So, go ahead and leave the boring chicken behind and give some of these recipes a try.
Sun Dried Tomato and Basil Stuffed Chicken

Chicken Power Bowls with Crispy Baked Garbanzo Beans
This is a take on Panera’s Power Bowls. They’re full of protein as they contain crispy baked garbanzo beans, hard-boiled egg, sliced sautéed chicken breast, salty pistachios, and tangy goat cheese. You’ll definitely feel full after eating this flavorful combination.
Creamy Chicken and Herb Skillet
This recipe is actually taking the Internet by storm, especially Pinterest. This is because it only takes 15 minutes to prepare and it tastes absolutely delicious, too.
Leek and Mushroom Chicken Skillet
Leeks and mushrooms are inexpensive items that you can easily throw into almost any dish. This one is both quick to make and delicious to eat. When making this you can even skip the flour coating, and use basil instead of tarragon, it will still taste great nonetheless.
Roasted Garlic Chicken Skillet
Plain chicken breasts don’t have much flavor until you impart some pan-roasted garlic cloves into the skillet with them, then they develop a really deep flavor. Pair the chicken with some homemade mashed potatoes and you’ll have a great dinner that’s easy to make.

Chicken with Cherry Wine Pan Sauce
This recipe is a little more difficult to prepare than the others on the list. However, once it’s made, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how delicious it is. You don’t even need to pit the fresh cherries. In fact, you can even use frozen pitted sweet cherries.
Maple Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad
Add some maple pecan breading to any plain old chicken breasts to create something really tasty. It’s very similar to one of TGI Friday’s “old” recipes. The crunch of pecans coupled with the slightly sweet taste of maple syrup in the crust makes this healthy chicken salad taste great.
