Chicken, carrots, and Dale's Sauce for dinner

It was a long day at work.  I was tired and a cloud hangs over my head for surgery I will have on Friday.  The last thing I wanted to think about was dinner.

Yet I knew I needed to eat a good meal.

Okay, what is the easiest way out?  I had chicken thighs I was going to put on the grill, but didn't feel up to dealing with that.  Into a baking dish, I put the thighs, sliced fresh carrots, and I topped this off with Dale's Seasoning (also referred to as Dale's Sauce).  I covered the dish with foil, plopped it in the oven for 40 minutes.  I must admit, the smell coming from the oven lifted my spirits.

What?  You never heard of Dale's Sauce?  Me neither until not long ago.  It's a Southern thing.  They have been in business in Birmingham, Alabama since before I was born.  In the South, you can buy it in the grocery store.  Not in Rochester.

This is good stuff!  You can use it as a marinade, on the grill, in stir fry. . . it is unlimited.  Recently I marinated a strip steak in it before putting it on the grill.  It was very good.

Granted, I wouldn't serve company this chicken and carrot dish without some sprucing up.  But it was good, easy and quick, and I got a decent meal.

  1. It sounds wonderful. After eating food in Norway for a week, I now have to cook my meals again. Of course, we are back on our diets, so they are pretty simple salads with fish or chicken, but we have to have a warm meal once in awhile. I was very proud of myself that I only gained 2 pounds while away and have already lost one of them in the first day home. I'm sure most of the gained weight had to do with salt in the food on all those planes. Thanks for all of your recipes. They are great inspiration!
