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.
