When it comes to cooking chicken, I’m a big fan of using a slow cooker. It makes cleanup so much easier and leaves you with more time for other things. But if you’re looking for something quick and easy for dinner tonight, then this list has got you covered!
20-Minute Creamy Tomato Pasta with Chicken & Spinach
- Ingredients: 4 ounces of dry pasta, such as rotini or penne
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Salt and pepper to taste (about 1/2 teaspoon each) 2 cups chicken broth 1 can (15 ounces) diced tomatoes in juice 4 cups baby spinach leaves.
Easy Chicken Stir-Fry
- 1 pound chicken breasts
- 2 bell peppers (any color), cut into small pieces
- 1 onion, chopped
- 4 cups broccoli florets or cauliflower florets

Easy Chicken Fajitas
- What is a fajita?
A fajita is a combination of chicken and vegetables that are cooked on an open, flat-top grill. The shape of the cut pieces makes them look like they’re dancing around the pan. The name comes from Mexico, where the dish was first created.
- How to make Chicken Fajitas:
Fry your chicken breasts in oil (or use rotisserie chicken) until golden brown all over; remove from pan and set aside on paper towels to drain off excess fat, then chop into bite-sized pieces or shred with two forks if you prefer something more uniform in size.* Season both sides with salt and pepper—you can also add chili powder or cayenne pepper if desired!
When you are cutting your veggies, you want to make sure they are bite-sized pieces or slices so that they cook faster. That is why you will want to chop them up. They should be about the same size as the chicken. The reason you are doing this is to make sure they are not mushy. The veggies should have some texture to them.
To prepare your veggies, cut them into bite-sized pieces, remove the stem ends of your onions and cut the bottoms out of the bell peppers. Cut the broccoli into bite-sized pieces.
Next, heat a wok or nonstick skillet (with a lid) on high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of oil and heat until the oil begins to smoke. Add your vegetables and season them with salt and pepper to taste. Toss your vegetables until they begin to brown (you may have to shake the pan several times to prevent burning).
Add your garlic and stir-fry it for 30 seconds to release the flavor. Then, add your chicken and mix together well. Cook for 3-minute.
Place a lid on the pan and reduce the heat to medium-high. Cook your chicken mixture for another 3 minutes, or until all of the juices have evaporated.
Mediterranean Baked Chicken Foil Packets
- Preheat the oven to 425°F.
- Coat each chicken breast with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
- Place the seasoned chicken breasts on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake until cooked through, about 15 minutes per side. Allow cooling while preparing the vegetables and sauce below.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat until shimmering hot but not smoking; add zucchini slices and cook until soft, about 3 minutes per side (add more oil if needed). Set aside on paper towels for later use in creating your “pizza”-style dish!
Next up: saute garlic cloves in butter until golden brown yet still soft—about 2 minutes total cooking time (1 minute per clove). Add diced tomatoes along with fresh basil leaves; reduce heat slightly if necessary so that everything doesn’t burn before you’re ready to serve it up as an appetizer or meal starter!
Easy Grilled Chicken Breasts
This recipe is really easy and tasty, which is why it’s a great choice for beginners. You can use chicken breasts or leg quarters, but boneless, skinless breasts are the most popular type of chicken to grill.
You will need an outdoor grill pan or cast iron skillet to make this recipe work. If you don’t have either one on hand, don’t worry! Just use any kind of pan that can withstand high heat without cracking or breaking—and if you’re using a pan like this one (which has been proven to last up to 10 years), then all will be well in your kitchen world!
Prepare your marinade by combining 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil with 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard; then add salt & pepper until desired flavor profile is reached (we used about 1 tsp each). Place sliced peppers inside their skins; slice onions into thin rings; chop fresh herbs such as rosemary sprigs & thyme leaves. Add both ingredients along with whatever else sounds good at this time!
Easy Chinese Chicken Salad
This salad is easy to make and tastes great. The chicken is marinated in a combination of soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and garlic powder. Then it’s grilled so that the outside gets nice and crispy while keeping the inside juicy. You can serve this over any type of lettuce in your favorite style—I like romaine or iceberg but radicchio would also be delicious!
If you’re looking for an alternative way to serve chicken at home without having too much cleanup after dinner (and saving money), try making this Chinese Chicken Salad!

The best part of this recipe is that there aren’t a lot of ingredients, which means that it’s healthy as well.
