Linguine with Garlicky Breadcrumbs Recipe. Kaytucky Chicken. I have a really fun recipe for you!

Kaytucky Chicken

And easy, too. It’s hardly any work; the oven does the work for you, but it’s a really fun and tasty way to serve chicken for a change. Serve with an Avocado & Fennel Salad, lots of skillet baked potatoes and a little Green Peppercorn Sauce, but that’s mainly because I’m seriously addicted to how the sauce tastes on potatoes. This was absolutely delicious! Directions: 4 chicken fillets 4 frozen puff pastry sheets 4 oz cream cheese (the firm kind) few rashes of bacon flat-leaf parsley 1 spring onion 1 large egg pepper salt This is what we call ontbijtspek here. I’ve also chopped a spring onion with my cute orange baby Santoku. And I’ve finely chopped a small handful of flat-leaf parsley.

Add the spring onions, parsley, crumbled up bacon and a good pinch of pepper to 4 oz firm cream cheese; I’ve opted for low-fat cream cheese. Mix it all up. Make a fairly deep cut in each chicken fillet. Until I ended up with puff pastry looking like this. Tartelette. I was going to start this by saying that I had not married into a typical Southern family but to tell you the truth, I can't think of one typical Southern home.


Here in the South you can be from the Lowcountry, the Midlands or the Mountains. Three different ways of life, three different Southern twang lingering after each word. Three different ways of seeing the sun shine bright and to make a tomato pie. Lynn’s Paradise Biscuits. Lynn’s Paradise Biscuits April 23, 2012 | By Adam Roberts | 30 Comments Once upon a time, my friend Patty told me that the best biscuits she’d ever had in her life were at Lynn’s Paradise Cafe in Louisville, Kentucky.

Lynn’s Paradise Biscuits

“They were huge,” I remember her saying, “and buttery and fluffy and AMAZING.” When Patty told me this (back in 2009), I was working on a project that required me to research all different kinds of biscuit recipes. And so, after hearing this, I reached out to Lynn’s Paradise Cafe to see if they would share their biscuit recipe. And oh did we enjoy them. When I first made these, back in 2009, they were so huge as to be intimidating. Fast forward to 2012: Patty (friend Patty; also, seven-months pregnant Patty!)

I dug up the recipe. Recipe for pasta bow ties with broccoli, white beans, pine nuts and feta. When I was a little girl, I'd smother in ketchup anything I had to eat but didn't naturally love.

Recipe for pasta bow ties with broccoli, white beans, pine nuts and feta

As an adult, I prefer to do my smothering with good Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. I wish I could say that I naturally love broccoli, but I don't, though over the years I've discovered ways I can get more broccoli into my diet; Chinese stir-fries and pasta recipes with lots of cheese top the list. Goddess Of Scrumptiousness. Pasta with garlicky broccoli rabe. In my humble opinion, there’s cooking and there’s cooking.

pasta with garlicky broccoli rabe

(I know, I’ll just give you a minute for the staggering profundity of that sentence to kick in.) What I mean is, it’s one thing to turn banana bread into a crepe, that crepe into a cake, that cake into a vehicle for walnut butterscotch, drooling, diet-postponing, and seconds, and it’s an entirely other thing to find yourself at the playground at 5:15 p.m. and realize a) you don’t actually have anything in the fridge that you can turn into dinner, b) you, in fact, barely feel like cooking, in fact, your interest in cooking is only a single degree stronger than your desire to order in, so this better be easy, and c) the adjacent farmers market which you have heard from others boasts ramps and asparagus and spinach and other new! Spring! Delights! In fact, at the tail end of the day, boasts few things aside from a straggler of a single bundle of broccoli rabe.

Rustic Style Roasted Potatoes with Roasted Garlic... Cheesy Jalapeño Popper Baked Stuffed Chicken. What happens when you combine Skinny Baked Jalapeño Poppers with chicken??

Cheesy Jalapeño Popper Baked Stuffed Chicken

Oh yeah baby!! Cheesy stuffed chicken breast stuffed with diced jalapeño, cream cheese, cheddar jack cheese, scallions and bacon! I basically deconstructed my jalapeño poppers and stuffed them into chicken and the results where mouth watering!! I used bread crumbs because I was out of panko, but I think seasoned panko would give these a wonderful crunch like I used on my Skinny Baked Jalapeño Poppers. I made the serving size a generous two pieces, so a simple vegetable, fiesta lime rice, or a salad on the side would make this a complete meal.

Spring Recipe: Spaghetti Pan-Fried with Ramps & Mint. It's barely a recipe; it does lean on your own sense of timing and feeling of when the pasta is hot and cooked through, and when the ramps are soft and wilted.

Mustard-Herb Panko Crusted Chicken Breasts I remembered loving a Mustard-Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin I made awhile ago so I decided to adapt it a bit to work with chicken breasts that I had in the refrigerator.

Mustard-Herb Panko Crusted Chicken Breasts

It was messy but simple to prepare and the house smelled really fantastic while it cooked. The chicken turned out crisp and flavorful on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. My whole family really loved this flavorful chicken. Behind the Bites.
