Cinnamon+ Cardamom+ Garlic+ Fresh Ginger= Best Spicy Grilled Chicken


I promised to share this recipe with my friend Robin, and because it is so simple and so yummy, I thought YOU would also like to have it.

Spicy Grilled Chicken
adapted from the book Gold'n Delicious (a book recommended to me by my dear friend Teri)

8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut in stripes.
5 cloves garlic, minced.
2 tsp fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1/2 tsp cinnamon (or 1 cinnamon stick)
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
2 tbs catchup
1 tbs red wine vinegar
1 tsp water

1. In a medium bowl combine garlic, ginger, salt, red pepper, black pepper, cinnamon and cardamom (note: I used my coffee grinder to grind the cinnamon, pepper and cardamom... gotta love the fresh ground spices!)

2. Stir in the catchup, vinegar and water.

3. Marinate the chicken breasts in this sauce for about two hours.

4. Grill and enjoy!

I love to serve this with my sister's Couscous recipe:

Couscous with Cranberries and Chives

3 cups of couscous
3 cups of boiling water
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup diced chives
salt to taste
olive oil

*optional: the juice of one lime

1. Add the boiling water to the couscous. Let it stand for 5 minutes.
2. Add the cranberries, chives, salt to taste and some olive oil (and the lime juice if you chose to add it)
3. Mix carefully.
4. serve at room temperature.

¡Buen provecho!

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."


“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”
