Screaming Yellow Sweet Sour Chicken Chili

Imbued with dandelion hue, splashed with sweet, soaked with sour, this dish is chili to the bone. Far from content with keeping up with the Joneses, this recipe curtseys, compliments the Joneses on their impeccable taste, and wonders off quietly. No doubt in pursuit of an entirely different drummer.

Tasting Notes:

As to which drummer this chili ultimately fell in step with is subject mass speculation. It was not cloyingly sweet, nor puckeringly sour, nor was it ass-burning hot. Enigmatic, indeed. While the precise identity of the minstrel remains dubious, the tunefulness of the rhythm left no doubt. This dish harmonized well with the Involuntary Taste Panel. Pleasing yet independent, complex yet affable. Certainly there was much to like here.

Thank you for the muse, food4yourmood.
