Curry Chicken Salad: Boyd Street Kitchen


This Curry Chicken Salad recipe is a little different in that the fruit used is not grapes but golden raisins.  I first tasted this recipe when a friend brought me a bowl (thanks, Paul) and was so intrigued by the taste that I  grabbed the recipe from The Kitchen..just love that show. It has become one of my favorites from foodnetwork.com.   I have never been a lover of raisins, but this salad is so tasty and the texture of the raisins with the slight crunch of the celery, together with the hint of curry, will make you want to prepare this time and time again.  Did I say easy?  It is!!   See the recipe below.

Heroin Chicken (Parmesan Baked Chicken): Boyd Street Kitchen


My son found this recipe for Heroin Chicken on the internet. I guess the name comes from the fact that it is so good, it is addictive. I have made it twice and it is AWESOME. Coated with parmesan cheese and spices, the chicken has just the right amount of spice and is juicy and moist…low-carb, too. I use four thin chicken breasts but it is so good, you will wish you doubled the recipe!

Ingredients:

4 pieces boneless skinless chicken breasts (also try with 24 chicken wings or with 1 lb flounder) (I use the thin chicken breasts)

2 cups grated parmesan cheese

3 tablespoons dried parsley

2 tablespoons dried oregano leaves

3 teaspoons paprika

1 teaspoon pepper

2/3 cup melted butter ( I just used one stick)

Instructions:

1. First, preheat the oven to 350°F.

2. Then combine the grated cheese and the seasonings. Line a shallow baking pan with foil. (Do not omit this step, or you’ll still be scrubbing the pan for days!).

3. Melt the butter in a shallow bowl or pan.

4. Dip each piece of chicken into the butter, and then into the seasoned cheese, coating well.

5. Arrange in the foil lined pan. Bake for 30-45 minutes at 350°F. Don’t overcook! With thin chicken breasts, I baked for 30 to 35 minutes.

ENJOY!

Chicken and Dumpling Casserole: Boyd Street Kitchen


I have made this Chicken and Dumpling Casserole many times and it always tastes like I have spent hours and hours to prepare. This is not the bisquick recipe which you see so often, but rather the dumplings are made with flour and milk and taste like the real thing! It is so delicious and your family will eat every morsel.

Chicken & Dumpling Casserole

I serve this frequently with a creamy cucumber and onion salad but a tossed salad or green vegetable side would be good, too.

Chicken & Dumpling Casserole with Creamy Cucumber Salad

RECIPE:

Ingredients:

3-4 cups of cooked chicken ( I use a Rotisserie Chicken and don’t measure..it is approximately 3-4 cups)
Sprinkling of Sage
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) of unsalted butter
1 cup of self-rising flour (if you use AP Flour, add 1 1/4 t of baking powder and 1/8 t salt)*
1 cup of milk
2 cups of chicken stock/broth (low sodium is best)
1 can of Campbell’s original condensed cream of chicken soup

Instructions:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Melt 1/2 stick of butter and pour into the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Shred the chicken and spread it on top of the butter. Sprinkle a litte sage on top. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk and the flour and slowly pour that over the chicken taking care not to disturb the chicken too much. Do not stir. Whisk together the chicken broth and the cream of chicken soup. Slowly pour that over the flour and milk mixture. Do not stir.

Bake uncovered at 400 degrees F for 35 to 45 minutes, or until top is light golden brown. All ovens vary. Let casserole rest before serving.

*I have made this recipe numerous times with All Purpose flour and never added baking soda or additional salt.

ABOUT HELEN CORBITT… (written by PATTY VINEYARD MACDONALD)

“Stanley Marcus declared Helen Corbitt ‘the Balenciaga of Food.’ Earl Wilson described her simply as ‘the best cook in Texas.’ Lyndon B. Johnson loved her stroganoff and wished she would accompany him—and Lady Bird—to the White House to run the dining room.

“Helen Corbitt is to American cuisine what Julia Child is to French. Corbitt’s genius was in presentations of new and unusual flavor combinations, colors, and even serving temperatures. She insisted on the finest, freshest ingredients, served with impeccable style. As Director of Food Services for Neiman Marcus, she traveled widely, bringing recipes back to tantalize Texans’ tastebuds.”
