4 Easy Chicken Dinners
There is a reason the term “Winner Winner Chicken Dinner” came into existence. Who doesn’t love good, easy chicken dinners? I know chicken is my go to when I am in a rush and desperately trying to throw something together. It’s quick, easy, and everyone likes it! Here are 4 of my favorites, most of which can be made with the items already in your pantry! I can’t think of anything better than not having to run to the store to pick up something for dinner.
I came across all these recipes when trying to find low carb meals to serve my family that everyone would love. The best thing about these recipes is they don’t taste low carb – which means everyone can enjoy them!
If you aren’t following a low carb diet, enjoy these dishes with your favorite veggies, sweet potato fries, your favorite pasta or a slice of homemade bread.

With 3 simple ingredients, almonds, chicken and olive oil this is a quick and easy main dish to prepare on those busy nights. The almonds make a really nice crust, and much healthier alternative to traditional bread crumbs. Pair it with a salad or your favorite side dish and you’ll have a complete, healthy meal!
From The Recipe Critic
This is one of those dishes that look fancy, taste fancy, but is super easy to put together. The creamy garlic sauce will satisfy your need for something rich and filling, while the mushrooms and spinach add a variety of textures to the dish. Your family will surely be impressed by your culinary skills after you serve this up over a bed of their favorite pasta with a side of garlic bread. I like to go low carb and serve with steamed broccoli.

Talking about easy chicken dinners, I just had to try anything that has the word lazy in the title and looks this delicious! I love stuffed chicken, but putting in all the work to make such a dish is more time then I have to spare! This recipe has made it possible to have the deliciousness of stuff chicken without all the work. Roast some root veggies while the chicken cooks and you have an easy, complete week day meal to serve your family.

OK, this one may not be as quick as the others, but the flavor in this dish is well worth little extra planning it takes to marinate the chicken. The marinate recipe is the same as the dressing, use half to marinate and the remaining to dress your salad. And you can get all the veggies chopped and prepped while the chicken marinates!
What’s really great about this recipe is that you can save it for those hot summer days when it’s just too hot to cook inside. It’s light enough on those days you don’t feel like eating too much, but filling enough that you won’t be raiding the freezer for ice cream later.
