The drums are beating out a unique pattern, the bass is groovin' on a line of its own, and guitars are being strummed and/or plucked to match… this band is jammin'. Music has a harmony of its own and so does food; the jam here takes your plain, workaday onion and transforms it into tangy, sweet delight, perfect for the Brussels sprouts. And that's not the only magical chord in this dinner: the creamy red pepper sauce plays a solo that both rocks and shreds on the succulent chicken. This meal is the best kind of sunshine daydream.
Tip: If you're looking for the right texture for the sauce, dip a spoon in and see how well it sticks to the back. If it coats, you're good to go.
