The Chicken Lady & Grill Mistress Join Forces

Though she was at first reluctant to take on the title, the Chicken Lady (aka Stacie) has joined forces with the Grill Mistress (aka Meghan), and together they have revealed the do’s and don’ts of grilling chicken.

If you want the low down on burgers, dogs, and steak, we’ve got you covered in our Grilling 101 episode. But we know how much you love chicken — and so do we. That’s why we took an entire episode to dig into everything from the best cuts to buy for grilling to the merits of marinading, the many reasons why spatchcocking is a must to the truth about beer can chicken.

We — ahem, the dynamic duo — get into it all, in the name of a tastier summer.

Here are all the recipes and ideas from this week’s convo:


Stacie’s latest book, Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner: 50 Winning Ways to Cook It Up! is packed with all the modern, vibrant chicken recipes you need to solve dinner using everyone’s favorite protein. 

Say goodbye to bland chicken with this practical handbook of go-to chicken dinner recipes. From Filipino-Style Chicken Adobo made in an Instant Pot to a weeknight version of Chicken Saltimbocca, and kid-approved Chicken Parmesan Meatballs to Pineapple Chicken Salad with Green Beans and Toasted Coconut, this book will help you roast, grill, slow cook, pressure cook, braise, and sheet pan your way to dinner deliciousness.

Plus, it’s chock full of tips on everything from choosing quality chicken at the best price, to decoding confusing labels and carving chicken like the kitchen boss you are.
