What To Make With Chicken Breast: 136 Best Meal Ideas

Don’t know what to make with chicken breast?

This list of 136 recipes will provide you with loads of options to choose from–featuring soups, casseroles, salads, and one-pan meals!

A common misconception about chicken breast is that it’s the most unappealing part of the chicken.

Sure, it’s the least fatty of all the parts of the chicken, but it’s high in protein and is very meaty.

It’s also very easy to dry it out, so some care should be practiced when cooking with it.

With that said; however, you’ll find that once you’ve mastered the art of cooking chicken breasts, you can use it for almost anything–sandwiches, stews, skewers, and so much more.

Some of the easiest to make here include Pesto Chicken Bruschetta Bake and Chicken Paprikash.

If you’re up for a challenge, you should try recipe #32.

136. Chicken Schnitzel

Chicken Schnitzel is popular in Central Europe, but you don’t have to be in Europe to appreciate the crunchy and juicy texture of the dish.

If you want your chicken schnitzel to be crispy, make sure that your oil is hot enough before you dip them inside.
