Anyone have any good recipes for chicken breast that isn't a stir fry or schnitzel? Very uninspired with what to make.

Tuscan chicken is a favourite in our house with everyone.

Dice chicken and coat with Tuscan seasoning.
Cook in fry pan.
Add 300ml cream and a bit of stock.
Simmer and reduce.
Serve with vegetable of your choice.

I got a really yummy recipe off this site the other day, and it's sooooo easy:

cut up chicken breast/s into bite-sized pieces
fry up with some onion and garlic until cooked
add one tin of condensed mushroom soup

Done!

I served it with mash and steamed veggies.

This is from Donna Hays No Time To Cook and it has become a favourite.

Cut the breasts in halfs (longways, basically you are trying to reduce the cooking time on them so they arent so thick).
Place on each chicken piece a slice of mozarella, a basil leaf and wrap in panchetta
i do the above earlier in the day as my kids are little and a PITA at 530pm!

Put pitted kalamata olives and halved cherry tomatoes in a roasting tin with a bit of olive oil.
Roast for 10mins
Then put the chicken breasts on top of the tomatoes and olives.
Roast for 12-15mins.
Serve with a salad.

This.  This is genius.  Looks like way more effort than it actually is and is really tasty!  I have passed it on to numerous friends and family and no one has complained about it yet.  If you want to get really "gourmet" wrap the chicken breast in prosciutto instead of bacon!

2 ideas from taste.com that we use on a semi regular basis:

Chicken with crunchy cos salad

Slice breast in half and bash a bit to make it thinner. Marinate in some olive oil, dried chilli flakes, garlic and mint.

Slice cos finely and toss with some line nuts, bean sprouts and sliced shallots. Dress with white wine vinegar just before serving.

Pan fry the chicken and until cooked and golden.

It's a simple recipe yet surprisingly tasty. Oh, season the chicken before cooking.

Chicken parcels with chickpeas

Make a little parcel with baking paper within alfoil. Place a chicken breast in the centre, sprinkle around some tinned chick peas, sliced fennel, splash of white wine vinegar and glug of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, wrap up and bake for about 20 mins. The steaming effect means the breast doesn't dry out.

In the past week-and-a-bit, we've had:

- Grilled chicken breast with asparagus and pasta in a light Pesto-Alfredo sauce. SUPER good.
- Tuscan style chicken, white bean, and kale soup. Yummers!
- Herb-roasted chicken with stuffed squash and corn. The chicken was great but the squash was AMAZING lol

Tomorrow, probably honey mustard grilled chicken salad with goat's cheese and walnuts.

Just mix it up with other meats and it won't get too dull original.gif We've also had lamb, fish, and vegetarian meals this week.

Super easy moist chicken breast (serve with salad and maybe pasta or potato).

If thick, use a tenderiser (or rolling pin) to flatten chicken slightly to around 3cm thick - I forgot this step last time and it was fine.

Marinate with lemon juice, crushed garlic, thyme (or parsley or whatever) and salt for as long as you have before needing to cook it

Put frypan on high heat with a spray of cooking oil, place chicken in and cook for 1 minute on high

Turn chicken over, cover with lid, turn down to medium and cook for 10 minutes.

Turn heat off, leave frypan covered for another 10 minutes.

Take chicken out ans slice at an angle.....

mmmm tasty and not dry!

I make this one chicken with creamy garlic sauce.

Except, I leave the chicken in the pan and omit mustard & parsley - no reason I just don't often have any mustard... and I only just realised I was meant to use parsley - ha!

Still tastes great and so quick and easy I've made it often!

I'll be following this thread too!

I'm not good with chicken breasts, I just never know what to do with them and everything I come up with involves a cream based sauce which is not overly healthy.

I've been stalking Jamie Oliver's 30 + 15 minute meal shows lately.  I love the way he cuts a pocket in either chicken or pork fillets and stuffs with different things (feta and herbs for example).  He then just pan fries and slices into approximately inch thick slices.  It looks like fantastic served on a big platter.  (I'll be try this on Christmas day with chicken, cubed feta, fresh herbs and garlic and wrapped in prosciutto).

Do you gave a recipe that is good? I've made it once before but it tasted pretty ordinary so haven't bothered since.

I just found it online, I thought I had it saved in bookmarks but apparently I don't, will try and find it for you now.

ETA - found it: http://www.bestrecipes.com.au/recipe/honey...cken-L5904.html

I recognised the comments lol. We love honey in this house so did use a cup, and cooked in fresh canola oil, and only applied a light batter as I hate thick batter on things.

All I need to know now is where to get the crispy noodles you get with it from the chinese shop biggrin.gif
