Regardless of which cooking method you choose, all of these chicken recipes are delicious. You can make them for lunch/dinner or meal prep them for the week ahead!

Healthy Chicken Breast FAQs:

What is the healthiest way to cook chicken breast? All of these recipes are healthy, but my favorite way to cook chicken is pan seared with a little bit of oil and seasonings. We also like to use chicken in veggie loaded soups or salads!

How do you make chicken breast taste good and healthy? Marinating, seasoning, and adding other ingredients (veggies, broth, some healthy fats, etc) can help your chicken breasts both taste good and stay healthy!

What is the healthiest chicken breast to buy? We like to buy organic, free range chicken breast. We buy all of our chicken from ButcherBox. I think it is hands down the best chicken. It is so tender, juicy and has barely any fat on it! If you want to try ButcherBox – click here and check out this deal!

What can I do with chicken breast? Pretty much anything! Soups, sauces, shredded, fajitas, pan seared.. there are recipes for everything here!
