COOKING CLASS: How to Cook Chicken

Dear Aspiring Chef,

Have you ever wanted to be one of those cooks who could go to the grocery store, pick up some meat or poultry that’s on sale, and instinctively know what to do with it to make dinner?

Well, that’s exactly what this class will teach you with my help (and I’m a professionally trained chef)! In this deep-dive into the vast world of chicken dishes, I’ll take you through each cut of chicken and show you basic seasoning and cooking techniques from the stovetop to the oven to the grill and the slow cooker.

And you’ll also learn about side dishes that pair well with chicken! All in RecipeLion Cooking Club’s How to Cook Chicken streaming-video cooking class with me, Chef Addie Gundry!

What better place to start such a class than with a “Roasted Chicken” recipe, an essential classic dish for any cook. See what to do with a whole chicken’s innards. And what about trussing a chicken (don’t be afraid— it’s easy!). How does that work?

I prefer to roast with a handled pan, rather than a large roasting pan, because you can put the pan in and take it out of the oven more easily—plus, the whole chicken needs only just-enough space in the pan to fully roast.

Drizzle olive oil over the whole chicken and liberally season with salt and pepper. I call this “making it rain with your salt and pepper”—see how I do it in this cooking class! Tip: Use small containers, such as ramekins, for your salt and pepper—not shakers—so it’s easier to sprinkle on top of the chicken.

Roast in a 450-degree oven for about an hour, and voilà—you’ve now got a crispy, moist, flavorful roasted chicken!

Next, you’ll learn how to harvest all the chicken meat from your cooked roaster—and discover what to leave on the carcass for making a flavorful chicken stock. Nothing gets wasted in my kitchen!

If you’re looking for the best ways to cook chicken, view this cooking class, How to Cook Chicken, right now—one of many classes in the RecipeLion Cooking Club’s Library.

And the How to Cook Chicken class includes 5 total recipes with all of the specific instructions and tips you need, so that it’s clear and easy for you to make everything yourself at home. In addition to the “Roasted Chicken” recipe, you’ll get:

  • Chicken Foil Packets—This recipe is so very easy and convenient…and with less mess because you cook inside the foil packets! Each foil packet is an individual serving and includes a chicken breast, peppers, spicy BBQ sauce, and pineapple chunks to cool it down. See for yourself how I cut and chop the peppers—both red and green—so they’re consistent pieces that will properly and evenly cook. You’ll also learn how best to chop the jalapeño pepper to avoid unwieldy chunks. Then watch me show you how to build the foil packets and place them on the baking sheet, ready to cook.
  • BBQ Ranch Grilled Chicken—This recipe starts with using a grill pan inside, heated and oiled. Of course, in nice weather, you can grill outdoors. See how I pound the chicken breasts to get the right thickness for grilling. Season and coat the chicken breasts with a BBQ-and-ranch-dressing marinade. Grill for 4–5 minutes on each side, and you’re ready to prepare and plate your chicken with slaw for a delicious meal.

Rounding out your How to Cook Chicken class, you’ll get two more recipes and recommended ways to cook vegetables as side dishes:

  • Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken—This is a practical recipe for getting shredded chicken that you can use in a soup, sandwich, or salad.
  • Homemade Chicken Stock—Get my super simple recipe for making homemade chicken stock that also uses a lot of “scrap” items from other recipes.
  • Vegetable Roasting Cheat Sheet—Get my one-page chart about how to roast 15 different vegetables that go well with your chicken dishes.
