Paleontologist and Jurassic Park consultant Jack Horner tells Wired about his plans to reverse-engineer a dinosaur from a chicken in the magazine’s October issue. While there are many, many questions that surround Horner’s controversial work, one in particular has stuck in our minds: What wine would pair with dino meat? Luckily, he answered that in Wired’s "Storyboard" podcast. According to Horner, dinosaur meat would be dark meat. So, much like with chicken thighs or legs, a red wine would be appropriate. Though Horner does not foresee a world where the genetically engineered "chickensaurus" will walk among us, we can’t help but think that they’d taste lovely in this recipe for Spice-Braised Chicken Legs with Red Wine and Tomato. After all, we should eat them before they eat us, right?

According to the Associated Press, British scientists spent 14 years developing "super broccoli," a crossbreed of traditional broccoli with a wild Sicilian variety that’s rich in the nutrient glucoraphanin. Already sold as Beneforte in California and Texas, the new (non–genetically modified) hybrid will hit stores across the US this fall. Glucoraphanin has been linked to heart-attack prevention, but even skeptics can appreciate the vegetable—both the regular and souped-up versions—tossed with this quick sesame chicken.

Classic Chicken Stock

In a recent edition of the Wall Street Journal’s "In My Kitchen" series, Louisiana-based chef John Besh asserted, "The most underrated ingredient is a good chicken stock. You give me a good stock, and there’s probably nothing I can’t make." We also exalt this gravy-making essential, which is why our November issue features three chicken stock recipes. F&W's Marcia Kiesel created a fast Pressure-Cooker Stock; David Chang shared his innovative Freeze-Dried Chicken Stock recipe; and legendary French chef André Soltner provided an example of a perfect Classic Chicken Stock that works in small batches.

Thanksgiving is one month from today. Are you ready? While cooking an entire trial meal would be ridiculous, dusting off your roasting skills is not a bad idea. A practice run using Michael Chiarello’s juicy Roast Brined Chicken with Raisin and Pine Nut Agrodolce will help sharpen two important turkey techniques—roasting and brining. Just like an ideal Thanksgiving turkey, this recipe’s leftovers are still delicious the next day, even at room temperature.

Chicken Stew with Cider

This weekend marks the end of New York’s first Cider Week. Restaurants throughout New York City and the Hudson Valley featured hard ciders on their menus and used the quintessential fall beverage in a variety of preparations and pairings. Even when the formal cider celebrations are over, you can experiment at home by making dishes like this apple-cider-simmered chicken stew with autumn root vegetables.

Tonight at 8:05 p.m. ET, the St. Louis Cardinals will face off against the Texas Rangers in the first game of the 2011 World Series. While it should be exciting to watch the wildcard-winning Cardinals take on the dominating Rangers, our favorite part of any sports event is the comfort food. These Chicken Quesadillas with Blue Cheese and Caramelized Onions make a fantastic and unexpected game-day recipe.

Cheese-Stuffed Chicken Cutlets

Lock up your Camembert and stash your Stilton: Cheese is apparently the most stolen food item worldwide. The UK’s Sky News reports that retailers should consider cheese a "high risk" food, according to a report by Britain’s Centre for Retail Research. While we don’t support dairy thievery, we certainly understand why it happens. Melted, gooey cheese can upgrade almost any dish, such as these Cheese-Stuffed Chicken Cutlets, Marcia Kiesel’s lighter take on classic chicken cordon bleu.

General Tso's Chicken

The New York Post reports that New Yorkers order in or dine out for 50 percent of their meals. Rather than quit takeout cold turkey—or cold pizza, more appropriately—we suggest that delivery addicts give Grace Parisi’s home-cooked General Tso’s Chicken a try. This variation features a light cornstarch coating and is pan-fried rather than deep-fried, so it's also healthier than the Chinese takeout staple.
