I just laid out some chicken, and am going to go browse through Food and Wine for some new ideas. Too lazy to hunt on the net... We are currently reorganizing the daughter's room, and by the time she gets done with me, I am suspect I am going to be tired. That inborn "move the clock an inch to the left, and the dresser over 3 feet, nevermind, put it back... etc." is rearing it's ugly head today. Don't know where she gets it from

what sort of chicken do you have? pieces with bones, boneless skinless, a whole body? my idea is do you have some jam or preserves? my first thought would be apricot/peach/pineapple or plum, and stick in microwave just to warm it and soften it a bit, then to that, add some balsamic vinegar just to give it an edge to the sweet of the jam. wash and dry, season with salt and pepper the chix, rub butter on it all over then rub down with the jam mixture, place in oven proof baking dish in 350 oven for 40 minutes or so. poke to insure juices run clear and it's done.

I've got a beef brisket smoking on the grill right now in a mix of hickory, cherry and pear wood. After it takes on a good bit of smoke, I'll wrap it in foil and finish it in the oven. Sides are roasted red potatoes with garlic, olive oil and rosemary and sugar snap peas for a veg.

Lamb chops with raspberry sauce, creamed spinach with pine nuts and roasted garlic potatoes. Homemade banana-nut bread with cream cheese spread for dessert.
