Hello! Today I have five favorites to share like a tasty and easy Ginger-Lime Chicken recipe (that we are making on repeat), a television show that will make you smile (it does for me), and some Cool L.A. Style! Cindy and Annie are also sharing theirs!
Five Favs: Ginger Lime Chicken, Fun TV, L.A. Style and More
1. What To Watch On TV
I don’t know about you but with all that’s going on, I’m not in the mood to watch weird or disturbing television shows. Howard and I have been trying different shows and then dropping them by the second or third episode. But this one makes me smile and we’ve watched seven episodes so far!
Kim’s Convenience on Netflix
“While running a convenience store in Toronto, members of a Korean-Canadian family deal with customers, each other, and the evolving world around them.” It’s cute.
2. Kendall Jenner’s Cool L.A. Home
It totally has a relaxed, global, SoCal vibe and I love her kitchen with the copper pans and forest green cabinetry.
She seems pretty normal for an uber-rich Kardashian sister.
3. The Nordstrom Sale
The Nordstrom Sale is on now for cardmembers (Early Access). This is a good time to buy basics on sale. I’ve noticed that if somethings are sold out now, they may be available again when the regular sale starts.

4. Easy Ginger Lime Chicken
If you are one of those people that hates mayonnaise (not me but they are out there)…trust me about using it for a marinade for grilled boneless skinless chicken. It keeps it moist. I cooked this ginger lime chicken in a pan since we don’t have a BBQ but it would be great cooked that way. Howard loved it.
Four ingredients for this Ginger Lime Chicken!
This recipe is from the NY Times. ALI SLAGLE is the author.
- 1 ½ to 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs or breasts
- Kosher salt and black pepper
- ⅓ cup mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp lime zest (from about 2 limes), plus lime wedges, for serving
- 1 tbsp finely grated fresh ginger (from a 3-inch piece of peeled ginger)
Pat the chicken dry and season all over with 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. In a medium bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, lime zest and ginger; season with salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the mayonnaise mixture and stir to coat. (The chicken can sit in the marinade for up to 8 hours in the fridge. Let come to room temperature before cooking.)
To grill: Heat a grill to medium-high. Grill the chicken over direct heat until cooked through and juices run clear, about 5 minutes per side for thighs and about 4 minutes per side for breasts, turning as necessary to avoid burning.
To cook in a skillet (which is what I did): Heat a large skillet over medium-high. Cook the chicken until juices run clear, about 5 minutes per side for thighs and about 4 minutes per side for breasts.
Using this micro-planer zester as we have really made it a cinch!
4. Our Favorite New Kitchen Accessory
We love this new cutting board with a collapsible tray. It all can go in the dishwasher! Comes in all black, too. The tray is good for catching juice, vegetable peels, etc. making for easy clean-up.
