Boldly flavored with fresh ginger, lime, chili pepper, fish sauce and brown sugar, this dish is wildly addictive. In fact, whenever I make it for dinner, I have to force myself to put the leftovers in the fridge before starting the dishes, otherwise I'll finish them off while no one is watching. GET THE RECIPE

This recipe -- adapted from the blog and book, Savory Sweet Life by Alice Currah -- is a crowd-pleaser for all ages. It's the sauce that makes it so good. If you're anything like me, you'll be tempted to forget the chicken entirely and just have the sauce as a soup. GET THE RECIPE

This is my take on Pollo a la Brasa, the delicious spit-roasted chicken made popular by so many Peruvian restaurants. The chicken is first marinated in olive oil, lime juice, garlic and spices, and then oven-roasted until tender, juicy and crisp-skinned. The green sauce, which gets it's color from cilantro and jalapeno peppers, is spicy, creamy and downright addictive. GET THE RECIPE

In this recipe, chicken thighs are marinated in a tangy blend of Greek yogurt, lemon and spices, then grilled on skewers until golden brown. Everyone seems to love it -- in fact, the first time I made it for a crowd, I actually ran out of food. Lesson learned: make extra! GET THE RECIPE
