Chicken breast recipes to give you tons of healthy weeknight dinner ideas. This post has ideas for baked chicken breast, instant pot chicken breast, slow cooker chicken breast, as well as stir fries, skillets and sheet pan recipes!
It's no secret that 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.
We eat chicken breasts at least 3 times a week, and I'm always on the lookout for new chicken breast recipes. They are versatile, and when cooked the right way, juicy and delicious!
Here are some recipe ideas to keep dinner exciting.

How to cook the PERFECT Baked Chicken Breast
Chicken breast marinade recipes
One of the simplest ways to add some flavor to a boneless skinless chicken breast is to marinate it! You can marinate your chicken breasts in the fridge for up to 24 hours or in the freezer for up to 3 months. This is one of my favorite meal prep tips...having your freezer stocked up with chicken breasts in a marinade is such a great way to get easy dinners on the table.

Instant Pot Chicken Breast Recipes:
The Instant Pot is SUCH a convenient way to cook your chicken breasts! Not only do they end up perfectly juicy, but they cook in a fraction of the time. And you don't need to turn on your oven, making this a great way to keep the oven off this summer!
