Week 18 – Wild Card Edition

Playoffs are here! It’s great to finally see writers noting that the Pats and the Pack have similar defenses after being panned for the year as the worst defense while the Pack is a sure thing to win it all again this year. The Pack have been impressive this year and after all, the final score is what matters. Anxiety and acid reflux are just side effects of all those yards.

Our Pats are off today but we’re going to still enjoy tonight’s game with a wonderful Indian inspired dish. Read on as we pull together tonight’s feast.

Indian Masala inspired dish
One chicken breast
One large potato
One red pepper
Pineapple – fresh ideally but canned & cubed is ok too.
One cup of diced tomatoes – fresh we like Plum but canned is fine.
One red onion
Bombay Meat Masala spice blend
Tiger Teeth hot sauce

Cube and boil potato. Don’t over boil as some firm texture is desired. Cook the chicken over medium heat in a pot with olive oil. When done, drain potatoes and shred chicken. Skin, core and cube pineapple or drain if canned. Slice red pepper, onion and scallion into small thin pieces.

In a large frying pan put tomatoes, pineapple, 3 tbsp of olive oil and 2 tbsp of Masala spices. Simmer till all items are evenly coated and warm. Add potatoes, red peppers and chicken. Stir till mixed and evenly coated. Take a taste for desired heat level. If you prefer a spicier dish then add some Tiger Teeth to taste. 1/8 tsp will work for most, 1/4 tsp is quite hot. If you use more Tiger Teeth then you like really hot foods and more power to you.

Serve in a bowl and sprinkle with scallions and red onions. Bonus points if you have garlic Naans, but a sauce like this deserves a good bread for mop up duty. We’ll enjoy our dinner with a garlic naan and a growler of Belgian Style Pale Ale. Hope you enjoy this weeks games and recipe. cheers
