Fusion cuisine du jour
Here at Chez Bax-Getting-Bored-And-Combining-Everything-Within-Reach, tonight's featured menu item is:

Mandarin Sour Cream Pan-Seared Chicken Breast with Sunflower Seed Garnish

The pleasing flavors of this dish have been specially selected, as per our chef's famous practices, as "the things most within arm's reach and not immediately distinguishable as poisonous." Danger? Oh, heavens, no. We've already had some critics in here this evening to give it a try. One of them described the featured dish as "surprisingly unretchworthy." Our chef even made certain to finish his own portion before recommending it to his diners. The tanginess of the citrus and sour cream combine in the mouth for a piquant burst of gentle acidity, and then the mandarin's sweetness seeps into the meat to add a light melody to the chicken's base note. Meanwhile, the sunflower seeds add a woodsy crunch putting one in mind of the sun-dappled glades of the Picardie Bourgeoinne.

But I digress: I especially recommend pairing it with a dry Riesling (Pacific Rim, Bonnie Doon Vineyard, 2002). Or would madame care to see the wine list?

Scarily enough, that doesn't sound too bad. But mandarin sour cream pan-seared chicken with sunflower seeds.... does.

Well, Kim Chee is essentially spiced sauerkraut, so kim chee hot and hot dogs is almost certainly a viable combination (assuming that you're willing to eat hot dogs in the first place.)

That said, Bananas really don't have that much structural integrety, so you're liable to end up with sweet, spicy, vinegary goop if you ferment them.

Although, the wine mentioned above is actually quite good. There will probably be a couple few bottles of that around when you come out.

Now, the wine sounded good. It's just the chicken that scared me. ;-)

Was it really bad?

Well, I know that the chicken stuffed with apricots cheese, and walnuts is quite tasty, so it wouldn't entirely suprise me if this wasn't half bad.

It wasn't half bad. I'm not sure it's worth developing an actual recipe for, but for an essentially randomly assembled dish, the ingredients meshed together fairly pleasantly.
