Chicken is the most popular meat, and for good reason. It's mild, easy to prepare inexpensive, and can be flavored so many ways. This collection is for chicken made with a sauce. Chicken with sauce is automatically going to be more tender and more flavorful than plain baked, grilled, or poached chicken. And when the recipe has a sauce, all you have to add is some pasta or rice and a vegetable for a complete meal.
You can change these recipes in many ways. If it calls for chicken breasts, substitute thighs and cook a few minutes longer. Or use chicken drumsticks. The chicken with cherry sauce recipe can be made with grapes or raspberries instead. Use your imagination to create your own wonderful recipes - and then write them down so they can become part of your regular rotation.
