Eat Like Channing Tatum

Hi peeps!

I haven't done an Eat Like blog in a very long time; there just seems to be so much to chat about that sometimes it gets left behind. I think that another Eat Like is in the cards for today and our Celeb Menu will be with Mr Tatum.

He is known as Channing Tatum and his nickname is Chan. He claims that girls were his biggest distraction at school and he used to work as a male stripper. He is multiracial and his favourite colours are blue and green. His favourite movie is The Goonies and he is currently married. He is well known for his GI JOE movie and YES, he did ALL his own moves and dance steps in the STEP UP movie!! He has also modelled for Dolce & Gabana and Abercrombie And Fitch. Unfortunately, there isn't a clear answer to what his favourite food is, but seeing as this model/actor needs to keep well ripped for his fans, here is a menu fit for this Taurean.

Spicy Chicken Tikka Masala

1 cup yogurt
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground cumin
Chicken Tikka Masala
Five Spice Grilled Chicken
Chicken Biryani
Easy Indian Butter Chicken
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
3 teaspoons salt, or to taste
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 cup heavy cream
4 teaspoons salt, or to taste
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
4 long skewers

In a large bowl, combine yogurt, lemon juice, 2 teaspoons cumin, cinnamon, cayenne, black pepper, ginger, and 4 teaspoons salt. Stir in chicken, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat a grill for high heat.

Lightly oil the grill grate. Thread chicken onto skewers, and discard marinade. Grill until juices run clear, about 5 minutes on each side.

Melt butter in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute garlic and jalapeno for 1 minute. Season with 2 teaspoons cumin, paprika, and 3 teaspoons salt. Stir in tomato sauce and cream. Simmer on low heat until sauce thickens, about 20 minutes. Add grilled chicken, and simmer for 10 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter, and garnish with fresh cilantro.

Oh yes, please! I will have a full portion, thanks! Hope you enjoy this menu as much as I do and as much as Chan might too.

Have an absolutely fabulously sexy weekend, peeps!
