Indian-Spiced Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

What can I say about this sandwich, except NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM ? Ok, I can say a bit more: it’s perfect for summer because you don’t have to turn on the oven. It’s got a curry/mango kick. It takes advantage of all that fresh arugula that’s available right now. And it’s freakin’ delicious. […]

Mediterranean Chicken Sandwiches

If you look on the sidebar or at the bottom of each post, you’ll notice that give recipes a grade using the standard system: A to F. You’ll also notice that there are almost no Fs, Ds, or Cs and very few Bs; it’s mostly As. That’s because, at some point on the blogging journey, […]

Orzo with Chicken and Parmesan

It still may be too early for comfort food: the days are fairly sunny and warm, and it’s still light out at 7pm. But when those cooler, darker days roll around (or if you just want a preview) this quick and easy recipe fits the bill. My favorite part of this dish is the mouthfeel. […]

Oven-Roasted Maple Chicken ‘n’ Ribs

Someday, I will learn to photograph meat in a way that does not emulate a retro cookbook. Today is not the day. I can say, however, that the recipe is fantastic. The mingling of cider, maple syrup, cinnamon, and star anise with the chicken and pork ribs is irresistible. While everything roasts, the most delicious […]

Chicken Picadillo

First al fresco dining opportunity of the season! I love cinnamon. It’s warm, rich and spicy; I’m absolutely obsessed with it when baked in sweets. Cinnamon and sugar is a natural, but the depth it adds to chocolate (or chocolate and dark coffee; mmm…) or mixed in with the fruity notes from cardamom — I […]

Chicken Tikka Masala

Photo courtesy of CooksIllustrated.com I really love chicken tikka masala, mainly because my favorite Indian restaurant, Thali of Inda, makes it so well. (But all of their food is amazing — mmmm.) Admittedly, this version from Cook’s Illustrated is not as divine as Thali’s. But it’s still delicious, and I’m thrilled to have found a […]

Chicken and Parsnip "Fries" with Spicy Vinegar

Ohhhh, Parsnip. I love you. Sure, you’re supposed to be the side complementing a roast chicken breast but, let’s be honest: you’re the star. You made me eat each and every piece of you, sliced in thin strips, tossed in olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper. The high temperature of the oven softened […]

Lemon Chicken with Mushrooms

Photo courtesy of Light & Tasty. As a flavor, lemon has been on my mind a lot lately. Naturally, it took center stage in January’s Daring Baker challenge, but I think there’s more to it than that. When I was in London, though the calendar said “January,” the air felt like early spring. The days […]

Slow Cooked Chicken with 40 Garlic Cloves

This is a Wegmans’ recipe: it’s not bad but it’s nothing to write home about, either. It made a ton of sauce/gravy, far more than we could use and the whole thing was rather bland. (Sort of like hospital food.) All in all, not a winner. Slow-Cooked Chicken with 40 Cloves (adapted) 1 pkg (approx […]

LRK’s Chicken Marsala

It’s been about a month since the kids started school — and extra-curricular activities — again, I’m back to teaching, and Shane continues working at his new job. So life is suddenly busy. A little over a year ago, we moved from Geneva to Canandaigua because — damn, y’all* — I needed to GET OUT […]
