Chicken is the most popular meat, and for good reason. It's mild, easy to prepare inexpensive, and can be flavored so many ways. This collection is for chicken made with a sauce. Chicken with sauce is automatically going to be more tender and more flavorful than plain baked, grilled, or poached chicken. And when the recipe has a sauce, all you have to add is some pasta or rice and a vegetable for a complete meal.
You can change these recipes in many ways. If it calls for chicken breasts, substitute thighs and cook a few minutes longer. Or use chicken drumsticks. The chicken with cherry sauce recipe can be made with grapes or raspberries instead. Use your imagination to create your own wonderful recipes - and then write them down so they can become part of your regular rotation.
Chicken with Sauce Recipes
- Crockpot Chicken Supreme
This wonderful and super easy recipe makes a fabulous smooth and creamy sauce to serve with the tender chicken. What more could you want?
- Chicken Paprikash
Paprika, tomato paste, and sour cream are the ingredients in this rich and delicious sauce. Serve with mashed potatoes on a cold night.
- Sweet and Spicy Crockpot Chicken
The combination of sweet and sour sauce with barbecue sauce, onion and garlic creates a fabulous, suave sauce for this tender chicken.
- Slow Cooker Lemon Chicken and Carrots
The slow cooker is, of course, one of the best appliances to make a simple sauce. Lemon juice, lemonade concentrate, and ketchup make chicken thighs super tender and juicy. Yum.
- Chicken Florentine
This super easy six ingredient recipe uses alfredo sauce and frozen spinach to create a creamy sauce for chicken, served over fettuccine.
- Chicken Spaghetti
Another five ingredient recipe! I think that cooking the chicken directly in spaghetti sauce makes the most tender and moist result ever. You can serve this over cooked rice if you'd like.
- Lemon Chicken Scalloppini
Veal is usually cooked this way, but chicken thighs make an inexpensive and delicious substitute. Use 2/3 cup chicken broth if you don't want to use (or don't have) white wine.
- Creamy Italian Chicken
This is one of my favorite chicken recipes. I sometimes add baby carrots to the crockpot, but you can make it with just chicken.
- Chicken Scampi
What could be better than Shrimp Scampi? Chicken Scampi! It's less expensive and just as delicious.
