This month is National Chicken Month!! Time to celebrate with delicious, easy chicken recipes!
Have your weeknights become busy now that school is back in session? Our school nights are so busy that we now are trying to schedule 2-3 family dinners a week so that our family has a little time together. Do you have to do this too?
Thank goodness it is National Chicken Month!
I have pulled together to share 11 delicious chicken recipes to help you celebrate. Chicken is one dinner our kids eat without complaint :-). One thing I love about these chicken recipes is how easy they are to make. Many are great for busy school nights, and most can even be made ahead!! Chicken is healthy and high in protein, which is perfect for growing kids.
These chicken recipes all have one thing in common…. they are all really easy to make. Many are great for busy school nights, and most can even be made ahead!! Chicken is healthy and high in protein, which is perfect for growing kids.
My first recipe is a gluten-free fried chicken recipe that was shared with me by Proposition Chicken in San Francisco. This restaurant is “the” place for gluten-free fried chicken. Now you can make their famous chicken for yourself!!
This simple gluten-free fried chicken recipe was given to me from the owner of the famous Proposition Chicken in San Francisco.
For me, this recipe was a huge confidence builder. I don’t know why fried chicken was intimidating to me, but with these simple directions, I was able to overcome it! Now it is time for you to rejoice because you CAN enjoy delicious, crisp gluten-free fried chicken!!
This is the recipe that will surprise you the most. I dumped the uncooked rice in the pan, added the chicken and other ingredients and put it into the oven. Within 45 minutes I had this incredibly moist chicken and rice dinner.
This chicken is sweetened with blackberry jam, and my kids love it, even the picky one!
Who doesn’t love a good grilled chicken salad? This one has gotten rave reviews and is even featured on Foster Farm’s Chicken website as a must try salad! This recipe includes fresh apples, green beans, and pomegranate seeds.
This easy grilled chicken salad recipe also includes a homemade citrus vinaigrette dressing recipe.
These may not be the prettiest pictures on my blog, but don’t let the images fool you! This chicken turmeric soup is a supercharged cold and flu busting soup that even your picky eaters will love!
Full of shredded organic chicken and turmeric…feel free to add your favorite veggies in this easy soup recipe too!
Here is another kid-friendly chicken dinner that is so easy to make. My kids love this baked coconut pecan crusted chicken tender recipe! It is protein packed and crispy on the outside.
There is also a homemade honey mustard sauce that is just perfect for drizzling or dipping these baked chicken tender into!
This creamy gluten-free chicken pot pie recipe features a gluten-free drop biscuit topping. Luckily, this is not a spicy curry recipe, so it is one of my kids’ favorite chicken dinners.

This simple gluten-free chicken piccata recipe is a one-pan, dream dinner for those busy school nights. I used a few shortcuts and this easy chicken dinner is ready in just 20 minutes!

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention an economical way to save money. Chicken legs are just as good as other chicken parts, but they always cost so much less! This baked chicken legs recipe is also a quick and easy dinner recipe.
We love to bake our chicken legs with this handy Asian marinate. Dinner is ready in under 30 minutes!
This easy sautéd chicken leg dinner comes from my sister site, Grandma’s Recipes Made Gluten-Free. I had some lofty goals for this site; converting old family recipes to gluten-free, but it is really hard to keep up with two blogs!! There are some great recipes on this site, just not a lot.
