12 Ways to Cook Chicken
Ed Anderson

We’ve all heard it before — chicken is like a blank canvas, it's relatively cheap, and it’s a great source of protein. You can do pretty much anything you want with chicken, whether you choose to fry, bake, roast, grill, or sauté it. And when the craving strikes, even though people say a lot of things taste like chicken, nothing will satisfy except for, well, chicken.

But what are you going to do with it? If you've put chicken on your shopping list, but don't know what else to buy, then you’ve come to the right place. We have some great ideas to inspire you — everything from innovative salads to recipes by renowned chefs. If you’re cooking for a crowd, check out the Tuscan-Style Marinated Chicken with Couscous; if you’re cooking just for yourself, we have that covered, too. Some of these recipes are meant to inspire, some are twists on familiar favorites, and others may be a bit of a surprise. Indeed, there's something for everyone here.

So even though a great many things apparently taste like chicken, luckily, not all chicken tastes the same. Because there’s more than one way to cook a chicken. In fact, there are at least 12.
