50+ Healthy Chicken Recipes

It's amazing how easily we can fall into the same old routine. Whether its our daily schedule or, in our case, the same old dinners. It seems that I always cook the same- taco, baked chicken, and pork chops. If you were to ask "What's for dinner?" more than likely I'll answer with one of those 3 things.

I have been working hard to switch it up around here, which I have found easier said than done! We are jumping back on the healthy food/ healthy eating wagon, so of course I needed some new recipes. I've scoured Pinterest and come up with 50 ways to prepare chicken!

Why chicken you ask? Because chicken provides around 26 grams of protein, and it is one of the leanest meats available. Not to mention, we eat an average of 88 pounds of chicken a year! (Who couldn't use a few new ways to cook it!
