What parent is not in a constant search for Easy Chicken Meals?! Everyone loves chicken – it is delicious, versatile and economical. But when you make the same chicken recipes again and again, it can also be so boring. We are banning boring chicken for National Chicken Month. Here are new ways to make an easy chicken dinner that will have everyone at the table asking for seconds.
In Need of Quick Chicken Dinners
The whole idea of chicken dinner changed forever at our house when we discovered the magic of sheet pan suppers. Have you heard that term? It is where you cook the whole dinner on one sheet pan. I love it as the head chef at my house because it means clean up is really quick and easy.
When I first created the recipe for Warm Spiced Roast Chicken Over Sweet Potatoes, it was to try this idea – but also to introduce my kids to the taste of curry without it being so over the top that it turned them off. They LOVED this curried chicken dinner, all 3 of them! When they all agree on dinner being a win at the same time, it very quickly becomes a recipe we come back to again and again.
Apparently you guys agree about how awesome this recipe tastes because it is one of the highest pinned and highest traffic recipes on Whole Food | Real Families. Thank you for that! But we all need a bevy of easy chicken meals in our back pocket, considering how often chicken is on the menu! So I gathered my closest friends and we came up with these favorites from the best bloggers around the internet.
