Chicken Curry (Kukul Mas)
A mainstay of Sri Lankan cuisine, this dish was the first curry I learned to make.

Baked Panko-Crusted Chicken Breast
This easy baked chicken dinner is deliciously light and perfect for any weather.
Chicken Pot Pie Fries
A chicken pot pie wouldn’t be the comforting, decadent dish that it is today without that flakey, golden brown crust canopied above white sauce, vegetables, and chicken. It becomes even more irreplaceable, though, when add that combination to some crispy, salty fries, like we did in this recipe. Don’t skip the crust, though, just because the fries are there.

When you are breaking down a chicken breast, the tenderloin is the strip or flap of meat attached to the larger, teardrop-shaped section.

Instead of baking it in a large dish, we also used gratin dishes to separate it into individual portions.
