If they are bone-in and skin on chicken breasts, lightly coat them with olive oil and then season them simply with salt and pepper and roast at 350 F until juice run clear and skin is crisp. Server with baked potatoe.

If they are boneless, pound them flat and cook over med heat in a bit of olive oil until they are browned on both sides. Add one large can of diced tomatoes, some black olives and simmer covered until cooked through. Server with pasta. (if you have a lemon, a squeeze of lemon juice stirred in just before removing from the pan adds a nice flavor, but it is not necessary.

or they could be thawed & stuffed. there's ricotta if that's available, & frozen, cooked drained chopped spinach.....

there's chix chili, & plain batter-dipped or breaded chix strips, baked or fried.

great on pasta dishes that include a creamy sauce.
a few afterthoughts on this!
if making a casserole like i posted of, whisk milk (whole milk or even dilute canned) into the cream-of soup & use a generous amount. even if the casserole seems liquidy before baking.
& if canned soup isn't in your pantry, a bechamel would be great!

i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-

Be sure to dry off your chicken breasts (or any meat for that matter) when you remove them from the marinade. If you put wet meat into the hot pan. it will not brown. It will just steam.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

I know you said you do not have fresh veg but even if you have canned or frozenyou can do a quick andeasy stir fry. Cut chicken into small pieces cook with a little oil over a high heat in a sautee pan or wok add vegetables. If you are using canned veg add at the end, if using frozen either thaw first and add at the end or add a little earlier to defrost. Remember canned and frozen vegtables are already cooked. you can use any vegetables you like pretty much. Add spices to your taste, soy sauce is a classic, ginger is good, garlic is great, if you like it spicy you can add some form of chili pepper or sezwahn (sp?) pepper corns.
