My reverse-engineered recipe for replicating KFC's 'Original Recipe' chicken at home. Yields 8-10 pieces whole fried chicken, or up to 16 drumsticks. For a bulk mix seasoning for quick and easy breading, use Recipe #453973. PLEASE NOTE: The Nutritional Information listing here is inaccurate -- since only a fraction of flour and salt actually end up in the finished product. So be aware -- the suggested sodium, sugar, carbohydrate and calorie levels are ridiculously exaggerated!
Ever crave those restaurant style chicken fingers? Why pay restaurant prices for one serving when you could pay the same price for an entire meal. You'll have to vary the spices to your taste. The spices listed is how we makes these at home. Serve with buffalo wing sauce, honey mustard or BBQ sauce for dipping.
Adapted (liberally) from Simply THAI Cooking, this is a favorite in our house, as testified by the badly stained page in my cookbook. Can also sub pork for the chicken. Change vege to suit your taste - green beans are nice instead of bok choy. Prep all ingredients, including the sauces, before starting to cook.
This is so tasty, and it's a nice variation of "chicken, again?" Easy to make. Serve with dipping sauce--my daughter likes BBQ sauce and DH likes to dip these into blue cheese dressing. Nice appetizer for parties, too.
Cut this out of our local newspaper eons ago and finally got around to trying it. I loved the fact that the author made it so simple to follow with approximate times for each step so that even the newest cooks could attempt it. Medium high seemed too high on my gas range and everything was cooking too quickly so I went to medium. Other than that, it was easy to follow. We really enjoyed the flavor because we love olives and capers. Next time I'm going to try adding some artichoke hearts!
This is a great sandwich to have for a light lunch , even kids will like it. I found this in a Canadian living mag. last year and just found the recipe again in a box of papers. Hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.
Delicious, braised chicken thighs from The Neely's on Food Network. Gina Neely claims that your man will love this one. The chicken is so moist and tender. I think the herbs and seasonings are a little strong, so I've indicated a range for the amounts. I have also subbed herbs de provence for both thyme and rosemary, and really like the results. I prefer to use a total of 1 tsp dried herbs de provence and 1/2 TBS of lemon pepper. And I like to add 1/2 tsp sugar to balance out the acidity in the canned tomatoes. Serve over hot buttered rice. I'm also going to try this with pork chops.
Really this is such an easy recipe I wasn't going to even bother posting it, I have been making this for years and when you can't barbecue outside this is the next best thing! --- Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce works really well or use your own favorite, I most always use my recipe#232433 and prepare the sauce a day ahead --- I did not list the amounts for the seasoned salt and garlic powder as I never measure but probably use about 2 teaspoons each for all the chicken pieces, I usually use about 2 cups sauce but a little more or less is fine -- boneless, skinless chicken breasts work well also but cooking time will need to be reduced, you will *love* this!
I got this recipe from my church cookbook. I made it a lot for my boys when they were very young. They loved it.
*Added note: I think the kind of rice you use affects this recipe quite a bit.
A sticky rice will absorb a lot of liquid, while a converted rice
will not. I'm not sure, but I think you could adjust the liquid
accordingly. I always use a more sticky rice.
This is from Cook's Illustrated (America's Test Kitchen) The Best Light Recipe. It's shockingly good. The sauce is also fantastic on fish tacos.
EDIT: THIS RECIPE IS AN APPETIZER. It will not magically turn 2lbs of chicken into a full meal for 10 people. You may serve it as a main course, but please adjust your expectations or multiply the measurements.
You will need thirty 6- or 8-inch bamboo (or wooden) skewers for this recipe. The cooking time will depend on the strength and type of your broiler. Under-the-oven drawer-style broilers tend to take a few minutes longer than in-oven-style broilers. A small clove of minced garlic (about 1/2 teaspoon) can be substituted for the garlic powder in the sauce, if desired.
I have tried and tried for years to get this recipe from my favourite Chinese Szechuan Restaurant and there it is in today's newspaper!!! We have even had a Recipezaar get togethers to try and pick the ingredients!
From Double Eight Chinese Restaurant in Broadbeach. Thanks to Joan and John Mei.
Can also be called Kung Pao Chicken or Gong Bao Chicken but I have gone with the original restaurant name.
From Emeril Lagasse Emeril Live show, this has gotten great reviews! This is served at the Marley Cafe in Orlando, Florida. This is traditionally served with cucumber sauce and yucca fries(you can sub french fries). I have given the recipe for the sauce. Prep time includes marinating overnight. This is also popular in Florida.
I was watching the Food Network one day, and there were two episodes which focused on Moroccan style dishes. They both sounded really good, so over the next few months, I fused the two main recipes into one. This is really nice served with couscous, roasted acorn squash, and a creamy mint yoghurt sauce.
Blasting with high heat will shrink the skin and seal in all the juices to create an extremely moist and tender chicken with lovely crispy skin - and it will be on your table in about an hour. This method will also work with a larger chicken, but cooking time will need to be increased. You may adjust all seasonings to taste. If you are not a lemon lover, then you may omit the lemon juice. You really can use whatever seasoning that you like for this. I like to use seasoned salt. Make certain to use a fork and poke holes all over in the lemon, then place it into the cavity of the chicken. Roast roast as stated. The chicken with be moist and have a faint lemon flavor.

This marinade also works great with pork! You can also add in 1-1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt if desired, the longer you marinade the more flavor your meat will have, if you are not a garlic-lover then omit garlic.
