Crispy Chicken Recipes with Birds Eye

Who doesn’t love the satisfying crunch of coated chicken hitting their tastebuds?  From young to old firm favourites in this field, like our succulent chicken dippers, are regulars at many a family’s dinner table.  We all have our top choices, but there’s a wealth of ways to bring our crispy chicken into the fold – without a chip in sight!

All our Birds Eye crispy chicken products are made with 100% chicken breast and a few simple ingredients that are specially selected to create the perfect crunch.  They contain all the important nutrients that chicken is spot-on for, like protein.


We love chicken because it’s great on its own and can take any flavours you throw at it.  Our tasty and tender chicken in tempura batter is right at home in salads, pasta dishes and crispy sweet chilli chicken.  Pop your preferred pack size in the freezer and save them for a rainy day – you never know when you might suddenly have a few extra dinner guests!

Far from fried, our tasty chicken goes in the oven to be the superstar of the show – whether you’re crafting a simple salad, a hearty dinner, or trying out something a little different.  If you’re up for crossing the road to creative chicken, look no further.  If these do leave you hungry for more though, check out our other chicken recipes for extra inspiration.



Simple sides and salads

Crispy Chicken Caesar Salad
Crisp up your Caesar with a twist on this classic!  Quick to put together and only 350 calories per serving, this light dish is ideal if you’re pushed for time.  Don’t flap – reach for a little lettuce, crispy chicken and simply assemble with your preferred Caesar ingredients. 

Crispy Chicken with Apple and Walnut Salad
If you’re in the mood for something new, try this refreshed version of the classy Waldorf salad – especially if you’re looking for a starter or side that’ll impress dinner guests.  With apple, celery and walnut, this salad is sure to stand out!

Crispy Chicken and Cheesy Stuffed Mushrooms
Another great option if you’re entertaining, or simply looking for a Saturday treat.  The cheesy stuffed mushrooms are ideal as starters or at BBQs, but we think they’re perfectly suited to our crispy chicken pieces – or matched with our Chicken Dippers for kids’ parties!  Cheese, chicken and crunch: what more could you ask for? 


Delicious crispy chicken dinners

Orzo Pasta with Crispy Chicken
Chicken and pasta, a match made in heaven.  Supercharge some orzo (small pasta that looks like big grains of rice) with our crisp, golden chicken, combine it with mouth-watering basil oil and rocket, and you’ve got a dinner that’ll fast become a family favourite.  

Posh Chicken and Avocado Burger
Please even the fussiest eaters with a fancy chicken burger!  This easy crispy chicken recipe has brioche buns, crunchy Gem lettuce and a zesty lemon-infused mayonnaise, but is still quick and simple – just what you need when you discover you’ve suddenly got a few extra mouths to feed for dinner…



Crisp with a twist

Crispy Chicken with Sweet Chilli Rice
Spice it up with homemade crispy chilli chicken rice (our easy version).  Tangy sweet chilli and a radish salad go brilliantly with our crispy chicken – ready in just 30 minutes, this is all you need for a light lunch or dinner. 

Crispy Sweet and Sour Chicken with Egg Fried Rice
Make your own Chinese crispy chicken in a matter of minutes with this simple recipe, inspired by the takeaway classic.  Add any vegetables you want to the rice for a thoroughly nutritious meal – we like using our pea and sweetcorn mix, along with spring onions and carrots.


Sweet and Sour Crispy Chicken with Noodles
Take your chicken to the next level with colourful Oriental noodles!  Add crunchy sugar snaps, green beans, shredded carrots and whatever else you fancy for a rainbow of colour just bursting with flavour, with tender chicken as the final touch.  

Chicken Katsu Curry
Our take on the Japanese favourite – pick up those chopsticks and have a go at a homemade katsu sauce (we promise it won’t take long).  Drizzled over crispy chicken in tempura batter and a side of fresh veggies, it’s a balanced dinner that holds its own against any restaurant.
