Chicken Enchilada Soup Recipe

There’s no craving quite like a craving for Mexican food. Unlike some other cravings, no substitute will do. My stomach isn’t satisfied until it’s placated with a tortilla full of beans, veggies and cheese. This chicken enchilada soup satisfies this craving almost as well as the real thing, and leaves you satisfied but not overstuffed.

Though chicken breasts are easier to shred, I prefer the dark meat of the drumstick and found that adding the chicken with the bone in, infused the soup with even more chicken flavor. As much as I hate using frozen vegetables, it seemed like the best option for the winter season – if you are making this dish in the summer, use fresh corn! If ripe avocados are available, they would be an excellent topping to your enchilada, adding creaminess to the soup’s hearty spice. Read More

The quest for the perfect roast chicken is an endless one for any home cook. Roasting the chicken itself is simple enough, but how does one perfectly achieve that crispy skin, that juicy meat, that sumptuous blend of spices that makes the recipe uniquely yours? Rotisserie chicken was always a classic in my house growing up, so when I began cooking at home I wanted to have a roast chicken recipe that friends and family would come knocking on my door for. After many tries, I think I’ve found my solution. Read More

A mid-summer spent cooking and traveling left me with a jar of pickled onions and a bottle of Jamaican jerk sauce. As much as I want to cling to these last remnants of summer, it’s time to put them to good use. But how to bring these two tangy treats together?

Jerk is both a seasoning and a style of cooking native to Jamaica. Traditionally meat, chicken, or pork is either marinated or rubbed in a seasoning made of various spices and the key ingredient: Scotch bonnet peppers. Read More

Buttermilk Battered Chicken Recipe

Buttermilk is more often than not the crucial ingredient to tender, moist fried chicken. The rich creaminess of buttermilk adds depth and moisture to any recipe, but actually contains less fat and cholesterol than regular milk. It is the liquid that remains after milk has been churned into butter, so it is slightly thicker with a more-developed but not overwhelming flavor. Marinating your chicken in buttermilk for a few hours ensures that it stays moist while it cooks, while adding onions, garlic, and hot sauce packs each bite with bold flavor. Baking the chicken is a healthy alternative to deep-frying; the cornflake crust remains crunchy and seals in the marinade’s moisture but is also lighter than an oil-fried crust. Make sure you place your chicken on a rack and not directly on a baking sheet so that the meat cooks on all sides and the crust stays crispy. Serve with coleslaw or potato salad and green beans.

Berries and a cold drink on a porch is my idea of an ideal summer snack. This cocktail blends two of these into one icy glass…plus bacon for an extra treat. How to dispose of the rendered fat from bacon is the bacon-lover’s continual problem. I say, why get rid of it? Using the rendered fat ensures that no bacon deliciousness goes to waste. It can be used in cooking, baking, and even drinking. Read More
