Recipe News: Kid-friendly chicken nugget recipe includes potato chips

As this recipe from Tate Dawson, an 8-year-old from Doylestown, Pa., illustrates, it's never too early to get your children in the kitchen, especially when you can lure them by encouraging experimentation using their favorite foods as ingredients.

Here, Tate gives a new twist to chicken nuggets by incorporating barbecue potato chips as a coating. While I am sure many youngsters could probably come up with an all-inclusive potato chip meal, in this entree the coating adds flavor and crunch without being overwhelming. Parents can also take solace in knowing the nuggets are baked instead of fried.

And what the heck, since the kids are giving Mom or Dad the night off from cooking, go all out by serving their favorite sides, too.

  • Barbecue Potato Chip Chicken Nuggets

Recipe News: The don't-follow pasta recipe

Ever notice how certain dishes, even ones you made up yourself, seem to "belong" to other people? Like sautéed Swiss chard with garlic and red pepper flakes that "belongs" to my friend Carlos. It's not his recipe, but because I know he likes it, it's his dish. Or like the saffron-rich cioppino with big chunks of whitefish and a little minced ginger that "belongs" to my friend Lynn. Or the simplest-of-simple cheese-on-tortilla quesadilla with Lawry's seasoned salt. That belongs to my friend Jenn. I took informal stock the other day of the high-rotation dishes in my repertoire and realized that the dishes I make most are all associated with someone else. Like Andrea's martini. Danny's ziti. Henry's quesadilla. Susan's marinated pork loin. Mom's chocolate chip cookies. All the good stuff. My favorite of the bunch might be A's pasta, which belongs to my good friend Andy. A simple kitchen-cabinet pasta dish, A's pasta is a quick, savory supper, ready in as long as it takes to boil water and cook spaghetti. It's best consumed in the backyard, accompanied by a smooth pinot noir and followed with ginger cookies.

Recipe News: Flip over potato-crusted salmon

Wayne Sullivan of Riverside, Conn., an 11-year visitor to the island, emailed about a favorite dish. “Seven years ago we had the rehearsal dinner for our wedding at the National, and the potato-crusted salmon was the big hit. To this day I still have family asking me to try and get the recipe for this dish for them. If you could help, my family and I would be very grateful!”

It’s a testament to the appeal of this dish that it has actually been featured in Recipe Request before, as one of the first dishes ever asked for five years ago. In June 2002, Neva Flaherty of High Street wrote to say she missed ordering it at the Harborside Restaurant, where it had been a popular dinner entr/e until the hotel was sold. The previous owners kept the recipe, however, and moved it down the street to their other hotel, the National.

It’s still served there, although now, says National manager Julie Fuller, the dish is no longer on the regular menu or available at special functions. It is, however, offered as a special most nights.

Includes recipes for:

  • Potato crusted salmon

  • Tarragon beurre blanc
