With its affordable price and high protein count, chicken makes a great weeknight dinner. However, skip the casserole and rich main dish dinners and focus on clean-eating recipes that will be enjoyed by everyone. Fresh ingredients accompany grilled chicken, whole grains cook as a chicken roasts in the oven, and shredded chicken adds a perfect punch of protein on top of a crisp salad. The flavors and combinations with chicken dinners are endless, especially with clean-eating ingredients.
Pineapple Chicken Kebabs with Cilantro-Lime Slaw
A sweet-tangy-spicy glaze of Asian pantry staples caramelizes beautifully under the broiler. To complete the meal, serve with jasmine rice tossed with sliced green onions and lime rind strips.
Maple-Mustard Roasted Chicken with Squash and Brussels Sprouts
We give the large bone-in breasts a head start in the oven so they will be perfectly cooked by the time the vegetables are done. This cut is also rather juicy; you’ll want to drain off the liquid from the pan before adding the vegetables so they can caramelize evenly. Brussels sprouts, butternut squash, and acorn squash are at their absolute best when roasted. The trick is to cut them into even pieces with a maximum surface area (halves or cubes) so they can benefit from all the direct heat. A sprinkle of hazelnuts is a fine finishing touch, but you can skip it if you like.
Spicy Buttermilk Chicken and Vegetable Kebabs
Time: 40 minutes
Get Ahead: Make the kebabs, prepare the buttermilk mixture, and make the broccoli salad a day ahead; then refrigerate.
Serve with Cheddar and Almond Broccoli Salad
Miso-Ginger Braised Chicken with Bok Choy and Barley
Serve this one-pot complete meal in shallow bowls, ladling the rich broth over the tender chicken, vegetables, and grains. We call for whole-grain hulled—sometimes labeled hull-less—barley here. Pearled barley is not ideal for this dish; while tasty, it is not a whole grain, and it would overcook as the chicken simmers. If you can’t find hulled barley, you can use wheat berries, spelt, whole-grain (not pearled) farro, or rye berries. Toasting the grains first delivers deep, malty flavor; it’s worth the extra few minutes to get that extra depth.

Sticking to low-ingredient meals helps keep your dish in check when following a clean-eating diet. This six-ingredient dish delivers big taste with minimal fuss. Start marinating the chicken in the morning to make prep time quick and easy in the afternoon. Serve the salad on a bed of bulgur for a twist on tabbouleh and a fiber boost. If parsley salad isn't your thing, try a spinach salad instead. This is the perfect clean-eating dish for summer.
Sumac Chicken with Cauliflower and Carrots
A bright citrus kick is just the thing for cold nights. This sheet pan supper gets a double dose from thin lemon slices roasted until tender, and fresh lemon juice added to a quick herb dressing that’s spooned over the finished dish. Sumac has a tart, lemony quality as well. It’s fantastic as a rub here, but is also delicious in vinaigrettes or sprinkled over dips. If you can’t find sumac, you can substitute 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind. If you want a little extra browning, pop the pan under the broiler for about 5 minutes, being careful not to let the vegetables get too dark.
Kale, Apple, and Almond Chicken Salad
Let kale become you all-purpose green. It’s tender enough for salad and sturdy enough for wilting and blending, with zero prep. Crisp, sweet-tart apple varieties (Fuji, Honeycrisp, Pink Lady) add freshness and crunch—or a juicy, sweet contrast to seared or roasted meats. Vastly underrated skinless, boneless thighs are rich and moist, perfect for stewing, grilling, or searing. Herb, lemon, and garlic vinaigrette doubles as the marinade for the chicken. This is the salad you are going to want to be packing for your lunch everyday.
Grilled Chicken Breasts with Satay Sauce
Dinner Transformation: We turn the traditional appetizer of chicken skewers and dipping sauce into a main course by spooning the satay sauce over sliced grilled chicken breasts.
Serve with Cucumber, Carrot, and Orange Salad
One-Pot Chicken with Farro
This easy dish is perfect for a casual get-together with friends. Inspired by arroz con pollo, it is hearty with satisfying complexity. Cumin, saffron, and oregano season rich chicken thighs and nutty farro as the dish simmers. If using saffron, deploy it sparingly; those tiny threads bring subtle flavor and a little color to the dish, but too much will yield a medicinal taste. Serve with a side salad to complete the meal.
Baby Kale, Butternut, and Chicken Salad
Precut vegetables, rotisserie chicken, and chopped pecans save time when throwing together a quick lunch before school or work. A homemade dressing of molasses, olive oil, cider vinegar, and Dijon mustard keeps added sugar and calories in check. One of the healthiest and nutritious vegetables, butternut squash is full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

This recipe yields a big pot of brothy soup that you can make ahead and enjoy for a couple of days; the flavor just gets better over time. You may be wary of the large amount of garlic, but keep in mind that it mellows considerably after being cooked.
Curried Chicken Thighs with Pomegranate-Mint Sauce

Talk about a company-worthy meal without much effort or a hefty price tag. Serve this easy and elegant entrée over a bed of couscous and with a side of the Steamed Broccoli with Garlic and Red Onion.
Lemony Chicken with Root Vegetables

Adams salts her chicken the night before. To keep sodium levels low, we don't use additional salt, as enough is provided by the preserved lemon. You can also use these bright, tart, briny lemons to season stews, braises, dressings, and sauces. High heat gives the chicken tasty char, and flipping the bird over partway through cooking helps the breast self-baste while the underside browns. Like other flavor-packed ingredients, a little goes a long way. If you don't have Aleppo pepper (a classic Mediterranean seasoning), sub 1/8 teaspoon each of paprika and ground red pepper. While the chicken chills overnight, uncovered, the skin dries, which helps it brown and crisp better.

How To Create a Healthy Clean Eating Menu
'Clean eating', or a clean eating diet, is a phrase/concept you have probably seen increasingly being used over the last few years. This has been coined as an expression that refers to a wholesome way of eating focused on organic foods meaning, a lifestyle based on eating natural foods like whole-grains, fruits and veggies, lean proteins, and heart healthy fats like avocados, nuts and seeds, and plant based oils.
Clean eating refers to the consumption of minimally processed foods, ethically raised, and rich in nutrients.
Since 'clean' is an arbitrary term, it does not mean foods that do not meet the criteria described above are 'dirty' or harmful to eat. Limiting certain foods that may not provide sound nutrition, and substituting these with nutrient dense foods for the bulk of your eating habits is what this lifestyle promotes.
It is possible to be too restrictive when it comes to your food choices and there’s no strong research showing that the occasional processed food is going to make or break your health.
With this in mind, when planning a clean menu, think of the following:
1. Healthy or 'clean' food doesn't mean bland and boring food
Adding healthy sauces and seasonings to your meal prep and recipes will help you add a variety factor, and also a very unique identity factor to every meal.
Don't skip the salt and pepper these two are essential to brighten the natural flavor of food. If you have a variety and combination of spices you like to use, stick to it. If it works for you, then implement it without shame.
2. Think protein, carbs, and fats for every meal
In the sports performance world (sports nutrition), dietitians have coined a well balanced plate, as a performance plate. By 'well balanced plate', I mean a dish that has all the major macronutrients present.
Granted, this will vary according to the person's size, weight, and health goals. But thinking that in each meal you have a protein, a starchy carb and vegetables, along with a fat source, will help you stay satiated and hit all your nutrient goals.
3. Always include a variety of vegetables on your meals
Increasing your vegetable consumption is a secured way to help your body get the nutrient it needs to perform optimally throughout the day.
Identifying specific vegetables that you like, roasting them with salt and pepper, and rotating them through your meals will support your clean eating habits.
4. Pick a variety of items to rotate through your week.
5. Stick to the 80/20 rule
Meaning, eat clean 80% of the time and allow yourself a break 20% of the time.
To bring that example to life, think that in any given week you may eat 21 meals. Out of those 21 meals, 16 fall on that clean 80%, giving you the ability to not be so strict on the remaining 5 meals.
Casseroles are one of my favorite dinners to cook for my family. Yes, they are easy to make and always a hit with everyone at the table.
Something magical happens when you combine meat, stock and vegetables and let them all cook together slowly until the entire dish comes together in perfect deliciousness.
Maybe it’s the long, slow cooking time or maybe it’s the combination or maybe it’s the anticipation we’ve built up from smelling it cook. I’m not sure.
This dish has successfully remained a traditional family meal for hundreds of years for one reason – It’s simply perfect!
Clean Eating Recipes – Greek Lemon Chicken
I was recently introduced to the concept of clean eating. The more I learned, the more I realized that about half of the recipes I was already making would qualify as clean eating recipes. Clean eating means different things to different people, but in it&rsquos simplest form it means eating food with a no additives and with natural ingredients. As I&rsquove been reviewing my recipes through my new clean eating lens, I have been searching for clean eating recipes with chicken. This Greek Lemon Chicken is a delicious clean eating choice that is easy to make.
If you&rsquore new to clean eating, think of it as eating food that is as close to it&rsquos original, natural state. As my clean eating mentor says, &ldquoYou should be able to pronounce every ingredient on the label of the product.&rdquo
Greek Lemon Chicken can be grilled or baked in the oven. It&rsquos full of fresh, light flavors that go well with a variety of side dishes. I like to serve it with Clean Eating Potato Pancakes and fresh vegetables.

This is more of a special-occasion chicken burger, because it requires making homemade guacamole. We'd actually love these cheesy, spicy burgers as sliders or wrapped in lettuce for an ultimate low-carb burger dinner.
