Classic chicken salad. Savory, cool, tangy, and perfect for a hot day.

Chicken Gumbo Recipe

The classic creole dish featuring the obligatory holy trinity of peppers, onions, and celery. The holy trinity is the Cajun version of mirepoix. Gumbo is fantastic in that it is both light and flavorful at the same time. Be careful with the rice. As a little can go a long way. If you put in […]

Chicken Cacciatore Recipe

A classic Italian dish. Fairly popular in Italian restaurants until recently when it was disregarded and categorized as old fashioned. It is characterized by chicken breasts covered in tomatoes and veggies then baked in the oven until it is fork tender. Tasting Guidelines: Taste is savory, sweet, and a touch of spicy.

Pesto Recipe

A northern Italian favorite. A simple sauce made from basil leaves. It is incredibly versatile and can be placed on anything that is of a lighter weight. Especially good with chicken. Pesto was huge in the 80’s and 90’s, which was captured in the iconic sitcom Seinfeld where George (paraphrased) says, “Ya know? I just […]

Chicken Tetrazzini Recipe

A delicious if unauthentic American-Italian dish. The highlight of this dish is the excessive use of Parmesan and the unashamed use of a generous cream sauce.

Tasting Guidelines: Taste is sweet and spicy with aromatic curry notes. Weight is medium but can be balanced with lemongrass. Texture is soupy. Good for […]

Chicken Noodle Soup

An American classic. If there is somebody in the United States that has never heard of chicken noodle soup, they must live under the world’s largest rock. This dish is what I consider to be a slightly up-market take on the dish. This chicken noodle features big cuts of veggies, egg noodles, and a good […]
