Top 10 Chicken Breast Recipes

I remember a time when boneless, skinless chicken breasts weren't available in the supermarket and we had to skin and bone them ourselves. While that wasn't a daunting task, it took time. Now we can find prepared chicken breasts anywhere. And this inexpensive and delicious meat is so versatile and easy to cook.

Just make sure you never buy any boneless, skinless chicken breast halves that are larger than 8 ounces, or you are buying breasts from a stewing hen. They will never get tender...MORE with the dry heat methods in this list. These are the best chicken breast recipes, including most of my favorites. And yours too! Serve these recipes with a green salad or rice or mashed potatoes for a satisfying dinner.
