Three Easy Chicken Recipes

Quick and healthy chicken recipes are the perfect dinner solution for busy weeknights

Chicken breasts and thighs are ideal for weeknight meals because they are inexpensive, readily available, and cook quickly. We usually make chicken for dinner at our house at least once a week, so it's easy to get in a rut with the eating the same dish time after time. One way I switch things up is by using different cuts of chicken - sometimes we have boneless skinless breasts, sometimes we use chicken thighs, and sometimes we keep the bone in. It's an easy way to add variety to your meals and also helps to take advantage of whatever sales your butcher has on chicken at that time. And since chicken isn't the most flavorful meat on its own, I usually try to pair it with a quick sauce or topping to add more flavor. These chicken recipes are some of my favorite weeknight meals from my recipe archive and require no planning ahead. Just pick up the ingredients on your way home from work and you can have a healthy, delicious dinner on the table in well under an hour. Winner winner, chicken dinner.

Tip: Cook double the amount of chicken and repurpose the leftovers into enchiladas or fried rice the next night.
