5 Saucy Chicken Recipes That Are Finger-licking Good

July 30, 2015

There are 3 million chicken recipes on the internet. We're here to show you the good ones. Win, win.

Today: Saucy chicken recipes that kick dinner up a notch—gravy boat required.

You know that dinner—the one where you finish it, then check to see if anyone is looking before running your finger through the pool of sauce at the bottom of your plate, trying to get every last bit of goodness before you clear dinner. These are the chicken dinners doused in tangy marinades, covered in creamy, consider-licking-the-plate-good white wine sauces, and soaked in bright, herbaceous blends. In some cases, the sauce is the best part—you let it pool on top of rice and pasta, and keep a gravy boat on the side for refills. And the best part is, the sauces in these chicken recipes work great with other meals (not that you'd want to switch out chicken):
