Why Do We All Love Chicken?

Although we are not all about that "chicken only" life (have you seen our Sriracha Shrimp?), we are all about trying to keep the cost of our meal preps under $4/meal. Keeping the cost down does mean eating chicken for quite a few meals a week because it is one of the cheapest proteins you can buy, especially these days. So, instead of having the same sad, old chicken and rice desk lunch, we thought, why not add some variety; With 27 Chicken Recipes That Are Lit AF. Yes, that may sound intense, but trust us, once you see what's going on below, you will agree! We would NOT steer you wrong here, scout's honor!

Substitutions and Alterations

You can easily swap the cut of chicken (i.e., breast, legs, wings, etc.) for what works best for you. Also, many of these recipes would be great for almost any kind of meat.

So, if you just can't handle another chicken breast (we feel you on that), we have just offered you 27 more recipes because each of these is meat friendly.

For our vegetarian and/or vegan friends out there, tofu and tempeh will work wonders in place of the chicken, too!
