Nashville Hot Chicken

Hot Chicken by Natalie Paramore

 

I recently visited Nashville and had to try the hot chicken there. I saw all the bright red pictures of chicken and just couldn’t be kept away! Of course, once I got back home I’ve been craving it more than ever. So I grabbed a recipe from Bon Appetit, that is based off of Hattie B’s Hot Chicken, which is where I had my first hot chicken. Tell me what you think about this one!

Coconut Jerk Chicken with Mango Salsa (and a Giveaway!)

Coconut Mango Jerk Chicken_Natalie Paramore 5

 

A while back I got the opportunity to partner with one my favorites, The National Mango Board, to work on a recipe for their new cookbook which launched at BlogHer Food in Miami a few weeks ago. I got to get a little creative and come up with a fun recipe using one of my favorite ingredients, the ever popular mango! I love, love, love mango salsa and updated a recipe I have used before to make this one. I wanted something that would capture the tropical spirit of Miami and add a little heat (hello jerk spice!) that would be perfect to serve year round. After doing a little research and calling on some chef friends, the conclusion I came to was that it’s really not that hard to make your own jerk seasoning and chances are you probably already have most of the spices hanging around in your kitchen. I love the flavor combination of spicy and coconut, it is one of my go to’s. It only seemed fitting for this recipe adventure to include them both! You can find my recipe online here, or you can enter to win a copy of the National Mango Board Cookbook! All you have to do is follow my blog on Facebook. Just click here to like my page!
