What to serve with baked chicken breast?

The possibilities are endless and this chicken is delicious with just about anything.

We love mashed potatoes and green beans. It is simple but delicious.

Rice is also tasty. We actually keep this in the freezer so it is so easy on busy nights.

Learn how to freeze rice and you can make this meal even easier. I love to grab the rice from the freezer and we all can enjoy a really easy meal.

We do this for lots of meals and it helps put together a quick meal. If you are not freezing rice, it is such a time saver.

Sometimes we also add a simple side salad or learn how to steam broccoli in the microwave for another easy side idea.

This meal is also good with asparagus. This oven roasted asparagus is a family favorite and it is very simple and quick to make.

Ideas for oven baked chicken recipe leftovers!

This chicken is delicious diced or cut into strips and served on top of a salad. I actually intentionally make extra just to have leftovers!

We love to enjoy this another night for dinner. It is such a time saver to cook once and eat twice (or more).

This makes a great dinner idea for another night or for lunches during the week.

You can also use the leftover chicken to make quesadillas. We actually do this with the leftover chicken and rice and mix it together. This is perfect for Mexican Monday!

Our family really loves this chicken so we have to cook extra to have leftovers. You might have to do the same. 🙂

Make sure you have a 9×13 pan. 

You also will need a nice 9×13 baking dish  to bake the chicken in.  Amazon has some on sale right now!

I also like to make baked chicken when we are taking a meal to someone. Whether it be someone recovering from surgery or that just had a baby, this is an easy meal to prepare.

I also find it is a nice change from the traditional casseroles and baked chicken is often a welcome change. 🙂

You can use one of these foil pans and clean up is a breeze. Sometimes we even use these pans on crazy busy nights. Less clean up!

It really isn’t any more trouble to make 2 pans of this. We often will do just that so we have leftovers.

I can’t tell you the times I have been temped to head toward a drive thru but remembered I had leftover baked chicken in the fridge. This is so nice and you can easily throw together a salad or wrap with the leftovers.

Not only will you save money but everyone gets to enjoy a delicious meal. It is a win for everyone!

Other ideas to try:

Our family loves boneless skinless chicken breasts. We have also used chicken tenderloin. The kids love that too.

You can try using boneless skinless chicken thighs. The seasoning makes this option tasty and does not disappoint.

Plus, I have found that by using what is on sale at the grocery store or already in the freezer helps the grocery budget greatly!

We are big fans of using what we have or can grab on sale at the grocery store. By cooking like this, it really helps me to save money on groceries. 

It is a huge help to our budget. I cut our grocery bill by 50% off by following these 8 Tips for for Saving Money on Groceries by Menu Planning!

    I made this recipe and my son loved it. Can you make this recipe with a turkey breast instead of chicken? My son liked it so much he wants the turkey breast cooked like this instead of a regular turkey.

  2. I haven’t tried that yet, but I think it would be delicious! Let us know how it turns out. Thank you!

  3. I tried this recipe using turkey breast instead of chicken and added some of my own seasoning along with yours. It was delicious and my son loved it. I also had to change the cook time to 30 min. per pound. Thank you for giving me great ideas!!!
