I’m always looking for new ways to jazz up boneless chicken thighs with vegetables, a creamy sauce, or bacon. It’s always fun to cook chicken because there’s so much you can do with it. Some of my favorite chicken recipes include Chicken in Creole Sauce, Simple Roasted Chicken, and Chicken with Rice, a simple and one-pan meal.
