Moravian Chicken Pie

This Moravian-inspired chicken pie recipe makes a delicious and hearty meal, and preparing it is a cinch — the hardest part is waiting for it to cook.


Fried Chicken with Piedmont Dip Sauce

There’s nothing more Southern than fried chicken — except maybe when it’s drenched in Piedmont barbecue sauce. Every layer of the recipe is seasoned with a kick, so it pairs perfectly with cole slaw.
