Please help! In an attempt to make myself cook dinner more often for my poor husband now that I’ve gotten some of my appetite and energy back (I’m preggo!) I defrosted about 1.5 lbs skinless boneless chicken breast. Yesterday I wasn’t hungry, but if I don’t use the chicken tonight it will go bad since we’ll be away for the weekend. The idea of eating a baked chicken breast is really unappealing to me right now.
I need ideas, other than simply baking it or grilling it.

Stuff it with goat cheese and pan sear or bake it! You can also cut it into smaller pieces, wrap it with bacon and cook it. Chicken stir fry sounds good too. An easy thing my husband does is coat the chicken in panko bread crumbs, fry it in a pan, and then toss with buffalo sauce (Frank’s with a touch of butter). I also like chicken with a can of cream of mushroom as a sauce and wild rice (Uncle Ben’s in the steamer bag!) on the side.

I might be able to handle the stir fry. Stuffed sounds great, but soft cheeses are off limits. Maybe I’ll use half in an asian stirfry and half I’ll bread and fry.
I was thinking chicken tacos, but that would entail a trip to the store.

If you are willing to go to the store something that is really easy and tasty is.
1) cube chicken & brown in a skillet. remove from pan (one with lid if you can or a pot)
2) sautee garlic
3) add chicken back to pan with 2 TB flour. Add one can light coconut milk. Simmer until the chicken is cooked through and sauce has thickened slightly
Serve with rice (made with chicken broth instead of water) or seasoned any other way. I like green onions mixed in as well
So easy and tasty!

Ok i love chicken, here are two easy ones depending on the weather.
Chicken pot pie:
cut up the chicken and cook it in a pan with just salt and pepper seasonin.
1-can condensed chicken soup
1- bag frozen peas and carrotts
after chciken is cooked at soup and frozen veggies cook until done. then I use indiviual small ceramic oven safe dishes and I roll out the biscuits one on the bottom then scoop filling in then one on the top. Bake at 375 until biscuit on top is golden brown.
Cut up chicken and stir fry with a little garlic and oyster sauce. remove when cooked. then stir fry broccoli with garlic and oyster sauce then add chicken and a pinch of flour and sugar. Done
sorry for the long post

My two favorite things to do with chicken are make tacos out of it or put it on pizza. Either way, I boil it and then shred it or chop it up really small. For tacos you can either use a regular seasoning packet or just put it in a pan with onions, green chilis, cumin, chili powder, and garlic (none of these are essential except the cumin and chili powder). Serve in hard or soft shells, on chips, or on a salad with salsa and cheese.
For pizza I make buffalo chicken pizza with sauteed onions, banana peppers, hot sauce, ranch, and provolone. Or fajita pizza with sauteed onions and peppers and montery jack cheese. You could also do bbq pizza with bbq sauce, red onions, and mozerella.
You could also make chicken chili with a few cans of beans, cans of tomatoes, and spices (plus whatever other veg you have laying around… chili is a great place to throw in veggies that are going ot go bad soon).
It’d help to know what is your fridge right now… 🙂

@mrstilly: Oh no! I didn’t realize soft cheeses were no-go’s for pregnancy. Not looking forward to that one. What about tacos without the shell? If that’s what you’d need from the store that is.

I found this great recipe for enchilada soup. So easy and if you’re only serving two, there are lots of leftovers which we definitely don’t mind in our house! 🙂 It’s one of our new favorites.

@PumpkinSpiceChai: I just saved that recipe. Yum!!! I’m going to make that one for sure. 🙂
How about Chicken Parm? That’s easy and yummy. Can you have Mozzarella cheese? Or is that a no-no?
I recommend All-Recipes.com. My favorite recipe website. You can see all of the chicken recipes and sort by rating. That’s what I do!

When I have leftover chicken, I boil it with chicken stock and salsa, and then shred it and make chicken tacos 🙂
