This white meat is a staple around many households. It stands to reason that you'll want some easy chicken recipes so you don't cook the same dish(es) over and over and over. You know you're guilty of that. We all have been.

This is where you'll find that variety that you're looking for without all the fuss and muss and mess of others recipes. I'm all for the KISS method when it comes to cooking...keep it simple sweetie ;)

When I used to search for simple chicken recipes, I became quite jaded.  The recipes I found kept me in the kitchen all evening. I don't want to be in the kitchen all evening! Unless it's a special occasion, I have better things to do. You have better things to do!

With a recipe selection this big, some of these will be quicker than others, but at least there are plenty from which to choose.
