Air Fryer Sweet and Sour Chicken Wings

14 November 2020

Coating the wings with this baking powder rub yields perfectly crispy, golden brown, and tender wings. They’re just waiting to be sauced to your preference, and this time it’ll be sweet and sour sauce. Put out plenty of napkins, because they are sticky.

Baked Chicken Shawarma

6 November 2020

Middle Eastern foods rely on an abundance of spices and seasonings to create richly flavored food. Shawarma usually involves a stack of meat on a grill, but this recipe calls for a layer of chicken thighs on a sheet pan, in the oven. Use the broiler briefly, at the end of the baking time, to achieve extra flavor from the light char. Chicken can be served on steamed white rice, or sliced and served in a pita or flatbread with tomatoes, lettuce, and your favorite tzatziki or tahini sauce.

Chicken Piccata Casserole

2 October 2020

I love chicken piccata, but I don’t love cooking it on top of the stove. Get the great piquant taste of chicken piccata, without the spatters, in the oven! It’s more convenient, and it frees you up to tend to the other parts of dinner, like some tasty pasta, and maybe a vegetable or a salad.

Garlic Rice Roast Chicken

27 August 2020

We’ve done chicken next to rice, on rice, and in rice, but I believe this is the first time we’re going to reverse it and do the rice in the chicken-and no, not stuffed in the cavity. This recipe involves stuffing the rice under the skin, and the results really were spectacular.

Chicken and Mushrooms in Cream Sauce over Zoodles

24 August 2020

Zucchini noodles, or “zoodles” stand in for pasta in this rich, flavorful dish. Chicken, mushrooms, shallots, and sun-dried tomatoes cook in a cream and wine sauce that will invite you back for more! Garnish with fresh basil.

Smoked Chicken Drumsticks

24 August 2020

These smoky chicken drumsticks are so versatile and easy! I like to use applewood chips or other fruit woods, but maple is also a great choice. Use your favorite BBQ rub. Letting the drumsticks air dry in the refrigerator overnight, combined with a higher smoking temperature, helps prevent rubbery skin that is common when smoking chicken. Serve with your favorite BBQ sauce, if desired.
