In a chicken rut? Check out these nine mouthwatering ways to prepare this ubiquitous protein!

No. 1: Scott Conant's Pan Roasted Chicken with Potatoes & Green Olives

This simple, savory dish is easy to prepare but delivers big on flavor. It’s the perfect meal to pull out of your back pocket when you’re low on supplies but still want a yummy dinner.

No. 2: Lizzie’s Roasted Chicken

Do you want to host the Sunday dinner that everyone in your family, your friendship circle, and your block will angle to get an invite to? Here’s your secret weapon – the best roast chicken you will ever make, courtesy of Michael Symon. The bird is seasoned with lemon, bay leaves, thyme, garlic and onion before being roasted in a cast-iron pan until the skin caramelizes to a deep brown crackled texture – perfection! And to take it to the next level, Michael serves the chicken with a multi-layered salsa verde.

No. 3: Grandma Ruthie’s Potato Chip Chicken

This recipe for a potato-chip-coated fried chicken comes to us from Adam Perry Lang’s grandma. Adam makes it a little healthier by using boneless, skinless chicken breasts.

Tip: Season your ingredients with salt individually to get a good salt level in every layer of the dish.

No. 4: Spicy Chicken and Cheddar Waffle Sandwiches

Yup, you heard that right. Fried chicken ON a waffle. A cheddar waffle. With bacon. And a maple syrup sauce.

No. 5: Chicken Provencal One-Pot

This comforting French stew, which features red wine, Herbes de Provence and saffron, is the perfect dish for a chilly fall or winter night.

No. 6: Crispy Chicken Vesuvio

If a picture is worth a thousand words, we just respectfully ask you to take a look at that beautiful photo above. It says it all! And the meal cooks up quickly, with a deep flavor developed by browning and cooking all the ingredients in the same cast-iron skillet.

No. 7: Grant’s Five-Ingredient Crispy Garlic Chicken and Broccoli

This heavenly garlic dish couldn’t be easier to make. You just pop some broccoli on a baking sheet, and put a rack of chicken over the top. Coat the chicken with roasted garlic and a little parmesan, then bake! Done!

No. 8: Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches with Red Cabbage Mango Slaw

These barbeque chicken sandwiches are the perfect summer meal when you’re craving BBQ flavor but don’t want to stand over a hot grill.

No. 9: Super Sriracha Wings with Pickled Carrot and Celery Sticks

We had to feature wings on this list, and you can’t beat these spicy Sriracha wings that are served with creatively pickled carrots and celery. And these are baked – not fried!
