If you love bone-in chicken breast recipes this is the ultimate list for you. Cooking chicken breast on the bone ensures an extra juicy and tender result and cooking the meat with the chicken skin still intact with seals in the juices. You can cook it in so many different, delicious ways too.
Don’t be shy, put your cooking skills to the test with these amazingly delicious and tender bone-in chicken breast recipes to share at the dinner table. Depending on the chicken recipe, sometimes boneless skinless chicken breasts can be dry and tough. You also will want to try my collection of chicken quarter recipes.
But to ensure a juicy chicken breast use skin-on, bone-in, split chicken breasts. I always say that fat equals flavor and the extra little bit of fat from the skin on the chicken is well worth it to get the best chicken breast meal.
