Saucy Mama's Extraordinary Condiment Contest

Okay, I love to cook but by no means am I that great. But I saw this interesting contest and decided to give it a go. I am not a big follower of recipes and usually cook willy-nilly. The deal is that I am to create a new recipe with the Saucy Mama products.

I received a “Blogger Kit” containing:
- Saucy Mama Lime Chipotle Marinade
- Saucy Mama Sesame Ginger Dressing
- Saucy Mama Parmesan Garlic Marinade
- Saucy Mama Raspberry Vinaigrette
- Saucy Mama Chipotle Mustard

I am getting healthy and fit so I created a lower-calorie meal that fits with my new lifestyle and also would be a good meal for Tom, who is not dieting. I created 3 very simple recipes that take about 30 minutes to make. I am omitting the potatoes from my plate but I am having the chicken and the salad. These are so simple anyone can make them.

Lime-Chipolte Grilled Chicken

4 Chicken Breast
Saucy Mama Lime Chipolte Marinade
Fresh chopped cilantro
1 tsp Minced fresh garlic
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 tsp. Lime Zest
Lime juice to taste

Mix all ingredients and marinade the chicken breasts preferably overnight. Grill chicken on outdoor grill about 30 minutes or until done.

Lime-Chipolte Roasted potatoes

Cut up 1.5 lbs. potatoes into bite size chunks
Saucy Mama Lime-Chipolte Marinade
pinch of cumin
pinch of coriander powder
pinch of onion and garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
Lime Zest
1 tsp. Lime juice

Mix all ingredients and mix with potatoes. Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes. When done, serve with a garnish of fresh cilantro.

Very Berry Salad

Assortment of fresh salad greens
1/2 cup fresh Raspberries, blackberries, strawberries (you can use all or just one)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or almonds
Gorgonzola cheese (I also use Bleu Cheese)
Saucy Mama Raspberry Vinaigrette

Put together the salad and mix in walnuts and berries. Crumble the Gorgonzola cheese over salad. Dress with Vinaigrette.

Overall, the dinner came out very yummy! It was fast and quick and Tom loved it. I made myself just a chicken salad and skipped the potatoes although I did sneak one or two or three or four just for the recipe's sake. But the meal still fit into my diet plan and yet was filling and delicious. I love the Lime Chipolte Marinade and want to use it on some skirt steak because I think it taste really good. The raspberry Vinaigrette is possibly some of the best dressing I have ever had.

I want to thank Barhyte and Saucy Mama for giving me the opportunity to taste their sauces for this contest. I am already planning a few more recipes with the other marinades. Yummy!
