Talking About Specialty Foods

Hello, my name is Roger. Welcome to my website about specialty foods. When I was a young kid, I ate anything and everything without question. I loved all food and did not think that would ever change. Unfortunately, I started experiencing painful allergic reactions after eating certain ingredients. After going to the doctor, I learned I would need to be much more careful about the foods I eat each day. I started looking into specialty foods made without those offending ingredients and it instantly helped. I want to use this site to help other people find and enjoy specialty foods. Thanks.

Two Simple And Delicious Chicken Thigh Recipes For Your Catering Menu

When you cater, you want recipes that taste delicious, but that are easy to quickly put together in one big pan. These chicken thigh recipes fit the bill. Each is made in a big baking pan and does not require you to dirty a lot of dishes. You can easily double or triple these recipes for a bigger crowd, too.

Lime-Garlic Chicken Thighs

Serve these lightly flavored chicken thighs with sides of rice and steamed veggies. The sauce is citrusy, but not overly bold, and appeals to a wide array of tastes.


  • 30 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

Lay the chicken thighs out in a single layer in a baking pan. Combine the other ingredients in a mixing bowl, and pour the mixture over the chicken. Bake at 375 degrees F for 35 - 40 minutes. Halfway through cooking, flip the chicken thighs over. They should appear slightly brown on top when done.

Cheesy Cajun Chicken Thighs

These spicy chicken thighs are topped with cheese at the end of cooking. The cheese balances out the spice, creating a well-rounded dish that is great for hearty appetites. Serve these boldly flavored chicken thighs with roasted potatoes, baked beans, and other hearty sides.


  • 30 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/4 cup paprika
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 cups shredded Provolone cheese

Combine all of the spices in a bowl, and stir to combine. Sprinkle the chicken thighs with this spice mixture, and use your hands to ensure that they are evenly and thoroughly coated. Place the seasoned chicken breasts in a baking pan, and drizzle them with olive oil.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes. Turn the chicken over, and bake for another 10 minutes. Then, sprinkle the shredded cheese over the chicken thighs. Return them to the oven, and bake for a final 10 minutes or until the cheese melts and begins to bubble.

Both of these recipes can be made with chicken breast cutlets rather than thighs if you prefer. Just reduce the baking time to 25 - 30 minutes in total so you do not overcook the delicate cutlets.
