Steamed Mini Corn on the Cob

You can buy this in bags at the store’s frozen food section.

Place bag picture side down in microwave and run for 5 minutes. check and cook loner if needed.  Open bag, be careful as it is very hot and turn corn out into a serving dish.

Or put two cups of water in pot and put strainer over pot and put corn in that cover and let water boil cook for ten minutes.


I cooked the chicken on my Foe-man (off-name hendged grill like the foreman) The chicken took only about 6 to 8 minutes in total to cook as itcooked on both sides at the same time.

Also I used the slapchop to chop the peppers and garlic.  I like the slapchop as it makes chopping things like onions, potatoes etc quick.

I found this very easy to fix and it was pretty good. The rice is good if you mix some of the sause mixture in it.  The chicken isn’t overly spicy but you can leave the seeds of the peppers out or leave them in as you like.

The chicken was frozen.  I ran hot water over them until I could pull them apart, then fill a glass pie plat with some water and defrosted the chicken in the microwave seasoning with some salt and pepper turning the chicken over and over again each time it finishes defrosting.  

Pity I didn’t capture a picture of it but the bright green ness of the peppers and the garlic and all make it look pretty. It is very good so give it a go and let me know what you think.
