Spatchcock Chicken

By Heather Solos | May 28, 2008

Heather says: I have said it before, but whole chickens are often a great buy.  I am a huge fan of cooking once and eating several times, but how do you reap the benefit when it is is too warm for the oven?  You grill it, of course.  Rather than cutting the bird into parts…

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…

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…

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,…

    @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!
