With the popularity of Chicken - Quick!, I decided to pull together a new list of super quick chicken breast recipes. These recipes are all easy and delicious and don't take much time to prepare. They include some of my favorite ingredients, like honey mustard, curry, puff pastry, and pesto. And since most of these recipes have been highly rated, they are sure to become part of your regular rotation!

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Just five ingredients plus chicken breasts make a delicious and super flavorful baked entree. I love to serve this fabulous recipe with brown rice to soak up the wonderful sauce.

Chicken and Bacon in Puff Pastry

Just six ingredients make an elegant and delicious entree that looks like it came from a fancy restaurant! If your puff pastry is still frozen, thaw it in the microwave according to the package directions and you won't lose any time.

Baked Curried Chicken Breasts

A rich onion, garlic, and curry mixture, thickened with coconut milk, bathes tender and juicy chicken as it bakes. My mouth is watering just thinking about this recipe!

Chicken and Pasta with Lemon Pesto

Adding lemon juice and zest to packaged pesto really adds zing to this easy dish. This recipe is fresh tasting and super quick to make.

Baked Fried Chicken

This wonderful recipe, from my book Everything No Trans Fat Cookbook, yields fabulously juicy chicken with the perfect crust baked in butter. Yum.

Chicken Scampi

I love Shrimp Scampi, but don't make it often for two reasons. My husband doesn't like shrimp and shrimp is expensive! So I invented this flavorful and easy recipe using chicken.

Chicken Risotto

Okay, this recipe takes about an hour, but when I want comfort food, this is a real winner. I've had dinner guests request this one!

Chicken Ravioli Cacciatore

This one-pan meal is super quick to make. Even the pasta cooks right in the skillet with all the other ingredients!

Saucy Chicken
