  • Braised Chicken with Carrots, Potatoes, and Thyme

    Ingredients

    2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs

    freshly ground pepper

    kosher salt

    sweet paprika

    2 1/2 tbsps olive oil

    1 1/4 purple onion (finely chopped)

    1 1/4 lbs red potatoes (about 2 inches, 5 cm. in diameter, quartered)

    10 carrots (halved lengthwise and then cut into 1 1/2-inch, 4-cm. pieces)

    1 1/4 tbsps flour (or gluten-free flour mix, for a gluten-free meal)

    1 2/3 cups low sodium chicken broth (11 fl. oz./330 ml.)

    1/2 cup dry vermouth (3 fl. oz./80 ml., or dry white wine)

    2 tbsps fresh thyme (minced)

    Directions

    Season the chicken lightly with salt and pepper and then generously with paprika. In a heavy large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm the oil. Add the chicken and cook until brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Transfer the chicken to a plate. Add the onion to the frying pan and stir. Add the potato quarters and carrots. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and saute until the vegetables are beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the flour mix and stir to coat. Gradually mix in the broth and vermouth. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Return the chicken to the pan and bring to a boil.

    Cover the pan, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer until the chicken and vegetables are cooked through, stirring and turning the chicken over occasionally, about 25 minutes. Mix in the thyme. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Divide the chicken and vegetables among 4 warmed plates and serve right away.

  • Braised French Onion Chicken

    Ingredients:

    3 tablespoons unsalted butter

    2 pounds onions, sliced into thin half-moons

    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

    4 garlic cloves, sliced

    2 small sprigs thyme, leaves only

    4-inch sprig rosemary

    2 cups chicken broth, divided

    1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

    2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

    3 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs

    2 ounces Gruyère cheese, finely grated or shaved (about 1 cup)

    Directions:

    Melt the butter in a deep 10-inch sauté pan over medium heat. When the butter has melted completely and foams up, add the onions. They will fill the pan to the top, at this point. Stir as you add the onions to coat them in the butter. Sprinkle lightly with salt and black pepper. Cook the onions for about 40 minutes over low or medium heat, stirring occasionally.

    When the onions have developed an evenly light beige color throughout, add the garlic, thyme leaves, and whole rosemary sprig, and cook for a few minutes more, stirring frequently. Turn the heat up to high and cook for a further 5 minutes, stirring frequently. You want dark, slightly burnt spots to appear on the onions, and for them to develop a rich mahogany color. When the onions get quite dark, add 1 cup of the beef or chicken broth. Add it slowly, stirring and scraping the pan vigorously to scrape up any burnt or stuck-on bits. When the liquid has been added, bring it back up to a simmer and simmer lightly for 5 minutes, or until it is somewhat reduced.

    Take the onions off the heat and pour them into a 3-quart oven-safe dish with a lid. (If you don't have a Dutch oven or another oven-safe dish with a lid, you can use a 9x13-inch baking dish. Just cover it tightly with a double layer of foil.)

    Heat the oven to 325°F.

    While the onions are cooking, brown the chicken. Heat another 10-inch or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Pat the chicken thighs dry and season lightly with kosher salt and black pepper. When the skillet is hot, add the thighs and brown for about 3 minutes on each side, 6 minutes total. When they've developed a golden-brown crust, remove from the pan and set on top of the caramelized onions in the baking dish.

    Add the remaining 1 cup broth to the pan. Stir vigorously, scraping up any browned bits on the bottom of the pan. Whisk in the balsamic vinegar and Dijon mustard. Simmer for about 5 minutes or until reduced by half. Pour this sauce over the chicken and onions, and put the lid on the baking dish. The chicken and onions will look quite saucy; there will be plenty of liquid in the baking dish.

    (At this point you can refrigerate the dish for up to 48 hours. Let it sit at room temperature for at least 15 minutes before baking, or else add about 5 minutes to the bake time.)

    Bake at 325°F for 30 minutes. Remove the chicken from the oven and turn the heat up to broil. Take the lid off the baking dish, and sprinkle the cheese evenly over the top of the chicken. When the broiler has heated up, return the dish to the oven and broil for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and golden on top.

    Serves 4 to 6

    Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 pound ground chicken
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 onion, diced
    • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
    • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

    • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    • 1 head butter lettuce

    • Stir in garlic, onion, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger and Sriracha until onions have become translucent, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in chestnuts and green onions until tender, about 1-2 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

  • Chicken Lo Mein

    Traditionally, this dish is made with thin lo mein noodles (available in Asian markets). Spaghetti or linguini can be substituted, or you can also use thicker noodles if desired. This Chicken Lo Mein recipe serves 2 - 4.

    Ingredients:

    1/2 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast

    .

    Marinade:

    2 teaspoons light soy sauce

    1 teaspoon Chinese rice wine or dry sherry

    1/4 teaspoon sesame seed oil

    1 teaspoon cornstarch

    .

    Sauce:

    3/4 cup chicken broth

    2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon oyster sauce

    3/4 teaspoon sugar

    .

    Other:

    1/2 pound Chinese noodles (thin or thick noodles are fine)

    1 cup shredded carrots (about 1 carrot)

    1 8-ounce can straw mushrooms

    3 tablespoons vegetable or peanut oil for stir-frying, or as needed

    1 teaspoon chopped garlic

    1/4 teaspoon salt

    Salt and pepper to taste, if desired

     

    Preparation:

    1. Cut the chicken into thin strips about 2 inches long. (It’s easiest to do this if the chicken is slightly frozen). Add the light soy sauce, rice wine or sherry, sesame oil and the cornstarch. Marinate the chicken for 20 minutes.

     

    2. While the chicken is marinating, prepare the other ingredients: Combine the sauce ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

    Cook the noodles in boiling water until they are cooked al dente (tender but still firm). This will take about 3 minutes for fresh noodles, and 4 - 5 minutes for dried noodles. Drain, rinse with cold water, and drain again.

     

    3. Cut the carrot into thin strips to match the chicken. Rinse the straw mushrooms under running water to remove any “tinny” taste. Drain thoroughly.

     

    4. Heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium high to high heat. Add the garlic, stir-fry for a few seconds until aromatic, then add the chicken. Stir-fry the chicken until it changes color and is 80 percent cooked. (If you need more oil, try adding 1 tablespoon water). Remove the chicken and clean out the wok.

     

    5. Heat 2 tablespoons oil and the salt in the wok. Add the carrots and mushrooms. Stir-fry for 1 minute, then add the chicken. Add the noodles, stirring to mix in with the other ingredients. Add the sauce into the wok, mixing with the other ingredients.

     

    6. Cook for 2 more minutes. Taste and add salt or pepper if desired. Serve hot.

  • Chinese Dutch Oven Chicken Casserole

    Ingredients

    1/4 cup soy sauce

    1 1/2 teaspoons sugar

    2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

    2 teaspoons cornstarch

    2 boneless chicken breasts, about 1 pound, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

    3 scallions, roughly chopped, plus extra to serve

    3 garlic cloves, minced

    1-inch piece fresh ginger, roughly grated

    2 ounces smoked sausage, such as Chinese lapchang or good Italian salami, cut into 1/4-inch cubes

    10 ounces fresh shiitake mushrooms, caps thinly sliced

    1 tablespoon canola or peanut oil

    2 cups Chinese long grain rice

    1 teaspoon salt

    4 cups chicken stock

    Directions

    Heat the oven to 350°F. Whisk together the soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, and cornstarch in a medium bowl. Stir in the chicken, scallions, garlic and ginger, and toss so that they are coated with the liquid. Place this mixture in the refrigerator and let marinate for at least 15 minutes while you cook the mushrooms.

    Place an oven-safe pan, like a 3-quart Dutch oven, over medium high heat on the stove. When it is hot, add the sausage and turn the heat down to medium-low. Let the sausage slowly release its fat. When the bottom of the pot is slick with the sausage fat, add the mushrooms. Turn the heat back up to medium high heat and let the mushrooms cook, without stirring them, for 5 minutes. Flip them over and cook for another 3 minutes.

    Add 1 tablespoon oil to the pot, and sauté the rice briefly to develop some toasty flavor (you don’t want to brown the rice here, just sauté it for 1 minute or so), then add the salt and the chicken mixture from the fridge. Pour in the stock. Bring to a boil.

    Turn off the heat, cover with a lid or with foil and bake for 45 minutes. Make sure to taste the rice for doneness before taking it out of the oven. Let stand 5 minutes, covered, before serving. Stir up the rice before serving, as the chicken and mushrooms will have risen to the top during baking (see photo below). Stir thoroughly so that they are incorporated throughout the rice.

    Garnish with chopped scallions and serve with extra soy sauce and chili garlic sauce, if desired.

    Serves 6

    • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
    • 12 ounces boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1/4-inch-thick, bite-size slices
    • 1 tablespoon finely shredded ginger
    • 1 teaspoon plus 1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine or dry sherry

  • One-Pot Cheesy Italian Pasta and Chicken

    Ingredients

    8 ounces baby spinach leaves, divided
    1 cup sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil and Italian herbs, drained (about 7 ounces)
    1 large yellow onion, sliced
    1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cut into 1/2" bite size pieces)
    6 garlic cloves, sliced
    1 pound dry linguine
    2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
    2 teaspoons kosher salt
    1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
    1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (This makes the meal very spicy!)
    4 cups (32 ounces) reduced sodium chicken stock
    1 cup (8 ounces) chardonnay wine
    4 ounces fresh Parmesan cheese, shredded

    Directions

    Combine 1/2 of the spinach with the tomatoes, onion, chicken, garlic, linguine, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper in a 5-quart Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Pour chicken stock and wine over top. Cover and bring to a boil.

    Cook 7-9 minutes until pasta is al dente (with a bite to it). Toss pasta with tongs occasionally to keep the pasta from sticking to the bottom of the pot. You will still have some liquid in the pan when the pasta is done cooking. This is going to make the base for our delicious cheese sauce.

    Turn off the heat and add the cheese to the pasta. Toss pasta with tongs until the cheese melts into the pasta. Toss in remaining spinach. Serve and enjoy!
