Chicken

There's a reason chicken is the go-to choice for home cooks everywhere: When you're putting together dinner, you want something tasty, endlessly versatile and relatively inexpensive. Goodness knows, there are thousands of chicken recipes out there. It's a culinary chameleon, equally at home in rich, aromatic Indian butter chicken, home-style Southern fried chicken, or in a bubbling pot of dumplings. It helps that chicken is so darn convenient. You can buy it whole (perfect for roasting), cut into pieces, or even packaged into your favorite parts (thighs or legs for dark-meat lovers, breasts for those who prefer white meat). Or cut to the chase and buy a pre-cooked rotisserie bird - there's nothing easier than shredding the meat to add to enchiladas, soups, or casseroles. No clucking around: This bird is a home cook's best friend.
