Texas may be out of the national spotlight now that Top Chef Texas has ended, but the Lone Star State still has something to celebrate. Today is Texas Independence Day, which commemorates the day Texas split from Mexico to become the Republic of Texas in 1836. Whether you’re in Texas, from Texas or just like big Texas flavors, cowgirl/chef Paula Disbrowe’s Texas Chicken—cooked with annato seeds, sweet carrot juice, vinegar, bay leaves, thyme, garlic and chiles—is a delicious, indoor-kitchen-friendly way to honor of the state’s holiday, especially when paired with a Lone Star beer.
