ZA’ATAR CHICKEN with Lemon Yogurt

Intensely garlicky and lemony, this Middle Eastern–inspired dish gets an earthy, herbal character from za’atar, a mix of dried herbs, sumac, and sesame seeds that’s rubbed all over the boneless thighs along with garlic, olive oil, and plenty of fresh parsley. Don’t be surprised at the number of garlic cloves called for here. Grated into a puree, they melt into…

BLOOD ORANGE CHICKEN with Scotch Whiskey and Olives

A little more involved than the other sheet-pan suppers in this book, there are several steps necessary to create this lively, pretty, Mediterranean-flavored dish—including caramelizing pans of sliced blood oranges, marinated chicken, and roasted fennel and onion under the broiler in quick succession. It’s not at all hard, and the layering of flavors—briny olives, smoky, garlicky meat, and juicy-sweet citrus—is…

HARISSA CHICKEN with Leeks, Potatoes, and Yogurt

One of my all-time favorites, this sheet-pan supper has it all—spicy harissa-laced roasted chicken; sweet, browned leeks; crunchy potatoes; plus a cool garnish of salted yogurt and plenty of fresh bright herbs. It’s a little lighter than your average roasted chicken and potatoes dinner, and a lot more profoundly flavored. The key here (and with all sheet-pan suppers) is to…

Sticky TAMARIND CHICKEN with Crisp Lettuce

Sticky, zesty, and ridiculously easy to make, part of the pleasure of this dish is how the juicy tamarind-glazed chicken contrasts with the cool, crisp lettuce and, for chile lovers, the zingy heat of a sliced jalapeño. It’s got a sweet-and-spicy appeal similar to eating chicken wings, but the chicken thighs make it more knife-and-fork friendly for your dinner plate.…

SESAME CHICKEN with Cashews and Dates

In the classic Taiwanese dish, three cups chicken, a sauce of toasted sesame oil, dark soy sauce, and honeyed rice wine give morsels of chicken and scallions an extraordinary depth of flavor, while chiles and fresh ginger add verve. In my version, I also toss in slivers of dates and roasted cashews to add both a sugary depth and a…

Crispy CHICKEN CUTLETS with Kumquats and Cranberries

A fried, breaded chicken cutlet is a wonderful thing—crunchy, golden, juicy within. Universally adored even when served simple and plain, they also take well to embellishment. This slightly fancier version is scented with cumin and citrus, and served with a sweet-tart cranberry chutney spiked with a little jalapeño. If you’re pressed for time, skip the cranberry-kumquat chutney and serve this…
