You’ve probably heard one of your friends say that something “tastes like chicken” before, haven’t you? Though there are plenty of theories as to why people think chicken tastes like everything, the truth is that chicken is an ingredient which lends itself well to many different recipes. Because of it’s mild flavor and pleasant texture, different seasonings can bring out entirely different dimensions of taste and flavor. And as an added bonus? Chicken can be really cheap to cook with as well.
That’s why we’ve took it upon ourselves to collect some of the finest chicken recipes out there and compile them into one killer list for your cooking pleasure. Today, we’re running down the top 10 chicken-based recipes we’ve found. Give these dishes a try and they’re sure to make it into your nightly rotation. So let’s get started!
When they’re ready on all sides, place them in your baking dish and arrange your apple quarters on top. In the same skillet, heat more oil and sauté onions. Add garlic and cook for another two minutes. Stir in your apple cider, apple cider vinegar, ginger and thyme as well. Season it with salt and pepper before bringing it to a gentle boil and adding maple syrup. Keep stirring until the sauce thickens and pour it over your chicken, covering it with aluminum foil.
Finally, pop the dish in the oven for 15 minutes. Take it out after that time, pop the foil off and spoon some more sauce back on top of the chicken. Bake for another 15 minutes and when it’s all done, sprinkle the top with fresh thyme!
Get out another bowl and mix together your breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese. When the chicken is ready, dredge it through the breadcrumb mix until it’s all fully coated. After that, place them on your baking sheet and spray the tops with oil. Add your chopped baby potatoes and mix together butter, garlic and salt in a small bowl. Pour half of it over the potatoes and pop the whole thing in the oven for 15 minutes.
Take it out and flip the chicken over after the time’s up, moving the potatoes to one side of the tray. Add your green beans to the other side and pour the rest of the butter over them. Throw the tray back in the oven to broil for 10 minutes before serving! Top everything with fresh parsley.
Set those veggies aside and melt butter in the same pan before adding rice in. Keep stirring it until it gets gently toasted before adding your veggies and chicken back in. Turn your heat down to medium and add the white wine in, cooking until it all evaporates—keep stirring this entire time! Keep adding chicken stock every time your spoon can make a track through the rice. When it’s all evaporated, taste the rice and make sure it’s tender. When it’s the right consistency, serve everything and top it all off with parmesan cheese, salt and pepper!
In a side bowl, throw your bread cubes together and drizzle them with melted butter. Spread those bread cubes over the chicken and top everything with shredded cheddar cheese. When everything is set, throw the dish in the oven and let it cook for 30 to 35 minutes. Let it cool for five minutes before eating.
Set it all aside when it’s done and fill a pot with water. Boil your pasta according to the instructions on the package, taking them out when they’re al dente. Drain the pasta and put it in a bowl, tossing it with ranch dressing. With everything ready, get out a 9×9-inch baking dish, grease it and fill it with your ranch pasta. Add your chicken and half of your cooked bacon with all your Alfredo sauce. Toss it to combine before sprinkling the top with cheese. Add the rest of the bacon and let it cook for 12 to 15 minutes.
