Hunting Food

My husband is venturing into the woods...
It's elk season.
He ventures into the woods alot this time of year.
We always tell him not to come home unless he's packing an elk.
Last week he came home without one.
We are sending him back.
Try again honey...
You can do it!

Maybe if he has really great food he will stay longer...

All of this...
turned into this...
breakfast burritos
cheesy potatoes pre-cooked ready to heat up on the grill
fabulous chicken
individual apple pies
Yes, there is enough food here to feed six hunters for a month.
That's just the way it goes...

The chicken is always a hit and is so easy to make.  For you fellow blogger's  I am going to share my secret recipe.  Just don't tell anybody else...


Sweet and Savory Chicken
1 large package chicken drumsticks, thighs or wings
1 large bottle Yoshida's Original Gourmet Sauce
Lemon Pepper
Montreal Steak Seasoning
Kosher salt

Pre heat oven to 450 degrees.  Place chicken in a large baking dish.  Generously sprinkle chicken with steak seasoning, lemon pepper and salt.  Pour Yoshida's over the whole deal.  The Yoshida's should just about cover the chicken, don't be shy about pouring. More is good!
Bake at 450 degrees for 30 minutes.  Reduce oven temperature to 250 degrees and continue baking for at least 2 hours. 

That's it you're done, remove from oven and watch them disappear...

Hopefully I'll be sharing some great elk recipes soon!

Love it, I used to do this for my Roger, then he would come home and he said he would just open a can of something, so I stopped doing that. Your husband is one lucky man. Good luck to the Great white hunter. Hugs Florence

Yum! For all of that I'd go elk hunting, but I've never ever hunted for anything. Thank you for those delicious recipes and the inspiration.
