Helpful tips

I like to let the chicken sit on the kitchen counter for about one hour before I start seasoning it. If the chicken is too cold, the butter won’t stick to the skin, and it won’t cook evenly.

Make sure to pat dry the chicken with paper towels. Dry chicken = beautiful golden-brown skin.


Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
