Turkey and dressing is a comfort-food classic, and this recipe makes it easy to enjoy the taste of Thanksgiving during the festive season or at any time of year. This comforting slow cooker dish combines everything in a single pot, making the turkey tender and stuffing rich and delicious.

You would be hard-pressed to find a quick-fix supper easier to prepare than our reader-favorite Lemon-Rosemary Chicken. All you need are 5 ingredients and 10 minutes of prep time to make this citrusy lemon-rosemary chicken for dinner.

A few extra minutes under the broiler means the skin is browned and crispy. Let it rest ten minutes, and this dish is ready to plate, carve, and devour. The hardest part will be waiting.
