8 Creative Chicken Recipes That You Have To Try
Meat dishes are often judged to be quite rich and heavy, but these chicken-centric meals are here to refute that claim. Here you'll find 8 delicious and unique chicken dishes that are not only filling, yet, light, but which are also unlike anything you've ever seen, heard of, or tasted before, so you're in for a real treat.
1. Chicken Cordon Bleu with Béchamel Sauce
Anyone who loves anything cooked in breadcrumbs will prick up their ears when they hear the words "Cordon Bleu." But it's not just the tasty crust that makes this dish particularly delicious — what's hiding inside has a lot to do with it too. Don't miss out on the chance to try this classic dish with a modern twist and a complementary sauce. Get the recipe here.
2. Drunken Chicken
When you order chicken with beer, you usually receive something to eat and something to drink. But that doesn't always have to be the case, as this recipe proves. Today, we're bringing the two elements together to create an unusual, yet wonderfully tasty dinnertime meal. Bring on the beer! Get the recipe here.
3. BBQ Swineapple
If there's anything you haven't yet thrown on the grill this summer, it might just be this. But fans of Hawaiian cuisine will be really excited about this late-in-the-season sensation: a chicken-stuffed grilled pineapple with bacon strips—a variation of all your favorite Hawaiian flavors, but turned inside out! So don't roll away the grill just yet and instead get ready to luau! Get the recipe here.
4. Baked Onions with Chicken
Onion is an ingredient that should never be missing from a hearty meal. It has an unmistakable taste that gives our food some extra zing. But today's recipe needs more than "just a few onions" for the best flavors and aromas. So how are we going to do that? With bacon and barbecue sauce, of course! Get the recipe here.
5. Chicken Alfredo Garlic Roll
For some, this recipe may seem like a rather pointless exercise which involves "hiding" the chicken alfredo goodness inside a loaf of sliced bread. Yet others will see the bread as the perfect base for creating a culinary delight that's great for sharing. If you happen to fall into the former category, we're now going to try our best to win you over with a delicious dish that's hard to resist. Get the recipe here.
6. Giant Cordon Bleu
Some people believe that when it comes to filling meat with more meat, we've reached the peak of culinary achievement. But once again, we're here to convince the doubters — this giant cordon bleu is not for those with a small appetite and definitely not a dish for one person, unless you eat nothing else for the rest of the week. Get the recipe here.
7. Schnitzel Lasagna
Here at Scrumdiddlyumptious, we like to mix things up. Bringing a breath of fresh air into the kitchen is our speciality, as evidenced by this apparently classic lasagna — with a crucial difference between the layers. Anyone looking for ground beef here should give up the search. Get the recipe here.
8. Watermelon Chicken
Watermelon is the perfect summer fruit, and this recipe also shows just how versatile watermelon is: not only does it serve as the container for the chicken, but at the same time, the juice adds a certain special something to the sauce. Talk about multitasking! Get the recipe here.
With this multifaceted selection of creative recipes, you'll no longer have to resort to the typical and bland chicken dishes, like a plain, grilled chicken breast. And as an added bonus, these dishes are perfect for dinner parties make great leftovers.
