This creamy, spicy dip has all the flavor of Buffalo wings, minus the mess. GET THE RECIPE

Crisp tortillas filled with gooey melted cheddar and shredded chicken in a smoky sauce -- these truly are the ultimate quesadillas. The recipe is adapted from the website of Curtis Stone, one of my favorite chefs and cookbook authors. GET THE RECIPE

I've tried many chicken chili recipes over the years, but none as satisfying as this one. What's more, it's a one-pot meal that you can have on the dinner table in under an hour. GET THE RECIPE

4. Asian Chicken Noodle Salad with Ginger Peanut Dressing


A bowl of soba noodles, chicken, and ginger-peanut dressing makes a super tasty main dish salad. And you barely have to turn on the stove. GET THE RECIPE

6. Indian Spiced Red Lentil & Chicken Soup


Made with a rotisserie chicken and canned coconut milk, this easy version of Mulligatawny soup is a one-pot supper that's ready in 45 minutes. I like to serve it with a scoop of basmati rice but naan is all you need to complete the meal. GET THE RECIPE

5. Chinese Chicken Salad with Sesame Ginger Vinaigrette


This recipe is similar to the popular Chinese Chicken Salad served at many restaurants, only without the unhealthy fried wonton strips piled on top. A store-bought rotisserie chicken makes it quick and easy. GET THE RECIPE
