 Favorite Restaurant Chicken Recipes


Restaurant Chicken Recipes make for delicious and nutritious meals.

Chicken became a favorite meal in the U.S. as people settled into farming and raising their own meats.

And maybe because of our current circumstances, Americans are enjoying thrifty, versatile and tasty chicken more than ever before.

The restaurant recipes on my website are a reflection of the fact that "American cuisine" is really both regionally and internationally diverse. Eating is simply more enjoyable today than ever before.

Reminders About Chicken ...

Great chicken recipes ...one and all, but a couple of reminders when handling and cooking chicken.

When you purchase fresh chicken get it into your 40 degree refrigerator quickly. Cook it within two days. If frozen and kept that way, it will be safe a very long time.

Do NOT cook frozen chicken in a microwave or in a slow cooker. Frozen chicken can be cooked in the oven or on the stove but it will take much longer. There are three ways to defrost chicken: in the refrigerator, in cold water and in the microwave. NEVER defrost chicken on the counter or in other locations.

Chicken may be marinated in the refrigerator up to 2 days. Boil used marinade before brushing on cooked chicken and then get rid of it.

NEVER brown or partially cook chicken to refrigerate and finish cooking later. Bacteria that may be present wouldn't have been destroyed.

ALWAYS cook chicken to well-done and use a food thermometer. A good food thermometer is your BEST FRIEND.

ALWAYS wash kitchen equipment and cutting surfaces (and your hands) after handling chicken to avoid contamination of other foods. At the restaurant we use latex gloves and then trash them. You could do the same.

I have great fun cooking and experimenting with basic recipes. One of the fun ways to experiment is with a variety of sauces and salsas.
