New Year.  New Beginnings.  New Projects.

We are on a brand-new mission to make daily meals easier by taking a store bought rotisserie chicken and turning it into a delicious, international-themed family meal.  For our first project, we turned the rotisserie chicken into a favorite of mine: Hainanese Chicken Rice from Singapore.  The whole family loved this meal – it’s tough to go wrong with chicken and rice, plus your favorite greens with some killer condiments.  Definitely not as good as the real thing one gets in Singapore, but it hits the spot when the craving hits – with minimal effort.  If you have any ideas on what else we can turn a rotisserie chicken into – send them our way.  We are super excited about our “Rotisserie Chicken Magic” project.
