We love boneless skinless chicken breasts here at our house; they are one of the healthiest cuts of meat that is high in protein and lower in fat and calories.
Not only that but, chicken breasts are so incredibly versatile! You can serve them baked up in a delicious chicken marinade; you can cook them in the slow cooker or in the instant pot, you can bake them up with some vegetables in a sheet pan dinner, or cook them in a skillet as a stir fry or skillet meal.
