Chicken Marsala

By Heather Solos | December 9, 2010

Heather says: There’s a rule of thumb when cooking dishes that involve wine: don’t use anything you wouldn’t drink. What if you don’t drink wine or what if you just don’t like the kind of wine called for in a recipe? I know if you look at my wine rack, you’ll usually only find cab,…

Grilled Chicken Burritos / Chimichangas

By Heather Solos | June 13, 2011

Heather says: This method is probably only useful if you have a propane grill. I wouldn’t want to go through the trouble of lighting a charcoal grill just to grill these chicken burritos for a few moments. However it is well worth wandering outside to slap these on a gas grill or even inside on…

Oven Fried Chicken

By Heather Solos | February 22, 2009

Heather says: This recipe is versatile, use any 3 – 5lbs of bone in chicken, use breasts, thighs, or a cut up a whole chicken. If you have young children they can help with shaking, but only if your container has a tight fitting lid or said child is old enough to understand they need…

Crockpot Friendly Sticky Chicken Recipe

By Heather Solos | August 18, 2015

Heather says I honestly don’t know why this recipe is called “sticky chicken”, I have the feeling it is a recipe that has evolved over the years and doesn’t exactly resemble its origins or maybe it was a family nickname. This recipe for chicken in the crockpot was a favorite on a message board I frequented…

Chicken, Roasted and Marinated in Balsamic

By Heather Solos | January 20, 2010

Heather says: This recipe for roast chicken tastes like effort marinated in herbs and vinegar. Really, it’s a throw together and toss in the oven kind of dish.  I won’t tell if you don’t, sometimes I like to pretend I’m working harder than I am. The chicken can be set to marinate the night before…

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…

Fried Chicken Thighs, Marinated in Homemade Italian Dressing

By Heather Solos | March 30, 2010

For a full breakdown on exactly how to fry chicken, I invite you to check out Buttermilk Fried Chicken. Heather says: We don’t fry chicken often, but sometimes when chicken thighs are well under $1 per pound the temptation is overwhelming. Recently we had a long conversation on the hidden sources of high fructose corn…

Chicken Gumbo

By Heather Solos | October 6, 2011

Heather says: It’s fall and it’s finally cool enough to switch from salads back to soups and stews and I’ve been waiting for months to make this recipe for chicken gumbo. This recipe is a good use for those cheap leg quarters I mention from time to time. This version of chicken gumbo calls for…

    @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!
