Menu Plans: Chicken Breast Recipes

Thursday, 11/6

Make an easy dinner for your family with these chicken breast recipes!

We pretty much always have chicken breasts stocked up in our freezer. It’s an easy protein to prepare and it’s really versatile. You can slow cook chicken to make yummy soups, saute it for a quick stir-fry, or roast it with veggies for a hearty meal. Really, the possibilities are endless with chicken.

To save the most money on your chicken breasts, try to find places that allow you to buy meat in bulk or call a nearby processing plant. For more information, you can check out my post on how to save on meat.

    Well Chicken stir fry is my all time favorite recipe.I made this for supper tonight. It was good but did not have much flavor. I ended up adding more sauce, and some olive oil and some chili flakes and it was better.
