Chicken

Winner winner chicken dinner! Everyone loves a great chicken recipe and these will quickly become some of your new favorites… I know they’re mine!

From making a chicken and broccoli stir fry to a whole roasted chicken, here is everything you need to know about cooking with chicken.

When you make a chicken recipe, it is important that you don’t overcook it or it will be dry. Chicken should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F using a meat thermometer.

White meat (chicken breasts) are naturally leaner, meaning that if they’re overcooked, they can dry out. Chicken thighs and chicken legs are dark meat which is naturally fattier and has a richer flavor.

You can try making a chicken casserole like chicken divan, or a chicken and rice casserole. Need an appetizer? Try a buffalo chicken dip. Looking for chicken breast recipes? These grilled chicken breasts couldn’t be easier! You won’t go hungry, that’s for sure.

If you are roasting a whole chicken, the dark meat is usually the last to cook, so make sure you check the temperature correctly. A meat thermometer should be inserted between the breast, the leg, and the thigh. Make sure you don’t hit the bone, or it will change the reading of your thermometer!

If you have leftover chicken bones, make yourself a homemade chicken broth. You can use it to make a chicken noodle soup, or to flavor different sauces and dishes!

It is naturally low in fat, and very healthy. It is packed full of protein and contains a ton of minerals your body needs such as selenium, magnesium, zinc, and iron. The perfect protein that lends itself well to almost any sauce!
