50 Simple Chicken Recipes That Will Make You Drool! These look SO delicious. Everything from healthy to cheesy, and all equally awesome! Not only are they great for guests, but also easy weeknight meals!

We love chicken! We eat chicken A LOT and so we’re always looking for new, delicious chicken recipes because let’s be real-chicken can get boring quickly if you don’t mix it up a bit!

I thought today I would share with you some AWESOME chicken recipes! Some we have tried, some are on my menu plan to try so if you’ve had any of these I would love to hear your thoughts (or modifications). We love chicken, but we also love variety so I thought this would be a fun way to try some new recipes!

If you’re thinking of trying out some (or all??) of these recipes, you’re gonna need some chicken at a great price. Zaycon Fresh has some of the most delicious chicken and because it’s direct from the farm it is some of the BEST chicken prices I have ever seen. Once you have your fridge or freezer stocked, get ready to rock this list of recipes. You could eat chicken every day for almost 2 months without a repeat. But don’t do that, because then you’ll never want to eat chicken again…

Anyway, bring on the deliciousness!

A couple of years ago, we started ordering chicken in bulk from Zaycon Fresh. You get 40lbs of chicken at a time, so for just the two of us that meant chicken for like a year! You can split the order with friends or family but at the time we lived in Oregon where we didn’t have anyone to split with so we just stocked the freezer. Now we don’t have a chest freezer in our apartment, but we are close to my parents and my brother so we will be able to split the order and everyone gets to enjoy some delicious chicken! (PS: Right now my readers can get 20% off their ENTIRE first order using coupon code PT20 at checkout now through 4/30!)

Thanks for sharing it with the world! I had a Nana too, and have many fond memories with her, so when I saw yours was a recipe from another "Nana" I knew it was going to have to be at the top of my list to try!
