Chicken, Rice, Carrot Dinner

I haven't been making a lot of Desserts as of late (although I really want to). The main reason has been my insane poverty. I'm working a camp job 35 hours a week, or more, and yet have no money.

So I've been experimenting with whats in the house-- which is never sweets. We don't have any Flour for baking or other key ingredients (Baking powder!). So I've been experimenting with Dinners.

Tonight I used a new Rub that I found online.

Chicken Rub
2 tbsp Brown Sugar
2 tbsp Peprika
1 tsp Chili Powder
1 tsp Salt
I added some Garlic salt to mine, just a sprinkle though!

Chop up 2 peeled carrots and Place into a microwavable bowl. Add Dried Sage Rub. I added quite a bit, maybe about a capful? Microwave until soft (5 minutes? I dunno I had the microwave do it lol). When they are fork tender, taste to see if there is enough flavor, if not add some Mrs. Dash seasoning. Unfortunatly I added WAY too much, thereby only being able to taste that seasoning.


I really liked the Chicken rub. I can definetly seeing this made before hand. Sadly I had the pan on too high and seared the chicken more than intended. *Note to Self, Use medium heat instead of Medium-high* The sugar carmalizes nicely and creates a wonderful flavor, with a little heat from the chili powder.

The Carrots were amazing... until I overseasoned them. I'll admit I have a heavy hand with seasoning. For anyone who hasn't tried Carrots with Sage as a seasoning, it's really all you need. They are SO good.

That sounds amazing.

I think you should try this next. Haha

(And this is what I made for dinner last night, and it was delicious. Weird, but delicious.)

Blogger is owned by Google, so it's just an extension of my Google account (I was amazed by this when I found out. Incredibly convenient. haha)
