17 Quick & Easy Chicken Breast Recipes You Have To Try

alt="boneless chicken breast recipes"

Chicken breast recipes are the cornerstones of most healthy diet plans. As one of the leanest and healthiest protein sources available, they’re also one of the simplest ways to maintain fat loss.

Chicken breasts can easily be baked or grilled; you can throw them in a wrap; add them to a salad to make it more filling, or you can combine them with some fat and grains for a more balanced plate. All of these options will give you a filling, low-calorie meal.

The problem everyone has, however, is that without flavorful sauces or the right spice blends, chicken breasts are almost impossible to eat. This is where most chicken recipes go off the rails – calorically speaking – and coming up with these on the fly can generate mixed results.

Here we’ve scoured some of our favorite blogs for some of the best chicken breast recipes available.

These 17 recipes are not only quick and easy, they care super creative ways to spice up those frighteningly boring fillets into something much more exciting.
