Shelbi's Oscar Fashion Police. This Chinese Marinade is Yummy!

Watching the Oscars! They are always fun to watch, but I like to watch the Fashion Police after the Oscars the best! I have been looking through the photos of the red carpet looks and I have to say I haven't seen anything that I love so far, but I have seen a lot that I HATE! Here is a preview of the Oscars Fashion Police from my view.

I am not a Miley Cyrus fan, but this dress is actually pretty.

Kate Winslet always looks flawless to me.

I am a huge Cameron Diez fan, even though she usually looks like a hot mess! This time she got it right and looks pretty glamorous.

I don't know what was happening with these dresses. It must of been the science fiction influences from some of the nominated movies. J-Lo looks like she is about to take flight. Vera Farmington is being swallowed by a pink flamingo dancer, and Zoe Saldena's dress looks like my old Popples stuffed animal.

Charlize Theron looks like she bought 2 cinnamon rolls from Cinnabun to stick on her boobs!

SJP is not so sexy in this tube dress!

There are a LOT more bad dresses and a few pretty ones but these are the ones that made an instant impression on me.

I found this recipe on a cooking blog, it can be used for any meat, but I used it for chicken. This is really good for those of you looking for new chicken dishes.

Chinese Marinade
3 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons Thai chili (or chili garlic) sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce (I couldn't find mine so used my Very Very Teriyaki sauce and it was yummy)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning (or 5 Chinese Spice or 7 Thai Spice)

These ingredients make enough for 2 pounds of meat, I cut it in half for our 6 chicken tenderloins.
Mix ingredients in a bowl.

Transfer into a gallon sized bag with chicken and marinade in fridge overnight.

Heat up your grill or grill pan, take chicken straight from bag and place on grill.

Cook until done.

Serve over white rice! I didn't because I had already planned spaghetti, but it would have been really good and simple over white rice.

The second time I made this I saved the marinade and cooked it in a saucepan to kill the raw chicken germs. I also added green onions to the sauce. Then I served the chicken and sauce over white rice. Jeffrey LOVED it. He asked me the next day if we had any leftovers for him to eat. I need to make this a regular dish on my menu!
