Chicken Stock from Chicken Feet

By Heather Solos | May 8, 2009

Heather says: The point of this series is to show off our successes and failures. Please don’t be intimidated by pictures of pretty food here and on other blogs. If you go back through the archives you will see it has taken me over two years to become competent. We have just shy of 2000…

Easy Grilled Buffalo Wings

By Heather Solos | June 1, 2011

Heather says: Sometimes I go on food kicks. I don’t know why, not too long ago it was Tex Mex all the time. Right now, I just can’t get enough of buffalo sauce. While I would love to indulge in buffalo chicken sandwiches frequently, that’s just not a reasonable choice. As it gets hotter and…

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…

The Frozen Free Range Chicken Dilemma

By Heather Solos | September 17, 2010

Dear Home Ec 101, I’m moving to Virginia in about a month, and in my visits I discovered a wonderful little farm nearby that sells free-range, organic chickens. But, the only way to buy them is whole and frozen.  Generally, that’s wonderful!  I love cooking with whole chicken.  But, there are only going to be…

BBQ Rub

By Heather Solos | May 17, 2007

Heather says: I’ve developed a craving for BBQ. I’m searching for the perfect dry rub for slow roasted chicken. When slow roasting chicken, it is done at a lower temperature for a longer period of time. Due to time constraints I cooked this one for two hours at 300F and then turned the oven up…

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…

Creamy chicken and wild rice soup

Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

By Heather Solos | January 15, 2009

Heather says: This creamy soup is quite rich, perfect for a chilly evening spent calling Midwestern family and asking, “Hey, how’s the weather up there?” (It was -2F yesterday, sorry about that)   Yields: approximately 8 cups of soup Ingredients: 5 cups chicken broth 1 cup wild rice (If you aren’t a huge fan of…

Simple Chicken Curry

By Heather Solos | July 11, 2007

Heather says: This may not be the most traditional curry recipe available on the ‘net, but the kids love this mild version. My husband and I find it a pleasant change from our usual repertoire. It is also easily adapted to a kosher diet by substituting cultured soy for the sour cream. However, I have…

How to Butterfly or Spatchcock a Chicken

By Heather Solos | January 26, 2011

Heather says: Did you know there’s a way to increase the amount of crisp skin on your chicken while decreasing the cook time? I tell the truth, you just use a five minute technique called Spatchcocking -that sounds dirty, doesn’t it?- or butterflying and you’ll greatly increase the surface area of your roast chicken. Not…

This ain’t your grandma’s chicken salad

By Heather Solos | June 20, 2007

Dear Home Ec 101: What’s the best way to cook chicken if you are going to use it in chicken salad? The only ways I know how to cook it- baked, roasted, grilled- don’t seem right for that kind of use. Thanks! ~ Cluckin’ Clueless Heather says: I use each of the methods you list…

    @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!
