Caribbean Spiced Chicken and Manchego Potatoes

I have a thing for buying random ingredients and trying to cook with them.  A while back Le Boyfriend and I tried out Whole Foods.  We ended up spending a lot of money on…not a lot of stuff.  We mostly stuffed our faces with their incredible sample selection and found some odds and ends.

I came across this gem!  I love spice rubs.  They are magic, they do magical things to meat, and they smell soooo good.  I can’t tell you how long I spent with my nose in the stuff before I finally got around to using it.  I can’t wait to experiment with it more!  I bet it would taste amazing on potatoes.

Start by rubbing a generous amount all over a couple of chicken breasts.  While you let all of it’s goodness rest on the chicken for about fifteen minutes, you can get everything else ready to go.

Grate up a couple of potatoes.  I used red potatoes because it’s what I had on hand, but I think it would have been better with some good old russet potatoes.  Use paper towels to squeeze out the extra liquid.

Chop up half an onion…

Take a break from the potatoes and throw your chicken in a very hot skillet with some oil.  The point is to sear it on both sides and then turn the heat down and let it cook the rest of the way.  The thing I love about spice rubs is that you get an amazing crust of deliciousness.

In another pan, cook your onions in some olive oil until they start to sweat.  Add the grated potatoes and cook until everything starts to get all brown and yummy.  Then, grate in some manchego!  It’ll go from this…

To this!

Serve it up and watch Ally McBeal.  Yum!
