This chicken is inspired by the well-named “Famous Garlic Aromatic Crispy Chicken” at Wu’s Wonton King in New York City. The key to the perfect texture, browned skin and shreddable meat is starting at a super-high heat and dropping the temp the second that the bird goes into the oven. The glaze requires a few rounds of shellacking before it sticks, so, uh, stick with it. And because you have this sticky chicken skin, you need exxxxxtra crunch for textural contrast in the form of fried shallot, garlic and ginger.
Preheat the oven to 450 F.
Season the chicken inside and out with salt and pepper, really getting into all of the crevices. Let the chicken hang out for at least 1 hour at room temperature, which will help the meat absorb the salt. If you can season a few days in advance and let
The problem with tomatoes, at this time of the year, is that they can make me lazy. They’re just too good as they are: sliced, drizzled with olive oil and paired with cheese. Caprese, Greek salad: I could (and pretty much do!) eat them every day in the summer. It’s brilliant to be reminded, then, of how wonderfully versatile they are, happily baked, cooked, squished, braised and fried in all sorts of suitably summery dishes.

As someone who writes about air frying a lot, I’ve noticed a few general categories of recipes you’ll find online. You’ve got your hacks, your (often gross) stunt food, your diet versions of calorie-heavy favorites, and recipes for what’d I’d call actual, good food.
This week’s AirFryDay recipe, based on this TikTok from @everything_delishis most certainly really good food. The recipe for chicken skewers is simple but delicious. With just a basic marinade and a few minutes in the air fryer, you get juicy, flavorful chicken. The final product would go well on a salad, or with rice, or as a part of a bigger summer cookout. It’s a versatile, tasty recipe.
Here’s what you need to know if you want to give it a try.
1 chicken breast, cubed into 1-inch pieces.
1 cup, plain Greek yogurt. (I used nonfat, but any kind will work.)
Greek street food is a major summer vibe that we ALWAYS want to cash in on. Chicken Souvlaki, Tzatziki and a good old Greek Salad are some of our fave hot weather dinners for when the fresh produce is at its best and the sun is shining.
If you want to recreate that Greek terrace vibe at home, these Greek Stuffed Pittas are a must. Packed full of flavour, these pockets are a cheap, delicious meal that will send you straight to the Greek islands.
Frying your pitta pockets slowly to ensure the chicken is cooked all the way through is key. If you’re worried, you can bake the stuffed pittas after they’ve been fried for an additional 10 minutes at 190℃ (170℃ Fan) for 10 minutes. The chicken mince mix can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for up to two days before, making this a SUPER speedy
Cheesecakes are a few of the most decadent deserts ever created. The pasta options at The Cheesecake Manufacturing unit are giant servings with a high quantity of fat and calories. In case you really feel the urge to purchase a pasta dish, ask for a take-out container when your food comes and place two-thirds of the meal into the container. The Cheesecake Factory desserts are excessive in Weight Watchers points. For those who must have a slice of cheesecake, select the low-carb unique cheesecake and break up it with two or three people. This cheese is high in fats but has the bottom energy. One slice of low-carb cheesecake has approximately 14 Weight Watchers points.
The verdict: Adam seems to have performed all the things right where the opposite peanut butter cup cheesecake failed. The Butterfinger bits are essential as hell. The peanut butter ganache on the top is a … Read more
