It’s a win for residents of Louisville, KY that there’s a hot chicken war going on: joints featuring this beloved Nashville import seem to appear faster than beer at a Cardinals basketball game. But if you don’t happen to be lucky enough to live in Louisville, you can get your Hot Chicken Sandwich fix in your very own kitchen. And just so there won’t be any misunderstanding with the folks in Nashville, we made this version 100% Kentucky, thanks to a knock-your-socks off, only-in-Kentucky bourbon barbecue sauce.

Guanciale is a rich and flavorful cured meat which lends deep flavor to this special pasta dish, while the walnut crumbs add appealing texture.

Crisp radish slaw is the perfect crunchy counterpart to grilled tuna steaks. If you can’t find yuzu for the marinade (it is generally available at Asian foods stores and some grocery stores), substitute 2 tablespoons lime juice, 1 tablespoon orange juice, and 1 tablespoon seasoned rice vinegar.

Skillet-roasting spatchcocked chicken does nearly magical things to an ordinary chicken: the result is golden crisp skin and juicy tender meat. In fact, because of the way the bird sits in the pan, the breast cooks to an ideal 160° and the thigh to 170°-175°F in the same amount of time.
