  • Classic chicken salad

    • mfto on August 10, 2014

      A variation included in this recipe is Curried Chicken Salad with Cashews. This is my favorite chicken salad recipe. There is just the right amount of curry powder with the added sweet touch of golden raisins plus a touch of heat from cayenne pepper and the crunch of cashews. Since I cook for two, I always have leftovers when I bake a chicken. This chicken salad is a delicious use of the leftovers.

  • Chocolate-espresso Dacquoise

    • jtodes on April 20, 2014

      This is a showstopper of a cake. Everyone loved it and it makes a great presentation.

  • Catalan-style beef stew with mushrooms

    • Delys77 on November 19, 2012

      Pg 6. Technique and flavour wise this was a winner. I used my LD braiser to good effect here. The sofrito did add a huge depth of flavour and the white wine was very nice. Also, the suggested uncovered roasting did result in somewhat browned meat, not quite as much as browning the traditional way but definitely a reasonable cheat. I also loved the short ribs in this , I think I might try them in other stew recipes as they definitely stayed juicier. My only quibble is that my food processor didn't grind the nuts down quite a enough and there was a slight crunch to the sauce. In the future I might grind the nuts in a mortar and pestle to get more control over the texture of the ground nuts.

  • Chicken Marbella

    • Delys77 on March 04, 2012

      This was my first test kitchen recipe from cooks illustrated and I definitely see the advantage of this approach. The recipe yields an extremely flavourful sauce and super juicy breast. I actually went with two large breasts and it was just right for three people. The breast should fry skin down for 5 in your cat iron skillet. The only note would be that the sauce isn't too salty but the whole olives with the sauce are a bit salty. I would suggest cutting the number of whole olives back a bit, and maybe halve the olives.

  • French apple cake

    • emiliang on October 13, 2013

      Delicious, light, and easy to prepare. Texture in between a cake and a custard. Great for entertaining at home or for taking along to a dinner party because it needs to be prepared at least 3-4 hours before serving. Skipped the apple brandy and it was still great. Don't have a microwave so I sauteed the apples for a few minutes on the stove instead in a little bit of the oil.

  • Fresh pasta without a machine

    • bookrabbit66 on February 03, 2019

      Exceptionally easy recipe - plan on using regularly
