Creamy Dill Dressing for Fish & Chicken
Serves 4
Botanically known as Anethum graveolens and often mistaken for the feathery fronds of fennel, dill weed is actually a member of the parsley family and is native to the eastern Mediterranean region and western Asia. The word dill comes from the old Norse word dylla, meaning to soothe or lull. The taste of dill leaves resembles that of caraway, while the seeds are pungent and aromatic. Freshly cut, chopped leaves enhance the flavor of dips, herb butter, soups, salads, fish dishes and salads. Dills most popular use is in pickling and in sauces that accompany fish, chicken and vegetables. We hope you enjoy this delicious rendition.

Chicken Yakitori with Tokyo Negi

Chicken Yakitori with Tokyo Negi
Serves 4
Yakitori is quite simply an Eastern version of Kebabs. Meats and vegetables are marinated in a variety of sauces and grilled, usually over open coals, by street vendors or at small Yakitori stands scattered throughout the city. These stands can be recognized by small red lanterns out front, with the character for “tori”, or bird. Another clue to finding a yakitori-ya is the clouds of fragrant smoke coming from the vents. Customers stand or sit in the very few seats that may be available and enjoy their Yakitori with cold beer and plenty of conversation. Not surprisingly, yakitori-ya (restaurants and stands) are popular early-evening gathering places, filled with office workers stopping off for a quick snack before the train ride home.

  7. Optionally, you may want to wrap the ends of the wooden sticks with aluminum foil; otherwise, they may burn if the grill is too hot.

More Cluck for Your Buck: Rotisserie Chickens

Over the years, I’ve shared quite a few recipes, many of which I know people have thoroughly enjoyed. Among some of my favorites at Nino’s are the recipes using chicken from one of our favorite and most popular products, Nino’s Rotisserie Roasted Chickens.

Of course, these chickens are delicious all on their own, but they’re also great when used in other recipes, such as casseroles, fillings, soups and so many other recipes you could write a book just for them alone.

In the recent past, Nino’s has posted these terrific dishes:

Baked Chicken & Stuffing Casserole
Chicken and Dumplings
Chicken Quesadilla
Chicken, Sausage and Shrimp Jambalaya
Pesto Chicken & Farfalle (Bow Tie Pasta) Salad with Vegetables
Pulled Rotisserie Chicken Bistro Sauté
Chilled Chicken Salsa
Chicken and Mushroom Strudel

And recently, I’ve been inspired to create a couple of NEW recipes for these tasty birds. I know you and your family will really enjoy them!

Think crab cake, but instead, you’ll taste an Asian-inspired chicken cake that’s out of this world! The crust of panko crumbs and sesame seeds is particularly inviting.
