Tastes Like #CHICKEN: #FNIchat 01.14.13
Smack dab in the middle of your oh-so resolute January Monday, #FNIchat’s going lean and mean with CHICKEN and all the other birds that “taste just like it”. Join us for a Twitter all about poultry — where to buy, how to cook, ways to serve, and every single reason to gobble it up. We’ll save you a leg, a thigh, a breast…and definitely as seat at the table. Bring your best recipes, most Pinteresting pictures, and your very healthy appetite too.
NEW! We’d love to start sharing all recipes exchanged during Foodies’ Night In via Pinterest by inviting you to pin on the #FNIchat boards. Please shoot us a quick email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to give us your email address or Pinterest name, or leave in a comment below.

How Foodies’ Night In Works:.
Late Monday afternoons (4-6pm eastern to be exact) we meet through Twitter. Using the hashtag #FNIchat we greet each other at the virtual door, and get cozy to talk about whatever food-related topic we are featuring that day. Typically the topic will be determined by the weekly sponsor of #FNIchat. We, at Cooking with Caitlin, compile at least ten questions that serve as the framework of the conversation over the two hours of #FNIchat. Then, the hosts throw out each question at pre-determined times throughout #FNIchat. We hope that YOU will join in the fun-filled foodie conversation and share your thoughts, recipes, tips, ask questions…and most certainly make new friends! Can’t wait to *see* you there.
And HERE are the questions that framed the exchange. Dig in yourself and let us know what you think:
