Ginger Scallion Chicken Thighs with Greens and Noodles

I’ve been away for a bit. I’m not ignoring the chicken. The chicken is still delicious, and I’m still developing new recipes. I’ve just been working on other things as well. First of all there’s The Weekly Menu – my not-entirely-chicken weekly … well, menu newsletter. It’s even in the name. […]

Chicken and Biscuits

It’s cold and raining here today.  It’s been cold and raining a lot recently.  When it’s cold and raining I crave a certain kind of comfort food, the kind that sticks to your ribs, that’s satisfying in almost a visceral way. You have eaten. You know you have eaten.  You […]

Chicken Thigh Kapama

My mother used to serve us a dish she simply called “Greek Stew” – a tomato rich braised beef with a touch of ground cinnamon.  Like Cincinnati’s “greek chili” the dish she served us’s origins may or may not actually be Greek. It was essentially Kapama, a slow cooked preparation […]

Chicken Thighs Roasted with Ramps and Mushrooms

I developed this recipe for my other food project “The Weekly Menu” after coming back from the farmers market with a. pile of delicious, sort of rare, and very seasonal ramps. If you’re not from a swath of states bordering the Appalachian Mountains (or you’re not a huge food nerd) […]

Chicken Thighs a l’Orange

Duck a l’Orange is fancy.  Really fancy. Like, classy old movie, white tablecloth restaurant, waiter with a fake French accent, and Humphrey Bogart yelling “Garcon!” fancy.  Chicken a l’Orange is also fancy. Just not quite as fancy.  Maybe more like a nice evening at home with candles left from last […]

Nashville Style Hot Chicken

Nashville hot chicken has been all the rage for a few years now, popping up on everything from fast food menu boards to perfectly plated fine dining versions.  That’s both because it feels like a new discovery (it’s not – we just weren’t paying attention to the Black food pioneers […]

Soy Sauce Chicken Thighs

Soy sauce chicken is a wonderfully simple dish.  The chicken is slowly poached in a flavorful liquid that leaves the meat tender but toothsome, the slink a glistening brown, and the whole piece infused with the unique richness of the soy, aromatics, and Shaoxing wine. The cooking process is simple […]

Chermoula Marinated Chicken Thighs

Chermoula is a North African paste of herbs, spices, and oil that’s used as a marinade for meats, fish, and poultry. It’s also used as a dipping sauce.   How the sauce is made varies from region to region – and this isn’t a particularly authentic version of any of them. […]
