We couldn’t be more excited that summer is just around the corner! And with summer comes plenty of fun! From cookouts, pool days, beach days, and more, there’s always something happening during these warm, sunny months. The only thing that makes summertime better is great food! So here are some delicious summer chicken recipes to look forward to.
1. Sticky Pineapple Chicken
Is there anything better than the combo of sweet and savory? I think not! This is one of the best summer chicken recipes because it uses fresh, sweet fruit to create a glaze that will have your chicken moist and delicious. This recipe is great to cook up for summer get-togethers because it’s a meal everyone is bound to love!
2. California Avocado Chicken
Talk about a killer combo! Who doesn’t love throwing some creamy avocado on everything they eat? This recipe is easy to make, healthy, and super delicious. What more could you ask for when you’re trying to cook up a meal this summer? Throw your chicken on the grill, top with cheese if you’d like, and serve it up with a big salad or your favorite veggies for the perfect summer meal.
3. Lemon Pepper Chicken
This is probably one of the most classic summer chicken recipes you could make, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not delicious! There’s nothing more refreshing than the fresh taste of lemon juice, and when it’s paired with our favorite protein there’s no going wrong. This recipe is great because it requires hardly any ingredients and it’s super easy to throw together! You won’t be disappointed with this one.
4. Peach Balsamic Chicken
It’s not really summertime if you’re not taking advantage of all the fresh fruit that’s available for you! Fresh peaches are nature’s finest candy, and when you throw them on the grill or bake them, they just get better! Pair these sweet treats with balsamic vinegar for a sauce that will take your regular ol’ chicken dinner to the next level. This is one of the greatest summer chicken recipes so you should definitely try it out!
5. Pesto Chicken
I don’t think there’s anything you could cook that a good pesto sauce wouldn’t immediately make better. This rule applies to summer chicken recipes as well! Whip up a batch of fresh pesto sauce and throw it on your chicken for an instant glow-up it didn’t know it needed. Pair this with some fresh vegetables or even serve over some pasta for a yummy treat that you won’t mind cooking when you get home.
6. Easy Chicken and Lime
Similar to the lemon and pepper recipe, it doesn’t get much easier than an easy-to-make chicken and lime dinner. This combo just screams “summer nights” and would definitely pair well with a cold margarita. Make a large batch of these this summer for an easy and great tasting meal that you’ll make again and again.
7. Mexican Corn and Chicken Tacos
Tacos are a fan favorite by far, and these Mexican style corn and chicken tacos are definitely above par. Make a batch of these for your summer get-togethers, people can customize them how they’d like, but all the flavor will be there.
8. Mediterranean Pita
Chicken pairs well with almost anything, but summer is the time to take advantage of fresh flavors, and that includes Mediterranean style food. This recipe for Mediterranean pita pockets is easy to make and packed with flavor, top with lettuce, crunchy cucumbers, feta cheese, and a homemade tzatziki sauce. You won’t be disappointed!
