Buttermilk Fried Chicken


I want a deep fryer. In fact, I’ve wanted one for a number of years.  Not because I want to fry everything. I don’t.  But when it comes to fries and tempura and some other cooking efforts that work better with food submerged in oil than in a 1-inch puddle of oil, a deep fryer […]

Simple and Lighter Chicken with Biscuits (really)


I love it when I get an email in the middle of my work day saying, “Can you make this?” Stephanie occasionally will find a recipe she would like to try and knows I love a challenge. This recipe wasn’t much of a challenge, though. In fact, it ended up being a pleasantly simple recipe […]

Chicken Tikka Masala Poutine for #SundaySupper


When I heard what this week’s Sunday Supper theme was I knew exactly what I wanted to make, since I had tried making the dish a month before and knew I was close to getting it right. The theme this week is Copycats Recipes. Basically, recreate a recipe from a restaurant. Badmaash is an unique […]

Beer Can Chicken


This is a bit of a lowbrow dish for  a sustainable food blog, but who cares. It’s chicken and beer and that is a fine combination any time for me.  Plus beer can chicken makes for an easy effort dish after work, provided you have enough time to wait for it to finish cooking. Note […]

Organic Chicken Strips with Morel Mushroom Reduction


  My new job is surround by some great food choices including my favorite grocery stores Erewhon and Whole Foods. I stopped by Whole Foods after work and quickly bought a few things including some Mary’s Organic chicken though I accidentally grabbed a package of tenders instead of split boneless chicken breasts.  Of course I didn’t realize […]

Why We Don’t Buy From Tyson, Perdue and Others


Last night’s HBO Last Week Tonight with John Oliver is a great example why our family moved to a sustainable food solution. If you didn’t see it, John took the chicken industry to task for treating its contract farmers like shit. Like chicken shit to be exact. Here is the full clip that shows how […]

Chicken Curry with Sweet Potato and Chickpeas


I haven’t been writing much lately because I have been busy with a new job I started almost three weeks ago. The new job is a bit longer of a commute which led me to look for some slow cooker (crockpot) recipes since I get home a little later than I used to and well […]

Chicken Tinga Tamales


      Nothing says Christmas like making Tamales. At least that’s the case for a lot of families, but not ours.  I wasn’t raised in a house that made tamales for the holidays. Nope. Instead we made spritz cookies and as a kid I would sneak into the garage freezer and eat a few […]

Chicken Curry SousVide


  I’ve made quite a few recipes using my Sous Vide Supreme. The thing I really like most about it how I can cook meat to a perfect doneness by leaving it in the water bath all day while I go out enjoy whatever else needs to get done. Today I prepared a couple bone-in […]
