2. Crispy Chicken Schnitzel

Maria del Mar Sacasa / Via

When a boneless skinless breast grows up and decides "Hey, I can be as delicious as every other part of the chicken," packs its things, dredges itself in breadcrumbs and fries itself till crispy. Recipe here.

3. Roasted Chicken Legs With Pomegranate

Suzy / Via

Chicken PSA: When the thigh and drumstick are together, the entire piece is called ~the leg~. These ~legs~ get rubbed down with pomegranate molasses and garlic then get bedazzled with some pomegranate seeds. Recipe here.


8. Fresh Chili-Chicken Stew

Lennart Weibull / Via

It's Fall, which is Latin for "stew." This one uses chicken thighs, but would def work with breasts as well — just make sure they are bone-in (you know, for flavor). Get your stew on here.

9. Baked Chinese Chicken Drumsticks

Michelle / Via

These little bird legs are roasted until almost cooked before getting doused with an insanely delicious mixture of soy sauce, lemon juice, vinegar and some other goodies. Get this supes cozy recipe here.

10. Crispy Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs

Marzia / Via

Rubbing chicken with mustard and coating in seasoned breadcrumbs is pretty much the grown-up version of chicken tenders and works well with most cuts. Find crispy chicken nirvana here.

11. Glazed Chicken Skewers with Sweet Potato

Katya / Via

If you've already retired your grill for the season, stick these skewers on a baking sheet lined with foil and place them under the broiler until browned and cooked and tender and delicious. Recipe here.


12. Chicken Breast with Acorn Squash and Spinach

Marcus Nilsson / Via

When a chicken breast is pounded thinly between two pieces of plastic wrap, it becomes a *paillard*. The advantage to doing this, aside from saying *paillard* over and over, is that it cooks SUPER fast, making it perfect for weeknight dinners. Recipe for this *paillard* here.

13. One-Skillet Chicken Thighs with Lemon and Potato

Katerina Petrovska / Via

This one-skillet dinner goes out to all my boneless skinless chicken thigh lovers. The recipe says the Parmesan at the end is "optional" lol. Recipe here.


19. Roasted Chicken Legs with Parmesan and White Wine Sauce

Emily / Via

Roasting this chicken is so easy, you'll be able to focus all your attention on the important things in life. Like drinking the rest of that wine. Find the recipe here.

21. Chicken Thighs with Apples and Root Vegetables

Elizabeth / Via

Chicken thighs get to party all up in this dish with apples, all sorts of root vegetables, mushrooms and bacon. Who says you can't have it all? Recipe here.
