How many times do you take chicken out for dinner; then not know what to make with it when you get home? Here are 60 Easy Chicken Recipes to help you out.

I can’t believe summer is almost over and the kids are heading back to school. It flew by didn’t it? My youngest starts middle school next week and my oldest just started her first year of college. Boy do I feel old!  Since our daughter is living off campus in an apartment, she has to plan and cook meals for herself.  Her and her roommates have really been utilizing their inside portable grill to make a lot of grilled chicken and salad, but as you all know that can get old REALLY fast!

So since September is National Chicken Month, I’ve compiled a list of 60 Easy Chicken Recipes that you can make at home. They say variety is the spice of life right?! Hopefully this will give my daughter and her friends a little more inspiration as they’re planning their meals; as well as all of you who tend to eat a lot of chicken on a weekly basis like we do.

To make it easier to find the recipes below, I’ve separated them into the following categories:

  • Appetizers
  • Soup, Salads & Sandwiches
  • Baked, Roasted or Fried
  • It’s All in the Sauce–Chicken dishes that have some sort of sauce
  • Grillin’ It
  • One Pot Meals
  • Chicken with Pasta

Here are 60 Easy Chicken Recipes. Click on the title of the recipe to be taken to the original post.
