If you didn’t already know, we’re big fans of chicken here at TipHero. And what’s not to love? Chicken is a lean protein, so it keeps you full without being too heavy or fattening, and it also has the ability to blend seamlessly into any dish you want to make. Chicken tends to be a bit bland on its own (sorry, chicken) which means that it perfectly takes on whatever flavors you want to add – savory, spicy, or sweet, chicken can do it all.
We’ve made quite a few chicken dishes in the TipHero kitchen, but today we want to count down the 25 best chicken recipes we’ve ever whipped up. Choosing favorites is hard – especially when you have so many delicious dishes to choose from! But we think you’ll agree with our 25 favorite chicken recipes of all time.
Light meals don’t have to be boring. Case and point, this healthy chicken caprese. This juicy chicken breast is topped with fresh tomatoes, avocados and covered in a savory balsamic glaze. Does that sound boring to you?
Dreaming of a vacation getaway? Well, YOU might not be able to fly off to the tropics, but your taste buds can with this exotic pineapple ginger chicken.
Honey and garlic might not SOUND like they go together, but oh, do they ever. Sweet honey and a kick of garlic is the perfect unexpected flavor combo to jazz up your chicken.
Buffalo chicken doesn’t always have to mean unhealthy. This lean dish has all the cheesy goodness and spicy kick of regular buffalo chicken, only leaner.

Few things are as delicious and flavorful as gyros. This classic Greek sandwich combines tangy mustards and zesty lemon usually on a cut of lamb in a soft, doughy pita. This spin (using chicken instead of lamb) is so easy to make and tastes like the real thing…dare we say better.
Nothing warms you up on a rainy day quite like soup. And nothing is quite as delicious as chicken parm…so we thought, why not combine them! This slow cooker soup is simple to throw together and is just the thing for the rainy day blues.
