Buttermilk Dill Chicken

Buttermilk Dill Chicken | bsinthekitchen.com #dinner #chicken #bsinthekitchen

Having buttermilk and chicken in my fridge, and after seeing an episode of Michael Smith’s Chef at Home where he marinates chicken in buttermilk, I quickly scanned my surroundings… Surely I wasn’t just watching the Food Network, but it was watching ME…

Well, turns out it wasn’t. But I took it as a sign, and did the next logical thing – marinated my chicken in buttermilk.

Of course, given that I had a few other ingredients I was looking to use up (namely dill), I perused the internets and found an appropriate recipe to guide me.

I know buttermilk is supposed to help make things tender and juicy, but given that I used drumsticks, which are already pretty tender and juicy, I can’t really say how much of a difference it made. But what I can say, is they were DILL-icious (I went there…), they were slightly tangy from the buttermilk and lemon, with a plenty of dill flavour, all complimented by the always wonderful garlic!

Apple Juice Brined Pork Chops

While I’m an avid fan of pork chops, I can still fall victim to the common problem of overcooking them! Fortunately this is where brining comes into play. Having never actually brined something, I was looking forward to the results and decided to go with a fairly simple brine.

Roast Chicken with Lemon & Dill | JC100 – Week 8

It’s hard to believe we are already on week eight of the Julia Child celebration. This week’s French cooking assignment was a roasted chicken. Like Bob & I’s other posts, we wanted to jazz things up a bit so we did a lemon dill roasted chicken. Is it possible to ever go wrong with lemon and dill?! This chicken was moist, full of flavour and easy to make! Let’s get to the recipe so you can start cooking it too! Continue reading

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Why is it that everyone always seems to be hunting for that perfect ooey, gooey, chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe? Maybe because the Chocolate Chip is a cookie classic, maybe because it encases a bit of sweet with a touch of salty, either way, we can all almost guarantee that Chocolate Chip Cookies are not going away. I hunted down this recipe and decided to give it a shot. Thanks to Canadian Chef & total hottie, Michael Smith, for this recipe. Continue reading

Best Red Velvet Cake or Cupcakes Recipe

Red velvet is one of my favourite cakes. Everyone thinks it’s really fancy, but let’s get real here – it’s super easy. Just think of it as a mellowed chocolate cake with some kick (all thanks to our buddy vinegar). In the past, I religiously used the Magnolia Bakery Red Velvet cake from their great cookbook, but found it to be a tad dry and dense, so I decided to switch it this time to Chef Cake Man Raven‘s Red Velvet Cake recipe. WOW. I’m happy I switched! These cupcakes were perfectly moist, melt in your mouth delicious and nice and light. Continue reading

Savoury Saskatoon Berry Brined Duck

As many dedicated BS’ers know, I work with a lot of passionate foodies. This recipe came from one of those foodies and I promise it doesn’t disappoint. It’s also relatively easy to make and can be used to brine almost any type of poultry from duck, chicken, turkey, etc. Brining slowly cooks the meat, allowing the enzymes in the meat to be broken down by the salt; resulting in a vary savoury, moist dish. I matched this dish with an excellent blue cheese gravy. The gravy itself it to die for – packed full of goodness! But let’s get crackin’ to the recipe:
