Fresh lemongrass can be found at Asian markets, specialty greengrocers, and at many supermarkets. If unavailable use dried lemon grass (soak in hot water for 20 minutes). Or use 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest. Taken from Steven Raichlen's "Big Flavor Cookbook."
I have been making this for over 10 years and is the most requested recipe I have! This is everyone's favorite chicken dish I make! It's a nice change from "ordinary" chicken! Goes well with steamed broccoli. (Note: This is a "Diane" recipe, therefore has a mustard taste to it!!)
This is real comfort food. A very different stuffing, one my family loves. I usually just remove Italian sausage from it's casing. If I remember correctly I believe I originally found this recipe in a Southern Living magazine years ago.
I love this recipe and could eat it at least once a week! I think it tastes very close to the brown sauce that is served in Chinese restaurants. I have made it with and without the veggies with great success.
I'm not sure where I found this recipe, but it has become one of our family favorites. It is so quick and easy to put together and does not require marinating time. This is excellent for summer meals because it's so light. Also great sliced over salad greens for a complete meal.
This is the BEST gumbo I have ever had. (No okra!) Hearty and classic. If you can't find andouille, use a good smoked sausage or kielbasa. The gravy is so rich, have lots of bread to sop it up. A friend gave me this recipe, so I don't know the origin.
If you like fried chicken this one is excellent and well worth the time to make! The chicken has to marinate in the buttermilk so you can start it a day or two ahead. this recipe comes from Bon Appetit, 1998.
