Saturday, January 28th, marks the beginning of the Year of the Rooster and I’m sharing 17 Asian-inspired chicken recipes to get you into the mood.
I’m an excited tiger this year. According to my Chinese horoscope it’s going to be an awesome year. Here’s the link to find out how the Year of the Rooster is going to treat you.
I don’t live my life by horoscopes but I do find them interesting. It’s fun to compare the horoscope predictions to what happens in the real world. Plus it cheers me up to see a positive prediction when I’m down. Just a little fun in a too serious world. And being just a little less serious is part of my goal of finding the BETTER ME in 2017.
I don’t know about you but I love Asian food. It just makes me happy. Hopefully you feel the same way because I’m bringing you plenty of Asian-inspired chicken recipes for our Year of the Rooster celebration.
