'50 Shades of Grey' inspires sexy new cookbook (RECIPE)

"There's a bit of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in every dish," writes the author of the new 50 Shades of Grey-inspired cookbook, 50 Shades of Chicken.

That's right, the popular BDSM trilogy, which has inspired everything from a "bedroom experience" to baby onesies to a YouTube musical and even an upcoming movie (possibly with William Levy?), is now immortalized in the form of an anonymously-written but delicious-sounding cookbook by a chef who goes by the name of F.L. Fowler and promises "50 chicken recipes bound to be delicious." Bound, hehe, get it?

I'm a pretty big fan of chicken and, well, anything that will spice up one's love life--so why NOT combine these two? I can't believe nobody ever thought of this before! It does seem kind of genius and, seriously, who wouldn't want that many sexy chicken recipes? Plus, the author's inspiration is pretty brilliant:  

Like so many others, 'Fifty Shades of Grey' resonated for me. It evoked something I'd never been able to express. Then one day as I was tying up the ankles of a chicken for roasting, I realized why some of the scenes in the book were so strikingly familiar. It turns out I've been practicing BDSM for years--but with poultry.

Dripping Thighs (roasted chicken thighs with sweet and sour onions)

Ingredients:
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, patted dry with paper towels
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 teaspoon plus pinch coarse kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 sweet onion, thinly sliced
1 cup white wine
1 bay leaf
1 cinnamon stick
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon honey

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. In a large bowl, toss the chicken, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper together.

2. In a small saucepan, simmer together onion, wine, bay leaf, cinnamon stick, and a pinch of salt until most of the liquid has evaporated, 15 to 20 minutes. Toss in the honey and butter.

3. Spoon the mixture over the chicken and toss well. Spread thighs, onion mixture, and any juices onto a baking sheet. Bake until chicken is no longer pink and onions are meltingly tender and caramelized, about 25 minutes.
