Chicken and Vegetable Recipes

Sweet Potato, Chicken, and Spinach in Browned Butter
There's no dinner pairing quite as classic as chicken and vegetables. That's why we decided to collect our favorite 60-minute-or-less recipes showcasing the two. Our delicious dinners include pairings such as chicken and broccoli, chicken-veggie casseroles, and chicken salads.

Thai Chicken

Talk about a dinner winner: With protein, vegetables, and whole grains all in one speedy package, this meal won't leave you scrambling to make other side dishes. Coconut, soy, peanut, sesame, and sriracha are the five flavor powerhouses that make these chicken and vegetable flatbreads stand out.

Chicken Salad with Creamy Tarragon-Shallot Dressing

Similar to a nicoise salad made with chicken instead of tuna, this freshly arranged salad is as delicious as it is beautiful. If you prefer, trade asparagus for the green beans and cook your egg any style you like (we adore sunny-side up in this dish!).

Moroccan Chicken with Couscous

Tomatoes, zucchini, and chicken thighs get the Moroccan treatment by way of a warm spice blend featuring cumin, orange peel, turmeric, ginger, and more. Pile this skillet chicken and vegetable recipe on a bed of couscous, currants, and pine nuts for a meal that will transport you to another land.

One-Pan Chicken Flatbreads

Top a flatbread with a schmear of hummus, some lemon-pepper grilled chicken, and a Greek salad for an on-the-go chicken entree that’s fresher and tastier than a store-bought sub. Enjoy with a side of carrot sticks and pepper strips to scoop up any hummus that sneaks out of the wrap. (No bite gets left behind!)

Chicken, Broccoli, and Farro Casserole

Picky eaters will see a cheesy, carb-laden casserole, but you'll know that several slim swaps make this a well-balanced chicken dinner. Farro, mushrooms, and broccoli crank up the fiber, while a sauce of Greek yogurt and light mayo mimics the rich texture of commonly used condensed soups.

Picadillo-Style Chicken Taco Salad

Bored by chicken breasts? Try this ground chicken-topped taco salad instead. You might not see them under the spicy taco meat, tortillas, and cheese, but tomatoes, potatoes, and green onions are hiding in this healthy supper recipe, too.

Chicken and Avocado Lettuce Wraps

With 29 grams of filling protein and just 12 grams of carbs, these 30-minute chicken lettuce wraps are a time-crunched dieter’s dream. For even more veggie goodness, add a spoonful of pico de gallo or salsa to each wrap before serving.

Balsamic Chicken and Vegetables

A drizzle of sweet balsamic dressing gives an unexpected burst of flavor to the chicken and asparagus in our one-skillet stir-fry. Slivered carrots and fresh tomatoes fill each serving with loads of healthful nutrients.

Basil-Tomato Chicken Skillet

Turn to your trusty skillet to whip up our mouthwatering chicken-veggie dinner combo. The garlicky chicken pieces, wilted spinach, and cherry tomatoes take just 25 minutes to prepare and will satisfy the entire family.

Chicken Alfredo Cauliflower Rice Bake

Slash the carbs in your supper by swapping rice for cauliflower florets pulsed in a food processor until they resemble the itty-bitty grains. We combine the veggie "rice" with leftover or rotisserie chicken, spinach, and light Alfredo sauce for this sneaky skinny casserole.

Chicken with Apple-Vegetable Slaw Stir-Fry

This one-pan recipe tastes complex enough to be a fussy dish, but it actually takes just 40 minutes start to finish! Chicken thighs, mushrooms, cabbage, asparagus, and apples cook up in a flash in a hot wok. Speaking of hot, tailor this dish to your spice preference by adjusting the amount of crushed red pepper.

Pan-Roasted Chicken with Brussels Sprouts and Apples

Lightly seasoned chicken and Brussels sprouts make the perfect base for the maple syrup sauce that covers this chicken dinner. Skillet-seared apple slices provide a juicy counterpart to the sweet-yet-savory meal.

Basil, Chicken, and Tomatoes

Snag a deli chicken, a bunch of basil, and a couple produce aisle favorites to assemble this heart-healthy 20-minute meal. Avocado and olive oil ensure that each low-carb serving still satisfies.

Pesto Penne with Deli-Roasted Chicken

Red sweet peppers, chicken, and broccoli add a hearty mix of nutrients and protein to our pesto penne recipe. Purchased pesto, red sweet peppers, and deli chicken mean this chicken and vegetables recipe comes together in just 20 minutes.

Chimichurri Chicken and Green Beans

Chimichurri, a bright sauce made from parsley, garlic, and red pepper, ties together the grilled chicken in this dinner recipe with the lemony green beans on the side. The best part of the chicken and vegetables recipe? It takes only about 30 minutes to put together.

Chicken and Lemon-Broccoli Alfredo

Add bright citrusy flavor to broccoli and chicken breasts with lemon slices in our one-skillet dinner recipe. Purchased Alfredo sauce adds a creamy finish.

Basque Chicken

Try this signature dish of the Basque region of Spain without stepping foot outside of your hometown. Chicken, olives, and peppers are the fundamental building blocks, and we spice things up even more with garlic, savory, and thyme.

Ham- and Asparagus-Stuffed Chicken

Crisp-tender asparagus, juicy and tender chicken, and savory sauce-smothered ham fill every bite of our stuffed chicken recipe. Serve the main meal alongside a light salad of mixed greens to finish.

Chicken, Tomato, and Cucumber Dinner Salad

Transform your favorite poultry into a tasty Mediterranean-inspired salad by pairing chicken tenders with feta cheese, veggies, and olives. A light dressing of white wine vinegar and thyme tops the recipe.

Chicken with Summer Squash

Juicy grape tomatoes and tender summer squash turn purchased roasted chicken into a full-meal affair. Place the chicken and vegetables atop a bed of fresh arugula leaves for a complete dinner recipe with a whopping 42 grams of protein.

Chicken, Asparagus, and Bacon Skillet

Savory bacon, tender asparagus, and mouthwatering chicken combine to create a delicious skillet dinner that's surprisingly easy to make. And because it rings in at under 300 calories per serving, the chicken and vegetables recipe is as healthy as it is easy.

Pasta with Chicken, Spinach, and Tomatoes

Turn to light, fresh ingredients for tonight's dinner with our chicken and vegetable pasta recipe. Spice up the salad with a homemade orange-Dijon mustard dressing and feta cheese.
