The real highlights (and necessities!) of the sandwich are based on the fresh ingredients, and homemade teriyaki sauce. So let’s jump in and get started!

Comfort food Spotlight: Stuffed Chicken

Hello all and welcome back! I once again apologize for the drought in content as I’ve been trying to finish up this very tough semester. Fret not though, I promise to have several posts this week to make up for it. One of them will even be a review for a local food truck that has amazing food!

This recipe is for my signature stuffed chicken and is the first one that I developed completely on my own. I made it for my family and friends a few times and received great reviews all around, so I thought I’d share it with you all! Continue reading “Comfort food Spotlight: Stuffed Chicken”

Comfort food Spotlight: Chicken Alfredo

20170320_200902 (1)

Hello everyone! I’d like to welcome you back to TrueGrub for my latest recipe: Chicken Alfredo! Most of my experience with cooking is related to American cuisine, but I actually worked for a number of years at an Italian restaurant, and this allowed me to pick up some tips and tricks on cooking Italian dishes.

I love the core foundation of most Italian dishes: a tomato based sauce, pasta, and some sort of protein. I’ve dabbled with many tomato based sauces such as marinara, but when I think of comfort food one sauce really comes to mind: Alfredo! Alfredo is a dairy-based sauce that incorporates melted Parmesan cheese and several spices. It is a hearty sauce and probably not the best for those watching calories haha!

There are essentially three components to bringing together Chicken Alfredo successfully: the chicken, the pasta, and of course the sauce. Cooking the protein correctly is always important to a successful dish, but I believe the sauce is what really brings out the flavor in this case. Since this does require three different components, it can be a bit tricky to time all of them correctly but have no fear! I will provide some guidelines for you to make sure all of these ingredients come together to create a wonderful dish. Continue reading “Comfort food Spotlight: Chicken Alfredo”

Hello and welcome back to TrueGrub everyone!

I want to thank everyone for browsing through all my preparatory posts. I hope you’ve got your kitchens ready, because now the recipes are going to start coming in and man they are delicious!

There will still be kitchen prep posts every so often, and the point of those are to get your kitchen as aligned as possible with my own so the recipes will be easier for you to cook. I’m not asking any of my followers to go out and purchase anything if they don’t want, but just remember these are the products I will be using. Awesome! Now that we’ve got that squared away, let’s get to the sandwich of the day: The Reuben!

The Reuben: The featured sandwich today is an interesting one. It has as much of a rich history as it does a unique taste. The Reuben’s actual creator is hotly disputed among sandwich historians, and its origin ranges from delis in New York all the way to Nebraska. Many variations of the original recipe exist and have been renamed for the ingredients used, and also for what part of the country it is from. My recipe is adapted from my dad’s with a slight variation in regards to the original. Continue reading “Sandwich Sunday, feat. The Reuben!”
