My father dreamed up this curry and chutney combination. Now my family cooks it on road trips—in rain and sun, in the mountains, even on the beach. Adjust the curry for taste and heat. —Dina Moreno, Seattle, WA
This is one of my family's favorite summer dishes. The kids love this filling salad's sweet dressing. While the chicken is grilling, I prepare the dressing and vegetables.—Stephanie Moon, Boise, Idaho.
Here's a perfect summer recipe from Linda Schwab-Edmundson, Shokan, New York. A distinctive dressing of cilantro, cumin and lime is refreshing over crisp lettuce and tender chicken. Toss in cherry tomatoes, if you'd like, for color.
This tender marinated chicken gets a hint of sweetness when drizzled with a fruity sauce. I strain the mashed raspberries since our kids don't like the seeds. It's always a hit with rice pilaf and a salad.
