Limeade Chicken

Dedicating this dish to the great man: Alan Turing! Please read 

more about him after the recipe. 
This easy to fix chicken with a splash of lime is a wonderful way 
to celebrate a beautiful end of summer evening.

Lime serves as an unexpected treatment on a chicken dinner. 

Even with the fruit costing 50 cents a piece, it is a small splurge 

for such a great flavor.

2 to 3 lbs chicken thighs
1 small can frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
cup Soy Sauce
½ tsp Celery Salt
tsp Garlic Powder1 clove of garlic minced fine
2 limes – 1 zested and and squeezed, the other sliced thinly
Garnish With Sliced Limes & Cilantro


Mince a clove of garlic
Zest one lime and squeeze the juice into the mix. Slice the other thinly.

In a medium bowl, blend together limeade concentrate, soy sauce, celery salt, lime zest, and garlic powder. (It will turn dark as soon as you add the soy sauce.)

Push the chicken pieces into the sauce while you Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

When oven is ready, spray a 9 x 13 baking dish and place the pieces in so they don't touch. Spoon the sauce over each.

Bake about 60 minutes, basting occasionally throughout cooking time.

If you like a thicker sauce, add 1 tbs of cornstarch to the mix and heat. Stir until this reaches desired consistency.

Remove and allow to rest for 5 minutes in the dish.

Garnish with lime slices and cilantro.
Slave opted to serve this with a simple long grain and wild rice side dish and some mixed vegetables.

The aroma filling the kitchen is heavenly!
Serving my Master Indy and so grateful for the chance.


To satisfy and restore.

..I cook!

Please allow me to introduce you to an icon in computers. A man who did so much for his country and was so brutally treated afterwords:

                              Alan Turing

Alan Turing was a brilliant man. His pioneering work with designing and building computers was a prominent factor in winning WWII. His machine broke the “un-breakable” German Enigma Code machine.

He created the first computers and first computer programs. After the war, Turing created the first detailed design of a “stored-program” Computer. While most of his work was top secret, it was found out that Turing was gay! 
1n 1952, he admitted to having had sex with another man and was convicted.
The court ordered him to undergo injections of female hormone to “cure or lower his sex drive”. These not only made him impotent and caused him to grow female type breasts, the injections also induced physiological disturbances. 
In spite of the horrific damage being done to his body & mind, he continued his work. Turing was a founding father of modern cognitive science. He thought of the human brain as a digital computer. Turing theorized the cortex at birth is an 'unorganized machine' which through 'training' becomes organized 'into a universal machine or something like it'.
He pioneered what is now referred to as Artificial Intelligence.

Turing worked on what would now be called Artificial Life, using a computer to model aspects of biological growth, in particular a chemical mechanism by which the genes of a zygote could determine the anatomical structure of the resulting animal or plant. In the middle of this groundbreaking work he was found dead.

In 1954 The coroner ruled cyanide poisoning. It was assumed a suicide but it could have been accidental or otherwise. A news release claimed he had eaten an apple that had cyanide on it but no tests were made. The man who had saved the United Kingdom had become an embarrassment to the Crown. He was now gone.

It is reported that Steve Jobs decided to use an apple with a bite taken out logo as a tribute to this great man. In 2013 Turing was awarded a posthumous Royal Pardon.

Just last year a movie about Alan Turing: “The Imitation Game” with Benedict Cumberbatch brought his story to the world.

Remember next month, October is LGBT History Month!
