The Goose of Christmas Past

Originally published December 24, 2003.  I’ve been a haunted man for 13 years, and I place the blame squarely on Tiny Tim’s crooked little shoulders. It was December 1990, and I had just finished rereading A Christmas Carol. Inspired by Tiny’s exultant prayer, “God bless us every one,” I decided that I, too, would have a proper Christmas dinner. The next day I marched into my local butcher shop in Brooklyn and ordered a goose.

This bourbon buttermilk fried chicken has that incredibly satisfying combination of shatteringly crisp skin and meltingly tender meat with an ever-so-subtle hint of bourbon

The hardest part is letting it marinate for 2 days.

This recipe is another favorite from The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook. However, I use the chicken in so many other recipes, I decided it was past time to share the original here. You only need a few minutes to get this chicken ready to cook and you’ll be sitting down to eat just ten minutes later. The chicken is great on its own with a side of raw vegetables and ranch dip. It can also be sliced thin for sandwiches, or chopped bite-size for soups, salads, or pasta. How To Make Last...

Today, I’m sharing my baked chicken thighs recipe

These chicken thighs are crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. The reason I love this recipe is the fact that I can have dinner ready from start to finish in an hour. Kitchen Tools Needed Colander Large Baking Pan Foil Mixing Bowl Pastry Brush Meat Thermometer Step One The first step for me is washing the raw chicken. The CDC and FDA recommend you do not wash the chicken due to bacteria that may splash on your countertop, clothes, etc. You decide what works for you, I can’t place that bloody chicken in my pans, that’s just how I roll. So, I rinse my raw chicken under cold water and make sure I clean up the work...
