Chicken is the most widely consumed meat in the world. The average American consumes more than 90 pounds of chicken each year. 

But did you know that in the 1800s, chicken was more costly than other types of meat? However, during World War II, a lack of beef and pork in the United States led to many consumers opting for chicken despite the cost. Now, delicious and affordable chicken recipes are ubiquitous and loved by everybody. 

Chicken recipes are popular for a lot of reasons. They're affordable, simple to make, available locally, and versatile enough to go with almost any sauce or meal. Plus, you can buy chicken anywhere! Use Farmstead’s grocery delivery service to get your fresh chicken and other ingredients delivered quickly. 

Here are some of the top chicken recipes you should master to wow your housemates and guests. 

Easy Chicken Recipes You Should Learn

Chicken parmigiana is made with bread crumbs-coated chicken breasts covered with tomato sauce and cheese. Cooking this meal can be tricky because the chicken could come out dry or not flavorful enough, but don't worry. We've prepared a simple chicken parmigiana recipe that’s easy to perfect.

Butter Chicken

Indian butter chicken, though one of the best-loved easy chicken recipes, can be a little complicated to make.

Serve it over rice with a bit of cilantro to temper the spice.
