How do you do your chicken?

I am watching "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" and they are driving me crazy with the different yummy ways. Korean fried chicken,Texas BBQ chicken,Rotisserie birds etc. What you all got? I usually roast one at 400 or saute in pieces in a pan with onion. I am so frying my next one!


Just be yourself! Everyone else is taken.

I think I've made chicken almost every way one can make it. I particularly like buttermilk chicken. I am also fond of deep fried chicken (get a craving about once every 2-3 years for that). I have some excellent recipes for spicy chicken that I do really like. I don't cook as much chicken as I used to before getting hens, but the next one is going on the smoker. That probably won't happen until the spring. I have 7 turkeys in the freezer.

I've got OCD--Obsessive Chicken Disorder!

Go back a couple days in the daily dinner thread. That's how I typically do my chicken, not counting wings and stuff.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

The great thing about chicken is that you can make it so many different ways. I'm getting hungry for French's Crunchy Onion Chicken made with the French fried onions. a much better use for those onions than green bean casserole IMHO.
No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!

I cook a lot of chicken. One of my favorite ways is "Smothered Chicken", seasoned and lightly floured, browned and then cooked through in gravy that you've made in the skillet.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

I do fry mine now and then, but after brownining i lay them on a cookie sheet that's been salted,has also had granulated garlic and onion powders on it then each piece of chicken gets a bath of white wine and again topped with the garlic,and onion powders, when all is done they get about a teas of melted butter over the top and go to the oven at 300 for 40-45 min or til done through. I like to put dark meat on one pan cook it first the white meat on 2nd pan and cook for a lesser time. When everything comes out of the oven I dress them with fresh chopped parsley. My dh's pharmacy partner loves this chicken so we have to invite him each time we make it. Around here it's a let's eat ma's chicken time.
Rice pilaf from Andy's mom goes with it as does a green salad.

Chicken thighs in an oven pan, soy sauce, ginger and garlic marinade over, cook thirty minutes, turn chicken and cook 30 min more. The sauce thickens a bit and cooks with the chicken so you can use it. So very good.

I like chicken lots of ways. I usually do coq au vin, chicken cacciatore, or roast it.
