When running short on dinner minutes, we tend to reach for the easiest-to-prepare meal. But there are plenty of ways to work in a nutritious homemade dinner—even if our grumbling bellies are calling out to the freezer aisle. Our suggestion: Prep your main ingredient ahead of time—grilled chicken, in particular, keeps especially well in the fridge; plus, its flavor pairs deliciously with just about any ingredient you can imagine. Busy week ahead? Cook up our Beer Can Chicken, and slice and dice it any way you’d like for use in future meals. Here, find a flock of healthy chicken recipes that makes tasty use of our favorite lean protein—all with a prep time of ten minutes or less!

Chicken Recipes

So I totally love this chicken recipe list, but there are some ideas I would do differently. For example, I would actually try this baked chicken recipe:

2 Oranges (one sliced one jucies)
1 red onion
2 garlic slices
1 tea spoon salt
1 tea spoon pepper

You could make a really healthy baked chicken with this recipe using your oven. Pre-heat the over to 375, and begin the prepping.

1) Salt the whole chicken, or the breasts
2) add the orange slices into the inside of the chicken, with the onions too. If you are baking breasts, just pout the slices on top (onions too).
3) Add half of the squeezed orange juice, pre cook, and the other after during the baking process.
4) bake the whole chicken for an hour, but check it periodically and add juice to it if it seems to be getting dry.
5) One done, add pepper to taste and bring out of the over

Whalah, its a healthy baked chicken recipe that is healthy and tasty.

Try any of these healthy chicken recipes and win with the family tonight.
