Want a chicken dinner? We have a winner! This year we doubled down on the omnipresent chicken, that humble and do-it-all bird. Chicken dinners will never go out of style, but we dressed them up a little: we had fun testing the “secret” KFC recipe and trying our hand at chicken empanadas.

But we also kept it simple; we know that nearly every cook can use one more winner of a chicken dinner for busy weeknights, and from slow-cooker chicken tacos to one-pan chicken burrito bowls to an inspiring series on the great sheet pan supper, we think we have something here to make you crow.
