6 Delicious Chicken Dinners To Make This Week

If you’re looking for new chicken recipes that are packed full of flavor, are easy to make, and make use of your HexClad pans, then look no further than these delicious chicken dinners. Head out to the grill to make a barbecue pepper and chicken wings situation that brings the heat or stir up a grilled chicken and orzo salad that’s equally at home on a picnic blanket or as part of a dinner party spread. We’ve got ideas for grilling chicken, seared chicken, and fried chicken to make planning your weeknight meals easier than ever.



Grilled Chicken & Orzo Salad

We’re calling it now: this chicken pasta salad is going to be the dish of the summer. Yes, it takes a bit of chopping and measuring, but the work is worth it. After marinating the chicken in a garlic- and oregano-infused yogurt mixture, you’ll quickly grill it in your HexClad Hybrid BBQ Grill Pan and then toss it with a confetti of Greek-inspired ingredients like kalamata olives, cucumber, feta, dill, red onion, and parsley. Picture horiatiki–aka Greek salad–meets pasta salad. All that’s left to do is add a side of fries and a dash of the Aegean.

Crispy Sesame Chicken Burger

Is there anything better than fried chicken? Maybe, if it’s sandwiched in a burger! To make these craveable chicken burgers, you’ll start by pounding chicken thighs and coating them in a sesame-flour mixture to create a crust that will fry up extra crispy and craggy. Then, quickly fry them in your 3.3QT Hybrid Deep Sauté Pan and stir together a cabbage slaw. Layered on toasted brioche buns, the result is something dangerously good.

Skewerless Chicken Kebabs

For those who find skewering pieces of raw chicken a bit of a pain but love the flavor of tender chunks of grilled chicken, enter the skewerless chicken kebab. You’ll still get all the delicious char but with way less work (and no raw chicken hands). You’ll start by tossing the chicken in a spiced marinade. While the meat infuses with flavor, you’ll grill classic kebab vegetables like red onion, bell peppers, and cherry tomatoes in your HexClad Hybrid BBQ Grill Pan. All that’s left to do is grill the meat in the same pan and serve everything with warm pita and a quick garlicky yogurt sauce.

Mezcal-Marinated Chicken Fajitas

There are fajitas and then there are mezcal-marinated fajitas, and we’re pretty sure you know which ones are better. To make this rendition of classic chicken fajitas, you’ll spike the traditional fajita marinade with mezcal (or tequila if you prefer it). Don’t skip the kneading step, which makes the meat extra tender. After cooking bell peppers and red onion in your HexClad Hybrid 12" Fry Pan until soft and tender, you’ll quickly cook the chicken in the same pan (read: super simple cleanup). Serve the skillet tableside with the go-to fajita fixings like warm flour tortillas, cilantro, queso fresco, sour cream, and guacamole.

Grilled Sweet Honey Glazed Chicken Wings & Shishito Peppers

You’ll never have to settle for a bland chicken wing again now that these sweet and spicy grilled chicken wings are in your life. The chicken gets marinated in Bachan’s Sweet Honey Japanese Barbecue Sauce (or another favorite barbecue sauce) for a just-sweet-enough glaze that plays perfectly with the spicy shishito peppers. Serve it all over white rice to make an easy dinner, or serve the chicken and peppers on their own for an appetizer.

Chicken Parm Sandwich

Who needs to trek to an Italian restaurant when you can make chicken parm sandwiches Nonna would be proud of right in your own kitchen? After blitzing up a quick basil pesto and simmering a tomato sauce, you’ll bread and fry chicken cutlets to golden perfection. This all gets sandwiched between slices of sourdough bread and topped with melty mozzarella cheese. P.S. If you want a quicker route to your chicken parm, use store bought tomato sauce and pesto.
