Christmas came a wee bit early in this house the other day. I am having a lot of fun with my new toy…
I have been looking at this baby for about 3 years now, and finally it went on sale, so could not pass it by. So far I have only used this machine twice, but I am loving it. My other food processor was a 22 year old Moulinex, still in good working order, however, it’s bowl capacity was only four cups. This one has 12. This machine can even grind up meat – beef, chicken, turkey – can hardly wait to try that out. It also has a shredding attachment that offers a medium shred on one side, and a smaller shred on the other side. Plus, the slicing attachment offers 6 different options for slicing thickness – how great is that? It also comes with a small bowl and blade, as well as a large bowl and blade, and both bowls are clearly marked in cups.
This food processor comes with a comprehensive user guide which also includes a number of recipes, and a great demonstration DVD. Plus the motor has a 10 year warranty! I am in love, total love. Oh, I almost forgot – this machine is way quieter than my old one – whooo hooo!
Now onto the recipe – I used the food processor to test this recipe out, but you could certainly do everything with a box grater or micro plane grater. This marinade would be lovely with beef or fish such as salmon or halibut too.
4-6 chicken thighs and drumsticks
1/2 of a large lime
2 Tblsp. Tamari Sauce
1/4 of an onion (cut into thirds)
1 large garlic clove
1 inch piece of fresh ginger
1/2 Tblsp. of Toasted Sesame Oil
If using a food processor, add all the ingredients and whiz up – this only took about 1 minute or 2.
We cooked ours on the BBQ, but if using the oven, bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Enjoy… I am heading back to the kitchen to play with my new toy!
