Recipe for a Crowd: Honey & Chili Chicken Thighs with Creamy Cilantro Sauce
When I started planning my All-American Beer Bottling Party, I knew I wanted a main dish that would come together easily and quickly, that would feed a crowd of hungry beer bottlers, and that would go with — or be made with! — beer. These chicken thighs have it all. They’re tossed with honey, chili powder, and a splash of amber ale and then quickly roasted in the oven, where the honey and beer bake down to a sticky glaze.

Grill Recipe: Grilled Chicken Legs with Dijon & White Wine Glaze
Grilling can seem like a lot of hard work if you are not in-the-know. Growing up in the South, I spent most of my youth presuming it was a man’s activity — all of those ‘secrets’ and ‘rituals’ seemed best left alone by the ladies. And while, yes, when it comes to charcoal grills, smokers, and Big Green Eggs, there can be a certain amount of finesse involved, the actual act of cooking over fire doesn’t have to be engulfed in a shroud of mystery.

One-Pot Recipe: Braised Chicken Thighs with Bell Peppers and Onions
There are perhaps two universal truths that all of us (non-vegetarian) writers at The Kitchnshare: a mutual love for flavorful, inexpensive chicken thighs and for rich, hearty braises. When the first is paired with the second, their powers know no bounds. And a braise might sound like more of a cold-weather meal, I really love the savory combination all year round — plus it’s an easy one-pot dinner for weeknights.

Dinner Party Recipe: Chicken Marsala
A dear friend recently celebrated his birthday by hosting a big night out on the town (his extravaganzas more often than not end with very late night dance parties). I am more of a homebody myself, so I opted out of his wild and crazy festivities and offered to cook him a quiet dinner instead. Planning a heartfelt meal is the easiest way for me to show I care. I always ask dinner guests if they have any personal requests. For my friend, it was no pork and no booze.

Easy Dinner Recipe: Viking Chicken
I’ve been doing a lot of cooking this week, and it’s been really nice. When my marriage ended a year ago, I was suddenly thrown back into cooking by myself again, and at first I was lost at sea. I had forgotten everything I’d known — the touch and the feel of cooking — that I’d had ten years earlier when I was single.

Recipe: Baked Chicken with Bacon
My friend Aura is a very good cook. She lives in Florida with her husband, Leo, and two adorable (I do not use that word glibly) children. When I think of Aura’s cooking, I think of fruit salads, smoothies, and the freshest dishes from her native Guatemala — light, healthy, and driven by Florida’s tropical fruits and vegetables. So I was surprised, one winter evening a few years ago, to sit down at her table and find a big, bubbling casserole of chicken wrapped in bacon.

Recipe: Herbed Panko Chicken
Chicken always gets a bad rap: it’s either declared boring, bland, or just plain bad. Well not in my book. Granted I don’t cook the same few recipes day in and day out, but still, I always enjoy it when I make it. I especially love breading chicken, whether it’s for chicken Parmesan, Milanese, or my signature Provencal. No matter the variation, the steps are always the same—flour, then egg, then breading. Cook until golden.

Recipe: Chicken & Artichokes in Wine Sauce
When I was a kid, my mother took a cooking class with Giuliano Bugialli and learned how to make this dish. It tastes so rich and divine that you’d never suspect it’s so economical and quick to make! She’d let me request a special meal for my birthday, and I often requested this dish. Tester’s Notes: Kathryn published this recipe way back in 2009, and I’ve had it on my to-make list since then. I finally got around to it and wow was that overdue.

Recipe: Master Cleanse Chicken
Once upon a time long ago, a friend of mine told me she was doing a crazy thing called the Master Cleanse; for something like thirty days she consumed only a tonic made from water, lemon juice, cayenne pepper and maple syrup. This, of course, went down in California. Since then I’ve tried the Master Cleanse once, for three miserable days, and bombed.

Recipe: Crispy Chicken Thighs & Warm Bread Salad
By now it’s probably safe to assume that you’ve heard of the famous Zuni Roast Chicken. Considering the viral nature of the food blogging world, who hasn’t?! I’ve tried it and it’s fabulous, but I’m not going to lie: I just don’t always have the time to put that much effort into dinner. (Please tell me I’m not the only one.) And while their chicken truly is a show-stopper, it’s the bread salad that really leaves me hankering for more.

Recipe: Tarragon Chicken Fricassee
Winter has finally dipped its pinky toe down South, y’all, and we’ve been celebrating with nightly fire pits and lots of extra calories. To heck with New Year’s resolutions when its cold outside, right! That’s not saying this Tarragon Chicken Fricassee is downright sinful, but it sure does warm the bones. And the “splash” of heavy cream at the end doesn’t exactly hurt. But what is a fricassee exactly?

Recipe: Spatchcocked Ricotta Chicken
While blessed with many attributes, a roasted chicken has its drawbacks. One biggie is that it usually limits your guest list to about four people tops. But chickens are adaptable creatures and open to being flexible. One way to stretch a chicken, quite literally, is to spatchcock it (a fun way of saying butterfly), stuff its gills and other tender parts, literally expanding the bird to feed more people.

Best Chicken Breast Ever? Try This Semi-Sous Vide Method
Despite the numerous and proven ways to cook perfectly moist and tender chicken breasts, I still manage to bungle it up with disturbing frequency.What do you think of this sort-of sous vide method from Hank Shaw and Simply Recipes? I’m thinking it’s worth a shot.

Help! Why Did My Chicken Soup Turn Into Jell-o?
Q: For Christmas I received a Lodge cast iron Dutch oven and took the opportunity on my snowed-in Monday to roast my first chicken. On Tuesday I made a very simple first soup. The soup came out pretty good, if I do say so myself, but when I put them into the fridge for the night they turned gelatinous!

Recipe: Chicken and Dumplings
Like most Southerners, my earliest food memories come straight from my grandmother’s kitchen. It was in that Georgia kitchen I learned to make her famous chicken and dumplings. I vividly remember her digging a well in the flour and slowly mixing in the milk with her hand, then quickly rolling out the dough with the ease of a pro. Under her watchful eye, I was allowed to cut the dumplings into rectangles and plop them into the boiling water.

Recipe: Easy Chicken Marsala
This easy dish reminds me very much of my Chicken and Artichokes in Wine Sauce recipe, except it has mushrooms and Marsala wine. This makes a wonderful main dish that is hearty and filling, but is also elegant enough to impress dinner guests. I like to serve this with some polenta and a green salad.Easy Chicken MarsalaIngredients:1/4 cup all-purpose flour1/2 tsp. salt1/4 tsp. ground black pepper4 skinless and boneless chicken breasts, cut in 1-inch chunks4 tbsp. butter4 tbsp.

The Naughty Way to Roast a Chicken
Last week I went to a press lunch showcasing a collection of snazzy Staub cookware that Williams-Sonoma will start carrying this summer. The chefs prepared the meal almost exclusively in giant Staub slow-cookers (or cocottes, as they call them) and grill pans. That was cool, but what really caught my eye was this phallic vertical roaster awkwardly perched in the corner of the kitchen, and naturally I started thinking about chickens.

Recipe: Spicy Roasted Chicken Thighs with Miso and Ginger
I think that boneless, skinless chicken thighs may just be the perfect meat. They’re inexpensive; even responsibly-raised meat is only a few dollars a pound. They cook quickly, and they have a melting, tender texture no matter what you do to them. I’ve roasted, grilled, and pan-fried chicken thighs, and they are always quick, easy, and delicious.

Recipe Review: Gwyneth Paltrow’s Quick Roast Chicken
I thought Gwyneth Paltrow’s recipe for roast chicken with potatoes from her website GOOP looked interesting, so I decided to test it in my own kitchen. The verdict? It’s quite good, actually. Just the kind of recipe to have on hand for when you want a casual but delicious meal in less than an hour. Read on for more details.The recipe calls for the chicken to be partially deboned and roasted with lemon, fresh herbs, garlic, and a tumble of peeled and blanched potatoes.

Recipe: Lemon Garlic Chicken
When Emma write her post on Slow-Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken a few years ago, I started drooling immediately. Unfortunately, I don’t have a slow cooker, but I took a look at the ingredient list and hacked my own recipe together using a baking dish and the oven!

Recipe: Coconut Milk Chicken
Since falling in love with Jamie Oliver’s Chicken in Milk recipe, I’ve wanted to try another take on the concept and simmer a whole chicken in coconut milk. How decadent! Yesterday afternoon I had my chance when the weather in New York turned chilly and a friend with a two-week-old baby called hungry.It was fantastic. Imagine a succulent chicken bathed in a thick, sweet sauce with herbal citrus notes, alongside gorgeous little pink potatoes.

Ketchup With a Kick: Add Curry Powder!
We recently experienced our first, glorious encounter with curry ketchup. Served with fries at a restaurant, it initially seemed like a gimmick, but with each subsequent bite, we became increasingly addicted to the bittersweet sauce. By the next day, it was all we could think of and we set out to learn more about this condiment.

Light Eating: Braised Chicken with Shallots
This photo, and everything about the accompanying recipe, too, makes our mouths water. Eating light doesn’t mean avoiding meat entirely; protein is still essential, and chicken thighs are a frugal, tasty way to put it in your diet. But you do still want to avoid heavy sauces and lots of fat, which is where we come back to this recipe.The recipe is simple. Brown a pack of boneless, skinless chicken thighs. Then create a base sauce with some shallots, garlic, dry mustard, and wine.

Kitchen Hack: Blow-Dry Your Chicken Before Roasting
We came across this strange yet sensible tip over at the blog Domestigeek, and we’re curious if anyone has tried it! Since you get the best and crispiest chicken skin when the chicken has been thoroughly dried, this does make sense…When we roast a chicken we usually pat it dry and then salt it and put it in the fridge, a la the Zuni method.

April Fools Day Recipe: Is This Really a Bowl of Cereal?
Our favorite April Fools Day food tricks are more nice than naughty – the classic idea of serving foods that look like other foods. You’ve probably seen the meatloaf “iced” with mashed potatoes to look like a cake. Maybe you’ve even seen mashed potatoes and gravy in a parfait glass, mounded up to look like a butterscotch sundae.This year, we were looking for a new trick to truly fool our favorite people. Did we fool you?

Recipe: Lemon Chicken Ballotine with Ricotta and Fennel Confit
The somewhat fancy name for this ballotine of chicken is deceiving. This is a straightforward way to stuff thin chicken breasts and cook them while leaving the meat still moist – often a problem in oven-roasted recipes. Here the breasts don’t go in the oven. They’re pounded thin, stuffed with fennel confit, and lightly braised in white wine. This leaves them moist and tender – it also leaves your oven off, in this hot weather.
