Top 10 Chicken Breast Recipes


I remember a time when boneless, skinless chicken breasts weren't available in the supermarket and we had to skin and bone them ourselves. While that wasn't a daunting task, it took time. Now we can find prepared chicken breasts anywhere. And this inexpensive and delicious meat is so versatile and easy to cook. Just make sure you never buy any boneless, skinless chicken breast halves that are larger than 8 ounces, or you are buying breasts from a stewing hen. They will never get tender with the dry heat methods in this list. These are the best chicken breast recipes, including most of my favorites. And yours too!

1. Crockpot Chicken Supreme

This was one of the first recipes I developed for Busy Cooks, and it's still one of my favorites. The chicken is enveloped in a creamy cheesy sauce and topped with bacon. Yum!

2. Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

I didn't even put this recipe in a collection or article, and it already has three five-star reviews! I developed it for a future article about baking chicken breasts. It's so easy, delicious, and perfect for a family dinner.

I love the combination of meat with fruit, as you know. And apricots with chicken is really delicious. The tender chicken melds with the sweet and tart flavor of apricots, while onion soup mix adds a kick and Russian dressing makes the flavor complex. This combo might sound strange, but it's really good!

8. Sticky Chicken

I love this recipe, and many others do too. It is slightly controversial, although I don't understand why. What's not to like about chicken, potatoes, cheese, and sour cream?
