The Flavors of Europe: A Mediterranean Exploration of Flavor

Europe is a continent brimming with culinary treasures. But delve even closer to the Mediterranean region and a rich tapestry of flavors that have captivated food lovers for centuries stands out from the continent. Here, we embark on a delectable journey through the Mediterranean, highlighting three delightful recipes that showcase the diverse and captivating tastes of Europe. Each recipe holds a fascinating origin story, reflecting the creativity, cultural influences, and unique culinary traditions of their respective regions. So, let's jump into the tantalizing world of Southern European cuisine!

Crispy Chicken Niçoise Salad

Get ready for a refreshing and satisfying salad that celebrates the vibrant flavors of the Mediterranean. We've replaced the classic tuna with Just BareⓇ Lightly Breaded Chicken Breast Filets, perfectly complementing the hard-boiled egg, crunchy green beans, juicy grape tomatoes, briny olives, and a simple Dijon vinaigrette that ties it all together. This variation of the traditional Niçoise Salad originated in Nice, France, a coastal city known for its beautiful beaches and vibrant cuisine. The addition of crispy chicken breast filets adds a delightful twist, providing a crunchy texture and savory flavor.

Osso Bucco

Originating from Italy, Osso Bucco is a classic dish that traditionally features veal shanks braised to perfection. However, a twist on this Italian favorite introduces tender Just BareⓇ Chicken Drumsticks as an alternative. With its origins in Milan, Osso Bucco is said to have been created by a legendary chef named Salvatore Radicchio. The dish showcases a special cooking technique where the meat is slowly braised with vegetables, white wine, and broth until it becomes tender and flavorful. The result is a rich and succulent dish that embodies the essence of Italian comfort food. Milan, known as the fashion capital of the world, also boasts a rich culinary heritage.

Crispy Baked Chicken Strips with Tomato Bruschetta and Balsamic Glaze

This everyday favorite offers a playful twist on the classic Italian bruschetta. Originating from the picturesque country of Italy, bruschetta is a beloved dish that traces its roots back to ancient Rome. In its original form, bruschetta consisted of toasted bread rubbed with garlic and topped with fresh, sun-ripened tomatoes, aromatic basil leaves, and a drizzle of local olive oil. It served as a humble peasant's meal, using simple ingredients to celebrate the bountiful flavors of the Mediterranean. 

This modern adaptation replaces the traditional bread with Just BareⓇ Lightly Breaded Chicken Strips, adding a satisfying crunch and a protein-packed twist to the dish. The tomato bruschetta takes center stage, allowing the flavors to meld and intensify, highlighting the innate sweetness of the tomatoes. The chicken strips, baked to crispy perfection, provide a delightful contrast of textures and flavors that elevates this appetizer to new heights of culinary enjoyment.

The flavors of Europe transport us on a culinary adventure, embracing the diverse tastes and cultural influences that define this captivating region. From the refreshing Crispy Chicken Niçoise Salad, inspired by the sunny shores of Nice, to the heartwarming Osso Bucco from the culinary capital of Milan, and the delightful Crispy Baked Chicken Strips with Tomato Bruschetta and Balsamic Glaze, these recipes encapsulate the essence of their respective regions. As we savor these dishes, let us appreciate the creativity and passion that have shaped Europe's vibrant culinary landscape, allowing us to experience a melting pot of flavors in the comfort of our own kitchens.

Riffs On Ramen

Noodle shop quality at home.

No matter how popular ramen gets or how celebrated noodle shops become (a nine-seat restaurant in Tokyo earned a Michelin star in 2016), there remains one essential truth about ramen and other noodles served ramen style. Nothing warms the heart like home cooking. Home, in fact, is where the love of noodles reaches its fullest expression. Nourishing, satisfying, welcoming. What’s for dinner? Chicken Miso Ramen, just the way you like it. 

Wisdom of the ancients.

When you measure the history of anything in millennium, there’s a lot to talk about. And noodles go back at least 4,000 years. In recent decades, ramen earned a reputation as a budget friendly student staple, but that version is fried and dehydrated for fast cooking. Other options are now available to make fresh and serve in a wider range of settings.

By definition ramen noodles are wheat noodles. You’ll also find noodles in similar shapes and sizes made from rice and buckwheat, as well as other wheat noodles such as udon and somen. But ramen — which originated in China and soared to popularity in Japan after World War II — is a wheat product and is made with kansui, a mineral-rich water that’s alkaline and gives the noodles their golden color.

Broth basics, a not-so-secret process.

Much of the mystique ramen enjoys comes from the hearty broths almost always associated with the dish. The recipe for Chicken Miso Ramen outlines the steps, and note that you’ll need 2-4 hours to simmer a whole chicken (removing and refrigerating the meat after an hour and returning the bones to the stockpot). Only at the end, after you’ve strained the broth and are moments away from dinner, do you whisk in the miso along with pre-cooked noodles and shredded chicken.

What’s miso? Miso is made from fermented soybeans, sometimes with toasted barley or rice. It’s a key ingredient in Japanese cooking and exemplifies umami, considered one of the five basic taste perceptions along with sweet, sour, salty and bitter. Parmesan cheese and grilled steaks are other examples of umami. Here, miso gives this dish a rich, savory depth of flavor.

What’s your fancy?

Here’s where a humble bowl of noodles gets all showy. Top it with Napa cabbage, lotus root and corn? Perfect. Or what about carrot slices, mushrooms, hard-boiled eggs and a dash of garlic chile sauce? That’s another great combo, and the options are endless. Friends and family can complete their meals however they like. That’s the beauty of ramen. It’s a versatile backdrop for healthy, great tasting meals everyone loves.

Your own personal Zen state.

Simple yet infinitely adaptable, ramen opens the mind to all kinds of possibilities. Chicken Miso Ramen is an easy first step towards discovering the joy this age-old noodle brings to today’s favorite meals.

Cacciatore Creativity

Translating a classic.

Every few hundred years or so it’s a good idea to take a fresh look at a classic dish. An Italian-American favorite with roots in Italy going back centuries, chicken cacciatore is the perfect recipe to expand upon because variations have existed over time. In Italian, the word cacciatore means hunter, and it’s common to hear chicken cacciatore described as a hunter’s chicken stew. In Italy, though, the dish is more often known as pollo alla cacciatora, which actually means the hunter’s wife’s chicken stew. Whose dish is it, his or hers? It’s time to make it yours.

All the ingredients for a successful makeover.

The essence of chicken cacciatore is the combination of a lean meat, aromatic vegetables and savory mushrooms. Some early forms of chicken cacciatore don’t include tomatoes, which arrived in Italy in the 16th century as the result of explorations in the Americas and gradually became accepted as an edible food. But the version of chicken cacciatore popularized in Italian-American cooking in the 1950s usually features a red sauce, typically thick and heavy.

This new recipe for Refreshed Chicken Cacciatore calls for diced tomatoes plus sun-dried tomatoes. It also includes pimiento-stuffed olives for a sweet-and-salty bonus. Pre-cooking bacon or pancetta adds a depth of flavor to go along with the olive oil you’ll use to sauté the chicken thighs and veggies. It all comes together in the skillet for 15 minutes of braising, which in fact is the secret for why this recipe is so beloved.

In praise of the braise.

Though braising is similar to simmering in the sense there’s liquid and low heat, the two cooking techniques are different. With braising, you’re using just a small amount of liquid or sauce to finish cooking a main ingredient — usually meat — that’s already been sautéed and browned. When you’re simmering a stew, in contrast, all ingredients are completely submerged.

Braising can be a lengthy process, but it doesn’t have to be. Here, it’s just 15 minutes in a light sauce you create from red bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, diced tomatoes and white wine or chicken broth. The veggies stay crisp, and the chicken remains tender and moist.

Finish with farro.

Chicken cacciatore pairs perfectly with your favorite rustic bread or rice, but there’s an ideal option even older than the recipe itself and also associated with historic Italian cuisine. Serve your chicken cacciatore with farro, which looks and tastes like a light brown rice. It’s sometimes called emmer, and this high fiber whole grain contributes B vitamins, zinc, iron and protein.

If you’re on the hunt for a fresh new take on a classic recipe, try Refreshed Chicken Cacciatore. It’s yours to savor and enjoy, a healthy new variation that makes a great meal even better.
