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 […]

Chicken Thigh Nuggets

Welcome to The Chicken Thigh Guy.While you’re here, check out my other project – The Weekly Menu. Anyone who says they don’t love chicken nuggets is probably lying.

Chicken Thigh Mapo Tofu

Welcome to The Chicken Thigh Guy. While you’re here, check out my other project – The Weekly Menu. I’ve been experimenting a lot with using chicken thighs in dishes that traditionally call for pork or other red meats. The texture and flavor of the thigh meat works perfectly for a […]

Chicken and Noodles

My friends from certain parts of Pennsylvania would call this “Chicken and Dumplings” but to me, and to most everyone I grew up with that’s a different dish altogether. This chicken and noodles.

Mafé Style Chicken Thigh Stew

Mafé or Groundnut Stew originates in West Africa.  It’s a spicy stew with a list of ingredients that would be incongruous, if something similar didn’t exist in many other cultures.  Ground nuts, a pungent salty fermented  sauce,  and a spicy kick come together in the same way they do in […]

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 […]
