Hammer chicken breasts flat. I use a cast iron skillet as the hammer.
Season lightly with salt, pepper and sage. Cover the breasts with prosciutto and swiss cheese and roll up. Secure with tooth picks.
Sauté in butter. Add a bit of minced onion or shallot to the skillet and cook until done. Add 2 cloves minced garlic as the onion is getting done.
Make a sauce with the pan fond, chicken broth and white wine. Reduce a bit and add heavy cream and chicken. Remove from heat before the cream breaks. I serve this with rice pilaf and asparagus.

Quick chicken soup. Cubed boneless skinless breasts, chopped carrots, celery, onion and potato placed in the pot covered by 2 inches with swanson chicken stock. Simmered till chicken was fully cooked and veggies were tender. Served over rice and topped with grated romano cheese.

The restaurant at the corner makes a great chicken dinner:
Char-grill boneless/skinless chicken breast. Top with prosciutto, sauteed portabello mushroom(s) and Monterey jack and cheddar cheeses. Broil to melt and lightly brown the cheese. Enjoy. To DIE for!

The food at the corner spot is sooo good my neighbor calls it "her kitchen". Can't remember the last time she cooked a meal! Boston-good food in a town of 11,000. And (bonus!) at small-town prices.

Soy Sauce Chicken

Marinate the chicken in

Marinate for a day. Grill, Pan cook, or oven bake.
To make the cooking process quicker. Cut up the chicken breast into pieces and marinate then saute with carrots, mushroom to make a stirfry

My wife has had a lap-band. In preparation for the surgery, one must reduce the "fat" in one's liver(cause they have to move it to do the surgery). That prefaces that she could only have 2 oz of chicken breast or tuna in water with absolutely NO oil.(not even a little Pam). OK, here goes....grill em, steam in a micro-steam bag with garlic and celery seed. That's as healthy as we could get..

I'm on the same 'diet'!! I eat chicken everyday and love it! But yes, it can get a bit boring, every day the same thing. But with this thread, hopefully we can spice it up a bit!

This is my favourite recipe:

Stuffed Chicken Breasts (servies 4)

1 small onion, chopped
2 slices leg ham or bacon, chopped
1 red capsicum, seeded and chopped
2 button mushrooms, chopped
2 tbsp prepared basil pesto (I use Leggo's brand)
3 pitted black olives, chopped
4 chicken breast fillets
Salt & black pepper
Butter for frying

Fry onion and ham in butter for 5 minutes until onion is tender. Add mushroom, olives and capsicum and cook for a further 5 minutes. Remove mixture from pan and place in a bowl. Mix in the pesto and season.

Cut a deep pocket into the thick part of the chicken breast fillets (through the side or width of the breast). Spoon the mixture into the opening, and then secure it closed with a toothpick

Cook chicken fillets for about 15 minutes until golden and cooked though. I usually cook for about 5 minutes on the top and bottom, and then once the filling is cooked through, place the opening side down and fry for a few more minutes, just to brown.

I normally serve with roasted pumpkin and potatoes, and steamed asparagus :)

Hope you enjoy! I certainly do!!!

I love how

1) It's been three years and the thread somehow got revived in between

2) It's taken me THIS LONG to get serious about my diet again. Don't worry I lost 20 pounds in between, but now I'm going for that sixpack.

Thanks for the recipes guys, much appreciated, any more are welcome.
