Recipe and a Giveaway Winner

Well, the Friday Night Sew-In was a success.. once again! I'm not quite ready to share what I was working on.. I'll post pictures of it tomorrow.

But in the mean time, I will share a recipe.. and the winner of our Sew-In Giveaway.

First, the recipe. This is something that we make on a regular basis.. and they are sooooooo good.
Hopefully you have a Trader Joe's by you.. cuz if you don't.. I'm so sorry!

This is Lemon Cilantro Chicken..

Honestly, I don't measure.. I just dump it all into the bag.

4 Chicken Breast (Cut into large chunks)
5 Garlic Cloves.. chopped
1 bunch of Cilantro (washed and chopped)
Salt / Pepper to taste
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1/2 cup Lemon Juice
1/4 cup Rice Vinegar

Place all ingredients in a large ziploc bag and marinate for at least 2 hours.

Put all chicken on skewers and grill.
Then - if you have a Trader Joe's, you can get their Flatbread and Tzatziki sauce. I warm the Flatbread in a frypan (no oil or anything.. just heat).

Another variation would be to leave chicken breasts whole and grill. Then serve with your favorite side dish. Trust me.. it's GOOD!!

Now.. for the Giveaway Winner!!! Drum Roll please.... Bev C. Congratulations Bev.

Please send your address to my email - handmadebyheidi@cox.net and I will get your package in the mail!

Thanks to everyone who joined us on Friday night! I know a lot of us got quite a bit done.. and that's what Friday Night Sew-In's are all about.

Congratulations to Bev C!!!!!!

That recipe sounds sooooo good. I love cilantro and we have a TJ right up the hill from us. I'm going to have to check it out. Thanks for sharing.

So, I'm assuming you finish it off by putting the chicken and tzatziki sauce together in the flatbread?

I do have a TJ's, but Winco is closer and they carry Tzatziki & flatbread. :) I think I know what I'm making for dinner!
