Roast Chicken is at least a once a month meal for my family. And tonight, I’m doing a herb roasted chicken, which is simple and back a ton of flavor. While I’m using thyme and rosemary as the primary herbs, you can use just about any fresh green herbs that you like. I finely chop them, add some butter to make a paste, and then rub that herb butter under the chicken skin.

Roast Chicken is a favorite of mine. And while a simple chicken, roasted off with nothing more than salt and pepper, is absolutely wonderful, there are fortunately hundreds of ways to make roast chicken is other interesting and exciting ways.
Like all pasta, I love cooking Ravioli, because it’s so easy to make hundreds of different, delicious recipes. And while making your own ravioli is pretty time consuming (although I love it), there are lots of great store bough brands, that will allow you to get a complete meal made in about 20 minutes. Here I do a recipe for Cheese Ravioli with Chicken and Peas.
I see people (including myself) cooking boneless skinless chicken breasts all the time….they are so simple to do, and have a ton of great uses. However, there’s always something special about cooking meat on the bone, and here, I’m going to show you how to roast off the perfect bone-in chicken breast.
Coq Au Vin sounds pretty intimidating, until you realized it’s just Chicken In Wine…how hard that can be? I’ll tell ya, it’s not hard at all, but it tastes so yummy and complex, you’ll be completely blown away! Traditionally, coq au vin was made with old, tough chickens (that couldn’t lay eggs anymore) that needed to be braised a long time to make them tender.
One way to jazz up a boring chicken breast is with a great sauce, which is exactly what I do with this Chicken Alfredo. Alfredo sauce is very simple to make, with just a few ingredients and it’s a perfect match for chicken. The cream in the sauce provides a bit of fat, that the lean chicken doesn’t have, and of course the flavor of alfredo sauce is almost magical. Just a little bit on the pl
Traditional basil pesto is one of my favorite pasta sauces, and I’m making a spaghetti pesto, or penne pesto every month or two. But I’ve recently added a twist to the traditional version, that I’m absolutely loving…Spaghetti with Broccoli Pesto. Broccoli pesto tastes a bit stronger/more flavorful than the standard basil pesto, and just like the standard, goes great with pasta.
Learning how to brine will benefit you not just for the Thanksgiving Turkey, but throughout the year. And fortunately, it is so simple, that with a quick read, and a view my “How to Brine” video, you’ll have it mastered in no time. With a good brine your recipe (whether it be pork, chicken or seafood) will turn out more tender, more juicy and more flavorful. So...why not start brining?
Really…is there anything you can’t do with chicken? Know some key cooking techniques and you can make a great chicken recipe with just about anything. Here, along with a couple boneless chicken breasts, I happen to have some fontina cheese, a tomota and a zucchini laying around, along with some hunger, and about 30 minutes later a recipe for Chicken Fontina was born. Fontina is a great chees
Chicken & Penne pasta is one of my all time favorite dishes, because there are about a thousand different ways you can change it up. In this recipe, I show how to make Chicken Penne Arrabiata, which is an Italian dish with spicy rich tomato sauce. The sauce, is similar to a standard marinara or pomodoro, but it’s spiked with some hot chili flakes and red wine vinegar. When combined with
