These healthy and easy chicken recipes are the perfect weeknight meal.

With summer quickly approaching, the weather warming, and beach season near, it’s time to lighten our meals and leave the hot, baked goods of winter behind — like lasagna and beef stew. (Not that a meatball now and then isn’t incredible, but it might be time to pair proteins with some lighter salads and seasonal ingredients.)

An easy way to do this is to choose a lean protein to serve for the main course. Fish and seafood are excellent choices, but today we’ve decided to round up some of our favorite chicken recipes (skinless and boneless) to help you make almost everyone’s go-to meat.

Check out the recipes below and happy cooking!
