It's all in the name...Slime Soup aka Cream of Asparagus Soup and ChickFilA Grilled Chicken Marinade

Chick Fil A Grilled Chicken Marinade

6 T mayonnaise
3 T apple cider vinegar
3 T lemon juice
2 T sugar
1 T salt
1/2 T pepper

NOTES:  This makes enough for 8 chicken breasts.  Once in the marinade, you can either leave them in the fridge for a couple of hours to overnight before grilling, or you can freeze them.  My kids call this Chick Fil A chicken, which is about the best compliment that you can give in my book!  I made this and served it with the Stetson Salad for my 7 best girlfriends last weekend, and they all wanted the recipe.  We didn't have a grill available, so we use the flat top to pan fry them, and they were still delicious!




SLIME SOUP aka Cream of Asparagus Soup:

NOTES:  I was looking for a recipe to use with things I already had in my pantry.  This was the ticket.  It would be great to make right after Thanksgiving because I can pretty much assure that you would have all of the ingredients on hand...maybe except for the canned asparagus unless you're my family ;)  I used my immersion blender right in the soup rather than blending the asparagus beforehand.  This came together really quickly.  Honestly, I had no intention of feeding this to my children because I thought it would be a big fail.  Well, my four year old helped make the soup, and exclaimed, "It looks like slime," to which I responded, "That's because it's SLIME SOUP!"  Evidently that was the best thing I could've said because the boys gobbled up a HUGE bowl each plus ate the boxed mac n cheese and grilled chicken I had heated up for their dinner (yep, using up what's in the pantry...I never claimed to make everything from scrach!!)

Happy Cooking!!!
