Balsamic Rosemary Chicken Thighs

Balsamic Rosemary Chicken Thighs

I don’t quite know what to say about these chicken thighs—other than the fact that they are stupid easy and stupid delicious. The pairing of balsamic vinegar with meat is irresistible. We’re obsessed. I love that this chicken tastes exquisite enough to serve to company, but with only 6 ingredients, it’s simple enough to whip together on a weeknight. If you serve it over a pile of greens, the juices dress the salad, which means less stuff to prepare and more deliciousness. You could even bake some sweet potatoes alongside the chicken (like we did) and pat yourself on the back for making dinner such a snap. Oh, and if you line the pan with parchment paper before you bake, there’s hardly any cleanup at all. Win-win-win-win. READ MORE

Chicken Tagine with Preserved Lemons and Olives

Chicken Tagine with Preserved Lemons and Olives

Okay, so you’ve jumped on the fermentation bandwagon and made preserved lemons: now what? What’s one to do with a jar full of salty, sour, funky lemons? PUT THEM IN EVERYTHING. Anywhere you’d put regular old lemons. Chicken, fish, and salad dressings are the most obvious contenders. But really, though, once you start, you begin thinking of places to put preserved lemon where no preserved lemon has gone before. Like a weirdo, I even stirred some into my kombucha the other day. AND I LIKED IT. I know that it’s challenging making a stab in the dark with an unfamiliar ingredient, so here’s a chicken tagine recipe to get you hooked. It’s a traditional Moroccan dish that is coincidentally paleo, even auto-immune paleo (which is kind of a big deal—most of what I ate on AIP wasn’t nearly this flavorful!). We legitimately fought over the leftovers of this tagine the next day. #worthit. I’m sorry and you’re welcome. READ MORE

Basic Roasted Chicken Thighs

Basic Roasted Chicken Thighs

Okay, you guys. This is one of those recipes that doesn’t really make the cut for being anything other than easy and cheap. They’re not particularly fancy or fussy, but I make at least eight pounds of roasted chicken thighs for the freezer every week. They make my dinner prep so very quick on weeknights, and also solve that occasional lazy paleo-life problem of “I need to eat, but that requires cooking”. They also ultimately produce two side-products that are a staple in my kitchen: bone broth and chicken fat. My little ugly ducklings. READ MORE

Homemade Bouillon Cubes

Homemade Bouillon Cubes

This is another one of those recipes that probably gets me labelled as, “Yeah, wow, you’re REAAAAALLLY paleo…” And yeah, wow, I am. At any rate, one of my go-to’s for a quick meal used to be mixing up a bit of chicken bouillon in a pot of hot water, throwing in some leftover veggies and meat, and calling it dinner. After a few months of being without this favorite convenience, I began to wonder if it were possible to make a homemade bouillon of sorts. Apparently, it is possible. And weird. Very weird. You know how when you roast chicken sometimes the juices caramelize into these irresistibly crispy bits? (Like, the kind my bestie and I used to fight over every time we made roasted chicken.) Well: picture taking an ENTIRE POT OF CHICKEN BROTH and condensing it down to caramelized crispy bits. Like…chicken-flavored cubes of caramel. I had to warn my husband that the little delicious-looking golden morsels in the fridge were not, in fact, candy. (Maybe I should have just let him figure it out though…) READ MORE

Chicken Bone Broth

Chicken Bone Broth

When I was growing up, homemade bone broth was just something we did. Anytime my mom made roasted chicken, she’d package up the carcass and pop it in the freezer. If soup was on the menu, she’d simmer a couple carcasses in a pot of water till they practically melted into the richest, most soothing broth imaginable, toss in some veggies, and serve it up with from-scratch bread. In college, I learned the wonders of making bone broth in the crockpot: fill it with bones, top it up with water, and let it run til you remember to turn it into soup. (I accidentally let it run for a whole week once. Oops.) It was so cheap, so easy, so delicious: gourmet college food. I made many pots of soup. So. Many. I was hanging out with a colleague in the lunchroom a few months ago, eating homemade soup. “And I made the broth too!” I told her gleefully. “You what? You make your own broth? Out of what?” she said, raising an eyebrow. I gave her my recipe, and she was shockingly awestruck. Then and there, I decided that the world was too broth illiterate. Hence, this post. Do me a favor: educate the world on the wonders of homemade broth. Tell your friends. READ MORE

Simple Roast Chicken

Simple Roast Chicken

Because I was raised by an Italian mother, it was expected that before I reached my teen years, I would learn to cook at least three basic things: tomato sauce, homemade bread, and roast chicken. I think I was maybe eight years old when I made my first roast chicken. Quite a claim to fame for a kid. But, it turned out to be more of a blessing than I could have known. Learning to cook at an early age made from-scratch cooking second nature by the time I was a teenager. In college, roasted chicken was one of the staple foods that made it into my weekly meal prep. As a result of onlooking friends’ curiosity, I taught no less than three grown adults how to make their own roasted chicken—for the first time in their life! If you can get past the idea of touching a raw chicken, you can do this too. I promise. READ MORE
