10 Chicken Dinner Ideas That Are Totally Not Boring

Spectacular chicken dinner ideas seem few and far between. It’s far too easy to resort to the typical and boring poultry dinners when you just don’t know how to get creative at mealtime. Instead of doing that, enjoy this list of chicken dinners that will put bland oven-baked chicken breast to shame.

1. Buffalo Dip Stuffed Chicken

Think of this recipe as everything that makes a perfect chicken wing all in one bite. This delicious recipe calls for just eight ingredients, and chances are you already have all of them on hand. This is fairly simple to prepare as it will be made in the oven where you will first bake the chicken and then broil it. It will take 10 minutes to prepare, and your tummy will be satisfied less than an hour later.

2. Chicken Spinach Artichoke Lasagna

How amazing is it that someone thought to combine chicken, spinach artichoke dip, and lasagna? I don’t know about you, but that sounds like the perfect combination to me. This recipe may require some shopping unless you have lasagna noodles, artichoke hearts, and ricotta on hand. You will basically be making this unique lasagna the same way you would make the classic dish. It will take you about 20 minutes to prepare and the final masterpiece will be done in 1 hour and 15 minutes.

3. Chicken With Peaches And Ginger

This chicken dinner idea is more on the healthy side. Peaches aren’t something I would have ever thought to pair with chicken, but now that it has been brought to my attention, it sounds absolutely amazing! The other great thing about this meal is that it does not take long to make at all. Everything gets cooked in the same skillet except for the couscous.

Cook the chicken for 5 minutes. Flip it over to cook the other side, and add the peaches, white wine, and some of the seasonings while it cooks. Prepare the couscous in the meantime. When everything is done cooking, you will lay it over the couscous. Enjoy!

4. Savory Mustard Chicken And Stuffing Waffles

If you were wondering how chicken and waffles could possibly get any better, well, here you go! This delicious dinner idea suggests you make the waffles from scratch, but if you wanted to use frozen waffles, I’m sure that would suffice if you wanted one less step. Otherwise, pour the waffle mixture into your waffle maker as you are frying your chicken in a skillet. They also offer an alternative way of cooking the chicken by means of an air fryer instead of a skillet.

5. Chicken Mole Tacos

Who doesn’t love tacos? Anyone? I didn’t think so. This totally not boring meal combines two Mexican dishes in one. Season the chicken with the cocoa powder, ancho, cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Then roast it in the oven for about 12 minutes.

While you wait, you can prepare the veggies with the lime juice and some salt and pepper. You will be enjoying the sweetest taco Tuesday in no time. Don’t forget to top your tacos with yogurt as the recipe suggests.

6. Korean Fried Chicken

I am pretty sure it is impossible for fried chicken to be boring. However, I’m willing to try any spin on this classic. This recipe does call for a chili paste as part of the sauce, so just a heads up if spicy isn’t your thing. If it is your thing, the website suggests either coating the chicken in the sauce or using it for dipping.

7. Fried Chicken Sandwich With Tangy Slaw

You can’t go wrong with a chicken sandwich. The Chick-fil-A versus Popeyes competition should clue you in on this truth. Let everyone else hype up fast food chicken sandwiches while you sink your teeth into this next level version of an otherwise basic (but tasty) sandwich.

While you fry the chicken, you can be preparing the slaw. Other things that are suggested to add to this sandwich are bacon, cheese, and pickles. Add whatever else your little heart desires. Feel free to serve up a side of fries or chips to go with it.

8. Chopped Thai Chicken Salad

This one is for all my salad lovers out there. Cabbage, carrots, peanuts, onions, and peppers with the option of either papaya or mango make up this flavorful chicken dinner idea.

9. Charred Asparagus Cream Pasta With Blackened Lemon Chicken

Here is a healthy and easy chicken dinner to whip up. If chicken had a best friend, I think pasta would be just that. They pair so well together. This chicken and pasta combination will surely put the rest to shame with its inclusion of goat cheese and pesto. Yum!

You will be tossing all the seasonings with the chicken first. Then, in your blender, you will combine all the ingredients for the pesto sauce. Cook the chicken and asparagus in a skillet while you boil the pasta. Finally, combine the rest of the ingredients, the chicken, and the asparagus in the pot with the pasta.

10. Chicken Pillows

Don’t sleep on this tasty chicken recipe. It calls for crescent rolls, cream cheese, chicken soup, and sour cream for some of the ingredients. The pillow part comes in to play with the stuffing of the crescent rolls with the chicken mixture. Sounds totally dreamy, right?

The chicken pillow will be dipped into a blended egg. Then you will roll it in butter with crackers or bread crumbs. Make as many pillows as you would like. They will then bake in the oven for about 20 minutes. While they are baking, prepare the gravy sauce according to the steps.
