Healthy Chicken Recipes -the Best ones for dinner

Chicken is one of the most researched for recipes. With that in mind, I have found 20 of the best healthy chicken dinner recipes for you. They include recipes for chicken breasts, whole chicken and even leftover chicken. You can cook chicken in a slow cooker, in a skillet or on a sheet pan. Grilling is also an option. In addition to recipes, here is a tip. If you are looking to save money, do not buy boneless, skinless chicken. The price is quite exorbitant. Instead buy chicken on the bone with skin. The skin is simple to remove. Buy removing the skin you will save yourself quite a few calories making these healthy chicken recipes.

As for the bone, if you are going to shred the chicken afterwards, leave it on the bone. The chicken will stay more moist in a slow cooker when cooked with the bone in. The bone will simply fall off while cooking. Cutting a chicken breast of the bone is also quite easy. Although cutting a chicken thigh off the bone can be tricky, you can do it.
