30 Delicious Skillet Chicken Recipes To Make On A Weeknight! #chicken #dinner | yummyaddiction.com

Chicken. My most favorite type of meat, hands down. The cheapest, the most accessible, plus – it’s lean! What’s not to like? Igor nods in agreement.

Even with my latest craze for free-range birds, it’s still the cheapest compared with other quality types of meat such as grass-fed beef, antibiotic-free pork, and others.

That’s why the most popular choice for weeknight dinners in our house is usually something with chicken. We are always looking for new recipes. Pinterest, other blogs, magazines, you name it. However, it’s not that easy to make it into our list of potential things to cook on a weeknight, oh no.

The dish has to meet some requirements:

  • It has to be quick and easy to make. Nobody wants to spend all the evening in the kitchen.
  • The ingredients have to be simple and accessible. Truffles? Octopus? Foie gras? Thank you. Maybe next time.
  • As little dishes as possible. Preferably one pot / pan.

Our favorites are skillet chicken recipes. You know, the kind of a recipe where you throw chicken + tons of other ingredients into a skillet and voila! The dinner is ready to serve. Easy? Check. Quick? Check. Empty sink? Check.

The number of different combinations you can make this way is limitless. I think I have over 10 of such recipes on Yummy Addiction alone and every single one of them is awesome. You can browse through the chicken category if you want to check them out.

The list I made for you today includes a few of my recipes + a big selection of gorgeous ideas from other blogs. I have already cooked about a half of these but I’m determined to try them all. I hope you will love this collection as much as I do!

    I love the variety! It may all be chicken, but everything else is so different it’s not repetitive at all! So many flavors, and rice, sweet potatoes, pasta…

    I have to try the enchilada stuffed chicken. That sounds amazing.
