Chicken is always a winner for dinner! Boneless skinless chicken breasts are one of the most versatile cuts of meat to work with in recipes. The white meat, when cooked right, makes a tender and juicy main dish. Leftovers are delicious cut up in salads and soups.

Baked Chicken Breast Recipes

Baked chicken doesn’t have to be boring! In fact, if you do it right, baked chicken can be just a juicy and flavorful as fried chicken but healthier. Plus, baking chicken in the oven can be one of the easiest and quickest ways to cook chicken. Instead of just baking chicken plain, it is amazing what some butter, salt, pepper, spice, or lemon juice can do to add a richer flavor. Try pairing some vegetables along side your chicken as it bakes like onions, potatoes, mushrooms, peppers, cauliflower, or corn. Next time you are in a pinch for a quick dinner, give one of these a taste!

Chicken Skillet and Pan Cooked Chicken Recipes

Probably the quickest way to cook chicken is by pan frying it in a skillet. You can cut the chicken breast up into pieces like our Panda Express Mushroom Chicken recipe of you can keep it whole like our popular Outback Steakhouse Alice Springs Chicken Copycat recipe.

Air Fryer Chicken

We recently got an Air Fryer and we are obsessed! I love that you can cook things so quickly and so evenly! Chicken is especially good in the air fryer. It cooks evenly and doesn’t get dried out. Check out our list of Air Fryer recipes, or try one of our favorites. We love these Air Fryer French Fries and Air Fryer Donuts

Quick and Slow Chicken Breast Recipes

I love Crock Pot and Instant Pot recipes. I also love that they can easily be interchanged depending on how much time you have. You can make a Crock Pot recipe into an Instant Pot recipe and vice versa. Chicken breasts in the Instant Pot typically take about 20 minutes while in the slow cooker they take 2-4 hours on high and 6-8 hours on low. Switch it up and see what works best for you!
