An easy marinade for the chicken…using the overflow of mint from the garden…I intended to grill this chicken, but ended up baking it because of a DOWNPOUR during dinner prep time. It was still delicious, but think it would have been better if grilled!

I just re-found your blog! I posted my first $5 dinner for Sloppy Joses over Polenta – a Mexican-inspred version of Sloppy Joes using ground turkey. It was easy and delicious!
I am constantly amazed by all the good recipes you have. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
we usually drink our mint from the garden in mojito form during the summer. now we can eat it too! 🙂
This sounds good. Will definitely give this one a try. Thanks!
I made this for friends last night- went great with the Mojitos… it was an absolute HIT! I added rum to my marinade, though, because I didn’t think it was authentic enough without it…
I’ve been making TONS of your recipes lately and posting them on my facebook (with credit to you, of course!)
My 17-month-old LOVES your baked oatmeal with vanilla yogurt! I freezed the rest of the pan and now we have a quick easy breakfast anytime!
You are awesome- love your blog!
Thanks again for the advice Erin!
