I Want a New Recipe for Chicken Breasts?

    I'm thawing some boneless/skinless chicken breasts for dinner tonight. Anyone have a new recipe for them? I was going to make 15 min. fajitas, but I'm thinking I want something different. Any great ideas? Something other than grilling or baking. I'm also thinking about the Adobo Glazed Barbeque Chicken from the Grill it Quick cookbook -I made that with chicken breasts before and it is really good.

    What's your favorite recipe?

    this is baked but it is delicious & no fail so makes a great meal for company too and can be made ahead of time to bake later in the day.

    Chicken Ala Teresa

    6 chicken breast fresh boneless skinless
    6 slices swiss cheese (I use whole package of sliced )
    1 can mushroom soup and add at least 1/2 cup white wine (more if you need, ha...it just tenderizes the chicken)
    1-2 cups of pepperidge farm herb stuffing mix
    1 stick melted butter or margarine

    Breast in pan (can be frozen), cheese on top, mushroom/wine mixture on top
    seasoning mix on top and melted margarine on top. Cover and bake at 375 for at least 45 minutes. Uncover to "TOAST" the topping a little bit.

    Serve with Uncle Ben's Wild Rice and a caesar salad

    My mom used to do this:

    pund them out thin...spread "Alouette Garlic & Herb Cheese Spread" on each breast...roll it up & secure with a toothpick. Roll in egg-wash and breadcrumbs and bake til cooked thru.

    I've done the Teresa Chicken (without wine - although I like that idea!) in the crock pot.

    And I just serve as is with a vegetable. It is good!

    I got this from a Gooseberry Patch cookbook.

    Take 1 can of cream of chicken soup and blend with 1/2 c. of chicken broth.
    Lay 3 - 4 chicken breasts in a 9x13 pan. put a slice of swiss cheese on top of each. then spoon soup/broth mixture over each breast. Pour 2 cups of Stove Top on top and drizzle 1 stick of melted butter over it. Bake 50 minutes at 350.

    This is quite tasty...a hit every time.

    Whoa! It looks like what I just posted is quite similar to Chicken a la Theresa.

    That sounds really good! I don't want to go to the store so I'll save this one for another day.

    I love Chicken Michael :

    Melt butter and some fresh crushed garlic in the 12 skillet -

    Add chicken cutlets - cover with lid.

    Cook 3/4 way thru

    Throw in some Steamed Broccoli

    Top with Shredded Cheddar cheese -
    Pop in oven at 350 for about 30 minutes - serve with Rice or egg noodles
    Sep 1, 2008
  10. Chicken Georgia...which I have changed and made my own.

    Basically I saute a pint of sliced mushrooms in a little garlic and olive oil, while cooking the chicken in the same pan. Top with swiss cheese.

    I add a bit of white wine to it if I have it on hand...

    It is so delicious.
    I usually cut up the chicken breast into pieces for a few reasons, faster cook time and then I don't have to cut it up to eat.
    I normally make this when Dennis is away and I take a plate of it and watch TV on the couch!
    Also If I have some tomatoes on hand I will put some in the pan while cooking.

    It probably should be called Vanessa's Chicken because I don't recall the original recipe. I got the recipe from jrstephens.

    I cut chicken into chunks place in skillet with 1 T of apricot jelly/jam a few shakes of soy and a small can of crushed pineapples. Serve with rice or couscous... sometimes I add red peppers for color. The whole family loves it.

    Here is a Yummy Cheesy Chicken recipe (from a good southern friend of mine) ;)

    6 Boneless chicken breasts
    Seasoned salt, such as Lawry's
    1 10.75 ounce can Cream of Chicken Soup
    6 slices Cheddar cheese
    6 slices Swiss cheese
    1 cup dry herb stuffing mix
    1/4 cup butter, melted

    1 recipe Parmesan Noodles (which I'll also give you)

    Preheat oven to 350
    Place chicken in a glsas baking dish and season with seasoned salt. Spread soup over chicken and top with cheese slices.
    In a bowl, combine stuffing mix and butter. Mixture should stick together. Add more butter or stuffing if necessary. Spread over cheese covered chicken in baking dish.
    Bake uncovered, for 50-55 minutes, or until browned and bubbling. Serve with Parmesan Noodles.

    9 ounces wide egg noodles, uncooked.
    3 TB butter
    Seasoned salt to taste (I prefer freshly gound black pepper, instead- as I'm not a huge fan of seasoned salt in my noodles)
    3 TB sour cream
    1/2 freshly grated Parmesan cheese

    Cook noodles in boiling water until tender, Drain and return to saucepan. Add butter, seasoned salt (or pepper, :)) stirring until butter melts. Add sour cream and parmesan cheese, stiring to combine. Serve with chicken (this dish takes about 20 minutes to complete from start to finish)

    Have fun with supper tonight!

    ETA- I suppose I should have read the posts in the thread, first! Too funny...about three other people have a recipe similar to this one! LOL

    Oven Baked Parmesan Chicken

    1/4 C. butter
    1/2 C. flour
    1/2 C. grated Parmesan cheese
    2 tsp. dried basil
    1 tsp. dried oregano
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    4 split chicken breasts (I have always used boneless skinless chicken, but split with skin is probably better)
    1/3 C. milk

    Heat oven to 400.

    In 13x9 pan, melt butter in oven (5-7 min). Stir together all remaining ingredients EXCEPT chicken and milk. Dip chicken in milk and then coat with flour mixture. Dip chicken in butter, place skin side up in pan. Bake 45-50 minutes or till the chicken is fork tender and golden brown.

    Raspberry-Balsamic Glazed Chicken (this one is really really good)

    1 teaspoon vegetable oil
    Cooking spray
    1/2 cup chopped red onion
    1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
    4 (4-ounce) skinned, boned chicken breast halves
    1/3 cup seedless raspberry preserves
    2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    1/4 teaspoon pepper

    Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion; sauté 5 minutes. Combine thyme and 1/4 teaspoon salt; sprinkle over

    chicken. Add chicken to skillet; sauté 6 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from skillet; keep warm. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt, preserves, vinegar, and pepper, stirring constantly until the preserves melt. Spoon raspberry sauce over chicken.

    Personal Notes:
    Other fruit preserves, such as apricot, blackberry, or peach will also work with this recipe. Preserves don’t need to be seedless. About the sauce, start with the recommended quantities for preserves and balsamic vinegar but adjust to taste. It is wise to use good quality balsamic. If you are to serve this with rice you might want to double the sauce. Sauce can be thinned with chicken broth. This is a quick, delicious and healthy meal. I was very surprised by how well it tasted. Cook time: 17 min.

    So are you saying you want to microwave it? Or you just don't want baked chicken. I love the Satay Chicken Pasta Salad from the new SBRC. I cooked the chicken in the microwave.

    I love BBQ chicken pizza with lots of tomatoes over top. I also like the PC Hawiian chicken pizza recipe with pineapple.

    My kids like it when I pound the chicken down, spread a tablespoon of onion/chives cream cheese over the chicken, roll it up and wrap bacon around it. Then I bake it.

    I'm not good with grilled chicken. It always seems to come out dry and chewy. Yuck.

    JAE, I meant something other than rubbing it with spices and popping it in the oven or on the grill.

    The new salt and pepper are excellent on chicken breasts. Just saute in the stainless steel skillet/saute pan (depending on how many you are cooking). Place a little olive oil in the pan and then use the grinders with the salt and pepper on the chicken breasts. That is all you need----my family loves them! Very little needed on hand to cook them either.

    If you have time for the crock pot, this is wonderful:

    2 1/2 to 3 # chicken breasts (thawed from a frz. bag)
    1 can Cream of Chicken soup on top in the crock pot.
    Cook on low all day and your chicken will be tender as can be, you can shred it for other recipes too. It's quick, easy and tasty.

    About and hour after I started this thread I remembered that I had a package of hamburger in the fridge that I bought the night before so I put the chicken back in the freezer and we had tacos! I'm definately going to give some of these recipes a try-out though - there's some yummy sounding ones on this list.
