5 Exciting Chicken Recipes

Chicken is a staple meat in most households, but let’s face it – cooking with chicken can be very vanilla. Fortunately, chicken is a very versatile meat and with a little creativity one can create exciting chicken dishes. We’ve explored the world of chicken recipes to bring you five inspirational chicken dishes!

Grilled Chimichurri Chicken Skewers

This Argentinian inspired dish is gluten free and Paleo compatible. Pairing chimichurri sauce with chicken and vegetables is a bit off-beat as it is usually reserved for red meats.

even be served on nachos.

Indian Chicken Biryani

Chicken Biryani is a famous Indian recipe. This spicy chicken dish delivers a cornucopia of delicious flavors such as coriander, turmeric, cloves, cinnamon, green cardamom and cumin topped off with cashew nuts and saffron.

Spinach Artichoke and Chicken Manicotti

Imagine shredded chicken mixed with an artichoke and spinach dip nestled in a manicotti roll. Now imagine cooking it to perfection in a hearty pasta sauce and dripping melted mozzarella cheese. Now that’s a truly decadent chicken dish for the Holidays.

Chicken Caprese Zoodle Bowls

This fresh take on the popular Italian caprese salad is not only gluten free, but ridiculously easy chicken dish to prepare. The combination of chicken with zucchini, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil, topped with olive oil and balsamic vinegar makes for an interesting side dish for the Holidays.

Saté Turmeric Chicken with creamy peanut sauce

An exciting chicken recipe with an oriental twist that delivers a spiciness that is perfect comfort food for cold weather. The peanut sauce is the star of the show with flavors of fresh ginger, garlic, coconut milk, maple syrup, soy sauce, lime juice, chili, and of course peanuts.
