Why Make Chicken for Dinner

Chicken is so easy to find, and quite versatile too. There are a few things we recommend when it comes to cooking with chicken.

  • Chicken Breasts- when you choose boneless, skinless breasts they are a great low fat option! Perfect for salads, grilling, or making skillets.
  • Chicken Thighs- juicier and better choice for slow cooking! Thighs won’t dry out like breasts when cooked for longer times.
  • Whole Chicken- can be a more cost effective choice. Leftovers are perfect in many of the dinner recipes below!
