10 Boneless Chicken Breast Recipes

The little black dress of the kitchen, the boneless, skinless chicken breast is a bona fide staple. We’d be willing to bet that if you peeked into the refrigerator of many a Real Simple reader—or took a gander at her “Quick Dinner” Pinterest board—you’d find at least one container of this versatile cut of chicken, along with plenty of ideas for how to prepare it. Luckily, the lean meat can be spiffed up in all sorts of ways and with a wide variety of flavors, and we’ve got ideas for how to bake it, fry it, grill it, or throw it in a salad. Take, for instance, our Italian-inflected Baked Pecorino Chicken, which is coated in homemade bread crumbs then baked. Or there’s our standard (but no less delicious) Chicken Enchiladas, which call for canned enchilada sauce, chicken, tortillas, cheese, and little else. You can dress the chicken breast up—in a bowl of pasta, or with a citrusy arugula salad—or dress it down (Crispy Popcorn Chicken, need we say more?). Here, you’ll find recipes for all these family suppers and more. We’ve got enough motivation to take you through nearly two weeks of chicken dinners. Pin individual recipes that appeal—or the whole slideshow—to consult our list when you’re feeling burnt out on your typical chicken dinners. And know that these ideas are just the beginning; add your own flair to these recipes, and tell us what additions or substitutions you made in the recipe comments!
