I made white chili last night and it turned out fabulous, if you’d be interested in that.  Really yummy chicken recipe.  πŸ™‚

Our favorite recipe for chicken is to sprinkle a Hidden Valley Ranch packet over the chicken and then just cook it in a skillet with a little olive oil.  The flavor is tangy and delicious!  And it’s super simple!

Whole chicken or breasts?

I took a cooking class in my single life that taught us the secret to great chicken —

Sautee and brown the breasts in butter (if using cream) or vegetable oil (if using stock). Don’t cook fully through but get brown and tender

Take chicken out of the pan, add 1 shallot and brown

Add about 1/2 cup of some sort of alcohol or vinager (whatever you want — I usually use a pear flavored balsamic vinager) and reduce (if you’re on a gas stove this will flame! its realy quite cool). I don’t really measure this, just pour it in to cover the pan…

Once reduced, add either cream or chicken stock. Add the chicken back in and simmer for about 5- 7 minutes (don’t boil!)

You can also put in veggies and stuff too at the shallot stage….

So many different varieties here and so good…

DH’s favorite is really simple.  Just mix some italian seasoning with EVOO and marinate it for a while.  Brown it on the stovetop and then roast at 375 until it’s done.  We usually cut chicken breasts up into strips so there is more flavor in each bite.  πŸ™‚  Also, we usually use McCormicks Italian Seasoning Grinder.

Does peanut crusted chicken or lemon pepper chicken sound good?

We eat a lot of chicken so I try to change it up all the time. This is a recipe that I keep in the rotation because its a nice change from the typical baked or grilled chicken but its still fairly healthy. It doesn’t taste exactly like General Tsao’s chicken but its definitely an asian flavor and its a big hit with my family! Toss in a bag of frozen veggies and put it all over some boil in bag rice and it’s a super easy meal!

@Adams_bee:  if they are boneless – this is super easy and VERY tasty!  I usually make it with two breasts and just sprinkle some blue cheese on the top instead of stilton.  You don’t even need the cheese, it just adds an extra kick. πŸ™‚  the chicken comes out super moist and delicious!  the kind of apples DO make a difference, IMO – generic apples get mushy and impart a different flavor.

My family and I LOVE when I make garlic-soy chicken….it’s really easy, too! I mix some melted butter or olive oil, soy sauce, honey, fresh thyme, crushed red pepper flakes, and minced fresh garlic. I never measure the amounts of ingredients, but you can just add more of what you like and less of items you may not like as much….but I wisk all ingredients and pour over the chicken breasts, then bake at 350 for a half hour or so, then broil for another 10-15minutes until the chicken is the desired texture. It’s DELISH! πŸ™‚
