Chicken Bog Recipe

By Heather Solos | May 7, 2008

Heather says: Do you ever have a snippet from a TV show stay with you for eternity? That’s all I can think whenever I make chicken bog. Now that you’ve had a peek into my twisted little mind, let’s talk chicken bog. At first glance, some long time readers may say, “But Heather, that looks…

Garlic and Soy Chicken Thighs

Garlic and Soy Chicken Thighs

By Heather Solos | January 30, 2014

Heather says: The humble chicken thigh certainly doesn’t get as much attention as its counterpart the boneless skinless chicken breast.  In my area, boneless, skinless chicken breasts have been running in the neighborhood of $5 a pound on sale, which makes thighs much more attractive. This recipe is flexible, substitute low-sodium soy sauce if you…

Chicken Pilau

By Heather Solos | May 29, 2007

Heather says: This is one dish you won’t catch me trying to pronounce. Although I grew up here in the Lowcountry, I was not exposed to this dish until adulthood. As far as I am concerned, that is a crying shame. This meal is tasty, flexible and freezes well if stored properly. Feel free to…

Buffalo Chicken Dip

By Heather Solos | August 2, 2015

 Heather says: Buffalo chicken dip is a favorite around here. It’s also ridiculously simple and worth knowing how to make in case you’re ever invited to a sportsball  potluck type event. Go team go. I’ve had buffalo chicken on the brain recently and I was poking around Plain Chicken -a client from my day job…

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…

Chicken Picante

By Heather Solos | March 11, 2008

Heather says: Way back, a hundred years ago, I used to work for a Spanish restaurant. Yes, Spanish as in Spain. One of our top selling lunch dishes was very simple and not exactly Spanish, it was a variation on fettuccine Alfredo with chicken and sweet peppers. My husband requested this dish so often that…

This simple recipe is easily adaptable to use what is in your refrigerator and pantry. Deneice’s recipe  called for lima and cannellini beans, but as I had neither I…

    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!
