52 Weeknight Chicken Recipes

I have been blogging for 2.5 years and only two weeks ago dove into the “recipe round-up” realm of food blogs.  Two things about recipe roundups – 1: they are a lot of work to put together but 2: they are pretty awesome, and people love them.

52 Weeknight Chicken Recipes

So with all of the chicken talk this week, I decided to go ahead and put together another one with (duh) chicken recipes as the theme.  52 recipes- one for each week of the year – all shared from some of yours and my favorite bloggers.  Most of them are fairly simple, no-fuss recipes that can be made any night of the week.  But I picked certain ones keeping in mind busy schedules and family-friendly flavors.  Almost every family eats chicken and almost every cook is always looking for ways to reinvent the protein-packed poultry.  I hope you enjoy!

    I love recipe roundups! This one’s great – it can always be tough to decide what to eat during the week, especially when life gets busy. So helpful! I know from experience that recipe roundups can take far more time than making a recipe, so big kudos and thanks to you for putting your hard work into it!

    Oh my word, these all sound fabulous. How’ve you been Cassie? I feel like I haven’t seen you around social media much but it’s probably me because I am only one IG lately these days. Hope you are well!

      Thanks Melanie! Work is keeping me busy so the blog has taken a big back seat. Hope you are well!
