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.

We can’t get enough of Jacques Pépin. Whether watching him on television, featuring his recipes in our October issue, reading about his flawless technique in yesterday’s New York Times or cooking through his new book, Essential Pépin, we like seeing the charming French legend everywhere lately. For those who want to experience a bit of Pépin’s genius fast, we suggest his weeknight-friendly Quick-Roasted Chicken with Mustard and Garlic. By splitting the bird, Pépin actually halves traditional cooking time.

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.

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.

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.

Though Brits and Americans speak the same language, kitchen terms can easily get lost in translation. In a piece for NPR, Alison Richards writes about a frustrating attempt to make star-shaped cookies when she first moved to Washington, DC, from England. After multiple batches of unyielding dough, she realized her mistake: Richards had been making biscuit dough. In England, biscuit means cookie; but in America biscuit means biscuit. There's no mistaking the real, flaky biscuit that tops this Chicken Potpie—a recipe that even a British cook could love.

If you skipped breakfast this morning, you're not alone. A recent survey conducted by market research company NPD Group found that 31 million people in the United States forgo "the most important meal of the day." Lack of hunger and being busy are the most common excuses, but here's a strong case for getting up earlier to eat: Potato, Mushroom and Chicken Hash topped with a fried egg makes a fast and fantastic use of last night's leftover chicken.

Daniel Boulud's Braised Chicken Legs.

Superstar chef Daniel Boulud's newest restaurant, Boulud Sud, made Esquire's list of the best new restaurants of 2011, now online. In describing Boulud's accomplishments, John Mariani writes, "What's left to prove? That he is also one of the canniest interpreters of Provençal and Mediterranean food outside of Marseilles and Marrakesh." For some insight into the chef's talents, home cooks can make Boulud's Braised Chicken Legs with Green Olives.

Pan-Seared Chicken Breasts

Americans may have embraced farro and quinoa as alternative grains, but barley and oats have been left behind. NPR reports that while grain growers have pushed for an oats and barley resurgence, demand remains disappointingly low. We love the heart-healthy benefits of these grains along with their underappreciated versatility: See legendary French chef Michel Bras’s recipe for pan-seared chicken breasts topped with a rich, creamy barley foam.
