An Anatomical Guide to Chicken Wings
My favorite part of a chicken is, hands down, the wing. Whether I’m nibbling on one as I carve up a whole roasted chicken, or feasting on a messy pile of saucy buffalo wings, they’re fun to eat and oh-so-satisfying to a dark-meat lover like me. If you look closely, whole chicken wings are actually composed of three parts. Do you know what they are called? I consider chicken wings a bit of a delicacy since there are only two per chicken, but they pack a ton of flavor.

How To Sear Meat Properly
Searing meat is 100% about building flavor. And oh, what flavor it is! When that meat hits a scorching hot pan, the surface instantly begins caramelizing. In your stew or braise or roast, this translates into the kind of deep, savory flavor that we crave on an almost a cellular level. This is the flavor that makes us want to lick our plates clean. No sear, no plate-licking good times. Here’s how to do it. Searing meat might seem like an unnecessary and time-consuming step in a recipe.

Recipe: Roasted Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Goat Cheese & Garlic
This recipe is a classic example of cooking by feel. I had some goat cheese left over from an appetizer, and I found fresh, green garlic at the farmer’s market. So I came up with a way to use them together — stuffed inside some bone-in chicken breasts. It’s really remarkable the way a little garlic and goat cheese can transform a plain and unglamorous chicken breast! I often roast bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts when I’m not up for handling an entire bird.

Recipe: Crispy Prosciutto-Wrapped Drumsticks
I have long been a fan of roasted chickens, both for their flavor and convenience. What I’ve only recently discovered, though, is how with a little planning, ready-to-eat chicken can serve as a base for several weeknight meals that are each a unique dinner. So, I’ve upgraded from my default serving of plain chicken with a simple green salad to buying two prepared birds and using each part in an easy yet interesting way, really taking advantage of the work already done for me.
