Chicken parmesan is my go-to when I have chicken breasts, as long as I have some tasty mozzerella to sprinkle on top.  I love putting spices in the bread crumbs too before bread and frying them.  Yum!

Dredge them in flour and saute them. Take them out to drain. Use the oil and yummy bits in the pan to make a lemon butter sauce by adding some  garlic, herbs/herb seasoning, lemon juice. Then pour the sauce on top of the chicken! Nomnomnom!!!


Put them in a pan and pour cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup on top of them and bake them. Nomnomnom too!

I read that and thought, hey I took out chicken thighs for dinner tonight.  🙂

I like to make a sauce out of cream of whatever (usually mushroom, chicken, or celery, whatever we have), white wine, a little lemon juice, and sometimes we have capers.  I put the breasts in a 9×9 baking dish, cover it with the sauce, and bake at 375ish for half an hour.  I’ll baste it with the sauce a couple times while it cooks.  FI loves it and it’s simple and uses every day ingrediants.  Hope this helps!

One thing that’s become my go-to for dinner parties is a White BBQ Chicken. Basically replaces the ketchup in bbq sauce with mayo and plays with the flavors in a different way. I love this chicken, and so does DH.

I pretty much stole it from this recipe. Chicken thighs or breasts, doesn’t matter.

Bash out the chicken breasts with a rolling pin until it’s thin, then rub with chipotle sauce, lime/lemon, garlic and olive oil

Serve with cajun spicy rice – I use this recipe but use oil instead of butter, fry a pepper with the onion and use cajun spice instead of the spices it suggests

Griddle the chicken breasts when the rice is nearly ready

One of my favourite meals Laughing

Pound chicken breasts with heavy skillet so they’re fairly thin. Grate some parmesan onto them, a little lemon zest. Add some prosciutto.  Cook in a little olive oil (or cooking spray) in a skillet over fairly high heat (to get a nice sear & crisp up the prosciutto), turning halfway through.

There’s actually a video of this somewhere–it’s a Jamie Oliver recipe and the video has Jamie & Mark Bittman (aka the Minimalist, he still writes for the NYT).  It’s easy and so tasty!
