If you were at the First Annual Foodbuzz Food Blogger Festival, then you undoubtedly left with at least three bags of swag. We collected gifts and goodies at just about every event, and if you went as a pair, you walked out with twice the stuff. No one’s complaining in the least! Since November, the foods and tools have been fun to use in the kitchen. Just before Thanksgiving, a couple of the ingredients were star players in several dishes. Since then, they’ve just been eaten or used at random. There was one ingredient yet to be used, which is odd because we were both so pumped to try it after receiving a full jar at the Tasting Pavilion. The time had come! With a twist of the wrist, an opened jar led to a satisfying dinner.
Honey, chicken and mustard are clearly a trio who have come to know each other well over the years. Maybe your first memory of the three is chicken fingers dipped in honey mustard sauce. Or a salad with chicken and honey mustard dressing? There are no chicken tenders in this recipe, but you could easily use sliced breast meat, thighs or drumsticks. What you see above are wings. Little chicken wings! They are just perfect for a party of 20 or just for yourself. Who else received a sample of the Vineyard Pantry Blue Cheese Dijon Mustard? If you haven’t used it yet, find a way to squeeze it in! If you have given it a try, let us know what you did with it.
