I have been hearing a lot about flu in the States, but nothing about flu here. I just Googled and apparently it is pretty serious in Canada too. There are 15,500 confirmed cases compared with 9,000 at this time last year. It does seem a lot of the deaths have been with people who didn't have the flu shot. We were talking about this in exercise class and we couldn't remember when we had last had flu. One woman said the only time she had had flu was when she had the flu shot first.
Here's another pretty simple dish. I am not sure why, but I cannot seem to post a picture of this recipe. I have tried all kinds of pictures including some I have used before but I cannot seem to use them for some reason. So I have posted a picture of squirrels in North Carolina, in our back yard.
Spicy Chicken Breasts
Recipe by: Barbara Radford "This is a great skinless, chicken breast recipe that can be served over salad greens or as an entree! If serving over salad greens, cut chicken into strips and top with your favorite salsa or dressing
2 1/2 Tbs paprika
2 Tbs garlic powder
1 Tbs salt
1 Tbs onion powder
1 Tbs dried thyme
1 Tbs ground cayenne pepper
1 Tbs ground black pepper
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1. In a medium bowl, mix together the paprika, garlic powder, salt, onion powder, thyme, cayenne pepper, and ground black pepper. Set aside about 3 tablespoons of this seasoning mixture for the chicken; store the remainder in an airtight container for later use (for seasoning fish, meats, or vegetables).
2. Preheat grill for medium-high heat. Rub some of the reserved 3 tablespoons of seasoning onto both sides of the chicken breasts.
3. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place chicken on the grill, and cook for 6 to 8 minutes on each side, until juices run clear.
Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
