8. On a Stick

Meat on a stick it doesnt get any more primeval than that. But, contrary to what you might be thinking, were not talking about kabobs here, but rather half chickens cooked over a charcoal fire. Actually, the sticks are optional, and so is cooking outdoors, but doesnt that make it more fun?

Mole, mole, mole chocolate and chiles are an unlikely yet amazing combination, and the two together with meat even more so. But, doesnt that sort of thing take hours, or even days of preparation? Not so with this recipe. It doesnt claim maximum levels of authenticity, but it does minimize the work. Plus, who can resist Venezuelan dark chocolate?

When it comes to fuss-free dinners, chicken is the ultimate crowd-pleasing ingredient. The versatile, lean meat&mdashwhether you&rsquore working with boneless breasts, bone-in thighs, or even a straight-from-the-store rotisserie bird&mdashtakes to a variety of cuisines, flavors, and cooking techniques. Kids love it, too.

One of our favorite ways to cook chicken is in the slow cooker. This method's a lifesaver for busy weeknights: simply toss your bird in, set it, and forget it until dinnertime. Slow-cooked chicken is incredibly tender, too. For dishes you know you'll want to eat again soon, we recommend doubling up on ingredients and tossing leftovers in the freezer.

Here, we've rounded up some of Real Simple's best, easy-to-make slow cooker chicken recipes your whole family will love. We cover the classics&mdashfrom Slow Cooker Chicken with Biscuits to Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Pot Pie&mdashplus plenty of fresh takes on delicious dinner ideas, like Chicken Mole Chili and Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup.


1. Freshest Is Best

The fresher the chicken, the better-tasting it can be. For the best quality, cook with chicken that you pick up fresh on the day that you're planning to prepare it. But if that's not realistic for you, store fresh chicken in the coldest part of your refrigerator for up to two days. If it's frozen, whole chicken can keep its quality for up to a year (chicken parts for nine months) when properly wrapped. Before using frozen chicken, be sure all parts of it are completely thawed in the fridge for the most even cooking results. And when ready to prepare any chicken, don't let it hang out too long at room temperature. The safest bet is to cook it within one hour of it reaching your countertop for meal prep. Set a timer so you don't forget.

There’s a big difference between serving size and portion size. Serving size is the recommended amount for a healthy diet portion size is the amount you choose to eat. One serving of cooked chicken is 3 ounces. That’s about the size of a deck of cards, and much smaller than a restaurant-style chicken breast.

Next-Level Grilling Ideas

A whole bird on the grill is one of the best things you can hope to eat this summer. Juicy, smoky and crispy-skinned, it pleases a party of wing, breast and thigh lovers all in one go. There are lots of different methods &mdash from the time-tested spatchcocking route to a genius Bundt pan hack &mdash all of which will give you great results. Pro tip: Just as you do with a steak, let your chicken rest for 20 minutes or more for the juiciest results.

Grilled Spatchcocked Greek Chicken

Grilled Blackened Cajun Chicken

Soy-Garlic-Glazed Cola Can Chicken

Slow-Grilled Chipotle Chicken

Grilled Bundt-Pan Provencal Chicken with Roasted Potatoes

Grilled Whole Porchetta-Style Chicken

Grilled Curry Chicken

A simple rub of curry powder, parsley, salt and pepper is all this spatchcocked chicken needs to grill up perfectly juicy and flavorful. Just be sure to plan ahead the seasoned chicken needs to rest in the refrigerator overnight before cooking.

Smoked Whole Chicken with Honey BBQ Sauce

You won&rsquot believe the flavor that&rsquos packed into this chicken. Best of all, you don&rsquot need a smoker. You can achieve the same results on your grill if you make a few wood chip foil packets.

The Best Grilled Chicken

We simplified the grilled chicken cooking process with this recipe, which leads to a smoky, super-juicy bird that is filled with the bright flavors of lemon and herbs. We spatchcocked a whole chicken to increase the surface area that makes contact with the grill and used a generous amount of herb butter to help it self-baste as it gently cooks over indirect heat.

Beer Can Chicken

Beer can chicken is a summertime classic &mdash and this recipe makes it easy. You only need a handful of ingredients, all of which are probably in your kitchen right now.

Grilled Chicken With Redeye BBQ Sauce

It&rsquos tough to beat a tender, juicy barbecue chicken. But, we think Michael Symon&rsquos done it &mdash by kicking up the tangy sauce with the toasty flavors of coffee.

Yogurt Marinated Grilled Chicken with Harissa

You&rsquoll never have mediocre grilled chicken when you use yogurt in your marinade. It makes the chicken perfectly tender and adds a nice, creamy richness to it. Combined with the smoky, charred flavor of the grill, it gives you a summery main that&rsquos guaranteed to impress.


4 Easy Ways to Cook Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts

With boneless, skinless chicken breasts on hand, you'll always have something quick and satisfying to eat for dinner. Whether sautéed on the stovetop, boiled, or roasted, there's an easy chicken breast recipe for any occasion. Once you learn how to cook chicken breasts the right way, you'll never have to worry about dry meat again.

At the top of the list of essential weeknight recipes you&aposll find skinless, boneless chicken breasts. They taste delicious with pretty much any flavor you add to them while providing a great source of protein to your meals. The best (and worst) part about the versatile meat is that they are quick cooking, which means you have to know how to cook boneless, skinless chicken breasts correctly to achieve the best flavor and texture in your dishes. Follow our tips on how to cook chicken breast on the stove as well as other easy methods and recipes for cooking juicy, tender chicken breasts.


Potato Filling

Soft and creamy and sometimes laced with spice, potatoes make a hearty filling for dishes from pierogi to samosas. Spud stuffing is a satisfying alternative to meat and a frugal way to use potato leftovers, whose mild flavor and adaptable texture make them ripe for experimentation. Potatoes and chorizo is a combination that shows up often in sandwiches, tacos, and burritos in Mexico. The cheese topping in a papas con chorizo recipe is a nice touch when serving the skillet dish, but unnecessary when using the mix as a filling. For a healthful alternative that doesn't stint on traditional taste, swap out the chorizo for broccoli, or another vegetable, and add chorizo spices such as cumin, chili powder, and vinegar.
