Low Carb Bacon Chicken Crock Pot Chowder

In the strictest interpretation of culinary terms, a chowder is a classification of soup that contains large chunks of protein and vegetables in a cream-based broth.  In the northeast, hearty seafood and clam chowders with diced potatoes are common.  In the southwest, chowders are made with choirzo, chicken and very often, corn instead of potatoes. 

Lo Carb Chicken Milanese with Sautéed Zucchini

In 2012, I posted a recipe for Paillard of Sirloin Milanese served with a tomato relish, found here. Although I didn’t write it into the title, it was also low carb and substituted soy flour for wheat flour that would be found in the original Italian recipe – which would be made with veal, not

Hasselback Baked Chicken Breasts

My Number One Fan ran across this interesting recipe on the Pillsbury website, which is even more interesting because it contains no Pillsbury products in the ingredients whatsoever, just a strong suggestion that you serve it along side Pillsbury Crescent Rolls.  The term “Hasselback” is generally used in tandem with potatoes, a dish that was

Chicken Salad

Like many so-called classic recipes, chicken salad and its origins are debatable.  The current narrative is that chicken salad came about after the invention of mayonnaise, which food historians place sometime in the early eighteenth century in France.  Etymology of the name is obscure but some believe it originated from the provincial French town of

Weekday Chicken in the Oven Recipes

People run pretty hard during the week and so, given the incredible versatility of chicken, it isn’t surprising that just about everyone has at least one, if not several, go-to chicken recipes that can be prepared quickly and popped in the oven for an easy weeknight supper. Here are a couple that we’ve been making

Chicken Florentine

“Florentine” in culinary parlance means something prepared in the style of the Florence region of Italy, and the Internet takes a lot of liberty with what is generally considered a classic preparation that has two features: fresh spinach that has been sauteed in butter and Mornay Sauce. A Mornay Sauce is a Béchamel Sauce with

Low Carb Airfryer Fried Chicken

I’ve been on a quest to find the best substitute for Southern-style fried chicken, the kind that has been dredged in milk and eggs and seasoned flour, and fried crispy golden brown in a cast iron skillet with vegetable oil, like my dad used to make when I was a kid.  But I wanted something

Oven Chicken Cordon Bleu

My Number One Fan never ceases to amaze me, for many reasons, but noteworthy here for her ability to find great recipes on the Internet, adapt them to make them her own, and create something really outstanding.  It will invariably be selected for its ease in preparation and her ability to use a minimum of

Panko Crusted Oven Fried Chicken

Five years ago, I posted a recipe,  Low Carb Oven Pan Fried Chicken and have made it a couple of times.  It’s a good recipe, but it is labor intensive with the use and clean-up of a cast iron skillet.  I stand by the recipe, but on this occasion, I was less concerned about my

My Chick-Fil-A Rip-Off Recipe

Chick-Fil-A has one of the best chicken sandwiches around.  At least that’s what I’ve heard.  Honestly, I haven’t eaten one since they were just another food-court option in most large, big-city shopping malls.  Chick-Fil-A started as strictly a mall fast food retailer in the late 60’s and didn’t establish free-standing restaurants until the mid-80’s.  I

Potluck Chicken & Rice Casserole

This dish reminds me of those potluck suppers I used to have to go to as a kid.  There would invariably be a good twenty-percent of the total available casseroles dedicated to just chicken and rice, along with chicken-noodle, tuna-noodle, lasagna and green bean casserole.  The great thing about this dish is that there can

Pan Seared Paprika Chicken Thighs with Sour Cream Gravy

You will need a cast iron skillet for this dish.  It’s inspiration came from the classic recipe, Chicken Paprikash, which is a method of browning and then stewing chicken with onions in a savory paprika sour cream sauce.  My version yields a very tender, crispy chicken with the savory sour cream gravy made after the
