Chicken Thighs

First up are those juicy thighs. Soak them in a marinade and you're ready to throw them in the oven when needed. This Asian-style chicken recipe is a great way to go!

Juicy Asian-Style Chicken Thighs

Garlic & Zest

Asian-style marinades call for aggressive flavorings, like a party for your tastebuds. Garlic, of course. Ginger, usually. Soy for that salty umami, some fish sauce for a little funk, acidic vinegar or citrus juice, and sugar and spice for the hot-sweet aspect we all crave.

Chicken Breasts

Next up is the breast, a favorite part of the chicken for its versatility and quality of meat. Make these
tasty Mediterranean wraps or a healthy chicken salad!

Garlic & Zest

Chicken Wings

Now don't forget those wings! Put that oven to use and make these easy baked chicken wings.
