55 Healthy Chicken Breast Recipes That Are Far From Boring


Tired of eating bland chicken breasts? Same. Chicken breasts are easy to store and easy to cook—and they can get real boring, real quick. These healthy chicken breast recipes are here to save your taste buds from monotony and ensure you never have a snoozy chicken dish again.

As SELF has previously reported, a healthy chicken meal is simply one that’s full of different nutrients and flavors you actually like. Balancing out the protein-rich chicken with some carbs, fats, and veggies will help you get a wider array of nutritional benefits, tastes, and textures that you wouldn’t get from just the chicken alone. And there are so many creative ways to do that.

Yes, we’re telling you that you don’t need to resign yourself to a life of suffering through flavorless, dry chicken breasts. The fact is, there are endless saucy, flavorful, and healthy chicken breast recipes out there, just waiting for you to cook them.

We’ve parsed through the internet’s infinite chicken breast recipe catalog to bring you 55 of the most delicious ones, from spicy stir-fries to stuffed chicken breasts. Many of them combine the meat with other yummy, good-for-you foods like whole grains and vegetables. For the ones that are mostly just chicken, you can add your favorite sides to make a complete meal—and make sure none of the sauce goes to waste. 

A note about the word healthy here: We know that healthy is a complicated concept. Not only can it mean different things to different people, it’s a word that’s pretty loaded (and sometimes fraught), thanks to the diet industry’s influence on the way we think about food. At SELF, when we talk about food being healthy, we’re primarily talking about foods that are nutritious, filling, and satisfying. But it also depends on your preferences, your culture, what’s accessible to you, and so much more. We selected these recipes with those basic criteria in mind while also trying to appeal to a wide variety of nutritional needs and taste buds.
