Reviewed chicken with wild mushrooms

Oct 7, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Made this recipe exactly as written and it was scrumptious. I think the sauce
would be good with a lot of different meats. I could have eaten it with a spoon by itself it was so good. Make sure though that you use the mushrooms called for in the recipe. They don't get soggy and watery like button mushrooms (that I use a lot.) If I...

I brined the chicken for around 7 hours and the chicken had a really good flavor. That being said, keeping the oil around 340 * my chicken crust was kind of burnt in places. I'm just wondering if not removing all of the thyme leafs could have made this happen. (Some chemical reaction to the oil ?) Another thing is this is really messy to make."

Hate to write a review without making the recipe yet but I just wanted to caution people about putting your roasting pan on the stove burner(s) if you have a ceramic top stove. Most people might already know this but I learned the hard way to not ever put a large pan on "eyes" of your stove if you have an electric ceramic top. I did it making g"

Pioneer Woman is one of my favorite cooking shows partly because I love her demeanor (so laid back) & and her recipes are usually pretty simple. I tried this last night and it was good but I guess I was expecting just chicken and noodles as a main dish, not chicken and noodle soup. Any way you spin it, it is just plain soup. Which nothings wron"

Just scrumptious !! I was leery of the cooking time being only 2 hours so I did cook mine at 325* for 4 hours but they were definitely fall off the bone tender. (I cooked both with bone and boneless ribs together. You could smell these cooking outside of my house and they smelled wonderful. After browning, I did not transfer them to casserole "

Maybe I'm just not a fan of angel food cakes but this cake just didn't have any pizazz ! It wasn't bad, but it just wasn't that great. I made it just as the recipe stated but it was just kind of blah. Ina is my favorite FN chef and most of her recipes that I have made are wonderful - just not this one. The recipe was not hard even though I ha"

Deeeeeelicious !!!!!! I don't know too much about this chef but I will tell you that this is the BEST baked chicken I have ever eaten. I didn't change a thing. Made it exactly as written.
The chicken is so juicy it just about melts in your mouth and the skin on the chicken browns beautifully. I will make this often since it is easy...

I love all of Ina's recipes and this was no exception. It was really really good but to me not quite 5 stars. I made this recipe exactly as written, even baking the chocolate chip cookies from a recipe for the Tate's cookies online. I think now after baking it and tasting it that it would have been just fine using any type of good store bought "

I usually don't do many Emeril recipe's for some reason but I happen to see this online here and tried it. I'm glad that I did. Was very very moist, not dry at all. The next day it even tasted better !!! I did use about 3/4 cup more apples. (Used Granny Smith) Didn't change or alter anything else. I would highly recommend this recipe. By...

Mar 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I was going to give this recipe just 2 stars and then just now I realized that I used SKINLESS boneless chicken breasts and I think maybe that made a difference. That being said, it was too lemony for me. I know some people said that it wasn't lemony enough but it was too much to me. The chicken was moist but I just didn't like the taste. Sorry...

Mar 10, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I'm sorry but I did not like this recipe at all. Maybe because I substituted cod for the halibut but I don't think that mattered that much because it just did not have any flavor. I used all of the ingredients but it was just blah and the sauce was way too thin. I don't know what is Thai about it, couldn't taste any coconut taste, or curry. I...

Loved this recipe as did my whole family. Of course I did re-do the recipe a little since I didn't have a couple of items that were listed. First of all after reading many reviews that said didn't need to marinate the beef all night, I just marinated it for a few hours and I think that was plenty. (By the way, to save time , I cut up the celery,...

Everyone loved this recipe !!! The only thing different that I did was not adding the nuts.
The texture after this sets up in the fridge is perfect. Really good to put on leftover turkey sandwiches. My husband said this recipe is a keeper for every Thanksgiving meal we have from now on. Thanks Ina. You are always my "go to" chef for...
