We eat a lot of chicken in our house especially right now when the cost of chicken is so substantially less than beef and other meats. It can get a little boring though so we like to have a lot of recipes on hand to change it up often. We’re busy all the time though so those recipes usually need to be quick and easy to make. Here are some of our favorite quick easy chicken recipes that don’t skimp on the flavor. Check just on the link to go to the blog for the full recipe.
