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."
We used all packaged veggies (baby carrots, frozen pearl onions and jarred artichoke hearts) to make this Mediterranean-inspired roast chicken a convenient Sunday supper choice. Luscious honey-mustard pan gravy adds to the appeal. If you like, serve with Herbed Brown Rice and use the leftover chicken and rice to make Easy Chicken Gumbo later in the week.

Orange juice, red sweet pepper and green onions make a sweet-and-tangy sauce for chicken in this colorful stir-fry recipe, which comes from Jake's restaurant at the Midnight Star Casino in Deadwood, South Dakota.

Salvatore's Ristorante in Indianapolis has served this classic Italian dish for years. Artichokes, white wine and pistachios add flavor and texture to a simple sauce spooned over sautéed chicken. The recipe takes only 30 minutes from start to finish.
Garlic lovers will enjoy the aroma of this chicken almost as much as its flavor. The recipe comes from Ristorange Brissago at Grand Geneva Resort & Spa in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. We've reduced their suggested 40 cloves of garlic to about 16--though you can add more if you like!
These succulent chicken wings might disappear as fast as you can grill them. The recipe comes from Danny Edwards Famous Kansas City BBQ, formerly Li'l Jake's Eat It and Beat It. The tiny, no-frills eatery has served weekday lunch crowds in Kansas City for more than two decades.
Chicken breast and chopped broccoli combine with a soup-based cream sauce and noodles in this classic potluck dish. We've lightened the traditional recipe by using reduced-fat, reduced-sodium soup and fat-free sour cream, though you can substitute the richer versions if you prefer.
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.

Zia's restaurant on the Hill in St. Louis uses provel in this grilled chicken dish. It's a cheese made in the neighborhood that tastes like a blend of cheddar, Swiss and provolone. You can substitute mozzarella if provel isn't available.
This crispy chicken keeps diners returning to the Brookville Hotel restaurant in Abilene, Kansas. Brookeville Restaurant owner Mark Martin skillet-fries his chicken in lard, just as his grandma did. If you'd rather, you can cook your chicken in shortening or cooking oil.
Nina Swan-Kohler of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, loves easy-to-make dishes. Tex-Mex Cheesy Chicken Chowder is one of her favorites. "It uses a variety of convenience foods that are stirred together in one big pot, and brings out the great flavor of all the ingredients," Nina says.
Smoked cheese melts inside chicken breasts for this easy-to-make entrée. It's from the Roth Kase USA cheese factory in Monroe, Wisconsin. The company says the hole in the center of its Italian-style Rofumo lets the distinctive hickory-smoke flavor penetrate the cheese. If you can't buy Rofumo, substitute smoked Gouda, Edam or cheddar.
