Smoked North Carolina Chicken Wings

Smoked North Carolina Chicken Wings

North Carolina Barbecue Rub is my go to for chicken wings. It's hot with a subtle sweetness and not too much of a smoky flavor. This recipe is a favorite with our friends and family and always leaves them coming back for more. Not a huge fan of heat? Pair these wings with Ranch Dip. The cool dip balances the heat of the wings - even people who prefer sweet chicken wings will fall for this winning combination!

This flavorful chicken braise combines cinnamon with a hearty tomato sauce to create a comforting and aromatic Greek dish.  Use some of the sauce to flavor some orzo and you’ve got a tasty side that nicely complements the chicken.  And as a bonus, your kitchen will smell amazing!

Chicken and Porcini Mushroom Soup with Turmeric and Sweet Smoked Paprika Rice Cakes

Chicken and Porcini Mushroom Soup with Turmeric and Sweet Smoked Paprika Rice Cakes

Chicken is a staple in our kitchen and a whole roasted chicken is a typical Sunday night meal. We’re in waste not – want not mode, so this week’s roasted chicken leftovers were repurposed into a Chicken and Porcini Mushroom Soup. We happened to have day old rice in the fridge and decided to make griddled rice cakes to go along with the soup, but you could always add noodles or a wild rice blend for added texture and flavor.

Thai Coconut and Chicken Curry Soup

Thai Coconut and Chicken Curry Soup

We love Thai Coconut Curry Soup and have been on the hunt for the perfect recipe. Enter Derek Bissonette's recipe from his cookbook Soup: The Ultimate Book of Soups and Stews. We hadn't even finished our bowls before we started talking about making it again. Easy enough for weeknights, but flavorful and impressive enough for a dinner party. Our favorite new way to use our Thai Seasoning!

Roasted Harissa Chicken with Potatoes and Artichokes

Roasted Harissa Chicken with Potatoes and Artichokes

This North African roasted chicken recipe has all the right flavors for a hearty, comfort filled dinner.  The Harissa add just the right amount of heat, but not heat for heat's sake.  The bold flavors of the chiles come through and act as the medium for merging the potatoes and artichokes into an amazing one-pan meal.  Don't skip the preserved lemons...they make a huge difference.
