March 19th is National Poultry Day in the US. Chicken, turkey, and duck are some of the healthiest meats you can eat. Whether you love grilled turkey breast or something more exotic, there are a ton of recipes you can use to celebrate the day. The experts at Appliances Connection have compiled this list of great poultry recipes, including an oven roasted duck recipe and lemongrass chicken sandwiches.
Easy Lemongrass Chicken Banh Mi Sandwiches
Lemongrass is a staple of many forms of cuisine, and it coordinates particularly well with chicken's subtle flavor profile. These lemongrass chicken banh mi sandwiches combine the two flavors, and the recipe makes it easy to put them together. It takes only 20 total minutes of prep and cook time!
One of the best ways to simplify this recipe even further is to use a powerful gas cooktop like this 36-in. one from Viking's 5 Series. Its 18,000 BTU burner heats up almost instantly, and the ScratchSafe™ grate design makes moving dishes around on the cast iron grate a breeze.
Pepper Crusted Duck with Blackberry Red Wine Glaze
If you want to look beyond chicken and turkey, we recommend this recipe for pepper crusted duck. The blackberry red wine glaze adds even further depth of flavor to the duck, and the marinade helps to tenderize the meat for cooking.
Oven roasting food needs a high-powered oven, like this freestanding range from Miele's G7000 Series. Not only does it have a wireless precision probe to get your food to the exact temperature you need, but with Miele@home technology, you can control the range with your smartphone.
Southwestern Spice-Rubbed Turkey Breast
Fans of barbecue will adore this southwestern spice-rubbed turkey breast. Chili powder and paprika blend with brown sugar for a mouthwatering experience, and the recipe adds a fresh orange for a truly unique flavor.
This 69-in. freestanding gas grill from Weber's Genesis Series boasts 994 sq. in. of grilling surface. It's an amazingly extensible appliance, letting you sear, bake, steam, roast, and even stir-fry food with optional grillware. Meanwhile, its side burner lets you work on your side dish at the same time as the turkey!
Chicken Salad with Mixed Berries and Marsala Wine
If you're looking for a lighter dish, we recommend this recipe for chicken salad with mixed berries. It mixes Marsala wine with berries, carrots, onion, and pine nuts to bring a distinct personality to the salad mix. You can even customize it with your favorite fresh herbs.
This freestanding gas range from Bertazzoni is great for cooking the chicken for this salad. Its 4.7 cu. ft. capacity lets you feed a crowd if you want. To monitor its operating temperature, you can use the included probe or simply look at the Bertazzoni signature dial gauge, instead.
Turkey Noodle Soup
Are you looking for comfort food? This turkey noodle soup recipe is one you should definitely consider. It's simple and hearty, and the broth uses celery, onion, carrot, and garlic to fill it out as a dish.
Natural gas is great for high-volume utilities like making soup. That's why we like this 30-in. cooktop from Bosch's 800 Series. Its push-to-turn knobs and LED indicators make it easy to operate, and its sealed burners have a maximum output of 19,000 BTUs. Bosch has even ensured that the controls are easy for cooks to reach.
