75 Chicken Recipe Ideas that will Make Meal Planning a Breeze

75 Chicken Recipe Ideas

Thank you, Zaycon, for sponsoring this post.

One of the things I really struggle with is meal planning. I’ve even bought programs that were supposed to make it easy, but never used them. Don’t do that. While I’m bad at meal planning, I try to keep our pantry and deep freeze stocked with staples. One of the ways I do this is by buying in bulk. It’s always so hard to find a great price on meats. That’s why I was so excited when I found Zaycon Foods.

Let me tell you, they are amazing!!

Navigating their website to place my order was a breeze. I ordered their case of 100 % natural chicken with no added hormones, additives or artificial ingredients, found the location closest to me, got the email confirmation, and waited until pick up day. I woke up early that morning, drove to the location, they loaded the box in my car, and sent me on my way. I never even got out of my car. It was awesome!!

As a mom with four littles, it is so hard for me to make multiple grocery store trips. Buying in bulk with Zaycon, was so easy and convenient. I will definitely do it again.

When you pick up your chicken, it’s a 40 lb box of chicken. That is a lot of chicken {if I am able to pull the pictures off of my hard drive that crashed, I’ll add the picture of the box. It’s HUGE!!}. I asked my friends for their favorite chicken recipes. My mouth was watering just checking out the links. I can’t wait to try them!

    We love chicken, will have to pin these recipes for later! That is a great idea for a big family or for when you’re hosting a party. Sounds like a great idea for busy moms too. We buy in bulk but will probably cut back more now since all my kids are soon to be moving out this year!

  8. Thank you for sharing my recipes and photo! There are so many new recipes I want to try now.
