We all know about the weeknight dinner rut…but so many of us experience a lesser mentioned rut when it comes to Shabbat cooking. We ALL go through it. Week after week, we make almost identical meals that everyone enjoys, but after a while it can get old. While we have so many Shabbat recipes to choose from, today, we’re focusing on the one dish that makes an appearance at everyone’s table- chicken.

Below are 46 amazing chicken recipes that will inspire you to reach for a new spice, add in a different veggie, or introduce you to a different cut. There’s seriously something for everyone.

Plus as a bonus, the Kosher.com staff stepped in to give our personal recommendations. These are recipes we love and hope will enhance your Shabbat menus.
