Chicken Dinner Recipes to Try This Week

Cheesy Chicken Roll-Ups

One of my favorite things to make during the week is chicken. I always have some handy in the freezer so I don’t have to run to the store when I’m trying to put a meal together. I love cooking with chicken because it is versatile. If you’re wondering what to make for dinner tonight and also have chicken handy, give one of these Blue Ribbon recipes a try. They’re full of flavor and an easy weeknight dinner option.

“My significant other is doing low carb and even those not doing it know that pasta is a big no-no,” reveals Rose Daly (Madison, TN). “But sometimes even ‘low carbers’ crave a casserole that’s full of cheesy goodness. So, I decided to try to come up with a recipe that was low in carbs and still fit the bill for cheesiness.”

Honorary Kitchen Crew member Robin Lieneke (Chamois, MO) tested Rose’s Low Carb Chicken Casserole and gave it two thumbs up.

“With lots of cheesy goodness, this chicken casserole is very tasty,” shared Robin. “The luscious cheese sauce is what makes it so satisfying. While baking, it makes the house smell delicious.” Serve with a side salad and low carb vegetables for a dinner everyone will love.

“We eat a lot of chicken and I wanted something different so I came up with this sauce to put on my spicy chicken and it took the taste of the chicken to a whole new level,” explains Nelda Carnley (Jack, AL).

Nelda’s Spicy Chicken with Avocado Sauce is soooo good. The sauce is creamy, tangy and has a kick of spice. Chipotle peppers are added to give it that bit of heat. If you don’t like things spicy, just cut back on the pepper. Besides on chicken, the avocado sauce would be good to dip into tortilla chips or on a cheesy chicken quesadilla.

If you want an incredible Crock Pot meal, take a look at Cassie’s Comforting Chicken & Noodles recipe. Not only is it hearty, rich, and delicious, but it’s also so easy to prepare.

“I made this easy, tasty meal for my mom to help out while ill,” says Cassie. “She loved it.”

Cooking the chicken low and slow for several hours makes it tender and flavorful. The noodles take on the flavor of the chicken and the creamy soup to make the whole pot irresistible. Even your pickiest eater will clean their plate.

Sometimes it is difficult to keep chicken from drying out too much when baking. Well, no need to worry about that with Randi Williams’ (Los Angeles, CA) Baked Dijon Chicken.

“This is a perfect meal for those nights where time is of the essence,” thinks Randi. “Team this up with some mashed potatoes and veggies and you’re set!”

The evaporated milk and Dijon mustard combination add flavor and work together to seal in moisture. Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs make a nice crunchy coating for the chicken.

“A very tasty chicken dish that is quite easy to prepare,” is how Maggie ^O^ describes her Cheesy Chicken Roll-Ups recipe. “It can be prepped ahead of time and placed in the fridge until you are ready to cook.”

During the week I love a meal I can prep ahead of time. These cheesy chicken roll-ups are going to become a favorite addition to your weekly menu. When you cut into the chicken, yummy cheese oozes out. The gravy with sauteed mushrooms is a foolproof addition that completes this wonderful meal.

Next time you’re wondering what to make for dinner, think about making chicken. Depending on what your taste buds are in the mood for, you can find a recipe to satisfy them. If you happen to make one (or two) that I mentioned here, make sure to leave your review. Happy Pinching!
