Chicken Saltimbocca

This chicken dish is incredibly flavorful, thanks to a slice of prosciutto, spinach and goat cheese wrapped up inside. As the chicken cooks in broth, the flavor of the prosciutto coats each chicken breast. After cooking, the broth you use to cook the chicken in the skillet can be used as a flavorful lemon sauce. You can add a little flour to thicken it up, or leave it alone. Serve the chicken rolls with a side of rice or couscous […]

Chicken with Sungold Tomatoes

I have an important question for the internet: where did sungold tomatoes come from?!? For so many years now, I’ve been a happy patron of my local farmers market, scarfing up delightful August heirloom tomatoes and putting up with mediocre June hothouse tomatoes, and making due with grape tomatoes the rest of the year. And then this year, out of nowhere, sungold tomatoes are everywhere! And they are so good! With such a long season! It’s amazing! The tomato gods […]

Pretzel Chicken Fingers

This chicken finger recipe brings out the inner kid in me. I used to love chicken fingers as a kid, and still do! Every now and then, I like to mix it up a little. Sometimes, I’ll make cornflakes chicken fingers, cracker chicken fingers, this time, I mixed it up a little and made them with crushed pretzel twists. The pretzels are salty and crunchy, which make them the perfect coating for chicken! The Magic Bullet does a great job chopping up […]

Pomegranate Chicken Skewers

The last time we went out to eat, we went to a Mediterranean restaurant with a unique pomegranate chicken listed on the menu. Needless to say, it piqued my interest, and it was actually really delicious. Of course, any good chef will never share their secrets or recipes, so it took a few times ordering this chicken and testing some at home before I came really close to developing the recipe. This pomegranate chicken is marinated in a reduced pomegranate juice mixture that […]

Hainanese Chicken with Ginger-Scallion Sauce

I recently was given a pressure cooker and here’s a strange-but-true fact: chicken cooked in a pressure cooker gets extra chickeny. I don’t know why this is so, but once I figured it out, one thing became obvious: I needed to make Hainanese chicken. What’s Hainanese chicken? Chicken and rice is a dish that is popular around the world in many cuisines, and Hainanese chicken is essentially the southeast Asian version: white meat chicken and rice cooked in chicken broth, fragrant […]

Lemon Garlic Rosemary Chicken Marinade

I have two easy tricks when it comes to preparing a quick weeknight dish. The first one is to prepare a delicious marinade ahead of time, and the second is to use one pot for everything. One pot meals are the best, because the cleanup is minimal and the cooking is easy. To make this flavorful lemon garlic rosemary chicken marinade, all you need is a few fresh ingredients, including lemon, garlic, rosemary sprigs and a little olive oil. The marinade […]

Taiwanese “Three Cup” Chicken

I love take-out Chinese food – who doesn’t, really? – but it’s hard to justify a greasy meal like that more than one or two times a month. That’s why lately, I’ve been experimenting with making take-out style food at home, with less grease, fresher ingredients and more vegetables than what would otherwise be delivered to your door. This Taiwanese chicken dish – named “three cup” for its use of sesame oil, rice wine, and soy sauce — turned out […]

Curried Chicken Sandwich

My friend and I love to order curried chicken sandwiches at our favorite tea spot in the city. You can easily make these popular lunch-time sandwiches at home and you can prepare the sandwich filling ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator for up to a day. I actually like it better the next day because the flavors have more time to sit and meld together. The apples and dried cranberries really add an interesting dimension of flavor! […]

Pollo Pibil Shredded Chicken Tacos

News flash: Mexican food is trending right now. Tell your friends. But before you do that, try these tacos. I spent some time in Mexico this winter and gorged myself on cochinita pibil, which is an all-night roast pork extravaganza that you eat for breakfast. That was great, and maybe someday I’ll make this with roast pork, but a similar concept works great for a healthy, very easy weeknight meal with chicken thighs. This recipe relies on achiote, which is […]

Tandoori Chicken Drumsticks

My husband and I love Indian food. I mean, we are absolutely crazy about it! Unfortunately, I find Indian cuisine one of the hardest to make at home. I am excited to share this homemade tandoori chicken recipe with you, because it’s actually really easy to prepare at home. The marinade is made of yogurt, lemon juice and many different spices. Because it’s important to let the chicken to marinate in the refrigerator for a day before cooking it, you’ll need to prepare ahead […]
