Karl’s Southwestern Indian Chicken

When someone refers to Southwestern cooking, most people would immediately assume some version of Mexican cooking—New Mexican, Cal-Mex, Tex-Mex. Mexican dishes  with an American influence—or vise versa. However, there were people and cooking going on in the Southwest long before the Spanish got there to influence the cuisine.

Karl’s Chicken in Plum Sauce

I was wondering around Lion Market yesterday, thinking about what I would make for dinner—this is actually my normal state of being. I was looking at the Lee Kum Kee sauces for ones I had not tried yet. I settled on plum sauce.

Karl’s Moroccan Chicken Wings

It is Memorial Day and barbecue is the traditional way of celebrating. Son-in-law, Chris, is avoiding sugary foods, so many a barbecue sauce was out. I decided that a spice rub would be the way to go.

Karl’s Chicken Bone Broth Chili Bean Soup

I roasted a chicken with the express intent of having a carcass to make bone broth later in the week. When the kids decided not to come for dinner, I was left with more than the usual amount of leftovers. After the first meal, I made tacos with the breast meat. With the bits that remained I made this soup.

Karl’s Leftover Chicken Fajita Tacos

I had made a chili chicken for Sunday’s dinner and had plenty of chicken to work with in making other meals. If the chicken is already cooked, tacos are a quick and easy weeknight meal. If you have not roasted a chicken, a deli chicken  makes a good substitute.

Karl’s Three Chile Roast Chicken

I was thinking of roast chicken for Sunday night’s dinner. Last week, I ran out of ancho chile powder and when I went shopping, I picked up several different ground chilies. Jan had requested bone broth later in the week, so I did not want my chicken to be too spicy.

Karl’s Meyer Lemon Chicken Soup

Jan and I have colds this week, so she asked for chicken soup for dinner. It is Meyer lemon season and I thought that a garlic lemon soup would be the thing to make. Jan was unsure about this, because she thought it would be too sour. My solution was to add a dollop of lemon curd to cut the citric acid.
