Is there such a thing as a devotional for each chapter of the Bible? I found some chapter summaries, such as the "Summarized Bible" for the Old and New Testaments. I also found a number of calendar devotionals with readings for one year. But I can't find a book of devotionals for each chapter of the Bible. Our church is looking for something like that to accompany our custom Bible reading plan.

Do you know of any book titles that would meet this need? Thanks!

One option would be the Day by Day Collection

There is a day by day in the Old Testament and a day by day in the New Testament.

Another possibility is With the Word Bible Commentary

While this is not a devotional, it has the format of one and might meet your needs

This may be a distant cousin to what you are looking for, it isn't really chapter by chapter, but I like it as a devotional commentary and have used it alongside a Bible Reading plan.  You might be able to adapt it.

Might be expensive for everyone to buy.

One suggestion is Chapter Reflections in Poor Man's Old and New Testament Commentary (12 vols.)

Yes, "Our Daily Homily" will do this. Unfortunately, Logos built it as a type:monograph. As an example I'll put the text to Gen 1:

The Evening and the Morning were the First Day.

How different is God’s method from man’s! The creature works from day to night, his best is first; but darkness overshadows his fairest hopes and best concerted schemes. The Creator’s days begin with the preceding eve. He reckons the evenings and nights into the days, because out of them the day is born; they usher in the light, and recreate body and brain for the busy hours that follow.
Art thou disappointed in Christian work? — Remember that God wrought on through long dark ages, ere his schemes were evolved in order and beauty. Human schemes begin with blare of trumpet and roll of drum, but are soon plunged in darkness. The heavenly seed is sown in autumn shadows; the foundation stone of redemption was laid amid the gloom of Calvary; the work that lasts generally begins amid disappointment, difficulty, and heartbreak, but inevitably passes into the day.
Art thou passing through the bitterness of soul trouble? — For weeks there has been no ray of comfort, no sign of deliverance. Yet every dark hour is hastening towards the dawn. Thou shalt see thy Beloved walking towards thee in the morning light.
Art thou in despair for the world? — The times are dark, and threaten to get darker. But if the first creation began in the dark, can it be wondered at that the second must begin there too? But as the one emerged in daylight, so shall the other. The morning cometh; see the star of day standing sentry! Time is bearing us to a day that shall never go down to night, but shall mount ever towards its meridian.

John Butler has a synopsis volume that comes a bit close: https://www.logos.com/product/9381/daily-bible-reading
