20 Amazing Chicken Breast Recipes

In 2012 the average American ate 54.1 pounds of poultry. The bulk majority of that poultry was enjoyed in the form of chicken breasts. I am no master meat cooker and I’m always looking for new ways to cook chicken. I’m sure that I’m not alone in this fact so I thought a round up of 20 different ways to use chicken breast would be a great dinner time inspiration for you this week. That Copycat Chick-fil-a sandwich is calling my name!!

Whether you like your chicken chopped up in a casserole, served by itself, or somewhere in the middle, I’m sure you’ll find a recipe you’d love to try. Enjoy!
