35 Easy Fall Chicken Recipes We Can’t Get Enough Of

1. Campbell’s Chicken Pot Pie

Is there anything more comforting than chicken pot pie? It’s the first thing I crave when the temperature drops. 

I love the warm, flaky, golden-brown crust. And the creamy sauce and tender chicken and veggie chunks are also superb. 

It’s hands down my favorite fall chicken recipe. With only six ingredients, it isn’t hard to make, either.

2. Progresso Chicken Noodle Soup 

I wasn’t lying; chicken pot pie is the ultimate fall comfort food. Nothing else even comes close…except maybe chicken noodle soup.

After all, what was your mom’s go-to dinner when you caught your first fall cold?  

This copycat recipe for Progresso chicken noodle soup is one of the best. And as long as you store the noodles separately, it freezes well, too. 

Scrumptious and Satisfying White Chicken Chili with Cream and Herbs

3. White Chicken Chili

I adore chili! It’s filling, loaded with goodness, and super budget-friendly.

Typically though, chili features beef and beans. But this version is wonderfully light and jam-packed with tender chicken.

It’s just as satisfying but makes a nice change from the usual tomato-heavy chili recipes.

4. Creamy Spinach Artichoke Chicken

On the hunt for something rich, delicious, and decadent? Then you’re in luck because that’s precisely what you’ll get from this recipe. 

It’s quick and shouldn’t take longer than 20 minutes to put together. Still, the flavors and textures are insanely good.

The chicken is juicy and tender, and the sauce is creamy and flavorful. It’s also low in carbs and high in protein and taste. 

5. Chicken Piccata

This easy chicken piccata is a fantastic way to introduce someone to capers. It’s simple yet elegant and remarkably flavorful. 

The lemon is zippy, where the capers give it a nice salty zing. Serve it over some pasta or rice for a meal everyone will love. 

6. Beer Can Chicken

Beer can chicken is the ideal summer chicken dish. Luckily, it tastes just as yummy in the fall.

It’s a juicy, robust chicken dinner that’ll impress your guests, no matter the season.

And hey, you don’t have to use beer if you don’t like it. I’ve used all kinds of soda (cola, orange, lemon-lime), and it all works well.

Bonus: Standing around a hot grill is a great way to keep warm when the weather’s cool. But you can always use the oven!

7. Easy Chicken and Sausage Cassoulet

Casseroles are one of my favorite parts of fall. So, spoiler alert: this won’t be the last one on the list.

This one is exceptionally hearty and full of smoky, savory flavors.

It’s herby, spicy, and tastes like something you’d order from a New Orleans soul food joint.

8. Marry Me Chicken

If you’re in a loving relationship, this dish is just what you need to make your boo feel special.

That said, it’s so incredibly tasty, it’s ideal for dinner parties or Sunday dinners with the family.

It’s a flawless blend of herby flavor, creamy sauce, sun-dried tomatoes, and chicken.

Did I mention there’s also cheese, bacon, and pasta? Oh yeah, this one is a must-make.

9. Bourbon Chicken

Do you enjoy Asian chicken dishes with sweet and sticky sauces? If so, you’ll love bourbon chicken.

You can make it from scratch in 35 minutes, and it’s so much better than takeout. 

It’s full of robust, earthy flavors and topped with scallions. Everyone who tries it will love it. 

10. Harvest Chicken Skillet with Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts

Packed with fall favorites, this nutrient-rich skillet meal is great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

It’s a paleo and Whole30-friendly meal you can make in a single skillet. It’s also colorful, herby, and filling.

Ingredients like sweet potatoes, cinnamon, and apples, are hard to resist. So much so, even the kids will as for more.

11. Panera Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Most people go to Panera for the sandwiches and baked goods. But their soups are some of the best around.

And this chicken and wild rice recipe is my all-time fave! It’s creamy, comforting, and chock-full of chunky, flavorful ingredients. 

Try it on a cold, rainy night, and you won’t be sorry.

12. Farmhouse Chicken Cornbread Casserole

Do you enjoy thick, bready casseroles? Then you gotta try this farmhouse chicken and cornbread casserole! 

It’s down-home, southern cooking at its finest.

Think about the best corn casserole you’ve ever had. Now imagine it with juicy chicken.

Pretty delish, huh? 

13. Moo Shu Chicken

Here’s another tasty Asian chicken dish that’s so much better than takeout.

It’s a colorful, savory, earthy meal with a sticky, delicious sauce. And it’s best served with colorful fried rice!

Ready in just over 30 minutes, it’s the kind of easy dinner that’s ideal for busy weeknights.

14. Swiss Chicken Stuffing Casserole

Stove Top stuffing is a staple in my house. We just can’t get enough of it.

However, we rarely eat it straight from the box. Instead, we use it in recipes like this one. 

It has all the fluffy, sagey delectableness you’d hope for. But there’s also cheese, chicken, and cream of chicken soup.


15. Oven Roasted Chicken with Lemon Rosemary Garlic Butter 

Casseroles, soups, and Asian dishes are excellent. Sometimes, though, you just want chicken – plain and simple. 

Sorry but there’s nothing plain and simple about this oven-roasted chicken. It is plain and simple to make, though. 

You’ll need a whole chicken, onions, lemons, butter, garlic, white wine, and rosemary. The result is just short of heavenly. 

It’s juicy chicken with crisp, well-seasoned skin that even health nuts can’t resist.

Paula Deen Chicken and Dumplings

16. Paula Deen Chicken and Dumplings

Chicken and dumplings is warm, comforting, and deliciously nostalgic.

Every bite is loaded with rich, creamy broth, tender chicken, and dense dumplings. It’s the kind of hearty dish I could eat every day.

And this Paula Deen recipe is my go-to! You’ll use frozen dumplings and leftover rotisserie chicken, so it’s crazy-easy to whip up.

17. Chicken Pot Pie Casserole

In the mood for chicken pot pie but need enough to feed a crowd? This chicken pot pie casserole is the answer.

It’s saucy, buttery, and overflowing with chicken and veggies. 

And don’t worry; there’s still plenty of crust. It just happens to come in the form of fluffy, golden-brown Grands biscuits.

18. Oven Roasted Balsamic Chicken Thighs

These balsamic chicken thighs taste just as impressive as any whole roasted chicken – they just take far less time to cook!

Simultaneously sweet, tangy, and earthy, you’ll adore the robust garlic and mushroom base.

Meanwhile, the balsamic glaze adds a wallop of brightness. It’s a unique and wonderful combination. 

19. Chicken Divan

Chicken divan is the perfect dish for a quick and easy weeknight meal.

It’s simple to prepare, and the results are always incredible. Plus, it’s a great way to use up any leftover chicken. 

Cheesy and full of crunchy broccoli florets, it’s pretty healthy and ridiculously filling, too. What more could you ask for?

20. One Pan Garlic Roasted Chicken and Baby Potatoes

I’m all about one-pan meals. The less clean-up I have to do, the better.

And when they taste this good, well, that’s just a bonus. 

The recipe uses fewer than ten ingredients – most are spices and seasonings – and both the chicken and potatoes are perfectly seasoned. 

Serve this with leafy greens for an easy, gluten-free meal.

21. Applebee’s Three Cheese Chicken Penne

I’m about to say something that’ll shock Applebee’s lovers: this copycat recipe is better than the original!

The first time I tried this dish at Applebee’s, I wasn’t impressed. I didn’t hate it; I just found it seriously bland.

Although, I did think it had lots of potential. So, I came home, experimented, and made it better.

Trust me, whether you love or hate Applebee’s version, you’ll love this recipe.

22. Za’atar Roasted Chicken Breast

If you’ve never had za’atar chicken, you’re in for a treat. It’s phenomenal.

And since you can find za’atar at most stores, it’s easy to make, too.

The spice mix is a Middle Eastern blend of thyme, oregano, sesame seeds, and more.

It’s the perfect combination of salty, savory, and earthy. 

Bang Bang Chicken on White Bowl

23. Bang Bang Chicken

Spicy, crunchy, and oh-so-addictive, this bang bang chicken recipe is a staple in my house!

You’ll need gochujang for the sauce, which is a scrummy Korean chili paste. It’s available in most larger supermarkets or Asian food stores.

It’s pretty intense, so this dish will have quite a lot of heat. But the mayonnaise, honey, and sweet chili sauce mellow it out nicely.

24. Balsamic Fig Glazed Chicken

Sweet and fruity aren’t words you often hear describing chicken. But they’re perfect for this one.

The balsamic and fig glaze on this chicken is outrageously good. You’ll want to add it to pork chops, ham, and any other meat you prepare. 

Add gorgonzola and walnuts on top for an even tastier treat. 

25. Chipotle Chicken

Have you ever wondered how Chipotle gets their chicken so perfectly perfect? Well, wonder no longer!

This recipe gives you everything you need to prepare the peppers, make the marinade, and grill the chicken. 

Just remember that some of the ingredients need to sit for several hours. So don’t wait until the day of to start working on it. 

26. 3-Ingredient Orange Chicken

Did you know you can make the world’s tastiest orange sauce with just three ingredients? It’s true!

You’ll need BBQ sauce, orange marmalade, and soy sauce. Add that to fried chicken breasts, and voila!

It’s an excellent choice on a cool fall evening. 

27. King Ranch Chicken Casserole

Creamy, cheesy, and incredibly meaty, this chicken casserole is always a hit in my house.

It’s spicy and full of peppers and tomatoes. So try it if you want to put a south-of-the-border spin on the classic chicken casserole. 

28. Chicken Fricassée (French Creamy Chicken Stew)

So many people are terrified of French cooking. Luckily, not all French recipes are challenging to make.

Chicken fricassée, for example, is a simple stew featuring chicken simmered in a creamy sauce with mushrooms and onions.

It’s perfect for cozy fall or winter nights. 

29. Rotel Chicken Spaghetti

Need a tasty pasta dish to add to your weekly dinner rotation? Rotel chicken spaghetti is the ideal choice. 

This recipe is simple to follow and uses ingredients you likely already have on hand.

Add extra jalapeños if you want things extra spicy!

30. Buffalo Chicken Wings

Okay, okay, I know chicken wings are usually an appetizer. But with a side salad and a generous helping of sweet potato fries, they make one tasty fall dinner.

I mean, they’re meaty, spicy, and always fun to eat. So why not make a big old batch and dive in with the family?

31. Creamy Parmesan Chicken and Spinach Tortellini

Here’s a 30-minute meal that tastes like it comes from a five-star restaurant. 

It features garlicky, herby chicken and tender, cheese-stuffed tortellini. There’s also baby spinach, a decadent, creamy sauce, and plenty of Parmesan. 

It’ll be a hit no matter the occasion.

32. No-Peek Chicken

Want to make dinner with five ingredients and just ten minutes of work? You can with this effortless recipe.

All you’ll need is chicken, rice, and cream of mushroom and celery soups. (And some water, salt, and pepper, of course.)

No-peek chicken takes just 10 minutes to prepare, and the oven does the rest. 

The rice base is fluffy and creamy and will melt in your mouth. Meanwhile, the chicken is juicy and incredible, with a perfectly crispy skin. 

33. Spaghetti Squash Boats with Chicken

Stuffed peppers are yummy. But have you ever had stuffed spaghetti squash? It’s a game-changer!

You can fill them with whatever you like, of course. But for this recipe, you’ll use chicken, bacon, spinach, cheese, and more. 

Each one is an earthy, herby, and supremely cheesy treat.

34. Applebee’s Fiesta Lime Chicken

The ingredients list for this copycat Applebee’s recipe is long. But don’t let that scare you away!

You can have this zesty lime chicken ready in about 35 minutes. 

Serve it on a bed of crushed tortillas or corn chips for extra crunch. 

35. Melt In Your Mouth Chicken 

It’s hard to believe something with so few ingredients could taste so good.

Luckily, this spectacular recipe proves you don’t need a million herbs and spices to make chicken shine.

Besides the chicken, you’ll need mayo, Parmesan, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Somehow, that combo makes a succulent chicken dish that really does melt in your mouth.
