Chicken is one of the most versatile and popular proteins out there. It’s the king of weeknight dinners, one of the more affordable meats you can buy, and something that almost everyone enjoys. One of the reasons we love chicken, and likely why it’s so popular, is just how adaptable this poultry can be. You can make a super simple chicken recipe in just thirty minutes, without sacrificing flavor, or you can use chicken to make a show-stopping main dish. Is there really anything more impressive (or delicious) than a classic, perfectly roasted whole chicken anyways? From spicy to sweet and sour or something super herby, pretty much any flavor can pair well with chicken.
Whether you’re an experienced home cook or someone who’s new to the kitchen, it can be difficult to nail every aspect of cooking chicken.

From there you can learn how to brine, marinate, fry, grill, roast, smoke, and braise chicken, plus everything in between. We also have tips for taking different cuts of chicken to the next level, so you can get super crispy chicken thighs, or make sure chicken breast comes out moist (instead of dry).
