A few weeks back Mark and I were guest on Hallmark Channel’s “Home and Family”. It’s a great domestic oriented morning show. No trash stories, helpful and fun. Wish it was on my cable carrier. Anyway, We did a Chicken Thigh Throwdown. Everyone thinks Mark is nightly making me great meals. My standard line was, “sure, if I went into his restaurant.” But, at home I do most of the cooking and since we don’t have any restaurants anymore and my work has been…meek.. the last couple of years I’ve been cooking more than ever.
The idea was Mark would do the “restaurant” or fancy version of chicken thighs and I would do the easy, your family will eat version.
As someone who made her living for years as a TV host I really appreciate a good host. Christina Ferrare and Mark Steines are great and improvising and brought out the best in us. It was the first time Mark and I have cooked together out of our home and it was a lot of fun. In case you want to try either dish, here are the recipes. Enjoy. http://www.hallmarkchannel.com/homeandfamily/recipe/markpeeldaphnebrogdonchickenthighthrowdown
