Favorite chicken dishes?

Just a little curious on some people's favorite chicken dishes (because there are countless adaptations!)

I would say chicken kiev, cordon bleu, and chicken in a sage-vermouth sauce are my favorites.

We eat a LOT of chicken on a regular basis since husband doesn't eat red meat, but I have several favorite chicken dishes: Plain roast chicken stuffed with lemon & fresh herbs & served with roasted root vegetables; Chicken Scarpariello (chicken thighs with sausage, artichokes, & rosemary); chicken (or turkey) cutlets done Piccata or Marsala style; roasted chicken drumstick/thigh quarters smothered with hot pickled cherry peppers & served over roasted potatoes; and definitely Coq au Vin (chicken braised in red wine with pearl onions & mushrooms) served on a bed of buttered noodles.

My all time favourite.

Brown the chicken peices in butter / oil combo. Remove to baking pan. Fry shallots in fat until browned. Remove to baking pan. Deglaze cooking pan with a heathly dose of Calvados. Cook until almost evaporated, Scrape into pan. Add some apples that have been peeled, cored, and cut into 6ths. Cook in oven until done. When done, remove chicken to platter. Add a bit of heavy cream, and scrape up all the good stuff!
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

Pollo Borracho

One of my all-time favorites. Pollo Borracho Recipe: Recipes: Food Network

What's not to like about an easy dish of chicken, olives and tequila?

Boneless & skinless thighs, battered and fried to golden brown and smothered in cream gravy with mashed potatoes and peas.

Runner up: Boneless and skinless chicken breast pounded to 1/4” thickness, cut into squares or “patties”, batter, fried and made into mini-sandwiches on brown and serve rolls with lettuce tomato and pickle. Kind of like a Krystal chick if you would.

My all-time favorite has to be fried chicken. Hot or cold. Yum, yum, yummers!

Then, of course, there's always good old beer butt chicken. This, too, is good hot or cold.
