Here at BA, we publish a loooooootttt of chicken recipes, and choosing which fall into the “very best chicken recipes” isn’t easy. After all, you can prepare it loads of different ways, each with its own merits: There’s fried, roasted, marinated, poached, sandwiched. Some of the best chicken recipes don’t even need sides (looking at you chicken cordon bleu, you too, popcorn chicken)! And while we love all our chicken recipes, there’s always going to be a pecking order. These are our very best chicken recipes—the dishes our staff and readers alike turn to again and again. In other words, this is our Chicken Recipes Hall of Fame.
