Cuisses de Poulet à l’Oseille – Chicken Thighs Braised with Sorrel

You can be easily forgiven if you’re not familiar with sorrel.   It’s not a vegetable we see much of here in the states.  You may have seen the red-veined variety. It’s often used as garnish on fancy plates – especially the tiny leaves.   But I’m talking about garden sorrel, or […]

Easy Chicken Thigh Massaman Curry

Normally I wait until the light is just right to photograph dishes in my tiny kitchen studio – and usually because I’m making dinner – that’s in the afternoon. Today though, the light was just so nice that I shot this one in the full sun.  It’s a different look. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Chicken Thigh Ragu Bolognese

If you enjoy The Chicken Thigh Guy, be sure to check out my other food related project: The Weekly Menu There’s not a whole lot that’s more satisfying than a steaming plate of spaghetti with meat sauce – especially if it’s piled with fresh grated cheese.  This recipe is a […]

Simple Chicken Karaage

Karaage is shatteringly crisp, simply delicious, snackable fried chicken. And best of all, the crunch holds up. The Japanese bar staple has started to make appearances around the US given that – because of the pandemic – so much of the restaurant business is takeout only. You’ll see it appearing […]
