Winner! Winner! Chicken dinner!

Chicken gets a bad rap—clucker plates, depressingly dry boneless skinless diet dinners, sad nuggets. However, I believe that anyone who considers chicken boring doesn’t know how to cook it right. Done right, chicken dinners are indeed winners. This chicken recipes roundup is my argument for our beloved bird.

But don’t just take my word for it. Even Julia Child adores an excellent roast chicken. As she wrote in My Life in France: 

But my favorite remained the basic roast chicken. What a deceptively simple dish. I had come to believe that one can judge the quality of the cook by his or her roast chicken. Above all, it should taste like chicken: it should be so good that even a perfectly simple, buttery roast should be a delight.

Chicken recipes roundup

This post features a roundup of chicken recipes from around Wonder & Sundry, as well as a few favorites from my cookbooks and around the internets. Most recipes from me are small-batch, designed for the solo cook. They do scale up (just click on the multiplier on the recipe).

A few favorite recipes from some of my favorite cooks

Here’s a few of my favorite chicken recipes from some of my favorite cooks. Cookbook links are affiliate links to Bookshop.org, which supports local bookstores.

  • If you haven’t made it, the Buttermilk Chicken from Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat is out of this world.
  • Dorie Greenspan’s Chicken in a Pot: The Lemon and Garlic version from Around My French Table isn’t just fun to crack open, it’s also delicious.
  • What’s wonderful about smitten kitchen’s Better Pot Pies is that they’re mini. You could cut the recipe in half pretty easily to make two instead of four.
  • And, of course, Julia Child’s simple, perfect Poulet Roti from Mastering the Art of French Cooking.
