Spicy Thai Coconut Chicken Soup

Spicy Thai Coconut Chicken Soup

The Astonishing Allure of Thai Cooking Combined with the Irresistibly-priced Costco Rotisserie Chicken I cannot seem to pass up Costco’s Rotisserie Chicken.  At $4.99, I marvel at how it’s actually priced lower than its raw counterpart a few yards away in the store.  But regardless…

Weeknight Chicken Pot Pie

Weeknight Chicken Pot Pie

An old favorite takes on new flavors in just about 60 minutes Out here in the Hamptons, the day after Labor Day is called “Tumbleweed Tuesday”.  It is the day when the place completely clears out as everyone heads back to school and work. It…

Crispy Chicken Cutlets with Cherry Tomato Panzanella

Crispy Chicken Cutlets with Cherry Tomato Panzanella

What I love about this recipe, which is from Bon Appetit Magazine, is that it’s the perfect escape from winter.  The dish looks like it was made in high summer with its cherry tomatoes, pickled red onion and fistful of parsley leaves.  Then there’s the…

Braised Chicken with Asparagus, Peas and Melted Leeks

Braised Chicken with Asparagus, Peas and Melted Leeks

         A braise may not strike you as a Spring preparation at all.  Aren’t braises hearty affairs that build flavor by the hours they spend in the oven?  Aren’t they winter warmers and not something you’d expect to see any time after May 1st?  Well…

A simple Grilled Chicken Dinner with Arugula and Warm Chickpeas

         The grill has long since been put away.  But the grill pan does an admirable job of crisping the skin and giving us, if not the real thing, a taste of summer.  In this easy dish that takes under 30 minutes to make, the…

Chicken and Mushrooms

         This dish combines two of my favorite ingredients: moist, tender, crispy Chicken thighs and any kind of mushroom you like. If only I had been anywhere near The East End Mushroom Company (www.theeastendmushroomcompany) I would have chosen more exotic mushrooms from their selection of Shiitakes,…
