Booster Booth Shredded Chicken Sandwiches

I think of them as booster booth sandwiches. This sandwich featured at the concession booth of pretty much ever high school track meet, football game, and soccer tournament I ever went too.  Ladled out of a crock pot, sometimes wrapped in thin foil so it all steamed together, they were […]

Chicken Thigh Enchiladas

If you’re a frequent reader, you already know this, but I ate a lot of Mexican food when I was a kid.  I mean a lot. This was sort of weird in Ohio in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, but my Dad grew up in the Sonoran Desert of […]

Curried Coconut Chicken Thighs

This is a curry without a country. It’s not an authentic representation of any cuisine. It utilzes flavors found in a number of traditions. It’s simple, and delicious. This coconut based simmered chicken dish is also fast, can be made mild or spicy, and takes only minutes to prepare.  Unlike […]

Eastern Carolina Style Pulled Chicken

North Carolinians will tell you that this isn’t a thing, and they’re right. Barbecue in that part of the Tar Heel state isn’t made with chicken. They may even tell you that there’s no such thing as barbecue chicken- that chicken isn’t barbecue and that barbecue can only be one […]

Stroganoff Style Mushroom Chicken

Hi. While you’re here, check out my other food project – The Weekly Menu. Stroganoff might be one of those dishes you associate with a steam table, or 1950’s convenience  foods – but I love the stuff.  To be honest, I like almost any dish loaded with sour cream.  Chili?  […]

Pollo a la Veracruzana

Thanks for visiting The Chicken Thigh Guy. Check out my other project, The Weekly Menu too! Pollo a la Veracruzana – Chicken Veracruz. You may have seen this combination of tomatoes, peppers, onion, olives and capers on menus – though it’s more common as a sauce for fish, it’s a […]

Cream of Chicken Soup

Canned cream of chicken soup – in that red and white can, of course – was my go-to lunch as a kid. Honestly, I don’t know why. Something about the combination of creamy and chicken broth made me happy. I also sort of hated Tomato soup at the time and […]

Chicken Paprikash

If it is possible for a city to have a national dish, then chicken paprikash is the national dish of Cleveland. You will find it in diners, at church potlucks, on your grandmother’s table, even ladled over fries at a bar. In Cleveland, paprikash freed itself of its Eastern European […]

Southern Style Buttermilk Fried Chicken

Southern Style Buttermilk Fried Chicken is a quintessentially American dish that is loved by people all over the country – and the world. Also, it’s insanely delicious hot or cold – something that can’t be said about every dish in this book. This dish can be fried in almost any […]

Chicken Thigh Tagine with Dried Fruit and Nuts

Tagines are the ultimate prep it and forget it dishes. Traditionally, the meats and vegetables used in the Moroccan stews aren’t browned, but instead cook slowly over low moist heat, releasing their natural juices to create layers of flavor in the long slow cook. That means you can just pile […]
