Q/ What is your secret to the perfect holiday turkey? A/ Here’s my secret for perfect turkey (brace yourself): I don’t cook the bird whole! I ask the butcher to cut it into eight pieces: two legs, two wings, two thighs and two breast halves. (If you buy a whole frozen turkey, you can do this yourself after it’s thawed. It isn’t difficult; I’m just lazy.) There’s really no reason to cook it whole. Cooking it in parts is far more convenient and solves all your turkey problems. Your oven isn’t hijacked for hours, and you can cook each part just as much as it needs – no more dried-out white meat. I roast the wings and breast halves, braise the legs and thighs, and use some of the braising liquid to…

Biryani-Style Chicken & Cauliflower Rice Bake F GF SERVES 6. HANDS-ON TIME: 25 MINUTES. TOTAL TIME: 55 MINUTES. Cauliflower makes a tasty rice substitute, and it’s easy on your carb intake. Here, the chicken gets a big pop of flavor from prepared biryani seasoning paste; look for jars of this distinctive spice blend near the curry pastes. Biryani paste is quite unique, so there is no equal substitute; however, you could use tandoori or korma paste – the flavor profile will be different, but it will be just as tasty. 1½ lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces3 tbsp biryani seasoning paste, divided4 tsp coconut oil, divided1 small yellow onion, chopped1 tbsp curry powder1 tbsp peeled and minced ginger1 clove garlic, minced6 cups riced cauliflower (see tip)1 cup full-fat coconut milk1 tbsp arrowroot powder½…
