Adapted from The Kitchen Detective: A Culinary Sleuth Solves Common Cooking Mysteries with 150 Foolproof Recipes by Christopher Kimball, this is yummy! If using canned chicken broth, choose a low-sodium brand, or the sauce will be too salty. If using kosher chicken, skip the brine, the chicken is already salty. An English and French recipe.
We made this wonderful dish at Culinary Communion, with Chef Gabriel Claycamp. This recipe is a repeat favorite with class attendees, and they've been known to call Gabriel up years later, from halfway across the country, to replace the beloved recipe that they'd misplaced. :) Recipe posted with permission.
This is a quick and easy, but delicious meal. A sweet and tangy chicken. It can be done in the morning and placed in the oven when you get home from work. I definately recommend serving this with rice because the sauce is too good to pass up.
A Jamie Oliver recipe which I find quite delightful. Because I don't like dark meat, I make it with all chicken breasts--and they come out juicy and tender. The recipe says to add the olives with pits. I have--just remember to warn your guests.
This is posted in response to a request for "skewer" recipes. A real coincidence as this was being prepared on the food network by Nick Makris from Nick's Diner in Regina Sask - it looked SO GOOD I just had to post it. Use pork or lamb - serving with pita bread is optional but tzatziki is a must! Prep time includes a minimum of 2 hours for marinating.
I don't know where I go this recipe, but it has a very interesting mix of flavors that come together for great chicken. I usually double the the marinade and set half aside before I marinate the chicken. I cook the marinade I set aside at a low boil until reduced and has a syrupy consistency, stirring often. Baste chicken while it is grilling three or four times. I did not include marinating time in the prep time.
This is an adopted recipe that I selected because it so closely matches my tastes. I do not intend to alter the recipe as it has so many favorable reviews. Once I prepare it, I may annotate the directions based on my experience.
I adopted this recipe after Mean Chef (IHHDRO) left the site. His original comments were, "This is a very simple and delicious broiled chicken breast dish. It is from Rick Bayless. The flavor comes from the use of chipotles and creme fraiche." My original review stated, "Very easy, but wonderfully tasty meal. I used whipping cream, as creme fraiche is not available in my area. I also doubled the sauce and the spinach, as advised by *Shelly*. It was great. My only mistake was to add an extra chipotle to the mix...it was just a little spicy for my tastes, but my hubby had no complaints. There were no leftovers with this dinner." We have since made this many times and always enjoy it.
This is a deceptive recipe: quick and easy to make with a simple ingredient list but which really delivers the flavor. What more could you want from chicken and potatoes? I find one large lemon yields just about 1/4 cup juice. This recipe makes 4 servings, but my husband and I eat this easily between the two of us.
