  • Thai-Style Chicken Curry with Basil and Jasmine Rice

    Thai-Style Chicken Curry with Basil and Jasmine Rice

    Because it calls for a full cup of fresh basil, this is a great dish to make in early fall, when the plants in your garden are huge and you’re looking for ways to use them. This dish starts on the stove top but finishes out of the way in the oven, leaving just enough time to make rice for sopping up the creamy sauce.

  • Unforgettable Chicken Pie

    Unforgettable Chicken Pie

    This from-scratch deep-dish chicken casserole comes from a Caledonia, Michigan, reader. "It's not your run-of-the-mill chicken pie," says the reader, who adds a bit of pork sausage for farm-hearty flavor. "Anyone who tries it just can't get enough of it."

  • Wild Rice and Chicken Soup

    Mix a can of cream of chicken soup, mushrooms, veggies and rice mix for the soup base. Any boneless cooked chicken works in this slow-cooker recipe, but chicken thighs, with more moisture from fat, cook the best.

    Creamy Chicken-Broccoli Bake

    Chicken breast and chopped broccoli combine with a soup-based cream sauce and noodles in this classic potluck dish. You can lighten the traditional recipe by using reduced-fat, reduced-sodium soup and fat-free sour cream, if you prefer.

  • Chicken, Tomato and Spinach Mac and Cheese

    Chicken, Tomato and Spinach Mac and Cheese

    We gave homey mac and cheese a refresh. The saucepan sauce is made without a flour thickener, so it's lighter-tasting than baked versions. And adding veggies and chicken makes it a well-rounded meal.
