Try eggnog as an easy meal replacement.

I swap out the sugar for a packet of artificial sweetener.

You can also toss a couple of ice cubes in the blender to make it thicker like a milkshake.

I need quick easy comfort food

I'm hoping someone bookmarks the site below and tries grilling the chicken pieces and maybe report back to us here sometime. Cole slaw, corn on the cob, Mexican rice, and Mexcian style beans are good side dishes. Flour tortillas with some mild chunky salsa on it too, of course.

I just read the recipe. I would boil the reserved marinade before using it for basting the chicken.

I'm still not feeling well, either. Stomach starts hurting soon after I eat, no matter what it is, so I'm not eating much.

Thanks for the concern, but I didn't let the reserve marinade touch the chicken. I set the reserve marinade aside right after making it and stored it in the fridge.
