A week doesn't go by without a chicken dinner on our roster for a night. The simplicity and budget-friendliness of chicken keep us (and you!) coming back for more. We know you feel the same, if these recipes that you loved so much this past year are any proof. Here are our top chicken recipes of 2017.

1. Creamy Slow Cooker Peanut Chicken and Broccoli

The secret to this one-bowl dinner is to add the broccoli florets just at the end of cooking, to ensure they don't lose their vibrant green color and become mushy.

2. Sheet Pan Honey-Chipotle Chicken and Sweet Potatoes

Canned chipotle chiles in adobo are the key to this one-pan dinner. They're blended with honey, garlic, and lime juice to make a sweet, smoky, and spicy marinade for the chicken.

6. Make-Ahead Chicken and Veggie Chopped Salad

The best part about this salad is that it can be made up to four days in advance and refrigerated undressed for up to one week. That means it's a great choice for a week of healthy packable lunches.

7. Dill Pickle Chicken

If you're someone who laments pouring the juices from a can of pickles down the drain, this recipe is for you. It uses those juices as an incredibly flavorful brine for boneless, skinless chicken thighs.

8. The Best Pesto Chicken Salad

What makes this pesto chicken salad the best? We think it involves making the pesto from scratch, if you can, and adding sun-dried tomatoes to the mix.

9. Creamy French Mustard Chicken

This French-inspired chicken dinner is an awesome pick for an impromptu dinner party, as it feels fancy, thanks to the creamy Dijon mustard pan sauce, but take less than 30 minutes to make.

10. Drunken Chicken and Mushrooms

This recipe proves that chicken breasts can hardly be dry and flavorless if they swim in a batch of white wine as they cook.

11. Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken Sandwiches

This recipe calls for you to make your own ranch seasoning, but don't fret — making a batch couldn't be easier and you can control the amount of salt and eliminate the addition of MSG that can be found in the packaged stuff.
