my lazy sunday: lemon & garlic grilled chicken + brown rice curry salad

The weekends are typically times to relax, get stuff done and enjoy life a little more. This weekend was no exception. Every year around this time, there is a huge 30 block garage sale that I go to every year and this time I managed to find some pretty sweet scores. I bought a pretty 1950’s teal n’ green floral tablecloth for $3, a great pack for 3 day hikes in the woods for $5 and a complete speedball screenprinting kit for $3! But somehow in the kafuffle of thrifting and biking around for groceries, I managed to break the screen on my camera, so this will be a no-picture post.

On Saturday night, I met up with the EMB (Electric Moon Banana) crew at a nearby park at 11pm sharp for a full moon bike ride around the city and although I cut home early in the ride, I still didn’t make it to bed until 3am. Sunday was rough and tiring, so I needed something bright and simple to make the day move along a little faster. A brown rice curry salad and some grilled chicken fit the bill. This would make a great picnic meal.

This is a great way to prepare chicken and you can use the meat to add to salads, natchos, burritos, etc. and this chicken is even tasty cold.

This salad tastes great the day it’s made….but it’s almost better the next day as the flavours get real tight! If you’ve got some chopped almonds, I think they’d be a lovely addition to this flavourful salad.

    sounds like you had a great weekend…and a much deserved lazy sunday! Your recipes sound great…I am always looking for a new way to ‘do’ brown rice.

    Ouch … sorry to read about your camera!

    Even without photos, thanks for sharing these recipes! The chicken one sounds particularly convenient, and I love the idea of having some left for adding to salads, etc.

    I need to come over to where you are… It is still cold here… but I am always cold… I am almost dreaming about the 100 degree humid weather the Northeast will be getting soon! I am hating the AC right now!

    I’ve been voraciously reading your blog, like I voraciously eat food. Love your recipes, writing, and pics! E.L.S. definitely deserves tonnes of awards.
    So, I cooked up the lemon chicken, on the grill. Here’s how good it was: my boyfriend (jokingly) said he wants to marry me! Yay!
