I only use chicken breast meat for sandwiches. I bake it in the oven, eat the crunchy skin, and make a sandwich with lots of mayo and warm slices of breast meat. Sometimes I add sliced Swiss and bacon.

The rest is either sliced for more sandwiches or turned into chicken salad.

I have never bought tofu. Every now and again I see an interesting recipe that has tofu and just skp it because of the tofu. That's why I couldn't give a specific recipe. I figured I could try some of those tasty sounding recipes by using a tofu-substitute.

I occasionally buy chicken breast because my DH only likes white meat. I usually make a recipe that calls for a whole cut up chicken, using breasts and legs. I almost always have some chicken legs in the freezer.

Aunt Bea has the answer!! That is exactly what I think of chicken breasts.

I sometimes buy a box of fried chicken pieces at Wal-Mart--and the dogs go crazy as soon as I come in the door. They know that I get the legs, thighs, and wings, and THEY get the breasts!!

I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.
