It is a busy time of year, but one that is perfect for cooking. Colder weather, combined with holiday entertaining, lure many back to the kitchen. If you are short on time but need a tasty, healthful, and economical recipe, chicken is the solution.

 From the National Chicken Council, here are  four new cold-weather chicken recipes that will warm-up family and guests alike: Chicken with Grapes and Rosemary, a lovely dish that shines with the colors of the season;  Green Chicken Curry made with chunked, boneless skinless thigh meat, providing a spicy warmth on a cold winter night; Southern-Style Chicken Stew, a hearty one-dish meal, made with chunks of boneless, skinless chicken breast meat; and a crisp Chicken-Citrus Salad. 

All are available, along with high-resolution photos, at

The recipes are all made with a minimum number of ingredients that can be obtained during a quick trip to the grocery store, and should take 30 minutes or less, from preparation to serving.
