Since I had my daughter Chloe several months ago, we’ve been eating A LOT of chicken in this house. It’s one of my family’s favorite foods because it’s not too expensive, very easy to digest and is super easy to prepare with little mess. We’re so busy around here that I like to cook a whole bunch of boneless, skinless breasts at a time, so we always have a good protein to munch on for lunch, dinner or even as a snack. I realized that Kenya and my husband were starting to get burned out on my usual chicken recipe, so I decided to switch it up a bit. I wanted to do something with the chicken that would allow it to be yummy all on it’s own, in chopped salads, or with pasta, but seriously quick and easy.

I love this versatile recipe because you can triple it to feed a crowd for a summer BBQ or simply make some for dinner and have plenty leftover for Kenya’s afternoon snack. This recipe is a no brainer, especially for those who don’t like to cook!

  1. New favorite way to marinade chicken! We baked the chicken in the oven at 375 for 35 minutes, and it turned out great!

  2. I’m wondering about baking too! I’m also considering using our panini maker to “grill” these tonight!
