"A legendary Florida riverfront restaurant cooks up one of the world's best chicken dishes"


Stuart Borton, chef of The Yellow Dog Café, boasts that it's the perfect combination of juices that makes his chicken a mouth-watering sensation. Borton enjoys the challenge of taking an existing dish and improving upon it. When a chef he hired showed him how to make an onion-crusted chicken dish, he adapted the recipe and made it his own. "That's what you do when your self-taught. You copy what someone else has done and learn," says the culinary expert, who co-owns The Yellow Dog Café located on the Indian River in Malabar, Fla. with his wife Nancy.

Recounting his introduction to the onion-crusted chicken, Borton notes, "The chef's sauce was made from ketchup, sugar and bacon." Borton created a new sauce using caramelized sugar and a combination of citrus juices.

Celebrities who have visited The Yellow Dog Café include America's Most Wanted's host John Walsh, singer Arlo Guthrie and General Hospital's Wally Kurth. When Florida Governor Jeb Bush celebrated his 49th birthday at the restaurant last February, Borton presented him with a cake in the shape of the American flag.
