One-Pot Wonders: Coconut Rice With Chicken Thighs

Why I don't cook everything in coconut milk is beyond me. It adds a rich flavor, creamy texture, and a sweetness that's perfectly at home in savory dishes.

Moroccan-Spiced Roast Chicken With Creamy Cilantro Sauce From 'Kitchen Confidence'

As <b>Kelsey Nixon</b> writes in her new cookbook, <i>Kitchen Confidence</i>, roast chicken was one of the first meals she learned how to make.

Lavender, Lemon, and Honey Spatchcocked Roast Chicken

I think there is something superlatively romantic about a roast chicken. It may not have the sex appeal of an oyster, but it has romance. You know that that scene at the end of <i>The Great Gatsby</i> when Daisy and Tom sit, plotting over a plate of cold chicken? That's when you knew she loves him. There …

Grilled Chicken on a Stick With Alabama White Barbecue Sauce From 'Down South'

Mayonnaise probably isn't the first ingredient you think of when you hear the words "barbecue sauce." It might even be the last thing that crosses your mind (especially if you're not a coleslaw-on-pulled-pork kind of person). Yet the creamy condiment is, in fact, the main ingredient in Alabama …

Roast Chicken and Butternut Squash Salad With Jus Croutons, Arugula, and Grapes

It may seem superfluous to roast a chicken specifically for a salad, but believe me: it's completely worthwhile (and you'll have extras for a sandwich, anyway). Here, the meat—torn from the bone—is mixed with butternut squash, oven-crisped jus-soaked croutons, grapes, and arugula, all swathed in …

Dinner Tonight: Couscous With Roasted Butternut Squash, Apple, and Chorizo

Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Shallots With Balsamic Vinegar Recipe

The key to roasting Brussels sprouts is to use the full-on, frontal-assault, no-prisoners-taken, blast-the-sh*t-out-of-'em approach, a.k.a. very high heat. This allows the exteriors of the sprouts to caramelize and brown, producing sweet by-products, while at the same time making sure that they …

From the Archives: No-Holds-Barred Sunday Lasagna Bolognese

Serious Eats Art Director Robyn Lee made the questionable decision to construct my Lasagna Bolognese on a weeknight. Why questionable? Because the sauce alone needs to simmer for three hours before you can even begin to construct or bake the damned thing. "We didn't eat until 1 a.m. so we were …
