My dad has been making a basic version of this family favorite for years. I've recently made it my own by spicing it up a bit with hoisin sauce and red pepper flakes. Sometimes I let the chicken and sauce simmer in my slow cooker. —Brigette Schroeder, Yorkville, Illinois
These savory marinated chicken strips are great for a picnic or backyard barbecue. I grill them right along with sausages and hot dogs. Skewering the chicken makes it easy to handle, but you can put the strips directly on the grill or broil them in the oven if you prefer.

It doesn't take a seasoned cook to turn out this scrumptious entree. Served with your favorite salad, it makes a wonderful summer supper. Try it with limeade or orange juice in place of lemonade. My family raves about every refreshing version.
I used to work at a restaurant that served a variation of chicken with penne pasta. I didn't know how easy it would be to make until I gave it a shot at home - now it's always a requested meal around my house. —Rusty Koll, Elmwood, Illinois
Here’s a super recipe you can use with any chicken pieces you like, with or without skin. Plan ahead to marinate chicken overnight for wonderful flavor. Leftovers are fabulous the next day in a salad. Jennifer Nichols, Tuscon, Arizona
I've had this fajita recipe for three years and my husband and I just love it. Be careful with the chipotle peppers as they can be very hot. I changed it up a little to fit our taste. You may want to adjust the amount to your preference. —Melissa Thomeczek, Hannibal, Missouri
Why heat up the kitchen on warm Indian summer evenings when you can take dinner in hand with these hearty chicken pitas from Lynne Ziegler in Odenton, Maryland?
LYNNE’S TIP: I also roll up the chicken strips in flour tortillas and serve as grab-and-go wrap sandwiches. Serve any leftover chicken with mixed greens and the last of the garden tomatoes in lunch salads the next day.
