How many chicken recipes have you cooked or eaten throughout your life? Probably too many to count, right? As a girl born and raised in China, we tried to make the most of every part of the chicken, which leads to dozens of different ways to cook and serve it. Don't get me wrong, I’m into chicken and avoiding food waste, but we don't have to be too extreme. Chickens are one of, if not the most, versatile meat in the world. Almost 50 billion chickens are consumed each year, but we can hardly begin to put a number on the many chicken dishes from countries around because nearly every cuisine features this tasty, nutritious, and adaptable ingredient. As home cooks, we’ll always keep creating new chicken dishes because our love for it is just that deep.

Thanks to the mild, savory flavor of its meat, chicken takes well to lots of spices and other flavors imparted in different dishes to reach perfect harmony. From sweet and sour chicken to chicken cacciatore, from chicken-studded casseroles to simple chicken roasts, it’s amazing to see how well chicken fits within so many different cuisines, cooking methods, and other ingredients. But with this wide variety can come a difficult decision: Which ones are truly worth trying?

We’ve selected 22 of our favorites from around the world, so which one will you make first? Let us know in the comments below!
