One of the great things about chicken is that it's super versatile – you can serve it with just about anything, which means you're unlikely to get sick of it!
Chicken breasts are a leaner cut of meat, and have more protein with fewer calories. That being said, chicken thighs can be healthy too, as long as you don't fry them or smother them in an unhealthy sauce. Everything in moderation is the way to go.
A lot of these recipes can be made using leftover chicken – just add in the leftover chicken in the recipe instead of cooking raw chicken. You can also check out this round-up of easy leftover chicken recipes.
