30-Minute (or Less) Chicken Dinner Recipes Perfect for Busy Weeknights

Serve an inspired weeknight dinner that comes together fast using our quick chicken recipes. We’re sharing favorites—salad, soup, pasta, and more, that come together rapidly but taste top notch. Who needs takeout when you’ve got these fast, flavorful recipes to add to your repertoire? They’re sure to become your new go-tos when you want to make chicken for dinner, and in no time at all.

Whether you prefer chicken breasts, cutlets, or chicken thighs, we have the fast recipes you need. Try making a delicious Chicken-Teriyaki Noodle Bowl with chicken cutlets. A simple mixture of soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, and vegetable oil does double duty as a marinade for the chicken and a sauce for udon noodles and vegetables. An any night chicken sandwich gets Thai flavor in this grilled-chicken baguette recipe; using a hearty, crusty baguette for the base instead of sandwich bread provides a sturdy base for colorful, flavorful ingredients including Masaman-curry paste and sweet creamy mango. We also suggest trying our Green-Chile Chicken Burgers—they just so happen to be one of our all-time favorite ways to use ground chicken. On a night when time is extra, extra tight, we recommend an easy and elegant dinner with quick-cooking chicken cutlets served with arugula, lemon wedges, and long curls of Parmigiano-Reggiano—it’s a restaurant-level dinner that comes together so fast.

There’s comfort aplenty here, too, which is just what you need after a long workday in one easy bowl of Greek-Chicken One-Pan Pasta, Lemony-Pesto Chicken Soup, or Chicken Puttanesca with Orzo.

Go ahead and set your timer for 30 minutes, then let the family know that a delicious, quick chicken dinner will be on the table soon.
