Default Pictures of your cooking.

This place is sorely lacking food pictures. It almost makes me miss Facebook.

Post a picture of *what you make* here. Anyone can buy stuff.

Dinner tonight: chicken tikka masala with drumsticks. Total cost probably around $10 for dinner for four or in our case two dinners for two.

Crap - saw this too late for photos. We had smoked pork chops, with wild rice and cranberries.

Have you ever tried using deboned thighs?

Crazy beard - that Tikka looks first class. How do you keep the skin from getting soggy? I can' t stand soggy skin on dark meat chicken (or any chicken).

I love cooking chicken in those type sauces. Cheap, can make a ton, don't ever get tired of it.

Not very "American" to cook fish whole but when we are in other parts of the world it is the norm.

I love whole fish looks delish!

There's always next time.

I have used bone in thighs for this dish a few times. I prefer the bone in because I think it is juicier (and it's also cheaper) but tonight we were talking about buying some of the boneless thighs to try it on skewers - read below and you'll see why for this dish specifically.

Thighs are my favorite cut of chicken - so much flavor!

Thanks! Yeah, rubbery chicken skin is disgusting. It isn't too hard - the biggest thing is cooking the chicken really really hot before adding it to the sauce. Don't cook it in the sauce until you get the texture you want. We don't have a grill (stupid apartment rules) otherwise I'd do that, but I put a pan on hot with nothing in it to the point it was almost smoking, then dropped the chicken in. About 5 min, rotating constantly so it doesn't burn. Reduce heat, cook some more until about 75% done. Then simmer in the sauce for 10 min or until cooked but still juicy. This is harder to do with bone-in because it retains the moisture more, which is why we may try the deboned next time.

Yeah buddy! Not too many people make whole fish. That's awesome! I've been wanting to try the salt-crusted ones myself, or in the fryer. A whole fried fish, Thai style is sooo good.

This recipe is ridiculously easy. Looks impressive if you actually do a nice presentation. This is before they hit the grill. Minimal prep
