Oregano-Lemon Chicken

I've been known to make this recipe for Oregano-Lemon Chicken twice a week&mdahs;it's so delicious. I like to call it "sticky chicken" since the slightly sweet sauce of honey, lemon juice and herbs nicely coats the chicken thighs. —Dorothy Reinhold, Malibu, California

Chicken Breast with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Sun-dried tomatoes provide intense flavor in this delightful chicken entree. If you have all the ingredients for this dish ready before you start to cook, the recipe comes together quickly. —Heather Nandell, Johnston, Iowa

Yogurt-Marinated Chicken

This tender Yogurt-Marinated Chicken gets its zing from chili powder and cumin. For variety, add a tablespoon of tomato paste to the marinade or replaces the chili powder with chopped green chilies. It's a surefire hit for summer cookouts. —Naheed Saleem, Stamford, Connecticut

Montego Bay Chicken

You don't need high-fat ingredients to make this grilled Montego Bay Chicken taste good. The marinade both flavors and tenderizes the meat. —Julie De Matteo, Clementon, New Jersey

Seasoned Lemon Chicken

This Seasoned Lemon Chicken has been a family favorite since I clipped the recipe out of a newspaper some years ago. It's often on our dinner table, since chicken is a staple in my freezer. If I'm out of lemon, I substitute a sprinkling of lemon pepper. —Pat Miller, Joplin, Missouri
