I used to feel this way myself about the skinless stuff. I thought it seemed to be less tasty, but as I experimented with "outside the box" ideas, I found I actually prefer buying them like that now. A little extra olive oil over the required amount goes a long way on these. It's anything BUT moistureless and flavorless if you find how to cook it to the right consistency you like.

I never liked the thighs, but the skin, I was crazy about that before--now I always get those boneless, skinless breasts and cleanups a breeze and the extra olive oil gives it extra moisture that you miss from lack of skin.

I'm gonna try! I'm gonna try!

I miss my old homemade nuggets. I bet it works just as well with parmesan instead of breading.

I got this recipe from another recipe site but made a few changes. It is really very good.


Bacon Mushroom Chicken

2 tablespoons butter, melted
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
1 clove garlic, crushed
4 slices thick bacon
1/2 cup mushrooms (or more)
1/4 cup heavy cream


1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Pour melted butter into a 9x13-in baking dish.
3. Add chicken, sprinkle with seasoning salt and garlic.
4. Turn chicken over, season and lay bacon strips on top.
5. Sprinkle with mushrooms.
6. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-60 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.
7. Pour juices from pan into saucepan with heavy cream. Whisk until thickens.
8. Pour sauce over chicken in pan, bake another 5 mins.

Browning the chicken in olive oil and seasonings and then simmering in havy cream until thickened is a fave of mine. Add any veggies you want and it's a meal.

I tried something different tonight and it turned out yummy. Cut the chicken up, browned in olive oil with italian seasoning and minced garlic. Cut up a zucchini and tossed that in. When it was just about done, I splashed in some good red wine, added some butter and let that simmer a while. Served that over "mashed" cauliflower.

mmmmmm

I'm going to try Suzi's coconut recipe today! (on page two of this long thread)

It sounds delicious! I love anything coconut.


Any more great ideas out there?

How do we get this to be considered for "sticky-hood?"

My favorite chicken is a take off on Applebee's Tequila Lime Chicken. It is rather time consuming and labor intensive,but worth it to me.I know we aren't supposed to post internet sites, but just try a srerch for Top Secret Recipes and see what you get. This is a recipe site only, not selling products.

Even my non-LC husband loves 'pepperoni chicken'.

Just take baked or grilled chicken breast, top with pizza sauce, pepperoni and mozzarella and cook under the broiler for 10 min. or so. It is really good. I think I'll fix it this week!!!! It helps with pizza cravings.

I pound chicken breasts between layers of saran wrap till between 1/4-1/2 inch thick. I then marinate several hours in bottled Italian dressing, and grill over medium-low heat for 5 minutes a side. You don't want to overcook the chicken or it will be dry and tasteless. After grilling, top with marinated fresh mozzarella balls which you have sliced up. You can find them in the deli section of your supermarket in clear plastic tubs. Cover the chicken with foil for a few minutes so the cheese will soften and melt a bit. Very yummy!

I also like to grill extra chicken to use in chicken quesadillas another day. I cut it into bite sized pieces and saute it in a little oil and Linda Sue's homemade taco seasoning. Then in a clean pan, put a bit of oil, lay your LC tortilla, sprinkle your favorite shredded cheese over, and place the chopped chicken on one half only. Fold the other half over, and cook till golden brown on each side. Serve with sour cream, salsa, and guacamole.

I like to poach them and then serve with lime juice, hot sauce and some mayo. ( Just whisk in some lime juice and hot sauce with the mayo)

If I don't mind making a little more effort.....pound chicken breast thin....coat with seasoned Carbquik and egg.....then brown quickly in a skillet. Cook up some mushrooms in the same pan...with some chillis!!

I also love to top my cooked chicken breast with Spinach Punjab sauce I find at Trader Joes. Or if you can spare a few more carbs you can use the Masala simmer sauce.

Cheyenne Chicken

Marinate your chicken in a small amount of marinade.. I love Dales.

Slice mushrooms and sautee in butter and a dash of Dales marinade.

Grill the chicken outside or in a George Foremans type grill

When done cover with a slice of swiss cheese and smother with the mushrooms...

Me and my beautiful bride served this at our reception...It was a hit!

greek chicken

Soak a handful of dried wild mushrooms in just enough hot water to cover (I used chantarelle).
Cut up chicken into bite-size pieces (I almost always do this. seems to cook better)
Saute in olive oil with some oregano, tarragon and garlic
when just lightly brown, add mushrooms and their water.
Add a splash or two of dry white wine.
Simmer on medium until almost no liquid is left.
Add in chopped roma tomatoes and feta cheese.
Simmer until feta starts to melt.

pdianne, that sounds great! I've never used dried mushrooms. Are they stronger tasting than fresh?

The big advantage to dried is that they are available year-round whereas the fresh wild mushrooms are only available in season. They are slightly stronger than fresh wild mushrooms and the texture is a bit different.

It turned out so good that my non-LC roommate had seconds.

Flatten chicken breasts and cook in butter or Pam until done. Place in a baking dish, top with sliced mushrooms cooked in butter. Add a slice of mozerella to each and bake until cheese is bubbly and starting to brown....YUM

I made this last night and it was the best chicken I have ever had! Do not skip the broiling step or you will not get the crispy crust.

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 envelope Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix
1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic or garlic powder
little bit of mayo

Mix the parmesan, garlic and Ranch dressing mix together
Rub breasts with mayo (the chicken, not yours)
Dredge the breast in the parmesan mix and lay in shallow pan
take the rest of the parmesan mix and pat on top of chicken

Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes until done. Turn on broiler to darken and crisp cheese for about 5 minutes at the end.

had this last night...

Cut in strips and marinate in soy sauce, a little Port and red chili sauce (make it a light marinade).

Simmer chicken in the marinade until done. Serve with peanut sauce:

1/3 c coconut milk
juice of 1/2 lime
TBSP brown sugar substitute ( I used way less as I don't like it sweet)
1 clove garlic finely chopped
2 TBSP peanut butter
2+ pinches curry powder
dash sesame oil (i didn't have any so used fish sauce - sesame would be better)
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 TBSP soy sauce
2 tsp grated fresh ginger
cayenne to taste
chili sauce to taste

Combine all in pot and simmer until ready. Wisk occasionally.

Serve chicken with veggies of choice (broccoli and cauliflower last night) and a small bowl of the peanut sauce for dipping.

mmmm

(It's also gonna be my lunch today)

Please forgive the comment in parenthesis in my post (3 up). I copied that recipe from an email I had sent my sisters/girlfriends and forgot I had made that funny comment. Now it is too late for me to edit the post.

Haha! Just thick enough to see it and embed the cheese mixture. My mom just read another recipe that mixes the cheese mix and mayo together and then spread on the chicken. I think that may end up too greasy.

I just read a post the other day about a great way to fix chicken. I tried it and it's now a favorite. I'll have to summarize it from memory. Basically you take three chicken breasts and cut them into strips. Fry 6 pieces of bacon, remove from pan, and then saute the chicken breasts in the grease. Move to an 8x8 pan. Top with 1/4 cup prepared Ranch dressing, the chopped up bacon, and 1/2 cup shredded cheese. I baked it for about 20 minutes at 350F and it was yummy!
