Ina’s Lemon Skillet-Roasted Chicken

There’s something very zen about watching Ina cook anything. I know other people do a lot of the prep work, but it’s calming, there aren’t a billion ingredients, the food she and Jeffrey love, I love! We ought to be best friends, but then she doesn’t live in Cave Creek, Arizona. Still, I can’t think…

Summer Herbed Chicken in a Creamed Corn Sauce

Decadent! All my favorite summer foods. A handful of ingredients and just a few simple steps are all it takes to make this 30-minute creamy chicken and corn one pan meal. The result? A total crowd-pleaser. Ingredients 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon fresh chopped thyme, plus more for serving…

Chicken Orzo Soup

It’s amazing that I’ve been craving chicken soup in 100 degree weather, but I am — and not any kind of chicken soup but one that is crammed with veggies, pasta, and herbs, and this is what it looks like. And in a feeble attempt to make it healthy, I slid in 2 or 3…

Diane’s Chicken Wings

Love at first bite!  Super duper fingerlicking GREAT!  EASY to make — light and crunchy outside and flavorful and moist on the inside. Sweet, sour, salty and spicy–all the flavors of Vietnam.

Okay. So, as far as I’m concerned, a girl cannot have enough chicken wing recipes. I’m a wing kind of girl. Turkey at Thanksgiving? No, thanks — I’ll just take the wing. Slices of roast chicken? Nope — just the wings please. Every new recipe I find becomes my new fave. This is lipsmacking duh-duh-duhLIOCIOUS! These…

Make Again and Again: Sesame Chicken Peanut Noodles

I have an serious love affair with noodles — especially any kind of Asian noodles, like these for example. I think I could eat these 5 out of 7 nights as well as several times for breakfast because cold noodles are the best! Here you go! Eat ’em up. 1 ½ tablespoons red-pepper flakes 1 ½ tablespoons…

Zuni Cafe Roast Chicken with Bread Salad

I want there to be no peasant in my realm so poor that he will not have a chicken in his pot every Sunday. King Henry IV of France This just LOOKS like a law-haw-hawng recipe — but it’s absolutely the best roast chicken I’ve EVER had — SO worth the time — SO MAKE…
