How to Roast Chicken

By Heather Solos | March 16, 2007

Heather says: Here at Home Ec 101 we get a lot of questions on how to stretch those grocery dollars. One of my personal favorites is to buy a whole chicken. You can get a lot of bang for your buck with one of these, just make sure you don’t buy one injected with anything…

Chicken Pot Pie Recipe: Fearless Friday

By Heather Solos | May 22, 2009

Heather says: My husband is always asking for chicken pot pie and I realized my avoidance is part of some bizarre personal boundary. (It has to do with the amount of work for a meal in relation to my own general enjoyment). So, both today and next week’s Fearless Friday are about me getting over…

Stewed Chicken: Comfort Food Classic

Stewed Chicken Recipe: A Comfort Food Classic

By Heather Solos | May 14, 2010

Heather says: This recipe for stewed chicken is a frequent request and a great use for those giant bags of leg quarters. Leg quarters on sale are a mixed blessing. I’m not a huge fan of dark meat, but with the right seasoning I can be persuaded. My usual go to is a recipe for…

Balsamic Marinated Chicken Thighs

By Heather Solos | April 9, 2013

Heather says: This recipe for balsamic marinated chicken is sort of a repeat. Why?

Like the garlic and soy chicken thighs, this recipe is simple, the only drawback is…

Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

By Heather Solos | May 2, 2011

Heather says: Buffalo chicken sandwiches are my weakness. I don’t know why, maybe it’s the combination of crunch, heat, and the cool of the blue cheese. Buffalo chicken sandwiches are a sometimes food, meaning I don’t pretend they are healthy and I won’t make them often, but when I do? Hoo boy, I enjoy them.…

Modifying Chicken Recipes

By Heather Solos | October 1, 2009

Dear Home-Ec 101, I’ve seen recipes for 40 garlic clove chicken, but they are mostly for a whole chicken. I’m trying to figure out how I can make it for my husband and I using chicken breasts. Any ideas how I can do this? (I’d like to bake it rather than putting it in the…

Pineapple Grilled Chicken

By Heather Solos | May 14, 2009

Heather says: I have friends who won’t touch bone-in chicken. I’ll admit it, I’m not a huge fan of leq quarters. What I am a fan of is any marinade that makes cheap chicken enjoyable. Short and sweet, this one does the trick. Ingredients: 10oz canned pineapple in its juice (about 1/2 a can) 1/2…

    @ajacksonmom That sounds wonderful. I just use this technique for dumplings: http://www.home-ec101.com/how-to-make-drop-dumplings/ and drop them into a regular chicken soup

    We love your chicken pot pie! Thank you for the recipe!! Do you have a chicken and dumplings recipe?

    Small addition to the pot pie: I’ve been adding one boiled egg and one small or med. sized red potato boiled and cut up. Yum!
