OT: Simple Boneless Chicken Breast Recipes?
Posted by: spacescape

I'm not 100% up for grilling out tonight so I've come here to ask for advice. I have 3-4 boneless chicken breasts that I need to cook for a quick meal tonight. Anyone have a healthy recipe that will involve boneless chicken breasts? I'm thinking of putting some onions on them, Open Pit and some brown sugar @ 350 degrees for about 30-45 minutes. However, that doesn't seem like the healthiest choice. I thought about cooking them in a frying pan w/ some olive oil and onions and after they are browned good adding some sort of liquid (chicken broth? or a watery bbq sauce) and letting them cook for 10-20 minutes) covered... Anyone have a simple recipe?

Thanks!
Bill

so many where to begin....

cut them in half (so they are thinner) and pound pretty thin. a little breading or just a touch of flour on the outside... then saute in olive oil to brown them. Add some GOOD tomato sauce and let them simmer. Last few mins, throw on some moz cheese and let it melt.... mmmm..

Here's a thought. You might want to brown them in something other than Crisco, IMHO. Since you only have half the number of Chicken Breasts, adjust accordingly. My mom used to make something similar when I was a kid, and it was really good. Can't say how "healthy" it is, though. You could use the low fat version of the soup, too.

BAKED CHICKEN BREASTS

6 boneless & skinless chicken breasts
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 c. wine
Crisco
Salt & pepper to taste

Brown chicken breasts lightly in Crisco. Place in baking dish. Mix soup and wine; pour over chicken. Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour or until tender. Serve with rice or noodles.

Or the above, but trade the tomato sauce for 1/3 cup white wine and half a lemon squeezed.

I fiddled around a bit with variations of this:

Saute four or so boneless breasts and lots of crushed garlic in a tablespoon or so of olive oil over high heat. Add maybe a cup of white wine and a half pound of sliced fresh mushrooms. Cook over medium heat briefly to soften up the mushrooms, then reduce over high heat until most of the water is gone.

Haven't quite gotten down the procedure for getting rid of the water without overcooking the chicken, and you need to watch out that you don't scorch the garlic, but it comes out very tasty. Serve on something like linguini, with or without a pasta sauce.

my favorite is "baked" fried chicken, where you cruch a bunch of crackers, mix in a bunch of spices, then bake it. It ends up crunchy like fried chicken, but is not greasy. I guess Shake and Bake is pretty much the same thing.

Just chunk up the chicken and stir-fry it with some veggies and put it over rice. Spices, soy sauce to your taste.

Saute a chopped clove of garlic in a TBS of olive oil. Press fresh rosemary leaves into chicken breasts and sautee over medium heat until just done. Do not overcook or the chicken will dry out. Serve with steamed rice or couscous.
A good accompaniment is a fresh garden salad or sliced fresh pears or lightly sauteed sliced apples. Your family will love it!

1. let 'em "soak" in yogurt, about tbsp/breast, for a few hours. use you hands to mix and coat them in yogurt.
drain off the excess. grill 'em in the broiler with a little oregano and or rosemary.

2. mix up some balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Balsamic, olive oil, roasted garlic, if you have it, fresh otherwise, pepper, salt if you desire, basil and oregano.
brush 'em with some olive oil and grill or sauté until half way done or so.
then paint on some vinaigrette and grill 'em.

Boneless Chicken Breasts work great in my Bass-O-Matic. It's a great multi-tasker.


Actually, here's the classic:

Chicken Marsala
Recipe courtesy Tyler Florence and JoAnn Cianciulli

Recipe Summary
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

4 skinless, boneless, chicken breasts (about 1 1/2 pounds)
All-purpose flour, for dredging
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
4 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced
8 ounces crimini or porcini mushrooms, stemmed and halved
1/2 cup sweet Marsala wine
1/2 cup low sodium chicken stock
2 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley

Put the chicken breasts side by side on a cutting board and lay a piece of plastic wrap over them; pound with a flat meat mallet, until they are about 1/4-inch thick. Put some flour in a shallow platter and season with a fair amount of salt and pepper; mix with a fork to distribute evenly.
Heat the oil over medium-high flame in a large skillet. When the oil is nice and hot, dredge both sides of the chicken cutlets in the seasoned flour, shaking off the excess. Slip the cutlets into the pan and fry for 5 minutes on each side until golden, turning once – do this in batches if the pieces don't fit comfortably in the pan. Don't over-cool the pan. Remove the chicken to a large platter in a single layer to keep warm.

Lower the heat to medium and add the prosciutto to the drippings in the pan, saute for 1 minute to render out some of the fat. Now, add the mushrooms and saute until they are nicely browned and their moisture has evaporated, about 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Pour the Marsala in the pan and boil down for a few seconds to cook out the alcohol. Add the chicken stock and simmer for a minute to reduce the sauce slightly. Stir in the butter and return the chicken to the pan; simmer gently for 1 minute to heat the chicken through. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with chopped parsley before serving.

So spacescape, aren't you glad you asked? Be sure to eat up a few sheets of paper and print them out. I have already. There are some good ideas I've not come across before here.

I'm with Pops, only I would add capers. You must have capers!

Use the same recipe for fish.

Mix up a batch of Good Season's Italian Salad dressing (1 pkg.. with the water and oil)

Pour over chicken brests, top with a littel paprika and bake at 350 for 45 min.





If you don't stand for something, you'll probably fall for anything.t
