Here's something quick, easy, and versatile for you. This Bon Appétit recipe for the crispiest cast-iron chicken thighs has become one of my go-to's for easy weeknight cooking. Store extra chicken thighs in your freezer, and you're already halfway to a meal that feels elevated and special.
The advantage of this vegan menu for a beach picnic is you don't have to fear mayo or meat spoilage in the heat. Beach eating aside, both of these recipes are great to make at the beginning of the week and reinvent for different meals.
