Chicken and Dumplings

It may not be 15 degrees here in Southern California, but it is colder, cloudier, and rainier than normal here in February. So I’m bringing one of my staple dishes out of the cob webs this afternoon. Enjoy.

Great recipe for a cold evening.

4 bone in skin on chicken thighs
1 small yellow onion chopped
4 cloves garlic finely chopped

1 TBS white wine
1 TBS dark soy sauce (Use Gluten Free Soy Sauce)

1 TBS corn starch
red pepper flakes, green onion, and sesame seeds to garnish (optional)


Heat oil on medium in a large frying pan. Add chicken thighs and cook about 3 minutes on each side until skin is golden brown and crispy. Use tongs to remove chicken to a paper towel lined plate.

Add onion and garlic and saute about 5 minutes until onions and garlic are soft and golden.

Mix stock, oyster sauce, wine, soy sauce, and brown sugar in a small bowl. Add the sauce to the pan and stir.

Return the chicken to the pan, turning to cover it in the sauce. Cover the pan and simmer 15 minutes turning the chicken once. Chicken is done when internal temperature reads 170 degrees on a meat thermometer.

Serve with rice, dribbling the saucy onions over top.serves 4.

Japanese Curry Chicken

A great dish for the cool fall weather.



1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs
2 carrots
1 onions
1-2 potatoes
1 Red Pepper
1/2 Tbsp. ginger
3 Tbsp. Canola oil
4 Cups water
1 box (7 oz, 200g) store-bought Japanese curry roux



Cut up chicken thighs into small pieces and saute in canola oil. Set aside chicken. In the same pan saute chopped carrots, onion, red pepper, ginger, and potatoes until done. Add Chicken, water and Japanese Curry roux. Stir until curry is dissolved.Cook until mixture becomes thicker (about 20 minutes). Serve over rice.

Chicken Salad

This is a great summer salad for those days that it’s too hot to cook a meal. This is great on croissant rolls, spread on crackers, or with veggies.


2 to 2 1/3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 chopped scallions
1 cup real mayonnaise
½ teaspoon garlic salt
¾ teaspoon finely ground black pepper

Place chicken in pot. Add just enough cold tap water to cover it. Bring to a boil over high heat.

When chicken boils, immediately remove from the heat and let pot stand, covered, 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in the center. Immediately remove chicken from pot. Discard broth or reserve for another use.

Fit a food processor with the steel blade and process each breast 1 at a time: Cut each breast into 4 pieces, and process about 5 seconds, then pulse the motor about 3 to 4 more times just until the breast is shredded but not finely ground. As each breast is finished, pour the meat into a 3-quart or larger bowl.

Add all the ingredients and chill for an hour. Serve.

This is one of my favorite chicken dishes. This recipe also works great with veal.
