Let's start with one of my recent discoveries - the slow cooker makes amazing Thai curry! I can't believe it took me this long to discover that.
I now make this Slow Cooker Thai Chicken Curry at least once every couple of weeks. I make some rice in my rice cooker and dinner is served!
Grilled barbecued chicken is a staple at our house. But what about when it's cold? Or rainy? Or you just don't feel like sitting outside?
These Oven Barbecued Chicken Drumsticks are the answer! They are sweet and sticky, have only 5 ingredients and are ready in about 45 minutes!
Have you discovered the magic that is marinating chicken in yogurt? It truly is magical.
The chicken comes out so juicy and flavorful. Add some interesting spices and you have the best Tandoori Marinated Chicken!
I have a confession. I don't fry chicken. I just can't bring myself to heat up all that oil and have it splatter all over my stove.
Luckily I don't have to. I can grab pretty good take out when I want real fried chicken, but I can also make this Oven Fried Buttermilk Chicken.
No, it's not quite fried chicken, but it is darn good! The chicken is juicy and tender on the inside and crispy on the outside!
This next recipe actually uses thighs and legs, but you can easily make it with all chicken legs.
It's also a sheet pan dinner, complete with your veggies, which makes it even more of a win.
The other plus? Kids love this Maple Roasted Chicken with Sweet Potatoes!
Last, but definitely not least, I have a favorite recipe from Nigella Lawson.
Her Tequila and Lime Chicken is always welcome at our house. We love finding new ways to use tequila!
