Crispy Airline Chicken

Crispy Airline Chicken | If you’re a reader of this blog, you know I tend to reminisce about my glory days as a member of the Sharks growing up in the mean streets of Boston. Ok that’s a joke, I never joined a gang and I grew up in the suburbs, but we did get into the city to see the sights once in a while. And one of those sites stands proud at Park Plaza, the old Hotel Statler. And you know what this place was famous for? Its fancy “Statler Chicken,” which was a chicken breast with the first wing joint attached (aka the drumette). Soon it became a hit, and the airlines started serving them up in the 60’s when people thought it was ingenious to smoke on planes, and that’s how they adopted their better known name today, the “Airline Chicken.”

Happy Hour Chicken Nuggets

Happy Hour Chicken Nuggets

Happy Hour Chicken Nuggets | When I was kid in North Andover, Massachusetts, I used to eat chicken nuggets everyday for breakfast. And I mean everyday. It was the true breakfast of champions. Or it was just plain weird and I have no idea why my parents let me do it. I used to go through one of those giant frozen bags and a bottle of BBQ sauce by sunset, only to rise again the next day to depopulate the chicken world. I’ve since changed my breakfast menu (in case you were wondering), but that doesn’t mean I still don’t get nostalgic about my nuggets. And when I do, we go all out in my kitchen.

Hoisin Roast Chicken | Hoisin. The BBQ sauce of the Orient. We figured if a bagillion people like it in the far east, then we should probably give it a try. And the verdict was, drum roll please…it’s darn good. Different. A little sweet for us. But good. The ingredients vary from version to version,…

Garbanzo Dusted Split Chicken in Chorizo

Garbanzo Dusted Split Chicken in Chorizo

Garbanzo Dusted Split Chicken in Chorizo | We like to think of our pantry as a society, full of individual ingredients. And there are two types of ingredients in that society: celebs and worker bees.

The celebs bring flavor and flare, while the worker bees have a specific job. So, say we are making waffles. We make a batter with flour, milk and eggs (our worker bees), then flavor it up with a little salt, butter and vanilla (our resident celebs). But sometimes we feel bad for the worker bees and want to give them a chance on the flavor stage. This recipe does just that, specifically in regards to the boss of the worker bee union, Mr. Flour.
