French-style whole roast chicken with the most delicious creamy tarragon sauce! This is a wonderful Sunday or company meal served with heaps of fluffy mashed potatoes, a green leafy salad or seasonal vegetables, and some crusty bread. Very easy recipe that can be made either in the oven, -or- in the crock-pot. Adapted from the Le Creuset website.
A wonderful marinade for chicken. If you don't have Miracle Whip, mayonnaise may be substituted. I usually marinate chicken in the marinade at least 30 minutes before cooking. However, I once took chicken sitting in the marinade to a cook-out, and other people there who had brought their own chicken started dipping their chicken in my left-over marinade to coat, then barbecuing right away without waiting for it to marinate. It was still delicious! I've found I can coat over a dozen chicken pieces with a single recipe of the marinade. These days I make this without the Tbs of salt when making it just for myself, but people's tolerance for low salt varies widely and so I've posted it the way I've found suits most people best. I'd say be guided by your own tastes when it comes to amount of salt used.
From www.TopSecretRecipes.com I had this wonderful dish with my sister in Florida. Now I can make it at home. I had a hard time getting the sauce to thicken so I added cornstarch. This recipe reflects that. It also makes a LOT of sauce.
I searched and finally found this recipe on the internet. It is a copycat of the Bourbon Chicken sold in Chinese carry-outs in my hometown. This recipe is so good that my sons gobble it up leaving me just a spoonful. Their excuse was they thought I had eaten. Editor's Note: Named Bourbon Chicken because it was supposedly created by a Chinese cook who worked in a restaurant on Bourbon Street.
i used to make this all the time when i lived by myself, it's one of the first meals i used to make when i just starting out on my own. it makes a great authentic tasting mexican dish. it is orginally from the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, with a few variations. i had to refer back to it, because i am more of a "dump" cook, and nolonger use the measurements when preparing this.
People love this sesame chicken. It tastes as close to the restaurant version as I think you can get. It is from about.com I found this a couple of years ago on that site, and BF requests it a tleast 2-3 times a month. it really is great, and although there are a lot of ingredients, it's basically simple to prepare.
It's funny, I lived in Mississippi for a long time very close to Alabama and I never had this while I was there. It just figures that I would wait years to taste this deliciously different barbecue, which is creamy, tangy, and nicely smoky. The sauce will be thinner than what you normally expect with a tomato based sauce but it has just enough umph to make this chicken special. Now that my family has tried this, they wonder where it has been all their life!!!
For those who want just enough for dinner, just breast meat, no leftovers--a succulent way to roast a chicken breast and have some stuffing too. From Chicago's Cafe Matou. Think of the panade as a base--be creative--add what you like. Note:
If you can't get whole breasts, buy two chickens, bone out the whole breast, keeping the skin in tact, and use the balance of the birds for fricasees, stock, or whatever.
Adapted from a recipe I found in a magazine. You can serve rice on the side if you must but it really isn't needed this makes very generous, healthy portions. The nutrional numbers on this recipe will be a little off because you throw away the marinade but it is in the ingredients (hope that makes sense, lol)
