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.

  1. Chicken Caprese


    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?

  2. Pineapple Ginger Chicken


    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.

  3. Honey Garlic 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.

  4. Grilled Cheesy Buffalo 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.

  5. Teriyaki Chicken and Vegetables


    For a flare of Asian cuisine, we love this homemade teriyaki chicken and vegetables. Healthy and bursting with flavor, this is a simple weeknight meal to make in a snap.

  6. Chicken Parmesan Strips


    This recipe takes a classic chicken dish and turns it into a fun, stripped down version…if you know what I mean. Feel free to groan at that one.

  11. Slow Cooker Balsamic Chicken


    Chicken comes out fantastically in your slow cooker – it gives your chicken that much more time to absorb all those flavors! One of our favorite slow cooker chicken meals is this balsamic chicken. It’s so easy to whip up and is super healthy without being dry or flavorless.

  12. Greek Chicken Gyros


    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.

  13. Chicken Parmesan Soup

    This Mardi Gras inspired dish has all the feisty flavor of New Orleans, packed into one easy meal! Another slow cooker gem, you can simply set your Crockpot and enjoy some home-style cooked chicken.

  15. Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas


    Can’t get enough Tex Mex? We don’t blame you. Nothing is as satisfying than hearing the sizzle of a fajita on a wicked hot skillet. Well…these slow cooker fajitas don’t sizzle exactly, but they certainly do most of the work for you! Fair comprise, we think.

  16. Tikka Marsala


    For anyone who has never tried Tikka Marsala, this red hot traditional Indian dish is THE recipe for spicy food lovers. And now you can make it right at home with the assistance of your handy dandy Crockpot.

If you love thai food (and it’s hard not to) you’ll go nuts (no pun intended) for this classic Thai recipe that you can make right at home in your cast iron skillet. Chicken satay is one of the many Thai recipes that utilize the nutty richness of peanuts, bringing a rich flavor to this chicken dish that you’d be hard pressed to find elsewhere.

20. Chicken Zucchini Poppers

Chicken Zucchni PoppersTip Hero
Anything that has “poppers” in the name is going to be good. General rule of thumb. These chicken zucchini poppers are no different! This is a fun take on your usual popper recipe, which usually has something tasty hidden inside a deep fried shell. In our favorite version, we’re wrapping flavorful zucchini in ground chicken, creating healthy bite-sized poppers to dip in your favorite sauce.

21. Buffalo Chicken Dip

What kind of chicken roundup would this be without the one, the only, buffalo chicken dip. This dip continues to be very hot right now (pun a little intended that time) and it’s not going anywhere. Why? You need only stick a chip into these layers of gooey cream cheese, moist chicken breast, and mouth-burning hot sauce to find out.

22. Avocado Chicken Tortilla Soup

We love tortilla soups – it’s all the best parts of Mexican food in a warm, slightly spicy broth, meant to comfort and warm your belly. Add some heart-healthy avocados and strips of chicken and you have a fiesta-worthy soup that you can whip up in minutes.

24. Chicken Avocado Burger

Sad as it is, red meats are not very good for your heart. Most dietitians will tell you to replace your regular red meats, like beef, with leaner meats, like turkey or…chicken. And what’s our favorite red meat staple that we cannot live without? Why, cheeseburgers, of course. With this chicken avocado burger, we still get to satisfy all our burger cravings AND we get added health benefits. Win-win situation.
