  • Emeril's Chicken Cacciatore

    Emeril's Chicken Cacciatore

    Also known as Hunter's Chicken. Chicken is cooked until tender in tomato sauce and served over pasta. As the story goes, if the hunter came home without a kill for dinner, the wife would cook a chicken. Not bad for second place! Toward the end of cooking, taste your sauce. If it is a bit on the acidic side, stir in a scant teaspoon of sugar. A little goes a far.

  • Gumbo Ya-Ya

    Gumbo Ya-Ya

    This is a take on the famous gumbo created by Chef Paul Prudhomme. The secret to making this flavorful stock is to use a big stewing hen (you can substitute two smaller chickens if you would prefer). Use at least 6 pounds of chicken so that the stock is very rich. Good stock makes good gumbo!
