“Eat healthy,” they said. “It’ll be easy,” they said. The bland and boring meals? They somehow forgot to mention those. We’ve tried every which way to spice up chicken breast, but sometimes we need a little something extra to keep things interesting. Which is when we turn to sauce: a healthy twist on Alfredo, the freshest chimichurri we’ve ever seen, and a stir-fry sauce that simply calls itself “the best.” Because everything’s better with a friend.

1. 5-Minute Magic Green Sauce

Weak sauces can see themselves out: Pistachios give this one a fantastic crunch, while avocado, parsley, cilantro, and garlic add rich flavor.

2. The Best Stir-Fry Sauce

We’ll eat anything covered in this sauce—even green beans. Especially green beans. Soy sauce, honey, and ginger? We can’t say no.

3. Super Easy Salsa Verde

Whether you mix it with veggies or eat it by the spoonful, set salsa verde free from its corn chip connotations.

4. 5-minute Argentino Chimchurri Sauce

Pair this fresh twist on traditional chimichurri with chicken, steak, or pasta salad for a light, tangy burst of flavor.

5. Authentic Italian Homemade Marinara Sauce

Buh-bye, Prego. Feel just as good as this marinara tastes.

6. Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce

Alfredo sauce is our go-to with pasta, but it also gives a creamy kick to salmon or roasted veggies.

7. Easy And Healthy Teriyaki Sauce

At just six ingredients, including water, it’s the perfect topper to any bland chicken dish.
