the casual crowd
A night at home with your closest friends doesn’t have to mean pizza, a greasy chicken bucket or potato chips. Spicy chicken bites or a batch of soft potato wedges are a breath of finger-licking-good fresh air.

cajun chicken bites

1 lb boneless chicken breast
1 Tbsp fresh thyme (1/2 Tbsp dried thyme)
1 Tbsp black pepper
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp white pepper or cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp oil
3 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp corn starch
˝ cube (1/4 cup) of butter

Serves 2-3

1 Cut the chicken breasts into 1 inch squares or ‘bites’ and mix them with the soy sauce and corn starch in a large bowl. Set in the refrigerator for 30 min.
2 Melt the butter in a sauce pan on the stove. Mix in the pepper, cayenne pepper (or white pepper), garlic powder and thyme to create a paste.
3 Retrieve the chicken from the refrigerator and brown them in a skillet with the oil. Once they are browned, pour and mix in the Cajun paste. Continue stirring until the chicken bites are cooked through. Serve with toasted flat bread.

parmesan and thyme potatoes

6 large potatoes, peeled and quartered into wedges
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp fresh thyme (1/2 Tbsp dried thyme)
1 cup flour
1 Tbsp garlic powder
cooking spray

Serves 4

1 Preheat your oven to 350 F or 180 C.
2 Spray the potatoes with cooking spray.
3 Place all the remaining ingredients in a paper bag. Add the potatoes and shake to mix.
4 Set the potatoes in a 9”x13” pan and spray lightly over the top once more. Cover with foil.
5 Bake for 45 minutes, then remove the cover and bake for 15 minutes more or until the potatoes look browned.
