Best Summertime Chicken Recipes

Seasoned cooks know that keeping a few grilled chicken breasts handy for a breezy weeknight meal is just plain smart. Whether it’s a simple caponata (pictured above), or Rachael’s no-cook sauces (we love Lemon-Dijon and Pineapple-Ginger!), dinner’s ready in a snap.

But sometimes it’s easy to fall into a recipe rut, especially when temperatures rise and the days get longer. 

Get recharged and change up your typical chicken dinner this week with some of the best and brightest flavors of summer. Peaches, fresh peas, watermelon, mint, and leafy greens are just a few of the ingredients that will have your mealtime rotation feeling refreshed!
