Thai Chicken Satay with Spicy Peanut Sauce

From EatingWell

Satay is Southeast Asian street food--strips of spiced meat, threaded on skewers and sold at carts all over the region. Although it's served with all sorts of condiments, peanut sauce has become the Western favorite. And why not? It's spicy, sweet, salty and the perfect match to the chicken strips.

This simple classic marinade is perfect paired with dark or gamy meats. You can vary the flavor depending on what kind of red wine you choose. For a greater intensity, try using a full-bodied red, such as Shiraz or Zinfandel. For a more delicate flavor, use a lighter red, such as Pinot Noir or Burgundy.

Lime-Honey Glazed Chicken

From EatingWell

The sweet and tangy lime-honey marinade is simmered on the stovetop and then used as a sauce to baste and glaze the chicken. Don't let the chicken marinate any longer than 2 hours; overmarinating in soy sauce and lime juice can make the texture of the meat spongy.

Curried Chicken with Sweet Potatoes & Cauliflower

From EatingWell

Boneless, skinless chicken thighs, with a little help from the well-seasoned yogurt marinade, remain moist and tender when oven-roasted. Hint: Soaking the prepared vegetables in ice water for 15 minutes before roasting will hydrate them, making them more moist and tender when cooked.

Shaker-Style Smoked Chicken Thighs

From EatingWell

Based on a recipe of the Shakers, a Quaker splinter group that flourished in the Eastern U.S. in the mid-19th century, this marinade derives its flavor from a hefty jolt of cider vinegar and lots of chopped shallots. Apple-wood chips are our first choice for smoking, but maple and hickory impart great flavor as well.

Ginger-Coconut Chicken

From EatingWell

The wonderful flavors of southern India - coconut milk, dried Thai chiles and coriander seed - provide a pleasant punch to a basic chicken breast. Although the ingredients look exotic, this is a deceptively easy dish you'll be proud to serve to guests. Feel free to use different cuts of chicken, bone-in or boneless; just adjust the cooking time accordingly. You can also grill the chicken.
