Quick Chicken Classics
Biscuit-Topped Chicken Potpie
When you don't have time to make an old-fashioned potpie, turn to this easy version featuring a biscuit mix topping, refrigerated potatoes, frozen veggies, and rotisserie chicken.
Weeknight Coq au Vin
This classic French dish is typically made with a whole chicken that's cut into quarters and simmered in a red wine-vegetable mixture for well over an hour. This one starts with chicken pieces that are already cut up, and it simmers for about 25 minutes.
Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu
Save time by topping the breaded chicken with the ham and Swiss cheese instead of rolling them up inside the chicken pieces.
Quick Chicken and Dumplings
Flour tortilla strips are the surprise ingredient in this shortcut version of chicken and dumplings and take the place of biscuit-dough dumplings. Rotisserie chicken, pre-chopped onion, and frozen vegetables all help simplify this traditional dish.
Simple Roast Chicken
You can't go wrong with this simple and classic chicken recipe. There are only 4 ingredients and the prep time is less than 5 minutes. While it's in the oven roasting, you can read a magazine and enjoy a glass of wine.
Quick Barbecue Chicken
Instead of marinating or basting, simply rub the chicken breasts with a spice mixture of chili powder, cumin, ginger, cinnamon, and black pepper and put them on the grill.
Chicken Scaloppine With Spinach and Linguine
If you can't find chicken cutlets, use 4-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breast halves and pound them to a 1/4-inch thickness. The thin pieces of chicken will cook in about 4 to 6 minutes. Because this chicken is topped with both spinach and pasta, you've got your whole meal ready in 45 minutes.
Crunchy Pan-Fried Chicken
Enjoy crispy fried chicken in only 20 minutes by dredging boned, skinned chicken breasts in a self-rising flour-breadcrumb mixture and pan-frying in a large skillet. Add refrigerated mashed potatoes and a tossed green salad, and you've got dinner on the table.
Speedy Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas
Save time by warming flour tortillas in the microwave before filling them with the chicken mixture. Then when you put them in the casserole dish and top with sauce and cheese, you only have to broil for about 4 minutes.
Curried Chicken Salad
The key to shortcut chicken salad is using chopped rotisserie chicken or leftover chicken. This fresh and easy favorite features the bright spiciness of curry and the sweetness of grapes, currants, apple, and pineapple.
