I get tons of feedback on here and on facebook about people making the Mad Hungry recipes or their riffs on them; so on Mondays we’d like to start posting Mad Hungry MY Way Mondays, a part of the mad hungry blog where we show YOUR Mad Hungry Meals. Send your Mad Hungry My Way pics, riffs and stories to firstname.lastname@example.org & we’ll post!
This week’s Mad Hungry My Way comes from Val who doctored up the Mad Hungry Chile-Citrus Turkey Breast to suit her needs (and pantry!):
“After checking out the Mad Hungry blog last Monday, I knew I wanted to make the Chile-Citrus Turkey Breast sometime that week. I was going to be making some minor changes – I had some ingredients at home that I wanted to use up and they would be acceptable substitutions. The only thing I would need to pick up is the turkey. Once I got to the grocery store, it was going to cost $24.32, which was a lot more than I wanted to spend, so I got a quartered chicken as an alternative.
Instead of using the chiles, I used a combination of chili powder, smoked spanish paprika, chipotle chili powder, South African Smoke seasoning blend from Trader Joe’s and some hot sauce that I picked up in DC a couple months ago, Uncle Brutha’s Allsauce No. 10. I had clementines, so I used those with the lime. Realizing I would need some additional liquid I searched the refrigerator and found some tomato jam from Katchkie Farm – it’s sort of like a Worchestire-heavy barbecue sauce – that loosened things up.
I only let it marinate for 20 minutes or so (we were getting hungry!) and put it in the oven. It was so easy, super flavorful, and my boyfriend and a friend of ours loved it! I added sweet potatoes, corn and a ridiculously easy baking powder drop biscuit. And of course a delicious, and potent, Belgian-style brown ale.”
