I love combining different cultures in my food. So I made a recipe of Thai Sweet Chili Drumsticks on the grill and then a very american fried green beans with horseradish dipping sauce. It was a really good meal with a different flavor that turned out wonderful.
3 Mixing Bowls
Measuring Cups and Spoons
Cast Iron Pan
Ingredients for Thai Sweet Chili Drumsticks:
8 Chicken Drumsticks
4Tbs Thai Chili Sauce
1tsp Garlic Salt
1tsp Black Pepper
4Tbs Low Sodium Soy Sauce
Take the 8 drumsticks and place them in the pie dish and cover with the salt and pepper. In the mixing bowl mix together all the other ingredients and pour over the drumsticks, cover and marinate in the fridge for 2 hours.
Heat up the grill pan on medium heat. Also preheat the oven to 375°F. Place the drumsticks on the grill pan and cook for 5 to 6 minutes on each side. Place on cookie sheet and cook in the oven for 20 minutes or until the chicken reaches 165°F in the middle.
Ingredients for Batter Fried Green Beans:
1 1/2 C Green Beans
3/4 C Flour
1/4 C Cornmeal
1 C Club Soda
1tsp Cayenne Pepper
Canola Oil, enough to cover the pan complete to an inch.
Mix all the ingredients except for the green beans in the mixing bowl until smooth. Wash and dry the green beans. Heat up the Cast Iron with the canola oil. Add the green beans the the batter in batches. Then add to the oil without too much crowding and cook on each side for 2 minutes each side.
Ingredients for the Dipping Sauce for Fried Green Beans:
2Tbs Horseradish Cream(you can add more or less if it is too intense for you)
Pinch of Paprika, Salt, Oregano, Black Pepper, and Cayenne Pepper
Combine all ingredients and mix until smooth. Refridgerate until ready for use.
