Chinese Chicken Noodle Salad

If (like certain '80s alt-rock bands) you don't like Mondays, you need an easy-does-it dinner to kick off your week. A 20-minute meal that's as delicious as our Chinese Chicken and Noodle Salad with Peanut Sauce should do the trick nicely. The secret ingredient? Pennies-per-serving ramen noodles.

Chicken Tetrazzini

Sunday is the perfect day for classic, comforting Chicken Tetrazzini. A creamy sauce laced with nutmeg and sherry drenches the pasta and chicken. Add salad and crusty rosemary bread and a spicy Chianti if you're a fan of red; a crisp Viognier if you prefer whites.

Chicken Scaloppine

A Tuesday night picker-upper is just what the dinner doctor ordered. Chicken Scaloppine is simmering with heady Mediterranean flavors: salty Greek olives, capers and lemon. Add a side of garlic-sauteed broccoli rabe or a peppery arugula salad.

Chicken Salad

Maybe you want to start your weekend with a laid-back dinner. Or maybe you'd like to kick the party into high gear. No problem. One rotisserie chicken plus a few pantry staples equals a chicken salad favorite for everyone at the table or a trayful of mouthwatering cocktail-hour nibbles. Try Curried Chicken Salad, or Lemony Chicken and Red Grape Salad .

Creamy Chicken Soup

The countdown to the weekend is officially underway—a bowl of Creamy Chicken Soup will tide you over. Decadent in flavor—thanks to the double whammy of tempered egg yolks and heavy cream—this soup needs only a wedge of simple cornbread to call itself dinner.
