Broiled Shrimp In Jerk Sauce, Chicken, Potatoes, And Gravy



Friday, we just wanted a little snack for supper...used up some shrimp I broiled with a thin jerk sauce, and some lef over potato salad...
Sunday, we were going to make a run to an Indian casino north of town, so Saturday we had our normally large Sunday meal! I have been using too large boneless skinless chicken breasts, and was sick of them! I like dark meat- preferably bone in thighs, with the skin left on! This goes well with roasted potatoes, as the cooking times and temperature for both are virtually identical! Lawrys Seasoned salt, coarse ground black pepper, then coated with olive oil is really all you need. Baked at 330F for 70-75 minutes in an uncovered pan, gives you a simple, yet hardy dish! I made chicken gravy for the potatoes, but a little on the chicken doesn't taste bad either..
Our trip to the casino was slightly lucrative, coming home with more money than we left with!
I did add a photo of a local park for the Picnic Throwdown, which is one post back..
Tonight I have plans to make a rice, broccoli, and cheese casserole we haven't had in ages..
Have a good week everybody!

Nice to come home with more than you left with - and have a good time to boot!

buffalodick said...

Kate- Matches the meal really well...
I.G.- Yeah, it's been a while since we've done that!

I have like a full notebook of Chef Buff's Recipes. You could publish on hellva cookbook!

Did you say Casino? There's one thing I love as much as my cookbooks. Need I say more:)

I've been using more chicken thighs lately. IMHO, they are more flavorful and versatile.

Thanks for sharing...

P.S. I'll be hitting the casino next week for my birthday!!!

Chef E said...

I am with Louise on that one!

I have not made broccoli, rice, cheese casserole in a while, maybe its time!

Pam said...

Congrats on a lucrative casino visit!

buffalodick said...

R.L.M- It could happen some day!
louise- It's fun when you win...good luck, and Happy Birthday!
ChefE- Sounded good to me, too!
Pam- Thanks! We usually lose...

The chicken looks better then pan fried. And shrimp I could die for. But the very best has got to be the potatoes and gravy. I can make a meal of chicken gravy over bread. Well...okay any kind of gravy over bread.

Good feeling to have a winning day at the Casino. I'm not even allowed in a Casino when my old boy goes for an occasional day of BlackJack. I'm fondly called "Mrs. BadLuck".

That's okay I'll stay home and eat gravy over my bread.

Marjie said...

It's always a plus when you come back with more money than you left with! I like the kind of chicken you like.

Kris said...

Love it!

Chris said...

Was the jerk sauce that one that is made locally up there?

sheri... said...

you know, i cook at home almost every day but it doesn't seem nearly as exciting as reading about what you're whipping up! i have a feeling you could have us eating out of your hand if you simply opened a can of alpo ;)

buffalodick said...

Marjie- Skin crisp, meat juicy- baking it always gives me good results..
Kris- The winning or the food?
Chris- No, It was a commercial brand- much thinner than paste..
sheri- I have made food I did feed the dog with... :)

it's bad for me to come here - It makes me dribble on my keyboard!

buffalodick said...

E.D.- I spill adult beverages on mine- shorted out two of them in three years!

JihadGene said...

Ruv the shrimp looong time!

KIM Jong IL (the North Korean shrimp)

Barbara said...

I think chicken always tastes better with the bone in and the skin on. Much prefer thigh meat too. I'm hungry now...not time for lunch yet either.
(Are you posting the rice, broccoli and cheese casserole? I don't think I have it.)

buffalodick said...

Gene- Funny- N. Korean shrimp!
Barb- Next post, I decided to make it Tuesday instead!

John McElveen said...

Great Stuff Buff-- Great stuff--I too use a regular cooler- Ice or refrezables.. I bet that Jerk Chicken is awesome--

MAJOR BITE???

John

buffalodick said...

John-I get in a lot of outdoor cook offs, so I have have coolers and some to spare! Those insulated shopping bags at Sams, Gordon Foods, etc. are awful handy too- and cheap!

Mona said...

Roasted potatoes! mmmmmmm!

That picture added in last post is so picturesque! :)

Casino trips like those I like :)

buffalodick said...

Mona- I hope you are OK...Are you adjusting? I sure hope so, as you have always helped all of us, when maybe you need a shoulder to cry on, and a person who will listen... would love to talk with you, and see where you are at... Good heart, that took a hard hit..

G-Man said...

Hey Mon!

Jeff B said...

I just got a big package of thighs from Costco. They're going on the Trager tonight. The skin gets nice and crispy while the meat stays moist. My favorite part of the bird.

buffalodick said...

G-man- I here!
Jeff- That's what I talkin' about!

carma said...

does your broccoli casserole have any meat products in it - if not, I've gotta try it. I bet even VC will enjoy it :D

Tracie said...

Congrats on winning at the casino!

I had Subway for dinner. Your meal sounds better.

Jen said...

Every tinme I think of shrimp I get angrier about the Gulf oil spill...

Char said...

I love shrimp...prepared any old way. However, I'd be reluctent to try anything called 'jerk sauce'.
Just sayin.

Your jerk shrimp sounds great! Meanwhile, my picnic smackdown post is up now - and I made something especially for you, b.d. :)

eggy

buffalodick said...

carma- no meat, but lots of cheese!
Tracie- A sub sounds good right now!
Jen- We were not getting Gulf shrimp before the spill..all farm raised out of the Orient..
Char- It does make you think and wonder the origins of the word!
Eggplant- My God! What a pile of food you made!

BamaTrav said...

Our shrimp is ruined now. Gulf oil spill and all :(

Jingle said...

tasty and fun looking shrimp...
I would love to have a taste of it.
Smiles!

buffalodick said...

bama- tasteless shrimp is what we're used to around here... Boycott BP!!!
Jingle- A little sauce can be the answer to tasting the shrimp!
