    We’ve tried the Lemon Butter Chicken, Oven Fried Chicken with Mustard Glaze, and Ranch Cheddar chicken. They are family favorites now and we make them frequently. Delicious! Just need to try the other ones.

    I never follow any recipes, but I am tired to prepared the same every night and I found your site and starting today I am cooking my favorite Thai dish, the easiest way possible. Great recipes also I was watching the videos, great videos.

  3. I discovered you about a year ago and my entire family LOVES your recipes. To keep things family friendly we call you “D Squared” and my kids are always up for trying something new if I say it is your recipe. I have just one observation/request. I think all of these recipes are made with chicken thighs, and we are a white meat family. Would you consider adding to your recipes how to modify them for white meat? I want to stay as true as possible to what you have created. Thank you!

  4. Thank you. Now which recipe to cool first.

  5. You always knock my socks of with your yummy dishes, and this one is nothing show of.

  6. You should know that I’ve been using this list for the last year. It’s life saving. When I don’t have much time to think about what to make, I just grab some chicken thighs out of the freezer to defrost, go to work, pull up this list in my spare time to see which recipe works with ingredients I already have at home, come home and like routine just start prepping. I like that most recipes have the same pattern to it. Sear the chicken, whisk together a sauce, pour over chicken and then bake. It’s the perfect way to cook thighs. So much flavor on the skin and so juicy every time. Thank you!!

  7. I did not find Recipe #7. Is it still available? We eat a lot of chicken and these recipes look amazing! Thank you!

  8. Why do all of your recipes just use chicken thighs? Why not chicken breasts?

  9. I like Lemon Chicken with Asparagus and Potatoes and Pan Roasted Lemon Chicken. I have made both at home and it was really delicious. Thanks for sharing all those recipes. I will try other recipes also.

    Thanks,

  18. Oh my goodness, those look absolutely perfect. Extra juicy and a little crispy. Mmmmm. This has to be one of those most appealing chicken recipes I’ve come across thus far. Keep up the good work!

  19. Absolutely love your chicken recipes, keep up the great work!

  20. I love all of the recipes you post! You are so descriptive about taste, ingredients, sweet funny comments! You are perfect at this blog! Keep up the wonderful job. Thank you for all you do

  21. I just discovered your site recently and have made a few of your chicken dishes so far. The first was the Baked Honey Sesame and the next was Parmesan Crusted. After looking through these recipes and bookmarking each one, I must tell you that you should probably win some Master Chicken Chef Trophy or something. The sauces are almost obscenely tasty (I wish I could fill my bathtub and take a soak) and the chicken is always crispy on the outside and a juice bomb on the inside. Thank you for sharing your creativity! I can’t wait to make each of these meals.

    • Brenna, you summed up exactly what I was thinking perfectly! Great choice of words! We have made probably 30-40 of her recipes since discovering this gem of a website and only one of them was’t just to die for (and I take the blame because I omitted the bacon in the recipe to appease the vegetarian at the office…..bad choice, NEVER omit the bacon! Lol!). Everything is so yummy and so easy!

  22. I love ALL of these! I get so bored with the usual chicken recipes I make. Totally trying some of these! 🙂

  23. I love this roundup. I’m always looking for new and easy recipes for weeknights. Thanks so much!

  24. I loved baked chicken – it’s one of my favourite quick weeknight dinners!
