rhubarb Relish
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
salt & pepper to taste
Sprinkle chicken with salt & pepper. Brush with lemon juice & oil. Grill until done approx. 6 minutes per side.
3 cups rhubarb, chopped
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon grated orange zest
1 cup orange juice
1-2 jalapenos, seeded & chopped
2 shallots, minced
Bring all of the relish ingredients to a boil; reduce heat & simmer, stirring occasionally. Cook about 10 minutes until it is thick. Cool. Serve over top of the grilled chicken
The final verdict; Daren was not really that impressed, but I thought is was quite tasty...so I don't know how often I'll be making it but it was fun to try using rhubarb in something other than dessert recipes. And we had a great evening at home together! =)
Blessings on your day!
