I like to sprinkle this chicken stew with toasted almonds or cashews and serve with hot couscous. Flavored with cinnamon and a touch of sweetness from the apricots, this stew tastes like you fussed. It's great for potlucks, too! —Angela Buchanan, Longmont, Colorado
Moist and tender chicken thighs make a delicious hot entree for winter months. Just add a salad and a lemon dessert. I set the table with warm, sunny Mediterranean shades and patterns that look gorgeous with this colorful meal.
This dish is always a hit! The shrimp, orzo, tomatoes and cayenne pepper remind me of a Creole favorite, but the Italian seasoning adds a different twist. The strips of chicken thighs stay nice and moist during the slow cooking.

The enticing aroma of oranges and barbecue awaits you after removing the lid from this tasty dish. Summertime doesn't mean you can't enjoy a hot, hearty meal! If you have a rice cooker, you can make a side dish of rice to serve with the chicken.—Darlene Brenden, Salem, Oregon
