leftover chutney and

A couple of quick updates! First, I added to my sidebar over there, under the local links. If you're not familiar, is a service that lets you basically bookmark and link to websites/online articles etc. and share them. So when I read an interesting article or story, or see a neat product or a yummy-looking recipe, I'll add it to my links list so you can all share in the joy. So be sure to check there if you're craving food articles/recipes/news/etc. I seriously add links daily, as I am addicted to the internets and all of thier food glory.

Second may be wondering what I did with my leftover rhubarb chutney. Well, I got some chicken thighs, seared 'em and baked them with the chutney on top. So good together. To accompany that, I made some cous cous. To make it, I sauted diced red onion and garlic in some of the drippings from when I seared the thighs (they were bone-in, skin-on thighs), then added some cinnamon, cumin, garlic pwder, ground coriander, crushed red pepper and salt and pepper. Then I added a can of chicken broth and enough water to make the 3 cups of liquid the cous cous box told me I needed. I also added a couple handfuls of golden raisins (those were in the chutney!). I cooked the cous cous as directed, and when it was done I added a large can of chick peas and a handful of toasted walnut pieces. I piled it on top of some baby sminach and put a chicken thigh on top, and voila! A quick tasty meal using leftovers and pantry items. Look!
