The Best Ever Chicken Recipes

This collection of best ever chicken recipes is sure to start your new year off on the right foot.

It’s January.  Each year, it seems that something to do with losing weight is one of my new year’s resolutions.  This year is no exception.

When I am trying to lose weight, I always eat a lot of chicken, particularly boneless chicken breasts.  They are low in fat, very tasty and can be made in all sorts of dishes, from casseroles, to stuffed entrees to pizzas.

Collection of the Best Ever Chicken Recipes.

Here is a collection of some of my favorite chicken recipes.  Not all of them are geared to a diet, but most can be made in a more healthy way but keeping the butter and cheese down, and by using skim milk or half and half instead of the cream.  And be sure to check back soon.

I’m determined to lose weight this year, so many of my recipes in the coming weeks will be lightened up versions of not so healthy recipes.

To get to the recipes, you can just click on any of the pictures or links to go to my printable recipes.

Bon Appetit!

Chicken breast stuffed with mushrooms and cheese.

This garlic lemon and mushroom stuffed chicken recipe is not a low fat one, but it is so delicious that I had to add it to my list of favorites.  It is stuffed with both cream cheese and cheddar cheese for a taste explosion.

Hawaiian Chicken and Sartori cheese pizzaThis Hawaiian chicken and Sartori cheese pizza makes me think of summer.  The fresh pineapple is delightful and the pizza has a home made sauce mix as well.  Be sure to go lighter on the cheese if you are on a diet.

Chicken Breasts with Mushroom Cream sauceChicken breasts seem to take to sauces so well. This one uses a cream and mushroom sauce, is delicious and fairly easy to do.  Get the recipe for Easy Chicken Breasts with Mushroom cream sauce here.

Stuffed chicken rolls on a white place with a blue napkin.This recipe for Monterey Jack and spinach stuffed chicken bundles uses reduced fat cheese and cilantro for the stuffing. To reduce the calories a bit more, you could bake it instead of browning it on the stove top.
