Bung chicken thighs in a plastic bag with some soy, honey, ginger, garlic, chilli and orange juice. Marinade overnight/while you're at work. Roast for about 45 mins, serve with rice and steamed Asian greens

Go on the BBC Good Food Website and browse all the chicken recipes; lots of good ideas there.

Also consider different bits of chicken. I used to only ever buy s/b chicken breasts but have recently been using lots of recipes that use skin-on, bone-in chicken. It's much more flavourful and also very thrifty.

My favourite recipes are Nigella's buttermilk chicken (from Nigella Express) and Tana Ramsay's lemon chicken stew (Home Made). I also love this recipe. So yummy, so easy and very economical.

Here are some of my favourite chicken meals : )

This chicken and bacon casserole is very tasty

tyne-teas.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/chicken-and-bacon-casserole.html

and this marinade is similar to tandoori and livens up chicken drumsticks or thighs

I know you said chiecken kebabs was one of the things you were trying to break from, but this is a pretty tasty marinade too and lovely in pita bread with crunchy pieces of pepper and some yoghurt

Grilled chicken and this salsa salad is great in tortilla wraps

Rice with chicken, chorizo and prawns is quick and tasty

And the tomato sauce from this is good with grilled chicken, roast or boiled potatoes and green veg

get a chicken and some poultry shears and teach yourself to spatchcock....it's super easy tbh, just a snippety snip! :D

the chicken cooks so much more quickly and is just delish!

I often put a bed of veg, random selection of peppers, onions, fennel, new potatoes/sweet potatoes/chopped potatoes, butternut squash, cherry tomatoes....really if you can eat it just go with it!!

Season the veg, and shake over some olive oil, set the spatchcocked chicken on top, season/oil that too, maybe some herbs over and then into a hot oven and generally it'll be done in an hour.

let it sit and rest and then serve with salad, or couscous.
