10 Light & Easy Chicken Breast Dinners

Seeing as chicken breast is one of the most versatile ingredients you can have on hand for dinner, it's no surprise it's something we all turn to no matter the season. When it's warm, however, we like our chicken breast dinners to be a bit lighter and brighter (keeping them easy doesn't hurt, either!).

Here are 10 of our favorites.

1. Easy Bruschetta Chicken

Take all the tomatoey goodness from classic bruschetta, pile it onto seared chicken breast, and you have something everyone can agree on.

2. Sheet Pan Honey-Dijon Chicken and Vegetables

This complete meal comes together all on one sheet pan and features a sweet and savory sauce that covers every nook and cranny of the chicken and veggies.

3. Easy Jalapeño Grilled Chicken

While you can definitely get away with marinating the chicken for 30 minutes, if you plan ahead and toss it in the spicy marinade the night before, you'll be rewarded for your efforts.

4. Jacques Pépin's Garlic Chicken Breasts

While chicken coated in flour and cooked until crispy can often be heavy, this version opts for lighter-than-air Wondra flour to ensure the meat won't weigh you down.

5. Crispy Chicken Caesar Orzo Salad

This dinner is the perfect answer for when you really want pasta for dinner but also want to eat a wholesome salad. It's light, satisfying, and comes together in a flash.

6. Parmesan Chicken and Kale Sauté

This simple skillet dinner gets a burst of flavor from a healthy splash of white wine, which helps wilt the kale and add moisture to the chicken.

7. Cold Sesame Chicken and Noodle Salad

Don't forget to rinse the rice noodles in cool water after cooking them — it's a small but significant step that prevents the noodles from sticking and clumping together.

8. Baked Parmesan-Crusted Chicken

Mixing Parmesan cheese in with panko breadcrumbs add salty, nutty flavor in this wholesome twist on breaded chicken.

9. Chicken and Veggie Pesto Salad

If you happen to already have cooked chicken breast in the fridge from last night's dinner or from meal prepping, it will give you a jump-start on this colorful salad.

10. Honey-Garlic Chicken Stir-Fry

Stir-fry is always a great answer when you're looking for a quick chicken dinner that comes together quickly. This simple version is equally great over noodles as it is over rice.
