Gluten-Free Chicken Marsala

By Heather Solos | August 12, 2013

Heather says: Like many people, I love chicken marsala. If you’ve gone gluten free, no worries, you don’t have to leave chicken marsala behind. This version is a simple variation on the classic, all you need is brown rice flour to use in place of wheat. I made this for company the other night and it…

What Kind of Chicken Should I Buy?

By Heather Solos | March 19, 2012

Heather says: There is an older post (and yes, I really need to retake the pictures) on How to Roast a Chicken here on Home-Ec 101. Over the weekend a commenter asked “What kind of chicken should I buy?” To be very clear, we’re talking about different kinds of chicken for cooking, not different kinds…

Balsamic Marinated Chicken Thighs

By Heather Solos | April 9, 2013

Heather says: This recipe for balsamic marinated chicken is sort of a repeat. Why? Because sometimes you don’t want to cook a whole chicken and grab the super-value pack of chicken thighs or leg quarters when they go on sale. 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.…

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…

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,…

How to Debone Chicken Thighs

By Heather Solos | October 2, 2008

Dear Home Ec 101, I’ve heard that you can substitute chicken thighs in some recipes that call for boneless skinless chicken breasts, but I am not sure what to do. How do you remove the bones? Signed, Boneheaded in Bonneville Heather says: It would be embarrassing for me to admit how long I sat here…

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…

How to Cut Up a Whole Chicken, a Knife Skills Tutorial

By Heather Solos | July 6, 2010

Heather says: Why would anyone want to cut up a whole chicken? It’s a useful skill to have, I tend to buy whatever is on sale and if whole chickens are on sale that week, then I load up. By buying a whole chicken, I have not restricted myself to one form of cooking or…

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…

    @HeatherSolos Thanks so much! They look delicious!

    @ajacksonmom That sounds wonderful. I just use this technique for dumplings: https://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!
