I don’t know about you, but my go-to for dinner is pretty much chicken. Chicken all the time. I know my family probably gets sick of the answer to “What’s for dinner?” being “Chicken!” but at least I know I have tons of different kinds of recipes in my arsenal so it doesn’t feel like we’re eating the same thing night after night. Let’s face it, chicken is affordable, it’s healthy (depending on the preparation of course) and it’s easy to prepare. Chicken breasts can take on so many different flavors, and here are some of our family’s favorites! Bonus – most of these take 30 minutes or less, including prep!
