To offer variety, I went with two completely different dishes. The risotto was a recipe I found, and the basil fried rice is something I love to make.
- Grilled Chicken Legs
- Cous Cous
- Grilled Asparagus
- Garlic Herb Blend
Fairly self explanatory on this one. I don’t why I stuck with five ingredients overall, but it worked. It wasn’t a great meal, but any excuse to have friends over and challenge myself to figure out how to cook with such restraints is welcomed.
All I did was sweat the onions and par cook the asparagus, then added the cous cous. The grilled chicken was rubbed with the herb blend.
