Marinade

Last night I got home kind of late (half price sale at the good Salvation Army; couldn't pass that up) and decided to eat veggie patties and make my chicken tasty for a later night. I had a four pound organic bird to prep... but how?

2 jalapenos
5 cloves garlic
2 Tbls. Kosher salt
1 lemon
Olive Oil
White wine
Vinegar
Chicken Broth

Mix healthy amounts (about 1/2 cup each) of the vinegar, wine, and olive oil in a tupperware container large enough to hold the chicken. Stir in the salt, dissolve.

Broadly chop the jalapenos and garlic; drop in the blender. Squeeze in the juice from the lemon; be careful to not get the seeds in the blender. Pulse until it has a semi-thick consistency. Pour into the tupperware.

Wash chicken and place in the tupperware. Seal, shake it up, and pray that this ungodly creation actually tastes good.

Not one for subtle cooking, especially when I've been drinking. Apologies; this is my way.
