Antipasto Chicken Salad

A woman in Russia has been keeping what she believes to be a small, deceased alien in her refrigerator for the past two years, according to the Daily Mail. Though no one seems to have tested the bizarre formation, Gizmodo hypothesizes that the "alien" is probably just an old, rotting vegetable. To protect your own kitchen from unidentified refrigerated objects, take a moment to honor National Clean Out Your Fridge Day today. Any leftover chicken, vegetables, salami and cheese can be thrown together to make this supersimple and delicious Antipasto Chicken Salad.

Bulgogi-Style Chicken

This past Sunday, The Simpsons took on foodies. From Julia Child to the Swedish Chef, few culinary icons were safe from animated parody. If you missed it, Eater has a recap that includes video of the show's food-centric rap written by comedians Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! Among the verse highlights: "Rolling into K-Town for beepin' boppin' bulgogi/The hotties I chill with are Sriracha and kimchi." We recommend that you roll with those aforementioned "hotties" tonight: This healthy recipe for Ginger-Marinated Bulgogi-Style Chicken goes great served with both.

Pickle-Brined Chicken

This Sunday marks NYC’s first annual Peck Slip Pickle Festival. New Amsterdam Market will overflow with kimchi, sauerkraut, pickled eggs, traditional pickled cucumbers and any other briny offering you can imagine from more than 20 producers. While there is nothing quite like the fresh crunch of a salty, sour pickle, the leftover brine can be saved and used in versatile ways. Frankies Spuntino chefs Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli use the liquid in a recipe for Pickle-Brined Chicken that yields ultramoist and flavorful results.

Chicken Fajitas

Home economics classes may be a thing of the past, but a recent study from Colorado State University found that the benefits of teaching kids how to cook in school transcend the obvious value of understanding how to feed oneself. "Teachers and principals are seeing how the classroom cooking experience helps support critical thinking, collaboration and problem-solving skills," study author Leslie Cunningham-Sabo tells NPR's food blog, The Salt. Parents can test the findings at home. If an eight-year-old could come up with this recipe for Easy Chicken Fajitas, children can surely help make it.

Couscous-Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Twinkies can be a sweet, nostalgic splurge, but snack cakes in Thanksgiving stuffing? The Huffington Post recently featured a recipe from The Twinkies Cookbook called "Twinkling Turkey," which uses the cake of six Twinkies in a stuffing and reserves the cream for basting. But it doesn't take stunt foods to add intrigue to the Thanksgiving table. F&W's ultimate recipe guide includes creatively delicious—as opposed to absurd—variations on Thanksgiving turkeys and stuffing. True enthusiasts can incorporate stuffing into weeknight meals too, like in these unique Moroccan Couscous-Stuffed Chicken Breasts.

Fried Chicken Sandwich

The fourth Earl of Sandwich, John Montagu, accomplished many things during his tenure, including funding Captain Cook’s discovery of the Sandwich Islands (now known as Hawaii). But he is most credited with inventing the sandwich. A gambler, Montagu would supposedly miss formal meals while occupied at the card table, and order servants to fetch him a piece of salt beef between two slices of toasted bread. National Sandwich Day honors Montagu's birthday on November 3, 1718. Thankfully, we’ve come up with a lot more creative fillings since then, as in this panko-crusted fried chicken sandwich topped with artichoke tapenade.

Today Mario Batali, America's fiery, red-headed master of Italian cooking, chatted with Food & Wine Facebook fans about his new cookbook Molto Batali: Simple Family Meals from My Home to Yours as part of our Kitchen Insider series. While Batali owns 19 restaurants, he's a huge supporter of cooking at home. Batali learned this recipe for Chicken with Piquillos from home cook Pilar Sanchez, who prepared the dish with chickens that were raised in her yard in Asturias, Spain. Birds from the market will also taste delicious in the peppery sauce.
