When it comes to weeknight recipes, chicken dinners are about as classic as it gets. Of all the Dinner Meats, chicken is an inexpensive and versatile option, as well as a great source of lean protein. It also cooks relatively quickly. Plus, it’s easy to freeze cooked or raw! And here at STYLECASTER, we’re all about things at the intersection of High Quality and Convenient. That’s why today we’re bringing you easy chicken recipes you can always have in your culinary arsenal for fall 2019.
And speaking of fall, chicken dinners are especially easy to throw together in the colder months. Just add in some pasta, potatoes or vegetables, throw them in the oven or on the stove, and you have yourself a full and satisfying meal. Hell, you could even plop them in a Crock Pot for a super easy slow-cooker chicken dinner (with minimal effort on your part).
