Featured Recipe: Dripping Thighs

Dripping Thighs

The way his apron hangs from his hips already has me all wobbly. But as he coats my thighs with sticky liquid I can hardly contain myself. Is it the wine, or is my aroma starting to drive him crazy too? He heats me up fast, it won’t take much too?

He heats me up fast, it won’t take much to finish me off now. His lips quirk up to a smile. My own juices are mixing with the coating and running all over the place. I get the strangest, sweetest, hedonistic feeling up and down. It’s epicureanism run wild!

He spreads my thighs out on a plate. Sticky hands and at least five wet napkins. What will the housekeeper think? Who cares?

Ingredients
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, patted dry with paper towels
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon plus pinch coarse kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. In a large bowl, toss the chicken, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper together.

In a small saucepan, simmer together onion, wine, bay leaf, cinnamon stick, and a pinch of salt until most of the liquid has evaporated, 15 to 20 minutes. Toss in the honey and butter.

Spoon the mixture over the chicken and toss well. Spread thighs, onion mixture, and any juices onto a baking sheet. Bake until chicken is no longer pink and onions are meltingly tender and caramelized, about 25 minutes.

Review

“…it will undoubtedly become one of America's most cherished cookbooks of all time.”
-Eater.com
 
“Like any good parody, this manages to make fun of both the flabby porn of "Fifty Shades" and the gushing language of "food porn…” -BonAppetit.com
 
“…this genius little tidbit that combines the sexual and the culinary…” -Glamour.com
 
“All signs indicate that Fifty Shades of Chicken, a new cookbook parodying erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey, is the real deal. We can't get over the hilarity of the description on the book's web site.” -Huffington Post

"The book that spawned “mommy porn” has now given a new meaning to playing with your food. . . You’ll never look at chickens the same way again." -Salon.com

"Besides clever writing with laugh-out-loud double entendres, Fifty Shades of Chicken offers 50 (of course) tempting recipes, among them Crunchy Chicken Parmesan Croquettes and Cranberry Baked Chicken With Apple Cider." -The Republic

Fifty Shades of Chicken: A Parody in a Cookbook opens with the genius dedication, "For chicken lovers everywhere," and just gets lewder from there. In addition to being a parody of "Fifty Shades of Grey"-style erotica written from the perspective of a young hen, "Fifty Shades of Chicken" is also a lavishly illustrated cookbook in its own right. With titles like "Plain Vanilla Chicken" and "Steamy White Meat," the recipes are what makes this book more than a one-note joke or gag gift (pun intended). If only more cookbooks were this profane.

After reading a couple of excerpts, I decided that I had to get this book - I was hoping it would be the perfect wedding present. I pre-ordered 4 copies, and they arrived yesterday. I am completely impressed with the quality of the book itself, and the pictures are somewhere in between traditional glossy cookbook pictures and tasteful food erotica (male hands, forearms, and abs are pictured - and those are high quality as well!). There are a couple of pages where there is a very minor blurring / shading issue with the text (only noticeable because the rest of the book is so impeccably done), but other than that, I am completely happy. I look forward to giving this at bridal showers, anniversary parties, or any other event I can think of!
** Important disclaimer - I have not tried any of the recipes. However, they look wonderful - and I laughed myself silly reading the cookbook last night! Hurray for FL Fowler!

What can be said about this book?!? I picked up a copy for my Mother, my sister, and my aunt as a Christmas present. I believe all of them have read 50 Shades of Grey. Regardless if they have or haven't it should be worth a laugh at Christmas time, right?!? When the book arrived I just had to open it. Being a guy, I have not read the original book (not enough pictures for me) but my wife had (thank God) so I knew what the premise was. Boy did it have me rolling on the ground laughing. It is VERY well written. I read it to my wife, out loud, in the best Patrick Stewart voice I could muster. While I might not get all the "inside" jokes that people who followed the original picked up on, I can recognize good writing when I see it. This was VERY well done! The book is beautiful. Nice print, nice pictures, nice feeling to the pages and the binding. Just all around well printed book. I am the cook of our household being a former Sous chef. I have not made anything out if this book yet since the only copies I have are going to other people. But, yes I will admit, I have ordered a copy for myself to read, alone, by the fire for some "inspiration". It truly is food porn in the greatest way! Can I get one in the 50 Shades of Pork?!? This are some bad things that I want to do to some ham hocks!!! (I have seen the 50 shades of bacon but I don't think it is done to the same quality or by the same people based on the amazon preview I can look at)

To the person that gave this book 3 stars because it is gross to think of your food sexually... Lighten up.. No one was implying that you sick a drumstick in your gigi. Although you might want to take the stick out of your... oh never mind!!

Fifty Shades of Chicken left me hungry and wanting for more. At first blush, I wanted to be that chicken.. to be touched and marinated. Cooked. I wanted Shifty Blades to want me every day.
This book is more than just a parody. It draws the reader in with breathy stories and succulent recipes. Absolutely finger licking delicious. And Julia, she is behind it all. Tsk.Tsk.

Need I say more?

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my sister-in-law and she died laughing. She loves to cook, she loves the original Fifty Shades and now she Loves her new cook book.

This is definitely a gift that keeps on giving!

This is a gift for my sister. I read about this book in the newspaper and it sounded cute. Although, once it arrived I could see it is even better. I look forward to her reaction when she opens the gift, and then begins to read the book/look at its pictures.
