The tasty poultry that silenced three chatty ladies Posted on October 11th, 2012 in Food.
As they say, it takes a village to raise a child.Â At the moment my dog is my child and it takes a village to raise her. Lady Bugâ€™s village is small but mighty. We are three. The other two people are a couple I like to refer to as Lady Bugâ€™s “other mothers.â€ There was no relationship, no break-up, no drama but Lady Bug has three moms.
I am not gay but I have been described as a â€œlesbian enthusiast.â€ I like to think of myself as a â€œpeople enthusiastâ€ but I donâ€™t squabble over labels. Anyways, Mimi and Sarah are two of my favorite people on the planet, and thank goodness for them! Â Theyâ€™re the reason Iâ€™m able to travel and work happily because I know that Lady Bug is in good hands when sheâ€™s not in my own.
As co-parents, we are rarely in the same room, let alone the same city! When we do cross paths, itâ€™s more like a collision because weâ€™re always talking over each other. The subtext is â€œHIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!â€ but that unfortunately loses out to the â€œneed-to-knowsâ€: dates, times, scheduling, food, medication and, of course, the patterns and frequencies of Lady Bugâ€™s number 1â€™s and 2â€™s. Â Itâ€™s a jam-packed three minutes that always leaves us wanting more. Aside from these flash encounters, what weâ€™re left with are bi-annual hangouts.
One night, Mimi and Sarah came over for dinner with their dogs Willis and Freddy (Lady Bug’s BFFs). I grilled chicken, sweet onions and Portobello mushrooms on my new little hibachi grill thingy, and I made a salad on the side. Overall, the meal was stupid-good. Â But the chicken, THE CHICKEN!Â It was especially off-the-charts deelish (if I do say so myself). Â As I said, we always have tons of stuff to catch up on and yap about, but that chicken made us three chatty ladies â€œshut the f**! UP!â€
The following week, Sarah texted me simply, â€œWhatâ€™s the lesbian chicken recipe?â€ Of course, I knew exactly what she meant. Â Though I think it should be called â€œLesbian â€˜Shut the F*%! Upâ€™ Chicken,â€ you can call it whatever you like, but just try it because itâ€™s seriously easy, profoundly yummy, and it makes for a deafening silence when called forâ€”especially amongst three mouthy mommies.
THE SUPER SIMPLE, UNBELIEVABLY TASTY RECIPE:
Buy skinless boneless breasts of Chicken
Season with Salt and LOTS of Black Pepper
Drizzle liquid Chicken Bouillon or concentrated Chicken stock
And GRILL: brown one side before flipping
Once cooked remove from the grill and squeeze half a lemon over
