I always recommend stocking up on chicken breasts when they go on sale, mainly because they have a 6-month shelf life in the freezer. But they also become super versatile for all your recipes – from soups to pastas to kid friendly chicken tenders, you’ll always find a use for them!

    There are a lot of great ideas here, and I have an annoying surplus of chicken breasts on hand. Needless to say, I will be using at least of your very promising looking/sounding recipes. Thanks! 😀

  2. Thanks SO much for these, Chungah! I’m going to make all of them, starting from the top, over the next couple of weeks. I love chicken but find that so many of the recipes here are for thighs — which I dislike intensely because I find them so horribly greasy. My partner doesn’t care one way or the other so I usually substitute breast for thighs in those recipes, but while they’re OK, they often lack the depth of flavour I know the original thighs have. So these recipes are very welcome.

  3. Thank you so much for giving us such delicious recipes.

  4. I made the Asian Lemon Chicken tenders last night and I truly believe I knocked it out of the park. My husband is more finicky that a seven year old and I love to cook. Now there’s a combination just itchin’ for a fight. I’m happy to say that he absolutely loved these chicken tenders and would like me to make them on a regular basis. They really are delicious and I’d just like to thank you for the recipe. Next up….the Chicken Lazone. That looks like another winner to me and I’m looking forward to trying it!

  5. Made the honey garlic chicken and it was so good!! Left out the broccoli as we had grilled veggies.  The honey, garlic, oil mixture was really tasty and coated the potatoes well!! This is a keeper, and good to serve for company!

  6. Have made these several times and the are awesome!

  7. Is it okay to use yellow mustard instead of dijon? Will it make cooking time/temperature different?

  8. All of these look amazing! Just pinned about half of the recipe pages! Thanks for sharing!

  9. Mmm, I just love your chicken recipes! I made the One Pan Honey Garlic Chicken and Veggies a couple weeks ago and it was so good. Can’t wait to try more of these!

  10. So many good options here, thanks for posting.  I’m new to your site and finding lots of good stuff.  Cheers….

  11. I have made quite a few of your recipes and pinned a lot of them.  They are all mostly easy, and I just want to thank you, and tell you to keep ‘Em coming!

  12. Today I made the chicken Lazone. I made it with no salt as my husband can’t consume sodium. I can tell you that it was sooooo delicious that immediately we said. We will adopt this dish !! I served it with rice noodles and the garlic/cream sauce you suggested. Now, we will try one and each of the chicken dishes you have in this list. 
    Thank you very much for given us such delicious and easy chicken dishes.

    • If you don’t mind me asking – how do you make up for no salt in the food? Most of the flavors won’t come thru, right?

      • The longer you go without sodium, the more you can taste your food. It does suck at first, because that’s what you are used to. It does not suck after a while, and then you get used to not having any salt on your food.

        • I just wanted to reply to say that I have not been using salt in any of my recipes for a while and it has not affected me at all. I let people salt their own food and I omit it from the recipe if it is in there. I don’t think it matters to me anymore to be honest I can’t tell. I have been doing it for about a year or so. I do it because I feel like we get enough sodium from the food we eat anyways, and I do not eat hardly any processed foods, but I think we get plenty as it is, and if I do use salt, I use it very scantily.

          • Same here Nicolette. I haven’t salted a recipe for over 10 years. Maybe once a year I will make something I end up salting at the table. My husband and I are both on bp medicine. The only downside is when we eat out, often the food is too salty, therefore, I rarely eat out. Think I outsmarted myself on that one. lol
