5 easy (and family-friendly) chicken recipes to get you out of a dinner rut

Bored of cooking the same dinners every week?

Trine Jensen-Burke

Feel like you are always cooking the same handful of meals on regular rotation?

Yeah, us too.

Time to change things up, we think, and when it comes to family dinners, few things will beat the humble chicken.

These five seriously delicious recipes are all easy to make, packs a punch when it comes to flavour and will go down a treat with even the pickiest of eaters, we think:

1. Grilled Lemon Chicken Flatbread Wraps

You can cook the chicken for these on the barbecue outside if the weather permits, or just use the cooker inside – either way, they are so easy to make, and beyond yummy too.

2. Garlic Basil Chicken with Tomato Butter Sauce

We have found our new favourite. And the best bit? The kids will love it too.

3. Spicy Yogurt Marinated Chicken Legs

So tasty, you’ll never buy shop-bought raost chicken again.

4. Baked Coconut Chicken Tenders
