Chicken is one of, if not the most popular ingredient on Half Hour Meals. You can make chicken in almost any flavor imaginable. It’s a very healthy protein because it is low fat. The protein keeps you full for a long time, which makes the meal very satisfying.

8. Chicken Caesar Salad

This classic chicken Caesar salad uses dark meat. It’s richer in flavor and stays moist while breast meat can turn dry. It is also an economical option. It is paired with salty prosciutto and a creamy dressing.

7. Honey Mustard Chicken Salad

You can eat a whole bowl of this salad and not feel guilty! Honey mustard makes a great salad dressing and dip for chicken pieces. To make this recipe even healthier, bake and don’t fry the chicken.

6. Almond Crusted Chicken Salad

Does the summer heat have you craving something cool and crisp? This is the perfect summer dinner! The kids love it, because there are chicken fingers involved, but the chicken fingers are “grown up” enough, that the adults love it too! Simple, and light, it makes a perfect summer meal.

5. Chicken Caesar Flatbread

In this twist on traditional Caesar salad, chicken breasts are marinated in Caesar dressing and grilled. They’re then added to grilled flatbreads along with Caesar salad. Think out of the box with your salads. This is a perfect summer dinner!

4. Chicken Strawberry Spinach Salad

This is the perfect summer salad. The fresh strawberries and spinach compliment the chicken really nicely and give it a sweet (but not overpowering) taste. It’s easy to make and healthy too, which makes it a great go-to dinner (or lunch) any day of the week.


3. Buffalo Chicken Salad

This meal is so easy to make. Put the chicken in the slow cooker in the morning, and when you get home, shred it and prepare the other ingredients. Dinner’s ready in no time, and it’s absolutely delicious!

2. Grilled Chicken Salad

Trying to eat healthy? That means lots of protein and vegetables. This salad is a delicious way to enjoy dinner while getting all the nutrients you need to stay healthy. Feel free to switch up any of the ingredients – it’ll be delicious no matter what you add.

1.  Grilled Chicken Orzo Salad

We’re switching it up with this last recipe. The regular lettuce salad has changed to a pasta salad. In this recipe, orzo pasta is combined with grilled chicken, fresh vegetables, and a dressing that is both tangy and sweet. Try adding fresh spinach or using sundried tomatoes instead of cherry. This is a light, healthy, and delicious lunch or dinner!
