Chicken tends to be on a weekly rotation at the dinner table for a few reasons: It's easy, budget-friendly, and always pleases hungry eaters at the end of a long day. But because we turn to chicken so frequently, it's inevitable that it gets a little boring. No worries — here are 30 chicken recipes you may have never cooked before. They happen to be as simple and satisfying as your tried-and-true standbys, but are a fresh take on the weeknight-roster regular.

Chicken on the Stovetop

Grab a skillet or a pot, crank up the stove, and know dinner is going to be easy tonight. Make a faster chicken and rice casserole by ditching the oven, or make kid-friendly, crispy chicken tenders that call for a spicy-sweet dipping sauce.

Chicken from the Oven

Or get the oven preheated to make something extra comforting for dinner, whether it's a creamy chicken pot pie or cheesy chicken French bread pizzas.

Chicken Salads and Summer Rolls

If you're in the mood for something a little lighter for dinner that's still rich in protein, bring chicken to your salad bowl or roll it up into easy, utensil-free summer rolls.
