That looks and sounds amazing Charles! Nice work as usual bud
Thanks Jake!!
I would eat that all day long! Very nice work! Be careful, having roasted GO's can be addicting. We LOVE those things in our house!
Those roasted green onions will become a staple in my arsenal, that's a guarantee!! Appreciate it!!
Wow. That looks amazing. And looks like a lot of work
Thanks Adam. It really was more about time management and thinking ahead a little. Most everything came together while grilling the chicken...
My hats off to you. You went all out on that meal. Awesome!!!
Thank you sir!!
Amazing meal Charles! I am astounded you had banana ketchup on hand.
Thanks Jeff. I had actually bought the ketchup a couple of months ago for a recipe that didn't happen...
Great looking plate!

Thank you Jim
Looks fantastic Charles. Hope you didn’t pull a muscle bringing that all together, lol. Very nice work.
Appreciate that Eric...
Wow! That meal looks like a cornucopia of flavors!! Love the pic. of the thighs on the grill...beautiful color! I had never heard of banana ketchup before I read this thread...and I happen to have 4 ripe bananas on the counter. I'll be making this in the very near future.
Thanks Keith. Yes, the flavors were all over the place in a very good way...
What a meal Charles and loaded with flavor based on your description!
And congrats on the much deserved ride!

It was good, Keith. As indaswamp indaswamp said, it was a "cornucopia of flavors"...

You have been on fire Charles. Another great meal and another for the list.
Thank you Brian, but I am done for awhile. Fishing is in full swing and my time here will be limited...
That's a 5 star meal right there. Damn that looks good!
Not sure about 5 star, but I certainly appreciate you compliments...
Dang good looking meal! I would tear it up!

Thank you Jason!
Now that's some serious chow!

This is amazing. Man, you make the rest of us look bad (well, I make myself look bad.) Great post, I know it was good.
I would never try to make anyone look bad, but I really appreciate the thoughts...
Man, its only 9:15 and now Im starved lol. Awesome dish
Awesome meal Charles... that chicken looks phenomenal! Good hint taking!

Thanks Ryan. Yes, I can take a hint from Sheila sometimes...😉
Damn Charles, you’ve really been on a roll as of late. That meal looks phenomenal buddy! Very nice job on pulling all that together and Congrats on a well deserved ride again! 😉
Thanks Justin. Besides a little pre-planning the day before, it wasn't real difficult to pull together. Most of it happened while the chicken was on the grill...

I actual went fishing yesterday. chopsaw chopsaw Rich mentioned using my messed up sausage for catfish. Got several little ones with it. They where pretty small and did not keep any.

MMMM! Reminds me of the smells of that when sitting in a park cooking it with the Filipino half of the family in Bagio, Philippines.

I'm going to half to make that soon.
Came home and there was a printed copy of this recipe laying on the counter...

Now, I'm not the smartest person in the world, but I can take a hint so it seems an Asian inspired meal was on the schedule. I looked the recipe over and it called for marinated B/S thighs, but I had regular bone-in so that's what it's going to be. For those who don't want to click on the recipe, here's the marinade ingredients and I doubled this because I had 5 lbs. of chicken...
  • 10 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice, about 2 lemons
  • 1 cup ketchup, preferably banana ketchup (or banana sauce)
  • 1 cup lemon-lime soda, preferably 7Up
  • 1/2 cup packed light or dark brown sugar. I used Swerve
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce. I used low sodium
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
I assembled most of the ingredients together...

The marinade was mixed and the chicken went into a 2 gallon bag for a 24 hour dunk...

So thinking stir-fried rice would be a good side and needing day-old rice, I cooked a pot and laid it out on a sheet pan in the fridge overnight, too...
View attachment 698487

The next afternoon, I drained the marinade and put it in a pot to reduce for a BBQ sauce while I grilled the chicken...

I dusted the thighs with gochugaru which is Korean chili flakes. It's not much heat at all...
View attachment 698490

Onto a Weber with some lump and oak splits...
View attachment 698491

While the chicken was cooking and the sauce was reducing, I started on another side...Asian Cucumber Salad...
  • 6 Persian or Japanese cucumbers* often labeled "mini cucumbers". I used English cukes
  • 1/2 cup honey-roasted peanuts chopped
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce (or gluten-free tamari)
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon sugar. I subbed Swerve
View attachment 698493

Instead of chopping the peanuts, I put them in a bag and beat them with my meat mallet...
View attachment 698492
Mixed up the dressing and cut the cukes, but left them separate until time to eat.

Next was another side inspired by @civilsmoker...roasted green onions...
View attachment 698494
I had about 1½ bunches cleaned. I minced up about a tsp of fresh ginger and garlic. Coated the onions with EVOO and tossed with the ginger and garlic to coat...
View attachment 698495
Into a 425℉ oven to roast.

Now for the stir-fried rice. I don't have a wok so my big skillet will have to work. Couple of tsp. of EVOO, some diced up ham, minced garlic, chopped up white parts of some green onions, and some chopped up roasted fresh green beans which were in the fridge went into the skillet on medium high...

Then 1 cup of frozen peas and carrots and then the rice...
View attachment 698497

When that was all ready, moved it to one side and added 3 eggs scrambled...
View attachment 698498

Once the eggs were cooked, all was stirred together and a couple of TBSP of low sodium soy sauce was added. Taste for seasoning and adjust as necessary.

Meanwhile, the chicken has been glazed a couple of times with the reduced marinade and is ready for a trip under the broiler to crisp up the skin some...

Onions are done and glazed with Bachan's Japanese BBQ sauce...

The cucumber salad is dressed.
If you've stuck it out this far, it's FINALLY time to eat...
View attachment 698502

The taste of the chicken was amazing. Slightly sweet and no heat. Next time I may jazz it up a little more. That cucumber salad is amazing. I ate the rest this afternoon when I got home.
Charles, that look freak'in KILL'ER, bruth'a!!!!

Nice write up as usual.
