Air Fried Chicken Wings

2018-02-12T17:38:43+00:00 Air-Fryer, Poultry|

This is the easiest, healthiest and fastest way to enjoy chicken wings…air-frying it! If you are like me and enjoy crispy, and grease free chicken wings you must, I emphasize you MUST try this method…it is magical, and you just need a few ingredients besides the air-fryer and chicken wings, super simple! Honestly since I got the air fryer I have been using it a lot and I kick myself for not have found this gadget sooner…it is true that is kind of bulky, but it does wonder and does not heat the kitchen as the oven… Did I convince you that this is the way to go? When ordering chicken wings in a restaurant I always request them [...]

Air Fried Taiwanese Black Pepper Chicken

2018-02-13T07:50:58+00:00 Air-Fryer, Asian Inspired Recipe, Poultry|

These little chunks of chicken are so tasty and totally addictive…they all come with lots of flavors and are a favorite in Taiwanese cafes… I love this chicken, and with the help of the air-fryer I am not worry about of the fat that come with it…the original recipe calls for deep fry, since I have been avoiding deep frying at home I would only get this chicken when eating out.  Well, no more of ordering this chicken now that I can use the air-fryer and get the same crispy chicken.  I like to use chicken thighs for this recipe since it has a bit more of fat therefore more flavor. This chicken is very often found in Taiwanese [...]

Crispy Air Fried Chicken

2018-02-13T16:01:01+00:00 Air-Fryer, Poultry|

Can you believe that these chicken drumsticks were cooked in an air fryer? I am so excited to share with you my latest gadget…an air fryer…after searching on the internet and “flirting” with many models of air fryer I decided to get this one, the reviews were pretty good and the price was good as compared to the other ones in the market. Since I got this gadget I have tried many things from air fried tofu, eggplant, crab cakes, egg rolls and so on…but the ultimate test would be fried chicken, and guess what, it pass our critique…the drumsticks were crispy on the outside and super moist on the inside…and all with only a spray of olive oil. I am [...]

Sous Vide Flank Steak and Chicken Breast with Moore’s Marinades and Sauces

2018-02-13T20:28:41+00:00 Meat, Poultry, Sous Vide|

This is a very simple and easy way to make tasty steak or chicken using sous vide. In this post I am sharing with you sous vide steak and chicken made with Moore’s marinades and sauces that I received as a compliment.  I got to use the Original Marinade for the steak and the Zesty Garden Herb Marinade for the chicken.  They both turned out very tasty...and really easy, especially when you do not have time to gather all the spices for the marinade or sauces, using the pre made bottles of marinades just come very handy and practical. I find that most of the sauces are too salty for my taste, therefore I used about ½ to ⅔ from [...]

Trader Joe’s Gnocchi with Sous Vide Chicken

2018-02-16T11:50:27+00:00 Pasta and Grain, Poultry, Sous Vide|

Have you ever tried Trader Joe’s gnocchi? Well, if you like gnocchi you should give it a try…I must confess it was better than I expected. As a matter of fact, this is my second time cooking it and this time I dressed it with peas, roasted sugar tomatoes and sous vide chicken. This is particular great especially if you are pressed for time (like now getting ready for the holidays…), in a short time you are ready for an almost “gourmet” dinner, considering that you have in your refrigerator roasted sugar tomatoes and in the freezer green peas, sous vide chicken and a bag of Trader Joe’s gnocchi. Don’t panic if you do not have the ingredients listed…you can [...]

Lemon Thyme Chicken, Sous-Vide

2018-02-22T12:41:43+00:00 Poultry, Sous Vide|

Healthy chicken breast cooked to perfection...tender, moist and packed with flavor. How? Cooking using sous vide method. Yes, I am still playing with the sous vide method…so far this method has not disappointed me… This week, I am sharing with you a very simple recipe for a juicy, flavorful chicken breast. The good thing about this method is that you never overcook, even if you leave the chicken breasts in the water-bath longer than the set time. As your chicken is cooking (sous-vide) you have all the time to do whatever you need to do and not to worry that the chicken breasts will be over cooked, therefore, dry and rubbery. The sous vide cylinder, that I use is from [...]

Baked Thai Chicken Drumstick

2018-02-09T13:12:17+00:00 Asian Inspired Recipe, Poultry|

This is a very simple and easy recipe. I got a big package of organic drumsticks from Costco which comes in small package containing 6 drumsticks each, which e very convenient. After searching for recipes, I decided to try this recipe from here, with some changes. In this recipe you will need some unusual ingredient such as fish sauce, which is a very common sauce used in Southeast Asia. You will need to acquire a taste for this sauce, although in this recipe there is only a hint, therefore no need to worry about the pungent and smelly nature of this sauce. It is tastier if you marinate the drumsticks for a few hours, thus saturating the chicken with all the [...]

Simple Turkey Chili

2018-01-31T14:03:56+00:00 Poultry, Soup/Stew|

I learned this recipe for turkey chili at a cooking class that I attended a while ago. It was a fun class we got to learned how to make this simple turkey chili, Caesar salad which I shared before and rice to go along with it. The recipe called for canned cannellini beans but I used the dry ones and cooked them from scratch. Since I attended the class, I have made many times this simple chili, especially during cold season. Nothing like a hot and spicy bowl of chili to warm up the evening or day… I know, the list of ingredients sound pretty scary, but trust me, once you have them all handy, to put together is just [...]

Chicken with Spicy Sausage

2018-01-31T14:36:10+00:00 Poultry|

I hope you all had a great time during this holiday…and yes, I am starting the year with this tasty chicken dish, and yes the recipe is very simple…as you can imagine, chicken and spicy sausage…all together cooked on a 10 inch cast iron skillet…yum! I must admit that I should use more often the cast iron skillets that I have…I recently acquired a grill pan as well…the only, I mean more than one reason that I am very skeptical is that after using it, the cast iron pan requires some “babysitting” and they are sure heavy to handle. Although everytime that I cook with it I am very pleased with the depth of the flavor…and this chicken recipe is no [...]

Portabella Stuffed Turkey

Before you continue reading my post, I need to apologize for not posting anything that is like “Halloween”…somehow I did not come out with anything interesting using Halloween theme…I have been out of creativity lately…yes, you can add some “eyes” and “nose” on this stuffed Portabella mushroom… Anyway, this is another way that I found very tasty to use Portabella mushrooms…by stuffing it with ground turkey. It is simple and delicious! I love this by simply serving with a small side salad. I hope you enjoy! Ingredients: 1 lb ground turkey 1 red bell pepper, chopped ½ cup bulgur 1 green onion chopped finely Dash of ground all-spice Salt and pepper to taste 1 tablespoon olive oil Fresh parsley finely [...]
