    Homemade Chicken Soup From the Carcass

    One the greatest by-products of roasting a whole chicken (which I do as a pretty frequent Sunday meal), is the opportunity to make Homemade Chicken Soup with the leftover bones & carcass.  Not sure if there is a food that feels more comforting and homey than Chicken Soup.  Just about every family and every culture has a version, and it’s one of those foods that just makes you feel good.  Th

    How to Stuff a Chicken Breast

    I’m betting that you, like me, eat a fair about of chicken.  And while, I think the legs, thighs, and wings of the bird are actually amongst the best parts, I’m betting that you, like me, also eat a lot of boneless skinless chicken breasts.  They are easy, convenient, and readily available.  But they can also be boring.  One way to “jazz” them up is to stuff them…and that’s exactly what I show

    How to Clean a Chicken

    Here is a simple technique video where I show you how to clean a chicken.  I end up cooking a whole roasted chicken at least once a month, and I gotta say, my least favorite part, every single time, is pulling that chicken out of the bag, getting the "parts" out of the cavity, and getting it clean.  But, you gotta do it and frankly, if your know what you're doing, it o

    Chicken Brine

    Whenever I cook a whole chicken, or really just about any chicken on the bone, I like to brine the chicken.  Brines, really just a mixture of water, sugar and salt, are a great way to add additional moisture and flavor to meat like chicken.  They also work really well with pork, and you can find a similar pork brine here.  In

    Now you may ask yourself (quite legitimately), why should I pound out a chicken breast?  Well, in addition to the therapeutic benefits of taking out your frustration, several chicken dishes are actually improved by having a uniformly thick (or thin), flat piece of breast meat…which is not the natural shape of a chicken breast.  This technique is your chance to mold nature into the form you need
