Forget all the complicated tricks you have been told will give you the crispiest fried chicken. I have the secret, and I am sharing it with you today! It is pretty easy and is probably something you have in your pantry already…Argo® Corn Starch! Instead of using flour only, using a half and half split of flour and Argo® Corn Starch will help give you the crispiest fried chicken that is juicy on the inside and crispy and airy on the outside. The Argo® Corn Starch is what will make your fried chicken recipe outstanding.

For our secret ingredient, the only brand I use is Argo® Corn Starch because it is the best and leading corn starch brand with over 100 years of quality and trust over multiple generations. The Argo® yellow container with the blue lid is so familiar and can be found in most households. Argo® Corn Starch is naturally gluten free, which is great for those following a gluten free diet. Most people know corn starch mainly as a thickening ingredient for sauces, but it has other uses in addition to making the crispiest chicken. Here are other ways to use corn starch:

  1. Corn starch is a good binding agent for baked goods. It is the glue that holds desserts together including puddings, cookies, and pies.
  2. Coating marinated meat or veggies with corn starch is a popular technique in Asian cooking, as it helps give the meat a nice crisp, velvet texture very quickly.
  3. Adding Argo® Corn Starch to your sheet pan tofu before cooking will make it nice and crunchy on the outside. This is great when making a tofu salad or rice bowl.
  4. Use it when making ice cream. Yes, Argo® Corn Starch can be added to homemade ice cream recipes too. Adding Argo® Corn Starch to an ice cream mix helps bind the ingredients, prevents ice crystals forming and creates a smoother ice cream texture.

The Crispiest Sriracha Fried Chicken Recipe

Fried chicken is such a great treat, and when it is homemade, you can control what goes in it and how it is made. This crispiest chicken recipe can be baked, deep fried, or air fried. For this recipe, we use an air fryer instead of deep frying in oil for lower fat content. The chicken is marinated in buttermilk and Sriracha sauce, dipped in an egg wash, then coated with the 50% Argo® Corn Starch and 50% flour combination, mixed with garlic powder, onion powder, dried herbs and paprika. It is very simple. You can get your crispiest chicken with Argo® Corn Starch.

Good Eats Boston: Pauli’s

I finally went to the popular Pauli’s sandwich shop in Boston and I totally get what the fuss is about. This place is awesome and it is an easy choice for this week’s good eat’s Boston feature. What I love about Pauli’s is that there is nothing pretentious about it, just super good food and excellent service. 

Pauli's Skinny Vinny Salad

The restaurant is small but with enough room to fill a decent amount of people. I went there on Saturday afternoon around 2:30 pm and it was pretty packed which is a good sign.  I was with my hubby who ordered the lobster roll and I ordered the Skinny Vinny Sandwich. If you love seafood you cannot visit Pauli’s without trying their famous  lobster roll. You have the option to have it warm or cold. We prefer the warm version most of the time so we chose to have it warm. It was absolutely delicious even my husband who grew up around great seafood said it was really good which says a lot. 

The Skinny Vinny Sandwich which is made with eggplant, fresh mozzarella, roasted red peppers & pesto sauce is delicious. I am always worried when I order eggplant because some restaurants mess it up but this one was perfectly crisp on the outside and well seasoned. We loved the Skinny Vinny sandwich so much we decided to order the salad version for take-out. Similar to the sandwich the salad includes mixed greens, red onion, grape tomato, cucumber, green pepper, eggplant, fresh mozzarella, roasted red peppers and a house made basil pesto sauce is amazing.

So the next time you are in Boston, head over to Pauli’s and try one of their delicious sandwiches, Salads or wraps. I promise you will not be disappointed. I feel like it is a stop everyone should make when they visit Boston. I plan on going back to try their fish and chips and clam chowder. 

Pauli’s is located in Boston’s buzzing North End district and is easily accessible on the subway if you not driving.

Good Eats Boston: The new By Chloe Carrot Dog

Boston’s restaurant scene is hot with so many new restaurants opening and new menu offerings. One of my favorite new menu item is the Carrot Dog from By Chloe, a vegan spot with 4 locations in Boston including the buzzing Boston Seaport area. By Chloe has become a regular feature on our Good Eats Boston series and for good reason. They know how to do vegan food well.

By Chloe Carrot Dog

I know what you are thinking, Carrot Dog sounds like a very out of the box hot dog style. Should you try it? My answer is yes, It’s delicious! Once you hear how it is made it will all make sense. 

The Carrot Dog is made from whole, hand-picked carrots that have been cured and seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic and oregano, smoked over local oak and maple wood, aged, and then grilled. It’s served classic NY style with sauerkraut and Sir Kensington’s Classic Yellow Mustard in a toasted potato bun. Sounds good, right? I am actually mad at myself for not thinking about this first. 

If you stop at By Chloe I highly recommend trying some of their sweets too. From red velvet cupcakes,  donuts to cookies, they have it all. You can also order smoothies and ice cream that are much needed this summer.

Easy Meatless Hot Dogs

 Ever throw a summer party and find out one of your guests does not eat meat. You find yourself  scrambling around the kitchen because you don’t want to serve them some boring cauliflower dish. The good news is these days there are so many plant based options that go beyond cauliflower and soy. 

As you may already know I am following a mostly plant based diet with occasional meat dishes only 20% of the time. I have learned to create delicious meatless meals out of necessity and it has been a thing of beauty. Brands like Beyond Meat and Light Life have mastered the art of creating meatless products that make a mostly plant based diet easy for folks like me who are flexitarians. 

I have always used Beyond Meat products but decided to try the Lightlife brand to switch things around. I was pretty happy with the way they turned out. We made hot dogs using the Italian Sausage and Bratwurst flavor sausages toped with onions and peppers. It was so delicious even the hubby was pretty satisfied. 

So the next time you are faced with the decision of what to serve a non-mean eater for your next barbecue don’t sweat it. Just grab some plant based sausage or burger and you are good to go. They will love you for it.

A day in the town of Hingham, MA

We are now in middle of summer and I am absolutely loving the feel of warm sunshine touching my skin. As Charles Dickens said, the sun brings not light alone, but new life, hope, and freshness to man. I couldn’t agree more. Summer is awesome as it usually means vacations, day trips and little excursions. Last weekend I decided to hang out in the town of Hingham which is literally a 8 minute drive from our house. Although it is only next door, visiting Hingham always feels like I am somewhere far away.

Hingham is a coastal town located on the Boston’s South Shore. What I love about the town is that it has so much character. With many beautiful antique homes and historic districts the town is a photographer’s dream and is absolutely gorgeous. The town also goes all out during the holidays. I happened to go near the 4th of July weekend and the whole place was pretty decked out. 

The downtown area is super cute with coffee shops, boutiques, juice bars and restaurants. If you are looking for a vibrant city vibe you definitely will not find it in this town. This is the kind of town you go to if you want a relaxed and laid back environment. If you also love to be by the water there are so many nice areas to sit and enjoy the water views. I especially love grabbing a lavender coffee by Red Eye Coffee roasters and drinking it at the marina watching the birds.

It’s fair to say that Hingham is one of my favorite towns in Massachusetts as it has become my weekend hangout spot. It has so much to offer in terms of beauty, character and relaxation.
