These Are Our Best No-Stress Chicken Recipes
You don't need extra stress in your life right now.
Cooking doesn't always need to be a stressful affair. Here are our best easy chicken recipes that will put a flavorful meal on the table with as little fuss as possible:
1 Ginger-Soy Roasted Chicken Recipe
The ingredients list may be a little long but it's really a dump and marinate recipe. The combination of ingredients ensures that you not only get a chicken meal that's super flavorful but the process of making this chicken meal is simple and easy, too.
2 Mongolian-Glazed Chicken Poppers Recipe
This might sound like it's complicated but it's really not. The chicken cooks fast and the sauce you toss this in is super tasty. If you're in a hurry, you can serve these with these the chicken popcorn unglazed and instead, simmer down some prepared and bottled teriyaki sauce that you can substitute for the Mongolian glaze. No one needs to know but you!
3 Lemon-Lime Soda Chicken Recipe
Need a fast chicken recipe that doesn't even need you to cut up that whole chicken you have in your refrigerator? This may be it! Grab a can of lemon-lime soda or whatever soda you have in your kitchen and use that as the base liquid in your marinade. YJust simmer everything together in a pot until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is thickened for the best chicken meal experience.
4 Crispy Fried Chicken Adobo Recipe
What's there not to love about the fried chicken? We can't find any reason to not love fried chicken so when we can combine two recipes into one that will yield a dish that's crispy but also flavorful, we're on board to try that. That's how we feel about this recipe. This is a chicken adobo recipe that instead of being simmered in the adobo sauce, it's floured and then fried until the flour crisps up the chicken skin. The result is a super succulent fried chicken with adobo flavor. Winner!
5 Cheesy Chicken and Corn Nuggets Recipe
Chicken nuggets might seem like a dish that's best bought instead of made but this is one exception that we think you need to hear. These are not your usual chicken nuggets. These are gooey, stretchy, and cheesy chicken nuggets with sweet corn kernels added in for some sweetness. These have mozzarella added to the chicken nugget fritter batter so you end up with not just the chicken but a corn-dotted chicken nugget that will reward you with a cheese stretch, especially when you take a bite out of one straight out of the fryer.
6 Pan-Fried Chicken Recipe
You can do nothing simpler than pan-frying chicken. Boneless chickens or chicken fillets are the best choices for this recipe since these are faster cooking than their bone-in counterparts. Since these are going to be simply pan fried, it's best if you grab a meat mallet or the heaviest pan you have, and give these chicken pieces a whack before seasoning and frying to make sure that each part of the chicken is evenly cooked.
An equally simple cream sauce made in the same pan with some cream and mustard creates a dish that's simple but doesn't taste that simple either.
7 Chicken Caldo Recipe
You can cook a tinolang manok recipe, but there's just something more simple if you cook this boiled chicken soup recipe instead. All you do is simply boil a chicken in water until tender, then only after it's tender do you garnish and make it flavorful. The flavor of the chicken is already in the broth it's simmering in so this is the perfect recipe for those who are super busy and don't know what to do just yet with that chicken. Just leave it to cook and become tender and then decide to make into tinola or this caldo recipe.
8 Chicken Pakam Recipe
What can be more simple than making a dish using just chicken, tomatoes, and some seasonings?That's exactly what this dish from Bulacan is like. It's basically chicken simmered in lots of fresh tomatoes seasoned with some garlic, ginger, fish sauce, and a little vinegar to amp up and enhance the tang of the tomatoes.
9 Steamed Chicken Recipe
Are you not in the mood for frying? Then, making some steamed chicken might be what you want to do instead. This super simple recipe makes you use a steamer or better yet, your rice cooker for more than just rice. It's the best convenient steamer substitute! This is served with two kinds of sauces you can serve with it but even if you don't want the sauces, you can serve this with your choice of whatever prepared condiment you like.
10 Chicken Curry Recipe
Chicken curry is an easy recipe! Make full use of a packet of ready-made chicken curry seasonings to make your life easier. No judgment because honestly, that mix of herbs, spices, and seasonings is perfect for our palate. It's creamy from the gata, flavorful from the curry spices in the seasoning packet, and is hearty from the chicken, potatoes, and carrots. All you need is that unli rice.
What the easiest way to make any chicken recipe easier? Make any chicken easier to cook simply by using chicken fillets or chopping up the pieces into smaller chunks.
