This Pork Chorizo recipe is excellent and on point. It’s got everything you want in a great Chorizo and it’s fun and easy to make. In this post and video tutorial, I show you how to make sausage stuffed in hog casings and I give you the option of making sausage links that you can grill or make a real pasty Chorizo that you can combine with Eggs for breakfast, homemade Chili or some amazing burritos like this Chimichanga recipe.
Making Pork Chorizo From Scratch
You’re going to need a good Pork Roast and either Pork Belly Fat or Fat Back. I use 3 parts, a 2 to 1 ratio; 2 parts Pork to 1 part fat. I cut everything down into portions that will fit through my meat grinder and then mix in all of my other ingredients. From there it’s like clock work, stuffing the hog casings and twisting links. Now there are some alternatives to this recipe that I’d like to mention. If you don’t want to make sausage links you can twist the sausage up in saran wrap and I show you how to do that in my Italian Sausage video found HERE.
If you want a pasty Pork Chorizo, you’re going to want to make my homemade Enchilada Sauce and add it to this recipe. There’s nothing else like it. My recipe is thick and pure, so you’ll want to check it out before you decide to add your own or resort to a canned product.
If you’re interested in more recipes that use a kitchen aide to stuff hog casings, you should take a look at my Cajun Boudin recipe.
This Garlic Parmesan Chicken recipe is very simple and delicious. It can be made with white or dark meat, breaded or bare, pan fried or baked. It’s entirely up to you. This recipe is even good over wings and chicken legs if you’re just looking for a side dish. The point is, Garlic Parmesan Chicken is so versatile it can practically be done anyway you want to cook it. I even use these exact same ingredients over Brussels Sprouts, it’s that good.
The way I like Garlic Parmesan Chicken
My personal favorite way to cook this recipe is with chicken thigh meat cut into small pieces. In fact, that’s how I like my Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo. Cooking the chicken this way just adds so much more depth to the pasta and sauce. So I highly recommend you add your Garlic Parmesan Chicken to your favorite noodles. You can check out my Alfredo recipe HERE if you’d like. Of course when I say “my” I mean The Olive Gardens! 😉
2 Boneless Chicken Breasts
2 tbsp Olive Oil
6 Garlic Cloves, chopped
1/4 cup Fresh Parsley, chopped
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
2 tbsp Salted Butter (optional)
Kosher Salt and Pepper to taste
The instructions in my Garlic Parmesan Chicken video recipe tutorial is very easy to follow. However, I don’t use any butter in the cooking, though it’s clearly in the ingredients as an option. I do this for health reasons. For me the Olive Oil is enough but the added butter does make this dish taste even better. So consider adding it if it’s something you would normally do to make your Garlic Parmesan Chicken perfect.
Here’s a Roast Duck recipe that I would highly recommend. It’s very easy to prepare and the taste is out of this world. I stuff the duck with a wonderful array of aromatic flavors that completely permeates the breast from the inside out when it marinates and bakes and I Salt the outside with Kosher and Smoked Paprika, leaving you with an irresistible taste and an unforgettable experience.
