Indian Spiced Fried Chicken

I’ve been taking a little break. I needed it. Who doesn’t these days. But I’ve been cooking. I made my Buttermilk Chicken Sandwich for my brother and his family – the first (carefully distanced, lots of COVID-19 testing) family visit since March. And I have been cooking and developing new […]

Chicken Salad with Pistachios and Dried Cherries

I love chicken salad. It’s a delicious lunch, snack, or even hors d’oeuvre, and it can be made from leftovers. Sure, if I’m making it for a fancy garden party, i’ll use fresh chicken and poach it in stock to make it as deliciously chicken-ey as possible, but especially in […]

Korean Style Fried Chicken

In the past decade or so, Korean fried chicken has grown from a niche food, available only in the Koreatowns of coastal cities, to a national phenomenon – cloned, copied, and repurposed, found in fast food and fine dining, and even showing up as a potato-chip flavor. There is a […]

Chicken Thigh Larb

If you’ve never encountered larb, it’s one of the greatest dishes ever.  It’s meat salad.  Yup. Say that with me, those wonderfully incongruous delicious perfect words. Meat Salad.  Sweet, sour, salty, spicy, meat salad. Larb (which has a number of spellings and transliterations) is a traditional dish from Laos and […]

Jerk Chicken Thighs

When I was first learning to cook, sometime late in high school, I was obsessed with jerk chicken. To be honest, I have no idea where the obsession came from. It was not a common dish in the area of Ohio where I grew up. On the other hand, there […]

Bacon Wrapped Pineapple Chicken

The 4th of July in my hometown is more than quick patriotic nod to our country’s founding fathers. In that little midwestern town it’s homecoming and founder’s day and independence day all rolled into one. The high School reunions are all scheduled for that week, half the town is in […]

Red Sauce Spaghetti and Chicken Thigh Meatballs

Wait, chicken thigh meatballs? You’re kidding, right?  No. I’m not. This is another in my series of “chicken thighs are a great stand in for other meats” recipes.  In this case, again, they’re standing in for pork.  Or maybe veal. Or both.   Italian American Spaghetti and Meatballs is classic comfort […]

Chicken Thigh Al Pastor

Today is a day that everyone in the states thinks is a big holiday in Mexico, but isn’t really. Mostly we think that because lots of companies want to sell us tequila and corn chips and avocados and more tequila.  Regardless of that, it’s also Tuesday, and a quarantimes Tuesday […]

Chicken Thigh Piccata

I’m sticking with the ’70s dinner party classics right now, mostly because they’re also almost pantry classics. Easy meals that don’t require a lot in the way of ingredients, or that feature something you may have found in the back of your fridge while … foraging during Social Distancing? Chicken […]
