Honey Lime Grilled Chicken! Tasty. Healthy. Easy. Great in a salad, over rice or in a soft bun

Some nights I crave carbs like pizza and pasta. Then there are the nights when all I want is a fresh garden salad topped with juicy slices of perfectly grilled chicken. This marinade blends together some of my favorite ingredients to create a sweetly glazed chicken with a kick of lime.

 

Ingredients:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
Juice of 1 lime
3 tablespoons honey
3 cloves of garlic, diced
1 tablespoon of ginger, diced
1 teaspoon Grill Mates® Montreal Steak Seasoning.

Directions:
Combine the olive oil, soy sauce, lime, honey, garlic, ginger and steak seasoning in a large zip lock bag. Place the chicken inside and marinate for several hours. Heat grill pan to medium high and grill chicken for approximately 6 minutes each side, or until juices run clear. Squeeze some fresh lime on top before serving.

Pomegranate of commandments by Alisa Poplavskaya

Pomegranate of Commandments
Acrylic on Canvas, 90×80 cm, Stockholm, 2008

 

In the painting “Pomegranate of Commandments”  the pomegranate seeds appear to the observer as Hebrew letters, hinting at the notion of the holiness of language, similar to the idea that James Joyce had for his “Ulysses”, language is the martial art of our human spiritual eyes.

This is one aspect. Based on Jewish mystical scripture a pomegranate is the symbol of the 613 commandments in the Torah. There are two different kinds of commandments: The DOs and the DON’Ts that scripture can reflect back from the reality it stems from, be it real or a legend. The same division is also to be found in the “Ten Commandments”, where five commandments present the relationship between God and humans and the other five represent the relationships among people, which can be understood both in a religious or a Kantian way. These relationships are presented by the different branches and roots, which are either growing up or pointing down. The branches which are growing up symbolize our connection to our HIGHEST, and the branches which are growing down symbolize the relationships between people.

The path inside the pomegranate begins with dark colours and at the end it becomes golden: this symbolizes the Exodus of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt to the land of milk and honey. In the colours of “milk and honey” the observer finds similarities to a map of the biblical lands. Focus on the second glimpse…

Pomegranates by Alisa Poplavskaya

According to Midrash a pomegranate has 613 seeds to represent the 613 commandments in the Torah. The design of the pomegranate was woven into the high priest’s robes, and brass representations were part of the Temple’s pillars. It is mentioned six times in the Song of Solomon. In different cultures this fruit represents mitzvoth and desire, color and taste, symbol and paradise…

“Menora” by Alisa Poplavskaya

© Copyright 2012 Alisa Poplavskaya All Rights Reserved

The Talmud speaks only of the menorah made by Bezaleel for the Tabernacle in the time of Moses (Ex. xxxvii. 17 et seq.), which was later placed in the Temple.

Shema Yisrael (or Sh’ma Yisroel or just Shema)  are the first two words of a section of the Torah (Hebrew Bible) that is a centerpiece of the morning and evening Jewish prayer services. The first verse encapsulates the monotheistic essence of Judaism: “Hear, O Israel: the Lord is our God, the Lord is One.” The Shema is considered the most important prayer in Judaism, and its twice-daily recitation is a mitzvah (religious commandment).

In the painting the following symbols are presented: Noah’s ark, Shofar, Menora

In my painting I have tried to combine those symbols with a light of life (hai) and enlightenment of the way with the prayer Shema.

“Tree of the knowledge of good and evil,12 tribes,three fathers”

© Copyright 2012 Alisa Poplavskaya All Rights Reserved

“The tree of the knowledge of good and evil is one of two magical trees in the story of the Garden of Eden”(Genesis 2-4)

12 roots represent 12 tribes of Israel, three branches – three fathers (Abraham, Isaac, Jacob), fruits of the tree represent fruits of the knowledge, two heads of fishes represent good and evil and they are looking into different directions, but the only One is watching all the directions of our deeds and observe all the fruits of our knowledge.

“Ark of the Covenant” by Alisa Poplavskaya

© Copyright 2012 Alisa Poplavskaya All Rights Reserved

The Ark was made of acacia or shittim wood. It measured about 43 inches (1.1 meters) long, and about 27 inches (0.7 meter) both wide and high. It had 2 gold rings fastened on each side through which poles were inserted to carry it. The poles were to remain in the rings at all times. The lid on the top was called the atonement cover, or “mercy seat.” On top of it were two carved cherubim, with their wings spread upward, overshadowing the cover (Exodus 25:10-22)

The Ark of the Covenant was by no means much more than just a box of wood and gold. The Cherubim (angels) were much more than a pretty decoration. Based on Midrash Divine Presence filled the Ark, the Cherubim on top came alive. Their wings were in a state of movement, opening and closing. Turning statues of gold into living creatures is certainly a feat worthy of the Sefer Yetzirah, but Betzalel did not bring them to life, the Shekhina did. Betzalel merely provided the body; G-d provided the soul (HaRav Ariel Bar Tzadok, 2008).

Der heilige Granatapfel – Die Kunst von Alisa Poplavskaya

Religiös-inspirierte Kunst läuft oft Gefahr ins kitschige-schwerfällige abzugleiten. Meist unterwerfen sich Künstler zu schnell der Macht des „Du-sollst“ und beten dort schon an, wo sie noch selbst schöpfen sollten. Auf die Kunst von Alisa Poplavskaya trifft dies mit Sicherheit nicht zu. Wer ihre Gemälde der Bundeslade und des „Granatapfel der Gebote“ sieht, hat das Gefühl Gustav Klimt sei zum Judentum übergetreten. Die Farben sowie die meist kabbalistische Symbolik haben nichts gemein mit plumper Esoterik und Weltflucht, sondern zelebrieren das Hier-und-Jetzt, das geheiligte Leben.
