14 Chicken Recipes for Ramadan to Make Again and Again

Chicken is an easily overlooked menu item during Ramadan, with everyone wanting favorite and specialty foods. But in my opinion, it’s the most important protein source of the fasting month. Chicken is a healthier option, versatile and even more affordable than red meats.

Chicken is always my go-to protein when I need to make something fast that I know most everyone will eat. The recipes shared here go beyond the typical Middle Eastern/Asian dishes commonly associated with Ramadan meals.

Here are a few of my favorite Ramadan chicken recipes for main dishes, finger foods, using ground chicken or pre-shredded chicken, and a few fried treats.

14 Chicken Recipes for Ramadan to Make Again and Again

Chicken prepared in multiple ways for all different palates - dig into these delicious dishes.

Chicken Main Dishes

Here are some ideas for chicken main dishes that will be greatly appreciated on your iftar table, and hopefully aren’t too time-consuming to make.

Shredded Chicken Recipes

Make batches of shredded chicken ahead of time (use the above roasted chicken recipe or slow cooker recipe below) and then you can quickly pull off these flavorful and impressive recipes.

Ground Chicken Recipes

I find ground (aka minced) chicken even more versatile than ground beef. It’s lighter and takes on flavor better. Ground turkey is an even lighter option. Here is a collection of recipes using ground chicken.

Fried Chicken Recipes

There’s no way we’re going to make it through the month without some fried treats. Chicken-based dishes will still be a bit lighter than ground beef.
