Slow Cooker Lamb Biryani and Scallion Cheese Stuffed Naan

I recently checked out The Indian Slow Cooker cookbook from the library and found this recipe for Biryani, which is what I order at an Indian restaurant. The meat is marinated in ginger, garam masala, tumeric, cilantro, mint, and garlic, then topped with saffron-laced basmati. It is a fantastic big batch meal that we’ll add to the rotation. For … Continue reading

Basil Chicken Burgers with Pesto Mayonnaise

Recently I discovered that my favorite local French-inspired bakery sells baked goods at our local grocer. I quickly picked up a pack of ciabatta rolls without a plan for how to use them. But who needs a plan when you have the Interweb? I found these Basil Chicken Burgers with Pesto Mayonnaise, which were moist, flavorful, … Continue reading

Chicken Stew with Biscuits from Barefoot Contessa

I found this recipe while looking for a big-batch chicken dish. At the time the only produce I had was onions, carrots, and frozen peas. I stumbled upon this one by the Barefoot Contessa. It’s a thick chicken stew topped with gorgeous golden biscuits. In true form, Contessa uses butter, heavy cream, half-and-half, whole milk, and … Continue reading

Chicken & Dumplings: A Comfort Food

Want a delicious chilly weather dinner? This Everyday Food Chicken and Dumpling dish is a winner. It’s flavored like chicken noodle soup, but it’s more substantial. Oh and if you’re a dill hater (I know there are some of you out there) you can substitute the crushed rosemary for dill. I prefer it that way. Chicken … Continue reading

Chicken Tikka McGyver Masala

This happens more than it should. I realize 1-1/2 hours before dinner that I’m not sure what to make and I have some chicken that’s defrosted and ready to go…what to make, what to make? To further complicate matters, I’m trying to stretch out the intervals between grocery trips, so this is one of those days where … Continue reading

Asian Chicken Meatballs with Peanut Sauce, Red Curry Couscous and Zucchini

We don’t have many meatball fans in this house, so once I found this Williams Sonoma recipe, I had high hopes for some meatball converts. Rather than beef, the meatballs are made out of chicken and incorporate these Asian flavors: ginger, lemongrass, cilantro, soy sauce, and garlic. The original recipe is an appetizer–pretty little meatballs served on lettuce leaves. I want … Continue reading

Pecan-Crusted Chicken with Orange-Maple Glaze

I  found this recipe “Pecan-Crusted Pork with Orange-Maple Glaze” in Better Homes and Garden, Sep 2011. It was delicious except that the cooking method didn’t work for me (possible cause = my ineptitude). The pecans were burning but the pork was undercooked. I had to finish it off in the oven. The family LOVED the flavors: maple, … Continue reading

This is a great weekday quick cook, especially if you prep your ingredients the night before or even in the morning. I modified the original steak-only recipe by doubling the ancho chili marinade and adding chicken to the mix. These Chicken & Steak Fajitas make great leftovers and take-away lunches. Serve it with black bean salsa, sour … Continue reading

Slow Cooker Moroccan Chicken Tagine

Not to digress, but have I been living under a rock? It didn’t even occur to me that Williams Sonoma would have RECIPES online. WHAT!?! So much to cook, so little time!

Baked Parmesan Chicken Strips & Chocolate Pudding Parfaits

This is a favorite meal of ours. It’s a light version of Parmesan Chicken that I usually prepare as baked chicken strips. The strips are crispy because of pre-toasting panko (Japanese-style) bread crumbs. They aren’t as moist as fried strips, so I recommend serving with plenty of dipping sauce, like marinara. The chicken uses four … Continue reading

Slow Cooker Chipotle Chicken Tacos

Slow Cooker Chili Tacos

I love chicken tacos, so I was delighted to find a slow cooker version in Everyday Food. Although this dish has few ingredients it has a complex flavor because of the chipotle chilies, which come canned for less than $2 in the Mexican food section. Freeze leftover chilies in a zip top bag for later. This … Continue reading

Bagawk! Chicken Broth and Red Curry Chicken Salad

Asian Chicken Salad

Efficiency in the kitchen is not always easy. So when I find pairings that save me time, I take note. Here is one such combination: Chicken Broth and Chicken Salad. Since chicken salad requires cooked chicken, use the cooking process to make a flavorful broth. Homemade broth is superior to store-bought broth. You can freeze it … Continue reading
