A good chicken recipe is to marinate boneless chicken breasts in teriyaki sauce for an hour and then bake them for another hour in a 400 F oven. This quick and easy recipe works with any cut-up chicken.

Chicken is highly versatile and can be baked, broiled, boiled, fried or grilled, and the variety of chicken recipes found online or in cookbooks is large. With the addition of just a few seasonings, such as lemon pepper or rosemary, plain chicken can be elevated from a simple dinner to a highly satisfying meal. Cooks should consider marinating chicken in raspberry vinaigrette and fresh rosemary for an hour before grilling it. Leftovers can be made into chicken salad the next day.

Fried chicken is popular and easy to prepare, especially if the oven-frying method is used. This involves pouring a cup of flour in a bag with a dash of salt, pepper, paprika and lemon pepper, then adding the chicken to the bag and shaking it to coat. The cook then places the chicken in a baking dish with 1/4 cup of vegetable oil and oven fries the chicken at 400 F for about an hour or until the chicken is golden brown and the juices run clear.
