11 Sticky, Spicy, Sometimes-Sweet Wing Sauce Recipes

Even if you don’t know the difference between a touchdown or a field goal, or offense vs. defense, you can appreciate a good batch of chicken wings at a Super Bowl party. After all, you came here for the snacks, right? To kick off your game day festivities, we’re sharing our favorite wing sauce recipes, from the sticky sweet to the fiery.


Buffalo Sauce

When you think of chicken wings, buffalo sauce is probably the first thing that comes to mind, right? A generous coating of Frank’s RedHot with a cool ranch dipping sauce on the side is obviously what the Super Bowl is really about. Pro tip: Food52’s Creative Director Kristen Miglore (and resident Genius) thinks that garlic confit enhances the flavor of buffalo sauce even more, so try incorporating a few cloves puréed roasted garlic.

Plant-Based Chicken Will Now Be Available at KFC—Wait, What?

Since I was a little kid, my family has always celebrated the Kentucky Derby with—what else—Kentucky Fried Chicken. We’d crowd around the television, sit down on a picnic blanket on the floor, and devour a bucket of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, flaky buttermilk biscuits, and our own version of a “mint julep” (which I realize now was just a mint chocolate chip milkshake). Eventually, we turned to a vegan diet, ditched the KFC, and then, years later, ditched the veganism. If only KFC had come out with plant-based chicken…

But now they have! The fast-food chain just announced that its more than 4,000 locations across the country will now offer vegan fried chicken. In an exclusive collaboration between KFC and Beyond Meat, the plant-based option will be available for a limited time beginning on Monday, January 10. Fans of the fast-food chain can buy KFC’s Beyond Fried Chicken in six- or 12-piece orders, with dipping sauces included, of course. Prices start at $6.99, excluding tax.

The Thanksgiving Leftovers Hack We’ll Never Skip

Thanksgiving is over. You’ve packed up all the leftovers you couldn’t eat or give away, and now the second marathon begins: how to turn it all into something you want to eat again. If you’ve roasted a turkey (or chicken) before, odds are you know to save that carcass to use as the base for stock.

But when it comes to the most flavorful stock, the kind that you’d be happy to sip on straight when you just can’t get it up to make soup, there’s one thing you simply must do. Before making stock, you’ll need to roast the turkey carcass.

We’ve teamed up with our friends at All-Clad to bring you Pans With a Plan—a series sharing smart techniques, tasty recipe ideas, and all sorts of handy tips for cooking novices and seasoned pros alike. Here, food writer and recipe developer Asha Loupy shares a family-favorite Thanksgiving recipe: crispy roast chicken with porchetta-inspired spices that all comes together in the All-Clad 50th Anniversary D3® Stainless Casserole Dish.


For the last decade, my Thanksgiving guest list has been one name: my mom. No matter how much we love leftovers (and, we do!), even a small turkey is way too big for our tiny family feast. Maybe like me, your table might look a little smaller this year. Even if you’re cooking for a few people, I’m here to tell you, your Thanksgiving can be just as special—and equally delicious, too—without the turkey.

Soup season is in full swing over here.

And this lemon ginger couscous version is so soul warming and nourishing. It is exactly what you need after a long day of work. Or on a sunday night with a loaf of crusty bread and some parmesan cheese.

That sounds so perfect right now.

In this episode of “how many different ways can we make chicken soup,” we’re adding a ton of fresh ginger, some fresh lemon and lots of vegetables. It’s DELISH.

The thing is, I have SO many chicken soup recipes that I love. I actually have an old lemon chicken soup recipe that is super good – I based this one on that! Earlier this year (feels like a lifetime ago, right?!) I made this chicken and orzo soup too! And my creamy chicken tortellini soup is DIVINE.

This chicken noodle egg drop soup is also really good. And I have a chicken and gnocchi soup that I make frequently, coming to you in the new year! 

This one is definitely ranking high up on the favorites list right now. It’s so warming and cozy from the ginger. It has that bright something special from the lemon!

And the couscous is what really makes it shine. It’s fantastic.

We LOVE couscous in this house. I will go as far to say I love it more than rice or any other grain that I may make as a side dish. I don’t serve it as a pasta – it always replaces a grain for us. And the pearl couscous is the absolute BEST. I love how huge it is. The texture is chewy but soft at the same time. It’s perfect for soup. 

I also love how EASY it is for soup. Throw it in and it will cook in 10 minutes or so. It’s really simple and adds such a satisfying element to soup.

One of the reasons I love this soup is the same reason I love chopped salads: everything is small and you can fit a bite of everything all on one spoon. My favorite! The couscous also makes the soup feel heartier than traditional egg noodles. It’s still brothy, but gives you the feel of having more in the soup.

This is a meal you can easily throw together on a weeknight. I like to use a rotisserie chicken for ease. If you don’t have one, you can either use leftover chicken or make 2 chicken breasts and chop them.

My go-to method for making chicken breasts for soup is actually boiling them – throw them in some water, bring to a boil and cook until done. So easy! (more…)

At Last, a Dry Buttermilk Brine. But How?

If you’ve wet-brined a chicken or Thanksgiving turkey, odds are you’re familiar with the concept of dairy as the base of that brining solution. The lactic acid in milk, yogurt , buttermilk, even feta helps tenderize the bird by breaking down protein walls. Though the result is incredibly moist meat, the dairy-brining process is messy, there’s no way around it. But what if I told you that the most tender buttermilk-brined turkey actually requires no liquid at all?

Meet the dry-buttermilk-brined turkey. You’ll mix powdered buttermilk—literally just a dehydrated version buttermilk—with salt and pepper, and rub it all over the skin.

Poule au pot

  King Henry IV of France promised “a chicken in every pot every Sunday” to the French back in the 17th century and things haven’t changed much since then.

King Henry IV of France promised “a chicken in every pot every Sunday” to the French back in the 17th century and things haven’t changed much since then. Chicken remains a classic French Sunday meal, as the lines for roast chickens prove at the markets and butcher shops on the weekends will attest to.

People in France eat chicken on other days of the week but some consider it a second-place meat and for years beef was seen as the most luxurious and healthy choice. My first housecleaner told me that I needed to eat beef on more than one occasion, to be healthy. In recent years beef consumption has been falling in France, but I often choose chicken over beef, which Romain teases me about, saying it’s très américan to order it so often at restaurants, and sometimes call me le chicken man. But when I made this Poule au pot for him recently (at home, so he was happy), he said it was the best he’s ever had. And as you can tell, he’s a tough customer.

14 Ways to Use Lemon Curd—Including Your New Favorite Chicken

Lemon curd dates back to at least the early 19th century in England, but it’s changed a whole lot since then. It started not as the velvety, creamy confection we know and adore today. Rather, it was cream curdled (get it?) with the addition of lemon juice, then separated from the whey through cheesecloth.

Nowadays fruit curds resemble jams much more than cheeses. Curds differ from custards (like pastry cream) in that they hinge on fruit juice versus dairy, which makes them more tart and zingy affairs, though they are just as smooth and silky.
