Are you at a loss on what to make for dinner? These chicken meal recipes are the solution!
20 Best Yummy Chicken Breast Recipes

Chicken is one of the greatest protein sources available. It's delicious, healthful, adaptable, and reasonably priced.

Breasts and thighs are two of the best chicken parts. They are both high in protein and low in fat.

Of course, eating healthy does not have to be tedious. That's why I've compiled a list of 21 chicken breast recipes to help you make the most of this lean cut of meat.

Say goodbye to dry, tasteless chicken dishes. You'll never get bored of chicken again with these dishes!


1. Tomato Basil Baked Chicken

Tomato basil chicken is best described as saucy, creamy, and earthy.

If you're looking to avoid fried foods, this baked meal is ideal!

The tomato basil sauce has a mild flavor that is delightful. You'll need something to soak up this excellent sauce in addition to the chicken.

However, the dish can be served with crusty bread on the side or over a bed of rice.

What I enjoy best about this recipe is how simple it is to adapt. Do you want to spice things up? Simply add some red pepper flakes.

If you want to add a cheesy twist, I recommend shredded mozzarella cheese as a topping!


2. Lemon Chicken Piccata

Chicken piccata is a traditional Mediterranean dish that appears elegant but is surprisingly simple to prepare.

Piccata is a term used in Italian cooking to describe meat that has been sliced, dredged in flour, then browned.

And don't forget about the creamy sauce. It's flavored with butter, capers, lemon juice, and white wine.

Place the sauce and chicken on top of the spaghetti and you're done!


3. Chicken with Mushroom Gravy

Chicken with gravy is undoubtedly the most traditional pairing.

A pan-seared chicken breast swims in a creamy mushroom sauce in this delectable meal.

Interestingly, this recipe proposes using beef broth instead of chicken broth while preparing the gravy because it is tastier.

As a result, the sauce does not overshadow the flavor of the chicken.

Chicken and mushrooms are a classic combination that can be served over rice or mashed potatoes.


4. Creamy Lemon Chicken Breast

The correct combination of cream and lemon will transform simple chicken breasts into a delectable delicacy.

For a blast of umami flavors, add other pantry staples like butter, parmesan, mustard, and garlic.

This recipe yields enough creamy sauce to serve with pasta.

You can't go wrong pairing the chicken with mashed cauliflower for a low-carb supper.


5. Honey Pecan Chicken Breasts

The combination of chicken and honey butter sauce with pecans will become an instant favorite!

I'm certain in this since it'll serenade you with a symphony of buttery, salty, and sweet sensations. That's really enticing, isn't it?

The pecan nuts provide an attractive touch to the dish and an appealing aroma to the kitchen.

Serve this chicken dish over white rice for an authentic southern supper.


6. Black Bean Chicken

This spicy family favorite requires only a few basic ingredients, making it quick and easy to make in your skillet on a weeknight. 

A flavorful sauce made from black beans, corn, and salsa pairs nicely with stir-fried chicken.

The major ingredient in the dish is chicken breasts.

Don't forget to season with cumin, pepper, and chili powder for a spicy bite. Serve over brown or fried rice for a satisfying supper.


7. Cracker Barrel Fried Chicken

What one does not enjoy Cracker Barrel's fried chicken? These bone-in chicken breasts are breaded and fried till golden and crispy. Oh, they're so tempting!

Nothing beats tucking on a delicious piece of fried chicken. The best part is that you can create this copycat dish at home.

Buttermilk is the secret ingredient in this recipe. It brings out the real southern flavor and softens the chicken.


8. Grilled Chicken Breast

The wet spice rub for this grilled chicken is made up of cupboard mainstays like paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and oregano.

The outcome is the most flavorful, juiciest grilled chicken you've ever had. You'll be done in minutes.

This recipe goes well with grilled vegetables and a variety of side salads. A grilled chicken and bacon kale Caesar salad is my favorite combination.


9. Dump and Bake Chicken and Cornbread

According to the recipe title, this is maybe the simplest dish available.

You'll have a lot less cooking time thanks to the dump-and-bake approach!

It's time to get those raw chicken breasts out of the fridge.

Simply immerse the chicken in a condensed soup and chicken broth mixture.

Place in a baking dish between the cornbread stuffing mixture, then bake.

The finished product should be a lightly crisp casserole with tender chicken and a thick, creamy sauce.


10. Apple Cider Thyme Grilled Chicken

If you can't get enough of juicy grilled chicken, this is another must-try recipe.

The apple cider-thyme marinade offers a delicious combination of sweet and tangy aromas with minty undertones.

When served with grilled vegetables or corn, this flavorful dish will be a winner at your next barbeque.


11. Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Pasta

On a busy weekday, you'll want something quick, affordable, and simple to prepare.

This creamy cheese-flavored chicken pasta with slightly sweet sun-dried tomatoes strikes the spot!

This dish requires only one skillet and a 10-minute cooking time.

It's one of the simplest yet most delicious meals you can create. It's also ideal for outdoor dinners and potlucks!

You can use any sort of pasta you choose for the spaghetti. My favorite pastas are spaghetti and penne.


12. Mango Chutney Chicken

Mango chutney is a flavorful Indian relish made from green mangos.

It's great for emphasizing a specific flavor profile in meat recipes.

Tangy and somewhat sweet tastes will dominate the chicken in this recipe. For optimal taste, slather the meat with a good amount of chutney.

This recipe goes well with basmati rice or a cool cucumber salad.


13. Bang Bang Chicken

This dish is wonderful, from the ultra crispy chicken coated in buttermilk and Panko breadcrumbs to the delectable sweet chili mayo! You'll be unable to take your hands off it.

I can't get enough of this explosive dish.

Consider chicken pieces dipped in a spicy buttermilk batter. Dredge them in crisp breadcrumbs and fried till golden brown.

Bang Bang Chicken isn't complete without its honey-infused sweet chili mayo sauce. Are you hungry right now?

I'm confident that this will be the most delicious and crunchy chicken you've ever made.

It got its name from the "bang-bang" sound made by the cleaver as it chopped the chicken into little pieces.


14. Coconut Chicken

These chicken breasts are coated in a cornstarch-egg-shredded-coconut concoction.

The spicy cornstarch mixture and sweetened coconut flakes give this meal its amazing flavors.

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce to amp up the flavor.

Double the dip to get double the goodness. Yum!


15. Sticky Garlic Chicken Bites

These garlic chicken nibbles are ready in 20 minutes and will disappear even faster! They're baked with a sticky, sugary sauce on top.

Because this recipe is so simple to prepare, you might wish to create another batch after the first.

To offset the saltiness, use reduced-sodium soy sauce in the sauce. You don't like spicy food?

Adjust the amount of Sriracha sauce to your liking, or leave it out entirely.


16. Cheesy Chicken Burrito Skillet

This is a one-skillet meal that has everything you love about a chicken burrito but without the bread tortilla.

This dish couldn't be simpler. In a skillet, combine the canned tomatoes, rice, beans, broth, and taco spice.

Add a heaping helping of shredded cheese to make every meal a delicious delight!


17. Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Warm up on cold nights with this delectable chicken pot pie soup.

If chicken pot pie is one of your all-time favorite dinners, you'll love this soup!

This hearty soup is made with chicken, carrots, green beans, and a delicious blend of herbs and seasonings.

It's chunky like the classic chicken pot pie, but in the style of a creamy soup.

Serve with warm garlic biscuits for added flavor!


18. Grilled Chicken Strawberry Pizza

When hosting outdoor summer BBQ parties, consider varying the standard menu of hot dogs, burgers, and grilled meats.

This delectable chicken strawberry pizza is the solution.

Make a pizza crust out of naan or pita bread, then top with the creamy white sauce and toppings.

If you don't like pineapple on pizza, maybe you like strawberries like me!


19. Queso Baked Chicken

This recipe will rekindle your passion for chicken breasts with a delectable queso sauce flavored with southern spices.

As if that weren't enough, you'll need to cover this dish in cheese.

As a result, the Tex-Mex meal is incredibly moist and delicate. Take a nibble, and you'll understand there isn't such a thing as too much cheese!

Serve this chicken bake with Spanish rice, chips, or tortillas for a complete Tex-Mex meal.


20. Angel Hair Chicken Pasta

Let me introduce you to angel hair pasta if you're not familiar with this versatile Italian staple.

Angel hair pasta, often known as capellini, is a thin spaghetti-like noodle. Capellini is frequently served with delicate sauces such as the one in this recipe.

Mushroom soup, white wine, cream cheese, butter, and dry Italian salad dressing are combined in the sauce.

It's not the most visually appealing combination, but the flavor is delicious!

Don't worry, the cooking process is simple. It's easy to make and ready in an hour or less.
