Chicken breasts ideas?

427 Views 7 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Magali
So, I have a few breasts I took out of the freezer and I'm at a loss of what to do with them! I breaded some last week, made chicken stew the week before..

So, any ideas? I'd love to do a one pot kind of casserole but I can't find a recipe I really enjoy so I figured this was the place to inquire

First thing I'd think of is some sort of curry. I just wing curries really. Sautee the chicken with whatever veggies you've got on hand, throw in curry spices, and add some kefir or yogurt at the end. Serve over a grain.

Or you could make fajitas, grill them and serve them with salad.
there is always chicken salad when nothing else sounds good. just cook and cool. and boil some eggs too if you like them... add mayo or whatever chicken salad seasonins you like and have a salad or sandwich.

we LOVE chicken salad!
my children like it "chinese style" ; I cut the meat in strips, toss it in the wok with a little olive oil (or whatever) fry it for a minute or two, then add a little ground ginger, a little powdered garlic, then a little soy sauce.

usually serve it with plain rice and steamed (frozen) green peas
I make lemon herb butter chicken a lot.

Melt 4-5 Tbls. butter and mix in 4-5 Tbls. olive oil. Add your favorite fresh or dried herbs (I usually do my Italian seasoning blend and some fresh parsley) and a few cloves of smashed or finely minced fresh garlic. Cut a lemon in half and add the juice from it.

Put the 3-4 chicken breasts in a glass dish and pour the mixture over it. Put a sprig of fresh parsley or other herb on top of each breast and a slice of the leftover half lemon. Allow it to sit for a few hours before baking it for 40 minutes at 350.

I serve mine with sauteed zucchini, yellow squash, and asparagus.

I'm dying for some chicken marsala!!
I like to stuff them with cream cheese and fry in olive oil, then serve with balsamic reduction over top. Sometimes I flavor the cream cheese with garlic, or cajun seasoning.
