Chicken and Kale Can Be Happy (and Delicious) Together

Roasted Chicken with Kale

The Huffington Post reports that a Vermont artist whose home screen-printing business is built around the slogan ’Eat More Kale’ is under attack from the fried-chicken chain Chik-fil-A. The company claims that Bo Muller-Moore’s veggie-friendly catchphrase is too close to its own trademarked ’Eat Mor Chikin.’ We see no reason why the two slogans can’t live happily together, just like chicken and kale do in Grace Parisi’s Roasted Chicken Legs with Potatoes and Kale. The chicken’s meaty juices infuse the dark greens, creating a delicious and harmonious one-pan meal.

Vinegar-Braised Chicken

After Thanksgiving and the requisite parade of leftovers, your stomach (and oven) deserves some down time before Christmas. These cacciatore-inspired chicken thighs are quickly braised in red wine vinegar instead of red wine, which cuts down on calories while retaining flavor. The chicken browns nicely and the vinegar reduces to a delicious glaze, for a meal that's done in 30 minutes.

Pulled-Chicken Sandwich

The December issue of Men’s Health, which hits shelves today, names Pittsburgh’s Primanti Bros. as the manliest restaurant in America because the Pennsylvania staple stuffs sandwiches with side dishes like coleslaw and french fries. According to the magazine, this allows the eater to "perform some sort of manual labor with your right hand and eat with your left." We’ll keep the fries on the side, but adding crisp, creamy coleslaw to sandwiches like this North Carolina barbecue–inspired Pulled-Chicken Sandwich makes for a match made in (healthy) manly heaven.

Fried Chicken Liver Salad

Today marks the 60th release of Beaujolais Nouveau, a fruity French red aged for just a few weeks and meant to be consumed in almost as limited a window. Whether or not you partake in the festivities surrounding this inexpensive, minimally fussed-over wine, the occasion also offers an excuse to open great Beaujolais bottles during dinner. Light enough to pair with chicken (or turkey!), a structured Beaujolais with lush, spicy fruit, like the 2009 Potel-Aviron Vieilles Vignes Moulin-à-Vent, can stand up to earthy, smoky flavors in this Fried Chicken Liver, Bacon and Tomato Salad with Ranch Dressing from Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook of Animal Restaurant in Los Angeles.

Grant Achatz's Roast Chicken.

Chicago's 2012 Michelin Guide officially dropped today, leaving Alinea's Grant Achatz as the city's sole chef to hold a coveted three stars. While Achatz prepares mind-bogglingly creative tasting menus at his flagship, he is like his mentor Thomas Keller when it comes to comfort food. Achatz especially loves roast chicken, and Food & Wine has his recipe: In addition to rubbing a garlicky herb butter under the skin, he stuffs his roast chicken with more garlic, herbs and lemon.

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.

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.
