More About This Recipe
Classic chicken recipes stay popular throughout the years for a reason – they’re delish!

You’ll recognize some of these recipes from Mom and Grandma, and others might be new to you. No matter what, they’re all easy to make and worth a try!

Click on recipe titles or photos to go to recipe pages.

1)  Chicken Parmigiana

Lightly breaded chicken, marinara sauce, mozzarella … this one is a total classic -- and a good indication of whether a restaurant is good or not. For a faster version, try my fav Quick Chicken Parmesan, which is ready in less than 30 minutes.

2)  Roast Chicken

Roasting a whole chicken is a must-know skill, especially since it can feed your family for days and makes a fantastic Sunday dinner. My personal current fav? Roasted Lime Herb Chicken. 

3)  Chicken Cordon Bleu

Breaded chicken, filled with ham and cheese … oh, it’s an amazing and delicious thing.

4)  Chicken Fingers (featured)

It’s no secret that kids love chicken fingers. Fortunately, making them at home is an easy thing. Try a classic recipe or something a little fabulously special like Pretzel-Coated Chicken Fingers.

5)  Buffalo Chicken Wings

Football season will be here before you know it, and having just the right snacks for tailgating and game-viewing isn't optional. Tongue-tingling Buffalo wings are always a hit – try 'em for the 4th of July!

6)  Arroz con Pollo

Arroz con Pollo is literally rice with chicken, a classic Mexican dish that makes for good comfort food. Really delicious.

7)  Chicken Teriyaki

Teriyaki sauce and chicken are a natural pair. Serve it with rice and crisp-cooked veggies.

8)  Chicken Pot Pie

Crusty topping, creamy gravy, meaty chicken and a rainbow of veggies? Score! This classic is pure comfort.

9)  Chicken Divan

Growing up, Chicken Divan -- a mix of broccoli, chicken, cheddar and creamy sauce -- was a fast, easy and absolutely delicious mixture of flavors and textures. Better yet? It doesn’t require a culinary degree to make.

10)  Chicken and Dumplings

Again with the comfort food! Chicken and dumplings are a classic home cooking dish -- and something that is totally doable for the home cook.

So there you have it. Vintage chicken classics that are just as perfect today as always. Give ‘em a try!
