Quick and easy chicken recipes

Sweet & Sour Crispy Chicken with Noodles 
Whip up a speedy version of this takeaway classic for a Friday treat, using our famous chicken dippers and colourful, crunchy veg for the ultimate bowlful.

Hot & Spicy Chicken Grill Fajita
Ready in 30 minutes and with minimal cooking time: simply pop our chicken grills into the oven, prepare your vegetables, chosen sauces and tortillas (which just need warming through in the oven), and a light, healthy midweek meal is ready.

Easy chicken kebabs
Get the kids involved in making these kebabs, whether it’s BBQ weather or not!  We love ours with cherry tomatoes and button mushrooms, but there are plenty of options – each family member can create their own personal version.

Chicken madras curry 
If you’re looking for some new, but still simple, chicken dinner ideas to add to the family menu, why not try a madras curry?  It’s not a spicy one, we promise, and with lots of good curry sauces out there along with our fragrant Steamfresh rice, it’s ready in under an hour. 

Chicken Pesto Pasta
With fresh roasted tomatoes and our sweet garden peas, this quick pasta dish is a well-balanced meal – we recommend wholewheat pasta for the extra fibre and vitamins.


Simple starters and salads

Chicken Caesar Salad
For a quick chicken recipe, you can’t beat a classic Caesar salad.  It works brilliantly as a starter or a main, and there’s plenty of opportunity to add your own twist – especially if it’s a twist of fresh black pepper!

Brazilian Chicken Salad
Bring the taste of South America to your table with this avocado, mango and lime salad.  It’s fresh, healthy and more filling than you’d think for a salad. 

Chicken Noodle Soup
This is one to soothe the cockles of your heart, and is a brilliant way to use up leftover chicken.  Our Chinese-inspired version uses chilli, ginger and soy sauce; replace these with black pepper and sprig of rosemary or thyme for a more traditional taste.

Baked Cheesy Dippers 
Perfect for a kids’ party, but we can’t resist them as grown-ups either!  This blend of chicken, gooey cheese and crunchy tortilla chips will have everyone coming back for more.


Delicious chicken dinners 

Chicken Chargrill Chasseur
It’s French cooking made simple with our easy chicken Chasseur; this hearty mix of onions, bacon, beans and tomatoes (with some tender chicken chargrills, of course!) is perfect for the cold winter nights.

Hot & Spicy Chicken Rice
Add a bit of bite to the classic combo of chicken and rice, with the refreshing flavours of lemon and coriander making this a sensationally seasoned dish. 

Chicken Katsu Curry
Make your own katsu curry sauce in less than half an hour, and serve it with our crispy chicken in tempura batter to get this popular Japanese classic on the family dinner table.

Chicken Pasta Bake
Pick your favourite pasta sauce to make this yummy bake, and serve with a simple side salad to create a balanced meal.  The leftovers will keep well in the fridge for reheating in the oven – if you have any left! 

Soy, Ginger & Garlic Chicken Chargrills with Ramen Noodles
Try our tasty soy and ginger chargrills, where we’ve already done the seasoning for you.  All that’s left is to prepare noodles and some vibrant veg (we like a little chicken stock too, but it works just as well without) and you’ve got a light dinner full of flavour.
With so many different ways to liven up classic chicken meals, we hope you’ll never be stuck for inspiration again!  Winner winner, chicken dinner.
