Serves 3-4

Active Time: 15 minutes

My Cook: Garlic Confit Chicken with Braised Carrots

March 4, 2019

 

Confit is a classic French technique that was originally used to preserve meats (primarily poultry) in fat.

Braising the carrots with chicken stock and honey adds depth and sweetness, and the barley adds..

My Cook: Thai Coconut Chicken Curry

February 12, 2019

Coconut based Thai curries are a masterclass in balancing powerful flavors with finesse. Spicy jalapeño and ginger blend with bright lemongrass and lime juice, while a little sweetness from the brown sugar and coconut milk keeps the spice from getting out of hand and a salty, umami punch of soy sauce helps blend everything together. We chose chicken thighs for this recipe because the low and slow cooking lends itself to the juicier texture of..
