What can I do with a chicken?

Chicken is so versatile as a meat, there's so many things you can make with chicken and also lots of ways of preparing and cooking it. We look at some of the different cooking techniques so you can choose how to cook your chicken in the best way for your meal. Plus we've suggested some chicken recipes to try out that utilise those techniques.

Baked chicken

Baking is a great way to cook your chicken because it helps to boost your iron intake and is a rich source of protein. Baked chicken is also a lot healthier than fried because it contains less oil and fat. 

Grilled chicken

Grilling is another healthy alternative to cooking chicken. Grilled chicken is great with salads and inside wraps as it contains less fat, and the meat also retains nutrients better. 

Pan Fried chicken

Pan fried chicken is very easy and quick to make, and is delicious when seasoned! This is a popular method for cooking chicken, as you can create a tasty meal in practically no time at all. Why not have a go at cooking our Teriyaki Chicken with a Colourful Salad, for a quick lunch which is both healthy and delicious!

Braised chicken

Braised chicken is perfect for Autumn and Winter months as you can create scrumptious stews and casseroles. Braising is simply cooking in a small amount of liquid over a long period of time, otherwise known as slow cooking. If you don’t have a slow cooker, our One Pot Chicken and Couscous is the ideal recipe for days when you’re busy and want to leave something to cook for a while.

BBQ chicken

BBQ chicken is extremely popular throughout the summer months when you want to spend time enjoying the warm weather outside with family and friends! BBQ chicken can be seasoned and marinated in a variety of ways to create delicious burgers, drumsticks and skewers to name a few! Our Fruity BBQ Chicken Skewers are marinated in Kikkoman Teriyaki BBQ-Sauce Honey and are perfect for summer barbecues!
