BLT Chicken Burgers

Poultry burgers have a reputation for being dry and bland. Not these: Jazzed up with sharp cheddar, parmesan, and garlic ― then topped with crisp bacon, juicy tomatoes, and lettuce ― they're boldness in a bun.

Want moist and succulent grilled chicken with deliciously crispy skin? Try grilling under a brick. (Or, use the modern equivalent: A cast-iron pan.)

"Spatchcocking" a chicken means splitting the bird down the back and flattening it out so it cooks more evenly and quickly (it's also known as butterflying). This version is rubbed with flavorful Dijon mustard and a mixture of dried and fresh herbs.

Cashew Romesco Chicken Thighs

Made with cashews, this romesco, given to us by Josh Drage, chef at the Ranch at Rock Creek in Philipsburg, MT, has a silkier texture and sweeter flavor than the classic sauce made with almonds. He brushes it onto grilled chicken, but it would also be good swirled into a creamy soup.
