Whole 30 Chicken Dinner Recipes
Real foods. That’s what the whole 30 diet is all about. It concentrates on proteins, vegetables, fruits and a few legumes thrown in. And it’s delicious. The way foods were meant to be. Chicken is a big favorite here at Muse Ranch and one we have two or three times a week. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite recipes to share with you.
1 – Classic Roasted Chicken
Ooo, doesn’t that roasted chicken look yummy? And that tarragon pan sauce isn’t bad, either. It’s a classic recipe straight from the pages of Cook’s Illustrated and is Whole 30 perfect. Michele shared in on Nom Nom Paleo.
2 – Chicken and Kale Soup in an Instapot
I love my Instapot just for soups like this one. This is a pure, clean soup that’s wonderful on a cold evening.
3 – Chicken Fajitas is the Oven
I know fajitas and you’re thinking… “what about the tortillas?” Well, no worries, just wrap those flavorful pieces of chicken, onion, and papers in a lettuce leaf.

If you’re looking for another way to sure up those fajita flavors, then Kathi and Rachel at Laughing Spatula have you covered with this yummy chicken fajitas recipes, too.
5 – Chicken Thighs with Mushrooms, Bacon and Creamy Gravy
The men here at Muse Ranch love their dark meat so they’re always happy to see a Whole 30 chicken thigh recipes served up. And when it’s dolled up with mushrooms and bacon, they’re all… “bring it on, mama.”

7 – Chicken Salad in Avocado Boats
You know that roasted chicken you made the other night? Well, this is what you do with the leftovers. Create a delish chicken salad and fill avocado halves. Oh my goodness!
8 – Chicken Cobb Salad
Speaking of salads, I think I just figured out tonight’s dinner here at Muse Ranch…. chicken Cobb salad. It’s a favorite warm weather dinner and since it’s been unseasonably warm here (it’s 66 degrees at 6:32 am in early February!). I’m going to use my Instapot to cook up a batch of chicken breast (see recipe below).

There are so many ways to use chicken in a Whole 30 diet. Make sure you always have a few at hand and you’ll never have to worry about what to make for a healthy dinner.
