Dairy free chicken dinner recipes are a must have if you’re avoiding milk or lactose whether due to a food allergy, preference, lifestyle or medical necessity. Chicken is an easy protein that you can get at every grocer and that is a less expensive than many other meats. I have 35+ recipes below that are tasty, tried and true and will give you lots of variety.

Important notes before you scroll!
Each recipe has a photo to show you what it will look like, and I’ve broken it down into the methods of cooking, to make it even simpler. Looking for a dairy free chicken recipe that uses the instant pot? Scroll to that section. Need a dairy free stove top chicken recipe (meaning it only uses the burners on your oven and you don’t have to bake anything)? Scroll to that section. This will become your number-one-go-to-source for making a dairy free chicken dinner whether it’s for you or a loved one.
*You’ll notice that a few recipes are listed twice–that’s because some have double directions for both instant pot and slow cooker.
Also, all of the recipes can be gluten free as well. However, if you don’t need them gluten-free, feel free to swap in regular flour or regular noodles into the various recipes without any problems.
I hope all of these various ways to make dairy free chicken dinners can give you plenty of options so you can enjoy a nice dinner rotation.
When you find a recipe you want to try, to be taken to the recipe page, either click on the photograph, or the title of the recipe below the corresponding picture. And, if you don’t want to read the parts before the recipe card (although I really do try to add extra cooking tips specific to that recipe) you can click “jump to recipe” at the top of the recipe.
And lastly–all of my recipes call for boneless, skinless chicken breasts, because that is what I prefer, but you are always welcome to swap it out for chicken thighs.
