Reviewed Crispy Grilled Chicken Thighs

Jun 20, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Like several other reviewers, I was skeptical about grilling breaded chicken. We had chicken breast on hand so I sliced it into "finger-sized" pieces before marinating and grilling. Even on low heat, the pieces cooked in under 20 minutes. And they were delicious! I cut out a bit of the spice because I'm a wimp, but I'll probably add it back for th"

I made this as an addition to our Christmas dinner and everyone that tried it loved it! My extended family isn't very adventurous when it comes to food, and most of them hadn't had butternut squash before so they were hesitant.

I've been on a soup kick and wanted to use the leftover dark meat from Thanksgiving that I had frozen. I didn't have a carcass so I used reduced-sodium chicken stock instead (assuming that it would somewhat make up for the missing flavor). I didn't think it would be as tasty as it was, given that it was so incredibly easy to make! The Old Bay ...

Reviewed Curried Butternut Squash Soup with Paneer (Indian Cheese Croutons and Turmeric Oil

Dec 2, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was just what I was hoping for. I wanted something very slightly sweet, creamy, and filling for a cold night. And I needed to get rid of a squash. I didn't have the time to make my own paneer, so I tried throwing a handful of feta in which made the soup more savory. Even though my husband was all stuffed up from a cold, he still thought i...
