How many times have you cooked yourself the same old chicken breasts (ya know, the ones you’re totally sick of eating) over the last decade? Too many to count. So, in honor of PureWow’s tenth birthday (!!!), why not treat yourself to a dinner you actually *want* to eat? Presenting our ten best chicken recipes from the last ten years—each one easy and exciting to make (not to mention absurdly delicious).
10. Meal-Prep Honey-Sesame Chicken with Broccolini
We don’t blame you for wanting to get ahead of the lunch game, dear reader. Especially when it only takes you 35 minutes to make four servings of crispy thighs, sesame greens and cauliflower rice.
9. Chicken and Snap Pea Stir-Fry
This is our go-to when we’re at our laziest and really, really don’t feel like cooking. Isn’t it comforting to know you’re always a mere 20 minutes away from takeout-inspired bliss?
8. One-Pan Roasted Chicken with Carrots
Things we love: crispy chicken thighs. Things we hate: dirty dishes. This beauty offers the best of both worlds, along with roasted garlic and fresh herbs.
7. Firecracker Chicken with Rice
Sweet, spicy and sublimely sticky. The secret to the buttery glaze? Sriracha and a few spoonsfuls of brown sugar.
6. Rotisserie Chicken Ramen
It’s a far cry from the 99-cent microwave kind you lived on in college. But it’s TBH just as easy to make, considering it stars precooked, store-bought chicken.
5. Keto Sheet-Pan Chicken with Rainbow Veggies
Carrots, broccoli, bell peppers, oh my! We have a feeling the chicken’s sesame-soy marinade will be an easy win with your kids, too.
4. Ina Garten’s Updated Chicken Marbella
It’s no surprise that her majesty the Barefoot Contessa made the cut. What is surprising, though, is that there’s a whole head and a half of garlic in the marinade, along with prunes, olives and capers.
3. Slow-Cooker Chicken Teriyaki
Oh, Crock-Pot. What would we do without you? We wouldn’t be setting, forgetting and devouring this takeout classic, that’s for sure.
2. Balsamic Cranberry Roast Chicken
We’re sort of going steady with our cast-iron skillet, and it’s no mystery why. Just take a look at that crackly, crispy chicken skin that *didn’t* need to be browned on the stove before roasting to perfection in the oven.
1. White Wine Coq au Vin
Hearty dishes that are undeniably elegant are what the French do best. And your inner Julia Child is begging to try her hand at this foolproof rendition that swaps red vino for white and miraculously comes together in under an hour. And there you have it: Our most popular chicken recipe of all time.
