If you are looking to branch out on the meals that you cook or you just need some inspiration for the chicken that you have sitting in the freezer, then look no further as this post will go through 4 delicious chicken dishes that you can easily learn to make at home. These recipes involve minimal fuss and maximum flavour.

  • Chicken Chow Mein

This recipe is an authentic Chinese dish that can be cooking in a mere ten minutes. The noodle stir-fry is a flexible dish, meaning you can take out and add in any ingredients you desire. So if you are cooking for a fussy eater, then this dish is ideal for adapting to picky needs. 


  • Medium egg noodles
  • A splash of toasted sesame oil
  • Skinless chicken breast fillets - sliced into strips
  • 2 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1 tsp five-spice powder
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 1 red pepper - finely sliced
  • Bean sprouts
  • 2 spring onion - used for garnish on top 

Use one pan for boiling the noodles, and another for frying up the chicken, vegetables, and sauce. Once the noodles are cooked, mix them into the pan with all the goods in it.


  • Shredded Chicken Tacos

This Mexican dish always goes down as a treat, with even the pickiest of eaters enjoying the tender, moist chicken. Cooking chicken so that it is not dry is essential to this dish, and at Corrie Cooks, they recommend using an instant pot to get perfectly cooked chicken. Once the chicken is cooked, you take it out of the pot and put it on a chopping board. Then you can use two forks to pull the chicken apart. 


  • Corn tacos
  • Skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • A dash of Olive Oil
  • Pepper - cut into strips
  • Red onion - cut into strips
  • 1 tbsp of BBQ sauce

Once the chicken has been pulled apart, lightly fry it up with the vegetables and add your seasoning. Pop the taco shells in the oven for a few minutes to warm them up before putting the filling in.

  • Chicken and Bacon Pie

If you are after a comforting and warming dish, then what better option than a chicken and bacon pie. While this one takes a little longer to cook, it mainly spends its time in the oven so you don’t have to be at the stove watching over it. 


  • Chicken breast
  • Bacon lardons or pancetta cubes 
  • Leek
  • 100ml of Milk
  • 1tsp of Flour
  • Puff Pastry
  • An egg for egg wash on the top of the pastry

While you fry up the chicken, bacon, and leek together in a pan, preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Pour the milk and flour into the frying pan and mix until you get a creamy texture. Then pour the filling into an oven dish and place the puff pastry on top. Once the pastry is firmly in place then do your egg wash before popping it in the oven until golden brown. 


  • Chicken and Chorizo Tray Bake

Last but certainly not least we have the chicken and chorizo tray bake! What is most exciting about this dish is that it is a one tray wonder, meaning your washing-up duties will be minimal. 


  • Chicken thighs
  • Chorizo ring or cubed chorizo pieces
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • White Onion
  • A splash of white wine of your choice
  • Mushrooms - chopped into chunks
  • 3 Rosemary sprigs 

Preheat the oven to 220 degrees and while it is warming up, assemble your tray and spread out the ingredients so that they can cook evenly. Cook for 30-40 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and there is no pink showing.
