Chicken breast is an incredibly popular dinner main. Popular for its light taste, lean protein benefits, low price tag, and versatility across so many recipes, it’s an obvious choice. Despite all that, it can get boring (fast) if you’re not finding new recipe inspirations to keep you going. Especially if you’re like me and buy a bulk pack of chicken and then begin looking for creative ways to use them up! Whether it’s wrapped, stuffed, shredded, diced, or grilled you’ll never have a boring meal with chicken breast ever again. Well, not if you use one of these recipes, that is!
It may look like a lot of work, but it’s not! With only 5 ingredients, this recipe requires minimal work and less than 30 minutes.
