Like most families, my boys and I love a good sweet treat, but generally we eat fairly healthy. One of the problems I sometimes face, though, is how to keep these young men feeling full for any length of time.

That’s why I like to be sure that the meals we make have a solid source of protein. Did you know that boneless skinless chicken breast has 31 grams of protein per 100 grams? That makes it an excellent choice for any satisfying and nutritious meal.

Too busy to make this right away? Pin it for later! Pin this post to your favorite board on Pinterest and it will be there when you’re ready!

Today, I have a bunch of delicious chicken options to share with you. All of these high protein chicken recipes are great as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Serve them with whole grains like brown rice or try a high-protein pasta. If you are looking for a low carb option, use cauliflower rice.

Each of of these recipes is a great meal prep option too. Cook up any of these skillets on the weekend and divide them up into individual portions for the perfect lunch all week long.

That is a win for everyone in my book. Enjoy!

Tips and Tricks

  • Try these recipes with chicken thighs or chicken legs instead of chicken breasts.
  • If you are watching your salt intake as part of your healthy eating plan, look for substitutions for your recipes with less sodium in them, like using low sodium chicken broth or low sodium soy sauce. The switches won’t change how the recipe cooks up, but you will save yourself a lot of salt.
  • Eating raw chicken is a health hazard. To be sure your chicken is fully cooked, check the internal temperature using a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat.
  • Store any leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container.
