Oven-Fried Chicken

From EatingWell

Great news - crunchy, flavorful fried chicken can be healthy. We marinate skinless chicken in buttermilk to keep it juicy. A light coating of flour, sesame seeds and spices, misted with olive oil, forms an appealing crust during baking. And with only 7 grams of fat per serving rather than the 20 in typical fried chicken - that is good news.

South Indian Chicken Curry

From Fine Cooking Magazine

The southwestern part of India known as Kerala, where I was raised, is endowed with lush, tropical growth year-round--coconut trees along the coast and, at higher elevations, an abundance of herbs and spices. So it's no wonder that in this region, highly spiced curries flavored with coconut milk are an important part of every dinner. If you don't have time to make your own fresh Curry Spice Mix, you can substitute a store-bought garam masala or curry powder.

Chicken Scarpariello

From Food & Wine

To make her Sunday-supper scarpariello -- chicken sauteed in a tangy lemon glaze with bell pepper -- Fran Parisi always uses a whole chicken cut into pieces, then cooks it on the stove for hours. Grace Parisi opts for faster-cooking boneless thighs and skips the bell pepper in favor of jarred Peppadews, sweet-spicy pickled peppers from South Africa, sold in many US supermarkets.

Chicken Thighs with Spicy Tomato-Pepper Sauce

From Food & Wine

Gerald Hirigoyen named his restaurant after piperade, a Basque vegetable stew that combines tomatoes, bell peppers, and onions; here he uses a piperade puree to braise chicken. He says children love this lightly sweet sauce: "Anytime I'm cooking for my son and need to get him to eat something, I use piperade and call it ketchup."
