White Chicken Chili

This week I picked up a rotisserie chicken to make my Chicken Tinga recipe. After that, I had some leftovers of the rotisserie chicken. I decided to use it to make white chicken chili.

Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

Gumbo is dish I like to make often. It’s flavorful, filling, and very popular with everyone in our family. I can make a big batch and freeze a portion to be used later on. Gumbo is a popular soup in the south, especially in the state of Louisiana. Gumbo is made of flavored stock from meat or shellfish, and vegetables likes celery, bell peppers, and onions. To make it hearty and satisfying, gumbo uses thickeners such as roux (cooked flour and butter) and filé powder.

Baked Chicken in Indian Spices

I have been meaning to make this chicken recipe for a long long time; about 23 years now! I finally got around to doing it. It is such a wonderful dish and brings back good memories of my first couple of months in the United States. This recipe was served to my husband and I by my wonderful sister-in-law when I first visited her home. The recipe is called “Indian Chicken” and is from the More With Less cookbook. Even though this is called Indian chicken, this doesn’t taste like most Indian dishes, because it has soy sauce and honey. I remembered, however, that it was very tasty!

Caldo de Pollo (Chicken Soup)

Fall is one of my favorite seasons. I like the changing color of leaves, pumpkins, sunny days, chilly evenings, and wearing scarves. I tend to sleep better when the days get shorter and colder, and I love dreaming up soup and stew recipes that would not have made sense in hot summer weather. If you’ve been following my blog, you might have noticed that I have been posting a lot of soup recipes lately. My family and I enjoy trying out soups from around the globe.

Popeyes Chicken Sandwich

I love a good fried chicken sandwich once in awhile. To me the chicken needs to be crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside, and the buns need to be toasty while the condiments are fresh and evenly distributed. It is no surprise that fast food restaurants often fail in one of these areas, but even fancy restaurants can be hit or miss. Surprisingly I have had good luck at a fast food restaurant called Popeyes. Whereas other fast food restaurants seem to get at least one thing wrong — resulting in a sandwich that is dry, cold, soggy, or simply not fresh — Popeyes has done a good job the few times I’ve been to one.

Red Chicken Curry

Curry was a dish I ate practically every day while growing up. My mother would make curry with whatever vegetables, meat, or fish she had on hand. While every household made curry, it tasted different by household and even from day to day since a lot of variation is possible. My mom never made curry the same way every time. One of my absolute favorites was red chicken curry, but we only ate this when it was tomato season.
