Our Best-Ever Chicken Recipes

In honor of our 25th anniversary, we compiled a collection of our readers' best-loved chicken recipes from the past 25 years. Based on research from MyRecipes.com, we pulled the Cooking Light recipes that received the most votes and highest star ratings.

First up, Chicken and Guacamole Tostadas are the weeknight cook's dream come true. The secret here is taking rotisserie (or any pre-cooked chicken) and tossing with smoked paprika, giving the chicken rich, grill-like flavor—with no cooking. Mash up a homemade guac and stir together the salsa, and you’ve got a truly fresh meal with no cook time. Add in a few of the jalapeño seeds for extra heat.
