Grilled Cilantro Chicken with Pickled Tomato and Avocado SalsaLook no further for this season's go-to grilled chicken dish featuring a simple marinade and an addictive Indian-style pickled salsa on top.
White Bean and Chicken Chili
One of those “killer” recipes that is sure to wow any crowd (especially when they find out how simple it is), this nine-ingredient slow cooker chili relies largely on pantry staples such as canned white beans, chicken broth, and canned roasted green chilies. To build rich flavor, the chicken is first seared in a skillet and the aromatic onions and fresh garlic are lightly sauteed in the same pan with the remaining flavorful juices and browned bits from the chicken before being transferred to the slow cooker. To add extra flair to your chili, set this vibrant stew out with individual bowls of sour cream, ripe avocado, sliced radishes, diced tomatoes, crumbled cotija (a salty Mexican cow's milk cheese), and fresh limes for topping.
Mushroom-Herb ChickenFlavorful herbs and spices, sherry, shallots, and mushrooms give these plain chicken breasts rich flavor. Refrigerated mashed potatoes and broccoli complete the meal. If you don't care to use the wine, you can use cooking sherry and omit the salt. Or, you can use 1/3 cup of chicken broth.
Buttermilk Chicken TendersMarinate chicken tenders in a mixture of buttermilk and hot sauce, coat in breadcrumbs, then brown in a skillet for an easy weeknight dinner.
Apricot-Lemon ChickenStart with an apricot fruit spread to concoct a sauce that transforms simply prepared chicken breasts into this elegant dish.
