Four-Star Stuffed Chicken Breasts May 30, 2009 The French technique of stuffing a chicken breast yields four-star results — but requires hours of labor. Our take uses a much simpler procedure with the same results. When matched with another French classic, green beans amandine, it’s a great menu for entertaining guests. The French technique of stuffing a chicken breast with forcemeat is a labor that includes skinning and boning a whole chicken, stuffing the breasts with the leg meat, and then wrapping them up in the skin. We’ll show you an abbreviated version of this French dish and teach you our foolproof version of green beans amandine, to accompany it.Recipes- Stuffed Chicken Breasts- Green Beans AmandineTasting Lab- Black PeppercornsEquipment Center- Meat Pounders

Breadmaking Simplified Jun 6, 2009 We’ve taken the trouble out of breadmaking with our Almost No Knead Bread and Soda Bread recipes. A no-knead approach to bread baking produces loaves that look like they’ve been baked in a professional bakery, but the bread varies in size and shape and the crumb lacks the complex yeasty, tangy flavor of a true artisanal loaf. We loved the ease of this approach—and the extraordinary crust on the bread—but we wanted our loaves to have a consistent shape and deeper flavor. The result is a tasty bread that rises high each time. We also reveal our Irish Soda Bread recipe, which is less sweet and easier to make than most American versions.Recipes- Almost No-Knead Bread- Skillet Soda BreadEquipment Center- Serrated KnivesScience Desk- Kneading and Autolysis
