This is a recipe I put together one night with some chicken leg quarters I had - it was such a hit! Super delicious and so easy (not to mention inexpensive!). I have made it many, many times since, for family and friends, and even people who generally "only like breasts" love this. It really works best with meaty bone in thighs, leg quarters, and you can use breasts, but I would leave the skin on!!!!
This is Jacques Pepin's recipe. The resulting chicken is moist, soft, and flavorful. Use a large non-stick frying pan. If cilantro is too strong for your taste, substitute with parsley or sage. If we dont have cilantro, we prefer finely chopped sage or parsley for this recipe. In Europe, cilantro is coriander.
A juicy golden chicken with luscious sauce, requiring a minimum of effort. The lemon flavor is not overpowering, but definitely present. Pairs perfectly with mashed potatoes. This recipe comes from a Dutch language cookbook I recently purchased entitled "Mediterraans: Culinair genieten op z'n best" which translates to MEDITERRANEAN: CULINARY ENJOYMENT AT ITS BEST. All the recipes are anonymous so I can't give credit to it's author.
I made this for my BF's birthday.. he loved it.. so did all my guests! I served this with angel hair pasta. It can be made ahead, then reheated on low heat. Or you can let the stew cook on low heat for 4 hours. (the cooking time is just an estimation, the longer you simmer it, the more tender the meat will be)
Asian influenced chicken using apricots, wine, ginger, garlic, basil, teriyaki be made as a main meal or as appetizers using only wings that's cut at the joints. Serve with white rice and a green salad.
I love chicken, pasta, roasted garlic, roasted onions and...well, this was the result! Choose a pasta that holds sauce well like small shells, bowties, penne or spirals...or a combination!
(NOTE: We prefer serving this dish somewhere between room temperature and warm, which is what it becomes when mixed together.) Time estimate does not include chilling, which isn't necessary, but does allow the flavors to blend better.
Our favorite recipe from our favorite Syrian-Lebanese cookbook, "Foods from Biblical Lands."The actual name is Djaj ma' limoon wa za' tar, but the kids call it "Arabic Chicken" and ask for it frequently. Save the leftover cooking juices to put over rice, potatoes, etc. (Actually, we use the marinade on potatoes, zukes, green beans..whatever we have and can throw in the oven). It's one of my standard potluck dishes and always gets raves (I use smaller chunks of chicken when cooking and then layer it over a 9x13 pan of rice pilaf for an easy self-serve dish). Also works to use packages of boneless, skinless chicken breasts (be careful not to overcook!). I've even been pressed for time and not broiled it and liked it just as much, or used it as marinade for grilled chicken...hard to mess this one up!
