Chicken dinners are usually my go-to recipes for dinner. These 19+ Best Healthy Chicken Dinner Recipes are perfect for weeknight dinners and special occasions. They are easy to make, super delicious, and there’s a ton of variety.
How many times a week do you have chicken for dinner? Chicken is my go-to protein for most healthy dinner recipes. I have it 2-3 times a week. Without a plan though, my recipes get boring. When I get bored, GrubHub seems to know and sends a perfectly timed email suggesting delivery.
However, the Best Healthy Chicken Dinner Recipes is an amazing list of recipes that you need in your back pocket. Seriously, there are SO many ideas on this list. I don’t think I would or could ever get bored. It would take me several months to get through this list and there isn’t one recipe on it that I would want to skip. AND, when I get through the list, I can do another round and still only have had each recipe twice in the span of several months. Basically, this list solves all of my dinner problems and probably solves some of yours too! Just wait for GrubHub’s stock to plummet. Kidding (But, not really. Ha!).
These recipes also really span the spectrum of healthy chicken dinner recipes. There are paleo, Whole30, keto, low-carb, anti-inflammatory recipes and so much more. They are full of flavor, nutritious, and healthy. You’ll be thankful you saved this list!
