I'm making dinner for Eharmony Boy on Saturday. I tried out a recipe tonight that I'm thinking of making and it was pretty good. I want to make a dessert, but he's not big on sweets, so I'm not sure what to make. Any suggestions??

Here's the recipe. I based it on a few recipes I found online, the main one being from Emeril on the Food Network site.

Orange-Soy Glazed Chicken
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (I used simply orange juice since I had it on hand)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup sugar (I used none in the marinate and much less than this in my glaze)
2 teaspoons orange zest
4 boneless chicken breasts

Set a 1 quart saucepan over medium high heat and add the OJ, soy sauce, sugar and zest. Bring to a boil, lower heat to a simmer and cook until reduced to about 3/4 cup (approximately 20 minutes). Remove from heat and pour over chicken breasts. Refridgerate for 2 hours. Emeril said to grill it, which I did tonight, but I think for my Eharmony dinner I'm going to marinade then bake it and then make some extra marinade thickened with cornstarch to pour over when I serve.

Wish me luck!

Yay! (Sheesh! It's been so long since I've visited...sorry!) But I hope you keep on enjoying EHarmony boy.

Dinner sounds good. Ask him to bring something for dessert.
