Recipe: Chicken and Broccoli Penne Pasta
I teach pasta-from-scratch cooking classes a few times a week, so I have plenty of recipes for luxurious cream sauces and all-day ragùs in my arsenal. But most nights, I don’t actually feel like rolling and cutting my own pasta or making a labor-intensive, cream-laden sauce. For dinners at home, I often look to my freezer and pantry for a quick fix. This recipe uses up ingredients I always try to have on hand because, together or separately, they seem to have infinite uses.

Recipe: Chicken and Wild Rice Bake
I first started making this dish for my parents and siblings when I was in high school. As the eldest girl, I claimed free reign over the kitchen. Over the years I transitioned the recipe from using Cornish hens and boxed rice mix to easier-to-wield chicken pieces and a homemade blend of rice and seasonings. I’ve only used long-grain rice in this dish, but my new Costco find of short-grain brown rice has me eager to make this again soon.

Recipe: Chicken and Potatoes Sheet-Pan Supper
Sheet-pan suppers are one of my favorite no-fuss ways to get dinner on the table. Most of the cooking time is unattended, so you’re free to leave your kitchen post while your dinner is doing its thing in the oven. Pour yourself a glass of wine, kick back, and relax as the oven does all the work — rendering your chicken skin crispy and turning your potatoes golden-brown. This meal is not only super simple to put together, but it’s also very easy to customize to your liking.

Recipe: Chicken Rice Bowls with Honey-Mustard Sauce
When you’re looking to liven up leftover cooked chicken, a sweet and tangy honey-mustard sauce goes a long way! Add a freshly steamed pot of rice and some sautéed vegetables, and you’ve got a quick weeknight meal that’s full of bright flavors and textures. Grain bowls are one of my favorite meals. They’re easy to serve and enjoy at the dinner table, on the couch for a Netflix marathon night, or as a packed lunch to take to work.

Recipe: Roast Chicken with Fennel, Carrots, and Gremolata
Tired of mashed potatoes and gravy with your roast chicken? Here’s a classic dinner with a flavorful punch of fresh herbs — plus sweet roasted fennel and carrots, which absorb savory juices from the chicken by sharing the same pan. Believe it or not, roasting a whole chicken isn’t a chore — the time it takes can be trimmed significantly by butterflying and searing the bird first. You won’t have to worry about getting the skin crisp and golden in the oven alone.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Dubliner Cheese and Tomato Stuffed Chicken Breasts
I usually make this with reduced-fat Dubliner cheese, which melts beautifully and gives us the same gooey, rich cheesiness with fewer calories and less saturated fat. You can use chicken thighs (cooked to 170°F) instead of chicken breasts, which reheat better because they are not quite as lean. Either way, the chicken is also very good served cold the next day.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Fiona’s Green Chicken
My chef sister, Fiona, is my go-to source for hands-on cooking advice and one of my biggest culinary heroes and influences. But even more important? Fiona came up with an umami-packed, Thai-inspired chicken recipe that immediately became a family favorite. Her green marinade is a breeze to throw together: Simply blend together a sweet onion, handfuls of herbs, fish sauce, apple juice, lime zest, and pepper.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Spicy Chicken Skewers with Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce
Don’t let the name Pollo alla Diavola, aka Devil’s Chicken, scare you away from this recipe. Sure, there’s plenty of red pepper flakes happening with these skewers, but a zesty sun-dried tomato sauce offers a sweet reprieve. I guarantee you and your friends won’t be able to get enough. Skewering meat and cooking it over open flames has been done for centuries, but it wasn’t until recently that I truly jumped on the bandwagon.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Weeknight Roasted Chicken with Lemon and Sage
There are few foods I enjoy more than a classic roasted chicken — except for, possibly, potatoes cooked until crispy in the fat from that roasting chicken. With this classic one-skillet dish, the bird and the spuds cook in sync and turn richly golden in the extra-hot oven — the chicken fat trickling down to amp up the already-rich flavor of Yukon Golds. This, my friends, is true kitchen synergy.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Crispy Chicken Thighs with Garlicky Spinach
When we roast a chicken at my house, we typically eat the breasts on the first night and save the thighs and the drumsticks for the next. This sequence is motivated partly by a “save the best for last” approach and partly by a particular fondness for our reheat method, which gives that once-crispy chicken skin a second lease on life.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Cheesy BBQ Chicken Calzone
For those of you who don’t know me well, I am a full-fledged pizza junkie. I’m no snob, either — I don’t care whether it’s Pizzeria Mozza in Los Angeles or Papa John’s down the street. I’ll eat a slice from a truck stop, no problem, and I keep a secret stash of pepperoni bagel bites in my freezer. It’s okay, I’ve got no shame! But my favorite pies and calzones are always the ones straight from my own oven.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Chicken Chile Enchiladas
Sometimes I feel a little guilty. Because I work from home, I can have nachos for dinner every night if I want, while I send my husband off to work with something a little more sensible and microwaveable. (Note: This doesn’t happen.) We save our nacho-fests for nights when we’re together (preferably also in the company of some good beers and a good baseball game); for regular weeknight meals, Dan gets his Tex-Mex fix with these chicken enchiladas.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: 30-Minute Sheet Pan Potatoes and Chicken Sausage
I love crispy potatoes in any form, especially the ones with creamy, fluffy interiors. They’re so easy to roast in the oven. Since you’re already breaking out a baking sheet, use the extra real estate on the pan to roast some sausages to make a meal out of it. I always have a few potatoes in the root vegetable basket, and some pre-cooked sausage in the freezer, so this is a great pantry dinner in our household.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Lemon-Rosemary Roast Chicken with Winter Green Stems
When Hali first mentioned that she saves tough winter greens stems over the course of a week for roasting, I was a bit skeptical. That is, until I tried it myself and realized it was a brilliant idea — and a delicious one, too When it’s the winter season and the variety of fresh vegetables dwindles drastically, winter greens become a lifesaver. But what do you do with all those tough stems that are leftover from the recipes that only call for leaves?

The Secret to Chick-fil-A’s Super-Juicy Chicken Is in Your Pantry
There’s a lot to love about chicken breast. The low fat content keeps it lean, nourishing, and nutritious. It’s easy to cook, and hugely versatile. But because this meat is so lean, on its own, it lacks in the flavor department. All it needs is a boost from the outside. One of the easiest way to pile on the flavor is with a single ingredient that’s sitting in your pantry or fridge. I hope you’re ready for juicy, flavorful chicken.

The Prettiest Marshmallows We’ve Ever Laid Eyes On
Aren’t these the most beautiful marshmallows you’ve ever seen? I love that pale pink hue they’ve got going on — all thanks to fresh blood orange juice. Grab your candy thermometer and learn how to make your own at home! Making marshmallows at home really isn’t that difficult. With just a handful of ingredients and a little patience (they have to cool for four hours), you can whip up a batch whenever the mood strikes.

Recipe: Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo
Do you ever feel a little naughty eating pasta Alfredo? Like you’re doing something you shouldn’t, eating carbohydrates slathered in rich, creamy sauce? I do, sometimes. I also feel like having something green would completely cancel out any harm the cream may do to my arteries. And adding in a protein just makes it a perfectly balanced meal, right? Obviously, chicken and broccoli Alfredo is the perfect meal.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Chicken Empanadas
Chicken’s versatility has earned it a place on the table at least once a week. And while a golden roast chicken will always be a classic favorite, and chicken breast maintain their claim to ease, heartier cuts like chicken thighs and blank-canvas options like ground chicken allow us to do even more with the bird. Doing more now includes making these hearty chicken empanadas.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Mango Chicken Breakfast Sausage
Last year I spent a glorious week in Hawaii with my family, complete with a rather deluxe breakfast buffet. My husband was totally in heaven, but I typically find your average breakfast buffet a bit of a minefield. Given our allergies, I have to gently guide my daughters and myself past the sticky buns (gah!) and the bagel bar (sigh … ) as well as the line for the fluffy custom-made omelets.

Meet Your New Favorite Lunch: Buffalo Chicken Summer Rolls
As soon as the weather warms up, I add summer rolls back into my lunch rotation. They’re fast, fresh, and super versatile. I mean, really, you can fill them with whatever your heart desires — even buffalo chicken. This recipe first calls for you to cook the chicken, but you can easily sub in leftover chicken or a store-bought rotisserie chicken instead.

How To Cook a Whole Chicken in the Slow Cooker
The slow cooker strikes again! With minimal work and just one ingredient (psst … it’s chicken) this recipe delivers the most delicious payoff imaginable — meat so tender and juicy it practically falls right off the bone. And it’s all thanks to the small, closed environment of the slow cooker. The real beauty of this recipe (yes, maybe even better than hands-off cooking!) is the ingredient list, as it contains a single item: one whole chicken.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Upside-Down Chicken Curry Bowl
I adore Indian food, and while my tastes range wide in that nation’s incredibly diverse cuisine, I have to admit that the rich, Westernized chicken tikka masala was my gateway love and still a guilty pleasure. But what does it look like when you flip the bowl and leave the curry until last? Can chicken curry be a lighter, fresher meal?
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas
Let’s talk about the fajita effect. It’s the restaurant moment when a server swaggers by with a sizzling platter of fajitas and all heads turn to the sound and aroma of seasoned meat, peppers, and onions parading past the table. If you were smart enough to order that platter, you gloat as you pile warm tortillas with all the toppings and meat fresh from the skillet.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Grilled BBQ Chicken Wings
BBQ chicken wings are ubiquitous at summertime parties, and for good reason — they can be eaten with one hand (cold drink in the other) and are satisfying to devour. Typically, wings are fried or baked and tossed in sauce just before serving. With these wings, we flip the procedure and cook the wings long and slow in their sauce, and then crisp them on the grill just before serving. The results are tender, juicy wings with a caramelized, crispy skin that everyone will love.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Chicken Caesar Pizza
There’s a time to eat salad with your pizza, and then there’s a time when salad is best eaten on your pizza. Right now it’s time for the latter, when the flavors of Caesar salad and pizza team up and join forces for a delicious take on dinner. This is the kind of pizza that can be as simple or involved as you want to make it.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Grilled Chicken Thighs with Chimichurri
Grilled chicken is likely on rotation in your summer grilling routine. It’s quick, easy, and crowd-pleasing. But it can definitely get boring after a while if you’re tossing the meat in the same ol’ marinade week after week. Here’s how to spice it up. Chimichurri, a sauce from Argentina, is made up of a mix of herbs like parsley, cilantro, and mint that are blended with garlic, olive oil, and vinegar.

Recipe: Chicken Parm and Pasta Skillet
Sometimes I question why I ever even put away my cast iron skillet in the first place. Truly, its home is on the stovetop because rarely do I make a meal that doesn’t take advantage of its incomparable versatility. This skillet rendition of chicken parm and pasta for two is no exception. Whether it’s crisping up the breaded chicken or baking everything in the oven, the method behind this 30-minute meal is just as streamlined as the ingredient list.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Chili and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast
Grab that last bit of leftover chili or a can from the pantry, and the nub of cheddar hanging out in the fridge, because they are the duo that’s going to make tonight’s mild-mannered chicken breast something to talk about. Chili and cheese stuffed chicken breast may never win any beauty awards, but that’s just fine because — as this quick dinner proves — it’s what’s on the inside that counts.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Broccolini, Chicken Sausage, and Orzo Skillet
All too often you don’t want to be bothered with assembling separate elements of a meal. For those times, there are all-in-one dinners like this. Tender Broccolini, spicy chicken sausage, and orzo pasta come together in one skillet to make a creamy, satisfying dinner that only requires a bowl and a fork. Tiny orzo really can’t be beat. It cooks up ridiculously fast, and even picky eaters tend to love its tender, rice-like bite.

This Baked Popcorn Chicken Is the Perfect After-School Snack
It’s back-to-school time, and that means making sure you have plenty of after-school snack ideas ready for hungry kiddos. Frozen chicken nuggets were a staple of my childhood, but these baked popcorn chicken bites — breaded in crushed potato chips! — would’ve made 8-year-old me much happier. The interesting thing about this recipe is that it eschews the typical flour and/or breadcrumb coating for crushed potato chips, which means these chicken nuggets are gluten-free.

How To Make a Chicken and Roasted Vegetable Sheet Pan Meal
Sheet pan dinners are the ultimate one-pan meal. They can easily be adapted to please picky eaters, involve mostly hands-off cooking, and turn out reliably satisfying results. With a trusty sheet pan, five or six pantry staples, and 30 minutes of cooking, you can have a hearty dinner on the table any night of the week. Sheet pans, baking sheets, and jelly roll pans are often confused with each other.

How To Make Chicken Tikka Masala in the Electric Pressure Cooker
There’s no need to order chicken tikka masala takeout when you can make it lightning-fast in the pressure cooker. Boneless, skinless chicken thighs bring lots of flavor and tenderness to this recipe. Before cutting the thighs into pieces, remove any excess fat. You want the chicken pieces to be bite-sized, so aim for a cut about 1 1/2 inches. Traditional chicken tikka masala recipes start with marinating the chicken in a yogurt sauce.

How To Remove Bones from Chicken Thighs
There are few kitchen tasks less glamorous than deboning chicken. Fortunately, with the help of a pair of handy kitchen shears, this task can be done in half the time, which means dinner gets done even faster. Here’s the why and how for deboning chicken thighs with kitchen shears. Chicken thighs are hands-down a favorite chicken staple. Thighs are cheaper and more flavorful than chicken breasts, due to their slightly higher fat content and darker meat.

How To Make Freezer Dinner Packets
What’s for dinner tonight? Let’s ask the freezer. Here’s a little gift you can prep for yourself to have an almost effortless dinner ready to go at any time: frozen foil-packet meal kits. Unlike more traditional frozen dinner kits, which are intended to feed four or more, packets are single-serve and can feed just one person at a time. Frozen foil packets are also wonderful for teens who might need to feed themselves, as they are mostly hands-off and only require an oven.

How to Make and Freeze Kabobs for the Grill
My kids just love to eat things off sticks. Marshmallows, hot dogs — anything is made better when cooked over fire on a stick. Maybe the ultimate dinner on a stick is the classic meat kabob. Juicy, charred, and delicious, meat on a stick is such an easy and appealing way to make dinner on the grill.

Recipe: Freezer-to-Pressure-Cooker Chicken Curry
The pressure cooker makes long-cooked dishes like curries possible on a weeknight. If you also want to keep the slicing and dicing to a minimum, partner with your freezer so chicken curry can be on your table in just about 30 minutes whenever that craving hits.

How To Make a Rich and Flavorful Chicken Broth for Homemade Ramen
Sometimes, the craving for ramen comes with the desire to make it at home — and not just from rectangular packages or Styrofoam cups. We’re talking about a homemade ramen that’s rich and satisfying and on par with what you have at restaurants and ramen shops. The key to making good ramen at home is making good broth, and making good broth at home doesn’t require 12 hours of cooking, nor a plethora of bones.

A rotisserie chicken just may be the best grocery store shortcut on the planet. Pick one up and you’re looking at multiple stress-free dinners and lunches.

Here are five tips to utilize rotisserie chicken in your weeknight soup routine.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Cilantro-Lime Chicken Quesadillas
I used to use quesadillas as a vessel for leftover chicken — usually the leftover bits of a whole roasted bird from earlier in the week. This recipe, though, was the impetus for cooking chicken for the sole purpose of making quesadillas, and now I’m dedicated to the concept. The cilantro-lime chicken thighs are excellent in their own right, but they’re even better teamed up with buttery, flaky tortillas and melty Monterey Jack cheese.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Creamy Slow-Cooker Peanut Chicken and Broccoli
The slow cooker and stir-fry might seem to live in different worlds — one slow, the other flash-fast — but sometimes you want the lively flavors of stir-fry without the last-minute prep and cooking. With a little planning, you can easily create a dish that replicates the goodness of a stir-fry with the help of the slow cooker. Here, a rich, creamy peanut sauce, enlivened with scallions, ginger, garlic, and red curry paste, envelops tender, slow-cooked chunks of chicken and broccoli.

Sweet Chinese hoisin sauce makes a great pairing with chicken.

Cook everything together in a slow cooker, and you end up with tender chicken infused with that irresistible flavor.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Tuscan Chicken and Mushroom Skillet

Fresh rosemary and garlic sing over them all for an Italian-inspired dinner that quickly comes together on even the busiest of evenings.

Recipe: Jacques Pépin’s Garlic Chicken Breasts
I’ve got a thing for nuggets of crispy chicken. Not necessarily chicken nuggets — although good ones can fall in this category — but chicken that’s been cut into chunks, is cooked until crispy, and takes well to eating in one or two bites. What can I say? I’m just looking for joy in the form of a salty, meaty, crunchy revelation.

Recipe: Slow Cooker Chicken Piccata
The only thing better than a slow cooker chicken dinner is one that’s cooked on a bed of tender red potatoes, then tossed with a buttery lemon sauce that’s punched up with briny capers. This piccata will win your heart not only for its bold layers of flavor, but also for how simple it is to pull together. There are some set-it-and-forget-it slow cooker meals where we can go to sleep or dash out the door to work, and let it simmer away for upwards of eight to 10 hours.

One of the easiest, tastiest sheet pan chicken dinners picks up big flavor from a couple of basics in your spice cabinet and takes your tastebuds on a trip to Greece.

Recipe: Slow Cooker Orange Chicken
Despite its unnaturally bright-orange hue, orange chicken is a takeout dinner favorite. But you won’t find any takeout with the fresh citrusy flavor you can produce at home using finely grated orange zest and fresh-squeezed juice. Honey reveals the floral flavor of the orange and provides a sticky texture to the finished sauce, and a bit of fresh garlic and red pepper flakes add a hint of heat.

How To Cook a Whole Chicken Dinner in the Dutch Oven
We can all agree on the perfection of a roast chicken dinner. Juicy, tender chicken, a crackle of golden chicken skin, all on top of a bed of supple, caramelized vegetables.

The Safest, Healthiest Type of Cutting Board for Chicken, According to a Microbiologist
I hate to tell you this, but your cutting board is right up there with your sponge and sink in terms of the dirtiest places in your kitchen. “There’s more fecal bacteria on a cutting board than on a toilet,” says Dr. Chuck Gerba, a professor of microbiology at University of Arizona. That’s because cutting boards come into contact with all sorts of food in various stages, from raw to cooked and unwashed to clean.

We Compared the Prices for Whole Chickens and Individual Pieces — Here’s What We Found
If you’re a frequent purchaser of chicken, then you already know firsthand that the price of this lean meat can really run the gamut, from budget-friendly to more spendy. Pound for pound, whole chicken is often touted as being the most economical option. Is that really the case, though? We compared the national average prices of whole chickens and packages of individual parts to find out. Presumably, whole chickens give us a lot for our money and the most bang for our buck.
