100-Recipe Chicken breast challenge

Alright guys, I've been on here a while and haven't found use for this particular end of the forum until now. There seems to be a lot in this forum about easy chicken recipes and grandma's chicken recipes and chicken in the oven, and that's all fine and good. However, I've just started a fitness program, and the only form of chicken I'm allowing myself to eat is chicken breasts.

I figure I collect at least 100 recipes, pick 50, and rotate them throughout the year. The culinary reputation of anyone and everyone who reads this is on the line. So, who would like to offer one up? I just want all the "chicken breast" recipes in one place :P

If this one succeeds, we will continue with salmon. Yes, I will be posting recipes myself.

I rarely use anything but chicken breast. This thread has a jillion chicken recipes. You can sub in chicken breast for any other listed type.

Edit: Any particular restrictions? Since you are having a fitness thing does that mean low cal meals? Low fat? Or just anything goes as long as its chicken breast?

Mustard chicken breasts wrapped in parma ham is a particular favourite and your nicely talked through it on eatthechef- which is useful as I need all the help in the kitchen I can get!

Though, don't you think you might get a bit bored of just chicken breasts? Saying that, the dedication to the diet is highly impressive- good luck with it!

Since this would not have cheese stuffing it is a lite version.

Here is one of my favorite chicken breast recipes. It is quick, easy, and is different from the usual chicken recipes. You can also substitute other veggies like broccoli or carrots for the other vegetables.

Asian Foil-Wrapped Chicken

3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce 1 tablespoon sesame oil
½ teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, minced
4 (5oz) chicken breast halves
1 large red bell pepper, seeded and sliced ½-inch thick
½ lb. snow peas
½ cup sliced water chestnuts
2 scallions, sliced
2 cups hot cooked rice

Preheat oven to 500ºF. Spray four 12-inch square sheets of foil with nonstick cooking spray. In a small bowl, mix the soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, and garlic. Place 1 chicken breast half on each foil square and fold edges up but not over the chicken. Scatter red pepper strips, snow peas, waterchestnuts, and scallions evenly over each 4 chicken breasts. Spoon equal amounts of the soy sauce mixture over the vegetables. Fold the foil over the chicken and roll edges up tightly to seal. Place the foil packets on baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes. Check for doneness by opening one of the foil packets to see if the chicken is firm and juices run clear when the meat is pierced with a knife. Serve with rice.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

Cheez-it Chicken

My mom used to make this and I always loved it. It's just as good cold, the next day.

3 or 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 box Cheez-it crackers, crushed
1 carton sour cream
salt and pepper
garlic powder

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Coat chicken in sour cream. I like to put a nice, thick coating, maybe 1/4 inch. Dip coated chicken in Cheez-it crumbs. This can get messy so use one hand for the sour cream and the other hand for the crumbs. Place chicken on a non stick cookie sheet and sprinkle the salt, pepper, and garlic powder on top. Bake for 45 minutes.

The sour cream really locks in the moisture and they come out very juicy and tender with a nice crunch from the cracker crumbs.

Smouldering Chicken

This is not your Grandma's Chicken!
2 chicken breasts, bone in but skinless
1/3 cup Sriracha brand pepper sauce
2 tsp. Tobasco Pepper Sauce
1/2 medium onion, chopped.
2 tbs. Kikoman Lite Soy Sauce

Combine the sauces, and onion, and place in a plastic bag. Add chicken and shake to completely coat the chicken. Place in the fridge and let marinate for 2 hours. Remove from the bag and place on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Roast in a 375' F. oven for 40 minutes. Remove and serve with unsweetened apple sauce and a sliced avacado on the side.
