What are some easy recipes for chicken?

Chicken Tetrazzini combines cooked vermicelli, chicken, and mushrooms with a rich sherry–Parmesan cheese sauce. The mixture is sprinkled with breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese and baked until bubbly and golden. This is a great way to use leftover cooked chicken. Parmesan is full of flavor, so a little goes a long way.


King Ranch Chicken Casserole

Our most popular casserole also comes with a light version and a quick and easy version. No matter which one you make, it's guaranteed to be a hit.

Herbed Chicken Parmesan

This lighter version of an Italian favorite loses some of the fat but none of the taste. We recommend rice-shaped orzo pasta with this saucy chicken entrée, but you can serve spaghetti or angel hair pasta instead.

Chicken Cordon Bleu

The recipe may sound fancy, but it's not hard to make. Simply pound boneless chicken breast halves and top each with prosciutto and mozzarella cheese. Roll up the chicken pieces, dredge in breadcrumbs, and bake.

Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

Several online reviewers have commented that this is much like the classic recipe, Chicken Divan, but with broccoli florets instead of spears. The creaminess comes from a fat-free white sauce, mayonnaise, sour cream and cream of mushroom soup.

Chicken Scallopine with Morels and Spring Vegetables

If you're looking for a chicken recipe that will impress your dinner guests, this one is for you. One reviewer believes that "This is Cooking Light's best recipe yet!"

Champion Chicken Parmesan

Combine sun-dried tomatoes, canned tomatoes and red bell pepper in an easy homemade tomato sauce that you spoon over breaded chicken and pasta. A number of online reviewers tell us that they could eat this tasty chicken every week.

Asparagus and Chicken Carbonara

Raw egg yolks and whipping cream contribute both creaminess and fat to a traditional pasta carbonara. This lighter version achieves the same texture with egg substitute and nonfat evaporated milk.

Quick Chicken Recipes

Quick and easy, creamy lemon chicken piccata is a simple and delicious 30-minute meal made with tender chicken breast in a light lemon sauce with capers. One of my favorite easy chicken dinners.

How to Store Chicken Dinners

Store leftover chicken from any of these quick chicken recipes in an airtight container and place in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Most of these chicken dinners are also freezer-friendly and can also be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.
