Chicken is the number 1 protein purchased in the world, so an affordable chicken recipe is probably on your meal plan each week. We compiled an extensive list of chicken dinners that are cheap to make, but are hearty enough to fill everyone’s bellies.
The recipes on this list use all kids of chicken sections that we love. We’ve talked about how to stretch chicken breasts on the blog, but these recipes remind us that there are so many different things we can do with this frugal protein.
From chicken casserole recipes, KETO chicken dinners, easy Instant Pot chicken dinner ideas, and more, we’ve got you covered.
How To Use This Chicken Recipes List
Here’s my big tip for this list: plug in the recipes for the whole year. Yes, you can make a year long meal plan just from this list.
Let’s say you usually make 2 chicken recipes per week. That gives you 104 chicken dinners per year to fill into your meal plan. Use this list to cut the stress of filling in those days, and not knowing what to make.
Easy Recipes for Dietary Restrictions
If you are on special dietary restrictions, like a gluten free or KETO diet, be sure to read the title of each recipe. The titles will not only tell you if the recipe will fit in your diet, but if it uses items that you already have in the fridge or pantry.
