If you’re anything like me, you’re probably busy most of the day and the last thing you want to think about is what to make for dinner. You’re either working, running errands, taking care of your kids, going to school, or a multitude of other things. And at the end of the day, you don’t want to spend your evening standing in the kitchen trying to get dinner on the table. You want something that’s super easy to make, requires just a few ingredients, and still tastes amazing. Because seriously, who wants to sit down for dinner and not enjoy their food, right?

So I thought I’d come up with ideas that would be perfect for a weeknight dinner. That way you won’t have to stress out about what you’ll make for dinner or worry about spending so much time in the kitchen after a long day. As a bonus, if you have leftovers, you can always pack them away for lunch the next day.

Chicken is one of my favorite ingredients to use because it works so well with so many different dishes.

I like to use Foster Farms® Organic Chicken for these recipes because I know exactly where my chicken comes from. This line of chicken is non-GMO project verified, locally grown in California, free range, and certified organic by the USDA. Plus,  it’s available at mainstream grocery stores like Safeway so  is easy to find and buy.

Here are some of my favorite easy chicken recipes that are perfect for a weeknight dinner. What will you be making tonight?

This Chicken Zucchini Noodle Soup is one of my absolute favorite dishes to make on a chilly night. Filled with tons of vegetables and white chicken breast meat, this twist on the classic soup is soo delicious and healthy. If you prefer, you can use pasta or egg noodles as a substitute for the zucchini noodles. And if you have no access to a spiralizer, you can always cut the zucchini into matchsticks instead.

    I spend way too much money on take-out because I hate to cook and never know what to cook. These recipes look delicious and like recipes I would actually try! Thank you 🙂

    We continue traveling worldwide. Sometimes it is hard to tell what kind of meat is in the market. So we buy a lot of chicken. Always good to have a few fast recipes handy like these. Quoting my mother, “Chicken looks the same in any language.” Cheers.
