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!
