Recipe for Rosemary-Citrus Marinade:

This is an easy recipe for poultry, fish, and even meat and pork. Fresh herbs work best for their natural oils infuse the marinade. 

Makes 2 cups for 8 large breasts

  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil

There is nothing like a juicy flavorful baked chicken breast bone in, not to mention a healthier alternative to other proteins.  While bone in chicken breasts may take a little longer to prepare the added flavor from the bone is hard to beat.

The cost of bone in chicken breast is cheaper by the pound and expect to have the skin still on.  If you prefer no skin it is very simple to remove although I prefer some natural fat basting over the meats while it is baking in the oven.

If you are on a budget, then buying a whole chicken can be the cheaper way to go. You can create 6 to 8 pieces of meat, including the boob. In this video a butcher shows us how they do it-quickly. It is pretty easy to do once you get the hang of it and don't mind the slimy raw meat.

My only advise to debone a whole chicken is to have a steady hand and one hell of a sharp 8" to 10" chef knife. You can freeze the other pieces for a later use, or roast them and make shredded meat and a tasty broth.

Tobacco onions inherited their name simply by how the onions look after they have been prepared; little dark shreds similar to tobacco due to the spicy seasonings mixed with flour and thin strips of raw onion dredged and fried. 

As many cooks and chefs discovered, this description did not sit well with customers as Tobacco is a taboo name now a days. So, after much deliberation; the angry onion was born. 

Same concept - just more politically correct - yes even in the culinary art world.

Marinade Recipes For Beef

Marinades recipes for beef are a simple way to add incredible flavor to any cut of beef.  Cheap cuts of steak that are going to be grilled, benefit the most from a marinade.  The components of a marinade usually involve some kind of acidity, which in turn breaks down the muscle creating a more tender and flavorful end product.  

There are basically 4 parts to a marinade recipe: Acid based liquid, salt, pepper, and oil.  Other ingredients can consist of fresh herbs, spices, honey, and mustard, which will add another element of depth to the meat.
