Hello, I hope you love cooking chicken because today we won’t be talking about anything else. Chicken is one of those dishes, you know what kind, they have a place in every meal yet they can destroy all the work with one wrong ingredient added. I like to think that cooked chicken fits every dinner and every party. The key is knowing how to cook it and what spices to add, so the meat is tender and juicy, whatever the case. However, if you don’t know much about cooking as a whole and you still want chicken on the table, there are two recipes that you can try and not go wrong with. I can’t blame you if from time to time you have a sweet tooth, that’s why I suggest you take a look at more of our recipes and find the perfect dessert!
You’ve heard of it, it’s been around for more than cars and boats have existed, ladies and gentleman, Parmesan Chicken! Born in England, Middlesbrough, this recipe is so easy you might as well flick your wrist and be done with it, it’s the Justice League of food recipes. Parmesan Chicken is cooked by preheating your oven, mix the chicken breast with bread crumbs. All of that goes through flour and is then dipped into beaten eggs. Once everything is settled, the cooking of the chicken breast can begin.
The main ingredients include (but are not limited to) : boneless raw chicken breast, beaten eggs, olive oil, flour, sliced bread or bread crumbs, minced garlic, salt, ground pepper and a bay leaf.
The Chicken Schnitzel might sound familiar, that’s because it is similar to Parmesan Chicken, make no mistake though, they are two separate and different recipes and should not be confused. Still some people might associate the origins of the Schnitzel with Germany. The recipe was in fact popularized in Austria first, only to become a dish in the German cuisine after a short while.
Preparing the chicken.
Line up the chicken breast on waxed paper, beat eggs enough for all your chicken breasts and add grated cheese into the mix to create a paste-like mixture. Dip the chicken breast int the beaten eggs and cheese to create an even coat of mixture on top of your chicken. Season the chicken with spices and cook in a frying pan filled with canola oil for several minutes on each side and serve while the Schnitzel is still warm.
Before you make Schnitzel have your ingredients ready as follows : boneless raw chicken breast, grated parmesan cheese, 1 tablespoon canola oil, 1/4 butter sticks, flour, eggs and beaten eggs.
Instagram food photography is a trend and like all trends, people get on the hype train and they forget to step off. Photographers are often spotted in their natural habitats, restaurants or coffee shops. You will see them pulling out their cameras and phones just to take photos of some freshly cooked spaghetti and salad on the side. They climb trees, tables and chandeliers for the perfect shot. After they meet their goal of being noticed by as many people as possible, their souls are finally at ease and the consumption of some gluten free, ice salad can begin, at last.
The photos eventually end up looking photo realistic filled with color and awe. I enjoy doing this as well, but I’m not nearly as good as some of the people I am about to feature in today’s post. I’m also far from climbing the Empire State Building to photo my bowl of cereal down at the edge of sidewalk while rain drips from the sky forming puddles around my soon to be feast.
If you love Crêpe you might want to pick up a droll bib before scrolling further. Underneath we have a beautiful shot of Crepes filled with Nutella, Whipped Cream, Vanilla and red berries. Photo taken by love_food.
Doughnot dare skip the next art piece, it mixes a cop’s favorite snack with one of the best holidays of the year. Pumpkin spiced donuts with coconut and maple sauce. Food photography is taking baby steps but making nice progress at the same time! Photo taken by spoonforkbacon.
I know it’s a little late for a spooky theme but I just couldn’t not add this in the picture, it’s an Oreo flavored spooky I scream! The puns are getting out of control already. Photo taken by dailyfoodfeed.
At this very moment, somewhere, an Italian chef is getting ready for a vendetta. The abomination you are about to witness below is a cross breeding species between a pizza and a some kind of cheese sandwich. Beautiful picture but my eyes are starting to tear up so let’s move on. Photo taken by thenaughtyfork.
A sandwich can be consumed at any time of the day, breakfast, lunch and brunch too! You know you are going the right way if your chef senses start tingling, like the Spider Sense, only instead of being hyper aware you get a sense of pride, warmth and hyperactivity.

As the grand opening grows closer with each moon, we have decided to mix up our menu. We plan on adding new foreign dishes, from all over the world. From the northern cuisines of Europe to the spicy after-taste of Latin America, to Asian delicacies and back. Each one will be added on our to do lists and you will be able to order all of it, in the restaurant or at home once the app is all ready for release, speaking of which. We’d like some feedback regarding our restaurant’s app, what would you like it to look like, what features should it contain. We also want to add a way to build your own dishes. Say you don’t want onion on your burger, you can just rule onion out as an option, extra sauce and more ways to customize your culinary experience.
We have partnered up with the folks over at legolas fans, they help us, we help them as best as we can, we want to share with you a Clash Royale Hack made by the people that run the website, maybe you play games and you have a hard time trying to get resources, we have a solution. As far as the app goes a friend suggested we should add an account system, for easy management. This way, regulars will get discounts, or extras from time to time, a way of saying thank you for ordering from us on a regular basis.
What to expect after remastering our menu!
The new foreign dishes on the block are led by the almighty German Sausage (Wurst). One of my friends is a vegetarian, I respect his decision, but I don’t know how they abstain themselves from drooling all over the table at the sight of such rare delicacies.
Fiambre is an Latin American dish usually consumed in the month of November (for some reason). It mostly consists of bunches of cold cuts put together with parsley sprinkled on top. You’ve got some cut up tomatoes and boiled eggs to top it off, but I think I’ll just go for the meat. I suggest you leave boiled eggs out, they don’t add anything worth mentioning. Like any dish in our place, Fiambre is highly flexible, you can opt out from certain ingredients, don’t eat meat? Not a problem! Parsley is too green? It is. You know the drill.
The Asian cuisine was the hardest part. There’s so many different regions and so little time to choose just one, so why not choose two? India and China will both have a place in our restaurant with food that will force Genghis Khan to peak through our windows.
The famous Indian Chicken Tikka Masala is made of marinated chicken dipped in curry, it has an orange-ish color and it is usually served hot, like most human foods. Some of you may not be fans of curry, or spicy foods all in all. We also have Chicken Tikka Masala with no curry what so ever, trying to cover as much common ground as possible for everyone!
Chinese take-away is famous in the United States, two elements stand behind the success of the Chinese food industry. Fast delivery time and the multi cultural diversity people are looking for. Dumplings. Bet you didn’t see it coming, nobody expects the dumpling inquisition. Dumplings come in many forms : meat, wheat and flour to name a few. Church Street Tavern will mainly try to focus on meat vegetable filled dumplings. We are completely aware they are not traditional dumplings, but they are Chinese.
Follow us on Facebook, Tumblr and Pinterest to be up to date with the newest changes to the restaurant. You will also receive a notification when the opening night grows closer!
Burger Building Contest
You might not know this yet, but our Burger Building Contest is on. Believe me when I tell you, it will go down to the last burger standing. Every Monday evening we’ll announce the best burger builders at the tavern, it all starts at around 6PM. Contestants will be able to add anything they wish to their burger, in food and stock limitations obviously. Anyone who wishes to join is free to do so, it’s open to the public. If you feel like you only want to watch the show I suggest grabbing a cold drink, kicking back in your seat and prepare for the start of the event. When everything is said and done all the customers will vote their favorite burger over the course of one week. We’ll crown the winner of the contest one week after the event has taken place and enough votes came through.
We are developing an app for our restaurant. You will soon be able to download for your Android/iOS phones from Google Play respectively App Store. Orders can be placed through the app, delivery is available all over New York City! If your order hasn’t arrived in less than 45 minutes then you can consider the delivery free. Customers will also be able to send in pictures of their best looking dishes that they made at home for our yearly contest or for the burger building contest that takes place this month.
Update : As the first contest had lots of potential winners we came to the conclusion that they too deserve a chance to win. It’s time to start all over, the new contest is a Go! Same rules, same place.
In order to join the contest, you need to build a more than good looking burger and send a picture of it to us using our contact information or through the app once we release it. You could even try sending the whole burger, or the recipe for it but I doubt the post office allows that. On second thoughts they probably allow recipes.
One more thing, please do not send those Instagram filter filled photos of your burgers. They look awful and make some of us hate burgers. As for the dish contest, it takes place all year. Dishes will no longer be limited to burgers only! You can cook whatever your soul feels like cooking and send us a gaze of it in the form of a picture. More news will be published soon on our Facebook page, keep your eyes peeled.
