21 Chicken Recipes For Two That Will Satisfy Every Craving! #chicken | yummyaddiction.com

The roundup of easy dinner ideas for two I made in February for Valentine’s Day got really popular on Pinterest. I guess people hate leftovers as much as I do, ha ha! Me and my hubby, we love keeping it interesting and having something new every evening. Of course, the lack of time lately makes it way more difficult but when we can, we do.

The success of the last “for two” post led me to create another one. This time it’s 21 crazy delicious chicken recipes for two! This list is packed with everything from pasta to skewers, pizza, chicken skillets, lasagna, and more! Seriously, guys, this collection is so all-rounded. I tried to keep it interesting and include as much different awesome ideas as I could find.

Why chicken? It’s cheap, it’s accessible, it’s lean, it’s a type of meat almost everyone loves. I met people who hate pork or don’t eat it for religious reasons (I’m not a fan either), people who can’t force themselves to eat lamb, people who find rabbits too cute to eat (I’m one of them) BUT I have yet to meet a person who doesn’t like chicken.

In my family, chicken and turkey are the most popular types of meat. Even though we have our differences with Igor, chicken is something we always agree on when choosing ingredients for dinner. That’s why I have over 60 chicken recipes on the blog!

To conclude: if you usually cook for you and your significant other or a friend, if you are not too keen on leftovers, and if you love chicken – this list is for you!
