Chicken Thighs with Lentils

New York City cassoulet enthusiasts will slow-cook their hearts out this Sunday for the fourth-annual cassoulet cook-off at Jimmy's No. 43, where both amateur and professional chefs will face off for the win. Tickets for the event can be purchased for $20 at the restaurant on the day of the cook-off, with all proceeds going to the Greenmarket’s Farm Hurricane Relief Fund. Those who can't make the event can prepare a quicker dish at home that recalls the heartiness of the famous French casserole: chicken thighs with lentils and chorizo.

Bobby Flay's Phenomenal Chicken Cutlets

Warning: Test Kitchen Tease snapshots may cause cravings, lip-smacking and an unshakeable desire to cook.

Bobby Flay’s Bar Americain in New York City features a rich special every Thursday: chicken cutlet, American triple cream cheese, Southern ham and arugula. The deconstructed version of classic chicken cordon bleu also stars in Clarkson Potter's fall release Bobby Flay’s Bar Americain Cookbook. Our test (left) came out golden brown and unbelievably juicy. But what elevated the dish were the toppings—lusciously creamy cheese (we used Camembert), salty country ham and a fresh peppery arugula salad. The recipe is in Bobby’s book, but if you don't have it yet, here’s a lovely riff on chicken cordon bleu from our own Test Kitchen Supervisor, Marcia Kiesel: Cheese-Stuffed Chicken Cutlets with Mustard Sauce.

Sriracha Chicken Wings

Superstar Iron Chef and food-TV powerhouse Michael Symon will make a 2,500-square-foot contribution to the rapidly improving airport dining scene this spring when he opens Bar Symon at the Pittsburgh International Airport. Eater links to the release, which explains that the menu will feature Symon’s creative comfort food including his famous egg-topped Lola Burger. Another one of the chef’s addictive innovations, these Spicy Sriracha Chicken Wings swap traditional hot sauce for his Thai condiment obsession—and you won't have to fly somewhere to try them.

Chef Eric Ripert

F&W’s month of Iconversations continued today with a live chat on our Facebook wall with chef Eric Ripert. Best known for his extraordinary seafood at Le Bernardin in New York City, the French chef’s globetrotting show on PBS, Avec Eric, has shown that his talent stretches far beyond fish. In his exotic take on a traditional Burgundian coq au vin, Ripert uses coconut milk to add richness to the cozy winter stew.

Chicken-and-Leek Stew

Tonight at 10 p.m. ET, Jamie Oliver will star on BBC America in his new series, Jamie’s American Road Trip. His trip begins in Louisiana with an alligator-wrestling grandma and takes him on adventures across the country, from underground supper clubs in New York City to a cowboy cookout in Wyoming. Here’s hoping the lovable British chef’s new show is as successful as his light and incredibly simple chicken-and-leek stew.

Slow Cooker Chicken

Slow Cooker Chicken

Today is the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. Rather than mourn thebrief daylight hours, we suggest relishing the extra-long evening with Marcia Kiesel’s recipe for Slow Cooker Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic. The three-and-a-half-hour cooking time (with only 25 minutes of active prep) yields cozy, garlicky smells and results in a supertender, intensely comforting chicken stew.

Chopped Chicken Liver

Tonight, families around the world will light two candles on the menorah. Celebrate the second night of Hanukkah with Jewish comfort foods like Andrew Zimmern’s family recipe for Chopped Chicken Liver. Though it was traditionally made by Zimmern’s bubbe (grandmother) for the Festival of Lights, the creamy, make-ahead liver spread would be a brilliant addition to any holiday celebration.

Mascarpone-Stuffed Chicken

Mascarpone-Stuffed Chicken

In Sunday’s finale of The Next Iron Chef: Super Chefs, Geoffrey Zakarian prevailed in a holiday-themed challenge against Elizabeth Faulkner and won the title of Iron Chef. We'd like to think we helped Zakarian prepare for the competition. Back in 2004, F&W challenged the New York–based chef to transform the main ingredients of his complex dishes into rustic, homey recipes such as this creamy Mascarpone-Stuffed Roast Chicken. The dish is just as good at room temperature as it is fresh out of the oven.

France Headlines the Golden Globes

Pot au Feu

Pot au Feu

Nominations for the 2012 Golden Globes came out this morning. Along with Southern-based favorite The Help and George Clooney’s The Descendants, two films in particular made a strong showing—one from the French and one about the French. Woody Allen’s nostalgic Midnight in Paris garnered four nominations, while the black-and-white, primarily silent film The Artist earned six nominations, including Best Director for Frenchman Michel Hazanavicius. Inspired by award season's Francophile twist, we recommend an elegant French dish this evening: Pot au Feu made with tender chicken breasts and winter vegetables.
