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!

Rhiannon loves to cook and bake but has also never said "no" to a takeout burrito (see, she's just like you!). Despite slowly running out of room in her cabinets, she continues to expand her collections of cookbooks and kitchen gadgets and is deeply jealous of people who can just "whip something up" without a recipe. When she's not in the kitchen, you can find her camping and hiking with her husband and rescue dog, Waffles.
