Chicken is a staple at most dinner tables, and for very good reason. First, kids love it almost as much as adults. And the versatile, lean meat—whether you’re working with boneless, skinless breasts, bone-in thighs and legs, or even a straight-from-the-store rotisserie bird—takes to a variety of cuisines, flavors, and cooking techniques.
