Boneless Chicken Breast Recipes
Boneless chicken breasts are versatile, flavorful, and low in fat. And you can find chicken breasts in fresh and frozen individual portions, thinly sliced cutlets, and fully cooked casserole and salad-ready strips. It's no wonder they're so popular.
Because they are so lean, chicken breasts can easily become dry if cooked too long. Some slow cooker recipes work well with chicken breasts, but some don't. I frequently use chicken thighs in slow cooker recipes calling for boneless chicken breasts, or a combination of chicken breasts and thighs.
Here are some of the most popular boneless chicken breast recipes, including casserole recipes using chicken breasts, baked chicken breasts, skillet recipes, and more.
