While I’m a fan of slow, quiet Sundays babysitting a simmering pot, Monday (and Tuesday and Wednesday, well, you get it) nights are another story. Between work and life in general, I'm often not thinking about dinner until 7 p.m., and there’s no time to waste—it’s a Chopped-style countdown until food is in my belly. Enter chicken: It’s affordable, versatile, a speedy supper ready to 'wing' anything. In short, chicken is a weeknight winner.

There are so many different directions you can take a simple piece of chicken. But before you get started, you'll want to understand USDA labels and get your hands on some kitchen essentials, too. Then, you can decide how you want to prep and cook your chicken, whether you're making stir-fry or a simple pan roast. Once you've got that down, take full advantage of its tender meat with hot soups, cold salads, and easy oven-baked recipes.
