Red face Boneless, skinless chicken breast??

I'm thinking of making a tortilla pizza with the chicken breast or perhaps stuffing with Boursin garlic cheese & wrapping in Serrano ham. Any better ideas would be gladly appreciated. I always buy a tray then spend the next few days of trying to come up with more imaginative ways of serving it!

Fiona, have you thought about Chicken Saltimbocca? It's not that dissimilar to what you're already making.

Chicken Fajitas
Chicken-Fried Chicken Breast with Mashed spuds and Cream Gravy (Sounds redundant, but is REALLY good)
My other half likes me to make a basic Duxelles stuffing, stuff the chicken with that, sear, place in a casserole, saute onions, garlic, mushrooms, and seasonings in the same pan the chicken was cooked in, deglaze with a touch of white wine, add some cream of mushroom, stir until smooth, and bake for an hour.
Make a cornbread/andouille stuffing, stuff the chicken, sear and bake (we do this at work, with skin-on double breasts rolled around the stuffing).
Make a crab stuffing, maybe with a bit of good cheese, sear and bake.
I've made a cheesy, Tex-Mex chicken/rice casserole that's really good (although I use dark meat).
Maybe some kind of stuffing with Italian sausage? The fat from the sausage will help keep the breasts moist.
Rubbed with a Mexican-style rub, grilled, with a mango/pineapple salsa.
Sauteed, add shallots and apricots, deglaze with white wine or brandy.
Broiled with Mango butter.
Normandy Chicken - sauteed, add shallots and cooking apples, deglaze with apple brandy, add some cream, simmer to marry the flavors.
Bread the chicken, pan-fry or bake in the oven, top with bacon and cheese, and return to the oven to melt the cheese.
Traverse City Chicken - saute, add shallots, reconstituted dried cherries, deglaze with Kirsch, add cream, simmer to marry flavors and complete the cooking.
Make a Mole Sauce, saute the chicken, and top with a little of the Mole, serve with Mexican rice.

I could go on and go.

Well, I am going to give you the run down on this.Typically, it is done with 8way chicken(parted and skin on bird), boiled in a ginger curry broth until cooked just through, drain, cool overnight, then bread it and fry it...like fried chicken sans the boil...the curry flavor is nice and I pair it with either Mango salsa OR Mango Coulis.

For just the breast, skin off, I would season liberally with curry powder, coriander, s+p, bread and pan fry until done and pair with said accoutrement.

Hi Fiona. Two of my comfort-food chicken dishes are cordon bleu and Marsala.

Have a recipe w a little twist for the cordon bleu using balsamic, prosciutto, mozzarella (from memory).

A few other ideas:

Chicken bruschetta

Chicken Caprese (w lemon sauce - again from memory)

Chicken Portofino
chicken breasts, sun-dried tomatoes, shitake mushrooms, prosciutto, Marsala wine, toasted pine nuts, & basil.

Buffalo Chicken Breasts

Greek-like chicken breasts stuffed with feta & pine nuts (& spinach? - will look it up.)

That's off the top of my head. If any of them "grab" you. Let me know.

How about Chicken Alfredo...Sweet & Sour Chicken...Chicken a la King...Chicken Chow Mein...grilled or fried chicken sandwiches...chicken salad?

If you're not too proud to cook with canned soups, I have more ideas for you.

We get by with a little help from our friends
