Roasted, Baked, Broiled, Fried, Stir-Fried, Here are 10 Terrific Recipes for Chicken.
There’s been a big run on chicken since we started sheltering in place in the U.S. Fresh chicken sales are up 76.5 percent according to IRI, a Chicago-based Analytics firm. “This”, says Chad Martin, “is the most substantial shift I’ve ever seen”. Since Mr. Martin is the President of Poultry for Tyson Foods, he knows what he is talking about. Tyson is the #1 producer of broiler chicken in the country. Consumers have picked up every bit of the decrease in sales to the food service industry. It’s not just Chicken that we stay-at-homers are buying. Beef sales are up 73.1 percent and ‘the other white meat’, Pork, has jumped up by 82.9. Today I’d like to concentrate on Chicken. Because we have lots and lots and lots of Chicken recipes. In total you can find 127 ways to cook chicken on Chewing The Fat.

To cut the recipes down to 10 was a fairly monumental undertaking. So what we did was to include recipes for Whole Chickens, Chicken Breasts, Thighs and Wings. There are recipes for the workhorses of the Chicken world—boneless skinless breasts and thighs. There are recipes for oven-roasted Chicken, Stovetop Chicken, Chicken stir-fries, Chicken soup, and my personal favorite above all others, Fried Chicken. If you have a Rotisserie Chicken please look that up in the Index. We can no longer find those easily and I am really keen on helping you out with all that frozen chicken you’re wondering what on earth to do with. So here they are.

Great recipes Monte! With all the time we have on our hands these are the recipes to try! I just have question—the current “food police” urges people to not wash poultry, and it can spread bacteria round the work area. Why do some recipes still include this step? D. Greenspan’s recipe has this in the instructions.
Hello Marie, When you wrote this I thought this might be a change in information due to Covid-19. But I immediately googled and found dozens of warnings against washing chicken. And of course, wouldn’t you know it, a pushback from many home cooks. I think it’s worth adding this link so you can see what I mean. Dorie Greenspan is one of my most favorite recipe writers but apparently here she didn’t get the CDC memo. https://www.nbcconnecticut.com/news/local/cdc-warns-consumers-to-avoid-washing-raw-chicken-or-other-poultry/127492/
