Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

grilled sesame ginger chicken with pineapple

i am always looking for different ways to prepare grilled chicken and this is one of our favorites.  i simply marinate the chicken in a prepared sauce for at least four hours in the refrigerator.  i usually pierce the chicken breast slices in several places to allow more marinade to soak through the meat.  either fresh pineapple or sliced pineapple chunks will work for this dish, and after the chicken is partially grilled, i add the pineapple to the grill pan.  in order to make certain that the chicken is fully cooked, i usually decrease the heat and cover the pan with foil for several minutes, to allow the chicken to cook thoroughly.  just prior to serving, i sprinkle sesame seeds over the pan to lightly garnish the dish.

this dish is great cold over a green salad or can be served with wild rice and steamed carrots.
