5 Easy Chicken Recipes

If you are a parent and cook at home daily, it's not always easy to think of what to cook.When I had a store, customers, mostly mothers, would come in and look around the store for inspiration, when I asked them if they needed help, they would say in frustration, that they had no idea of what to cook anymore. I gladly gave them some suggestions, and made sure that I had some recipe books handy, that they could look through.
