If you can’t decide between chicken and steak, why not both? These chicken and steak recipes are sure to satisfy whatever you’re craving.
No dinner law states that you have to settle for just one protein.
Mixing proteins is also a great way to include indulgent red meat without going overboard.
Adding chicken to red meat helps fill you up faster and isn’t as sinful as a red meat meal.
Gather round, indecisive friends, and check out these delicious chicken and steak recipes the whole family will devour.
1. Grilled Lime Chicken & Steak with Herb & Arugula Salad
The marinade for the meat packs this salad with flavor.
While you still marinate the chicken and steak before it hits the grill, you also marinate your proteins afterward.
Take your meat off the grill and continue to marinate them in the fridge overnight to pack a powerful lime 1-2 punch.
It’s a great way to meal prep. The next day, pop those flavor bombs out of the fridge and top them on a bed of arugula.
No salad dressing is needed!
2. Coogan’s Chicken & Beef Irish Stew
This recipe is a little heavy on the ingredients but well worth the extra effort!
It’s insanely hearty and satisfying, so it’s perfect for a gloomy winter day.
The chicken and steak play well with hearty root veggies for a satisfying meal in a bowl.
While it calls for filet mignon, you can use any cut of beef to infuse beef flavors.
3. Chicken and Steak Fajitas
If there are chicken and steak fajitas on a Mexican restaurant’s menu, you’d better believe I’m ordering them.
The key to capturing the essence of restaurant-style fajitas lies in a good marinade and thinly-sliced pieces of meat.
The marinade is rich and savory with an added kick from red pepper flakes.
Toss your proteins in a freezer back, and let them absorb all of those beautiful flavors.
To make this ahead of time, store your protein and cut up your veggies. Store them in separate bags, and thaw in the fridge as needed.

Put those saute pans away and let your Crockpot do all the work. This beef and chicken stew is the perfect winter meal.

Once they’re cooked, toss your delectably fried morsels in a honey garlic sauce and serve them over rice.
8. Chicken and Roast Beef Muffuletta
The classic New Orleans muffuletta uses cured meat, which is delicious but a caloric nightmare.
Swapping out cured meats for something a little healthier is a great way to deliver classic New Orleans flavors without needing to unbutton your jeans.
This recipe calls for a tart and salty olive salad to capture the salty flavors of cured meat.
Pair it with cuts of beef and chicken, and stuff it into muffuletta rolls.
Wrap the sandwiches in plastic wrap and allow all flavors to fuse in the fridge.
9. Chicken and Chipped Beef Recipe (Company Chicken)

It’s fast, easy, and very few can resist this dinner.
10. Super Simple Steak and Chicken Kabob
Summer isn’t complete without at least one kabob meal.
Using steak and chicken is a great way to add flavor to this super simple but tasty dish.
