Recently I had the opportunity to try out Big Ron's "Taste of Houston" Dry Rub. I took some chicken and cut it into a thin fillet about the thickness of a skirt steak. Rubbed on Rons and cooked it in my grill pan on the stove.
It was excellent all around. My wife first commented on the smell, then the flavor, and she is not easily impressed.
I served it over rice with a papaya jalapeno sauce and accompanied by Chipotle Chick Peas and roasted Pineapple.
Chicpotle Chick Peas
1 bag Chick Peas - rehydrated and drained
2 Chipotle Peppers, diced small - These are the canned ones in the Adobo Sauce
1 or so Tablespoons of te Adobo Sauce from the can
1 Handfull chopped Cilantro
Sautee the Chick Peas with the Chipotle Peppers and Adobo Sauce until heated through. Turn off and toss in the cilantro. serve warm.
This can also be made with baby canned mushrooms instead of Chick Peas.
Papaya Sauce for Chicken and Pork
3 or so cups papaya blended smooth
1 or 2 jalapenos, destemmed and deseeded, Fresh cayenne works well also
Salt to taste
Heat togeter in a pan and serve on chicken or pork. A little cream in this is nice as well but we did not have any on hand.
