Feta Roast Chicken – Making Chicken Betta with Feta

I really loved everything about this feta roast chicken, as long as I was eating with my eyes closed, and that’s because despite the juicy texture, and wonderful flavor, I had trouble getting past the grainy-looking appearance of the cooked cheese mixture. The good news is, it was mostly an aesthetic issue, and the mouthfeel wasn’t nearly as dry and …

Thai Basil Chicken

Last year I had a hankering for some Thai Basil Chicken, and since I can’t imagine where I might buy the Thai basil around here, I decided the easiest thing was to grow my own. So we ordered some seeds, planted it out, and now it is large enough to harvest. Conveniently, we are also growing a plant of Thai …

Deconstructed Pesto Chicken Salad

I admit I am not at all a fan of the fad – now receding, she said hopefully – for deconstructed dishes. They were constructed in the first place for a reason. Are these dishes the work of chefs who were once those annoying little kids who insist that nothing on their plate touch anything else on their plate, and …

Creamy Chicken Toast – A Recipe and a Reminder

I was watching golf the other day, and the announcer said that great golfers don’t need lessons, they only need reminders, and I immediately thought how well that saying applies to cooking. Well, this creamy chicken toast recipe is both a lesson (aka recipe) and a reminder, and a comforting one at that. We’ll get to the recipe, but first, …

Airline Chicken Breast – Come Pan-Fry the Friendly Skies

Welcome to another episode of food you only see in restaurants, starring the always eye-catching “airline chicken” breast. Legend has it that the name comes from the fact this cut of chicken is shaped like an airplane wing, but that’s not actually the reason.  This beautiful breast is known as airline chicken because it was such a popular menu item …

Tsukune (Chicken Patties) with Yakitori Sauce

These were quite a lot of fun to make! As you can tell from the photo, I have acquired a sandwich press/grill and have been using it. I think I made panini exactly once, and then it’s been more burger-y things non-stop.  I see no reason not to cook them in a skillet, though, if that’s what you have. Like …

Chinese Style Chicken Salad

This was a pleasant one-dish meal for another hot, dry day. There is something just very appealing about cold noodles in a zingy sauce. I’m calling for you to poach the chicken, but this would be a great use for leftovers from a purchased rotisserie chicken, which in turn is a good way to keep the heat down in the …

Rhubarb Barbecue Sauce on Ribs

The rhubarb has risen up and is at its prime, so the question also arose: what to do with it? It would go well in a barbecue sauce, I thought, and sure enough when I searched there are lots of recipes out there. Most of them suffered from my usual complaint about vegetable-flavoured sweet things: too much sweetener and not …

Whole Chicken Pie – Finally, a Great Pie with Bones

There’s a restaurant up the street that serves a whole chicken wrapped in brioche, and ever since I saw it, I’ve wanted to do that video. I’ve never actually had it, since it’s $100, and you have to order it a day in advance. I love chicken, but I think I’ll save my hundred dollar bills for more sensible things, …
