Posted on

1. Garlicky Chicken and Pumpkin Rice

Make sure you grab a "pie" or "sugar" pumpkin, so it's actually edible — those big gourds make great jack-o'-lanterns, but less-than-tasty dinners. Get the recipe.

3. Roast Salsa Chicken and Spaghetti Squash


5. Honey Mustard Chicken with Fingerling Potatoes and Green Beans

You'll cook the potatoes and chicken first, then layer on the green beans so everything's done at the same time. Get the recipe.

7. Slow Cooker Chicken Lo Mein


8. Lemon Chicken and Gnocchi with Broccoli and Brussels Sprouts

You're ~gnocchi~ gonna complain about this one. You can prep all the ingredients and store in the fridge for up to three days before you pull 'em out to roast. Get the recipe.

9. Creamy Baked Greek Chicken Risotto

10. 5-Ingredient Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili


12. Sheet Pan Chicken "Stir-Fry"

Eat it immediately or divide into bowls for your weekday lunches. Either way, it only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish. Get the recipe.

13. Fuji Apple Mixed Greens Salad with Chicken

15. Panko Chicken Stuffed with Apples, Cheese, and Spinach


16. Garlic-and-Maple-Glazed Chicken with Sweet Potato Hash

Yup, that's maple syrup. It's mixed with garlic, olive oil, and balsamic to make these chicken breasts just sweet enough. Get the recipe.

17. Perfect-Every-Time Chicken Breasts with Garlic and Paprika

This recipe's endlessly customizable: Use your own spice blend or pour on a sauce; scatter your favorite veggies around the breasts so they roast, too, or use them to top a pretty salad. Get the recipe.
