    Updated: Wed, Jan 7, 2015

    I'll admit, I have a thing for condiments. My refrigerator is full of them. Mustards, chutneys, ketchups, mayonnaises and so on. And I love them all. But lately, I've been reaching for one condiment more than any other. It's what some people call Korea's answer to ketchup. But...

    Chicken in a pot. Not a romantic name, I'll admit. Luckily, the French have the more melodic "poule au pot" to fill that gap for this utterly delicious dish. However you say it, chicken in a pot is a traditional French country dish that dates to Henry IV in the 17th century. He...
