Chicken thigh recipes are severely underused in the kitchen. And why should they be? They have so much more flavor than any other part of the chicken! For a perfect light 'n' easy meal, we suggest trying our our healthy chicken salad recipe for Taco Chicken Salad (page 3). The perfect meal for a warm summer's day, this chicken dish is sure to add a little spice to your usual dinner fare. For those of you looking for a classic dinner recipe that even Grandma would approve, you can't miss out on our old-fashioned recipe for Chicken and Rice (page 4). This easy casserole dish will warm you down to your toes, giving you a home-cooked meal your kids are surely going to love. These easy chicken recipes are sure to have everyone at the dinner table fighting for seconds!
For a kid-friendly chicken meal, you can't go wrong with an easy chicken drumstick recipe. Drumsticks are an All-American classic in the "finger foods" category, perfect for sitting around and watching the game or enjoying a picnic dinner on the porch with your family. There isn't a kid around that wouldn't love taking a bite of our sweet 'n' spicy Honey Garlic Drumsticks (page 8). Pair it with a cool side of ranch dressing or blue cheese and an ice-cold glass of lemonade for the perfect summer meal. If you've always wanted to know how to cook fried chicken, you're in luck! We've even made it a healthier so you won't have to feel guilty when you chow down during your favorite TV show. Our All-American Oven-"Fried" Drumsticks (page 9) uses an oven instead of a deep-fryer to get the taste of country fried chicken without all of those unnecessary calories. It's a win-win!

We know how hard you work to put food on the table for your family. It's a treat anytime you all get to sit together at the dinner table, from soccer practice to late hours at the office and everything in between.

If there's one kind of chicken recipe that will never go out of style, it's got to be one of these easy chicken breast recipes. There's nothing that quite beats the appeal of Italian chicken recipes, especially when they're as tasty as our recipe for Chicken Piccata (page 12). Using a touch of white wine and parsley, this chicken dish has a touch of elegance, giving a restaurant-worthy spin to any meal. On the other side of the coin, we have a tropical favorite that's sure to get company talking with our recipe for "Drunken" Chicken (page 13). Cooked with a touch of lime, you'll only need to dust off your ukelele and close your eyes to imagine yourself in a tropical paradise. Plus, who could forget the universal appeal of a classic Chicken Alfredo (page 14) recipe? Everyone needs a go-to recipe that will work any time of year, and this chicken alfredo recipe certainly fits the bill!
Sometimes you just need a recipe that's going to leave you with plenty of leftovers for the rest of the week.

There's no grilling favorite that quite measures up to the legendary Beer Can Chicken (page 17). The perfect recipe for your next tailgating cookout, you can finally learn the secret recipe everyone's been talking about! For those of you who are looking for something with a bit of a kick, you're going to love our recipe for Hot 'n' Spicy Orange Chicken (page 19).
