Reviewed Chicken Florentine Style

Sep 16, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I added Baby Bella's and a little more Italian parsley I also used fresh spinach (2 bunches steamed for 4 minutes, then chopped up and added later), cut up the chicken into bite sized pieces before finishing in the sauce. Then added the whole dish to 1lb of cooked Farfalle pasta (also called bow tie pasta). There was enough sauce left to coat the "

Reviewed Brined Herb-Crusted Turkey with Apple Cider Gravy

A.) Was it salty after sitting in a brine for 3 whole days, which tasted very salty when tasted before the start of the brining process? Absolutely not.
B.) Was it juicy? It was one of the juiciest turkeys I've ever had or made.
C.) How was the flavor? The sage flavor is very heavy, if you like the flavor of sage then go with the...

I made the whole "The Secret To Fish And Chips" meal and it all turned out great.

1/8th of an inch of oil is way way too little. If you view the video you can see that the oil is much deeper than 1/8 of an inch, if I remember correctly I think he said 1/3rd of the way up on the pan. If the oil gets too high (more than half way up the side of the pan) you can always put in less chicken. Trying to get an accurate temp in 1/8th of...

Reviewed Butterflied Cornish Hens with Sage Butter

Dec 30, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This dish came out fantastic, I was thinking that the hen would be over cooked by first pan frying and then spending 25 minutes in the oven. I'm happy to say that my thinking was flawed, the meat was moist and tender. I used the pan juices on some leftover wild rice dressing from Thanksgiving. The lemon sage butter mix was just what was needed for...
