Stacy Lyn Makes Farmer’s Style Chicken on Atlanta and Co.

Loved making The Farmer’s Style Chicken and Jalapeño Poppers on Atlanta & Company today! Christine Pullara, the host, is amazing. I got to talk about my new book, how to make two of my favorite recipes from the book, and spend time with amazing people. I even got to meet the guys from OolaLife! They have a new book out too!

I had a blast on the set of Atlanta and Company today! On top of that I got to exchange books and meet the guys from Oola Life! They are awesome.

Free Range Chickens tend to be a little more tough because they are allowed to forage for insects, and walk around using their muscles which result in more muscle fiber and connective tissue. A simple way to create tender meat with tons of flavor is to use a brine. It works every time!

The Farmer’s Style Chicken

The sauce that in which I simmer the meat is packed full of flavor. I use tomatoes, onions, garlic, rosemary, white wine (a chardonnay), a little broth, and thyme. You won’t know what happened when you taste this dish. Superb!

I hope this becomes a keeper in your home! Buy the bookFor the Jalapeño Poppers recipe click HERE.
