I make a casserole that my boys love. I'm not sure on the exact oz. of the cans, but, they are the normal sized cans.
cook about a pound of chicken, boiled, grilled, etc.. chop after cooking.
Mix in one 13 oz can of cream of mushroom soup, one 10 oz can rotel tomatoes and some chopped onion.
crush cheese doritos in the bottom of a baking dish. Spread chicken mix onto doritos. Top with shredded cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 until cheese is melted.

fastest and easiest is to season it and then broil it

chicken and rice is also easy:
mix a can o' Cream of Campbell (your fave) with at least an equal measure of milk, pour a little into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.
pour a cup of uncooked rice over that
Lay raw chicken parts (breast, thigh, whatevah) next, seasoned of course
pour remaining soup/milk mix over the top
cover with foil and bake at 350/375 for at least 45 minutes
take foil off, see how the chicken's doing, and cook a little longer if you need to.

Feta Chicken

2 -4 chicken breasts, pounded thin
feta cheese
fresh basil leaves
2 T butter
bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 375. Place a chunk of feta on a chicken breast, cover with the basil leaf and roll it up (secure with a tooth pick). Roll the breast in bread crumbs and place in a baking dish. When all of the breasts have been prepared, melt the butter and drizzle ontop of each breast.

Bake at 375 for 30 minutes or until the breasts are done.

I serve this with a greek salad and rice pilaf - its a quick and easy dinner.

Crumbed Chicken
serves 2
1/2 lb chicken breasts, cut into same sized strips
4-8 whole wheat crackers (depends on size of strips and crackers)
1 lemon or orange
zest from above mentioned fruit
2 garlic, minced
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
wax paper (optional, makes clean up easier)

In a small bowl (cup or so), mix the juice from half of the fruit, mustard, and soy sauce. (It should be thick.)

In a plastic bag with hands or a rolling pin crush crackers into crumbs. In a pan lined with wax paper mix together crumbs, cirtus zest, and garlic.

Dredge chicken strips in liquid, and then pat in crumb mixture to coat and place on a lightly oiled baking sheet.

Bake at 350 minutes for 10 minutes, flip chicken, and continue baking about 10-15 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked. (I don't have the time written down, I just cut a piece to check.)

I usually have it with vegetables of some sort and a salad.

Chicken Stir Fry

This is quick and easy and tastes great. You can serve it with rice or noodles for a complete meal.

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts sliced thinly
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 cup sliced onion
1 cup sliced celery
1 cup sliced carrots
2 cups broccoli florets
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. teriaki sauce
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Heat oil in a large wok or frying pan. Cook chicken strips for about 6 to 7 minutes or until they are slightly browned. Add all veggies but mushrooms and peas. Cook on medium-high heat, stirring frequently until veggies are just tender-crisp. Add remaining ingredients and continuing to stir, cook for another 4 to 5 minutes. Makes 5 good sized servings.

Chicken Parmigiana

2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Italian dried bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
3/4 (16 oz.) jar spaghetti sauce (or homemade)
2 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dip chicken into egg, then the bread crumbs. Place chicken on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake for 40 minutes. Pour 1/2 of the spaghetti sauce into a 9x13 baking dish. Add the chicken and pour on the remaining sauce. Sprinkle mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses on top and bake in the oven about 20 minutes.

Serve with pasta, salad and garlic bread.


Chicken Scaloppini with Lemon Basil

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt and pepper, to taste
butter or margarine
olive oil
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup lemon basil
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (or 1/4 teaspoon dried)
2 teaspoon fresh minced parsley
lemon basil leaves
lemon slices

Place chicken pieces between sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a mallet until 1/4 inch thick. Dredge each piece with salt and pepper.

In large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon each butter and oil. When butter is melted, add as many chicken pieces as will fit without crowding and cook quickly for a minute or two on each side, or until chicken loses its pinkness inside. Remove chicken pieces to a hot platter and keep warm.

Cook rest of chicken pieces, adding more butter and oil as needed and remove to a warm platter. (May use 200 F oven.) Add wine and lemon juice to pan and cook over medium heat, stirring to blend in browned bits and juices. Boil until reduced by about half. Add cream, lemon basil, thyme, and parsley, heat until sauce thickens slightly.

Pour any juices that collected on the chicken meat platter into the skillet. Taste sauce for seasoning, adding salt and pepper if needed. Pour sauce over chicken and garnish with lemon basil leaves and lemon slices. Serve over rice or buttered noodles.

My husband loves it when I fix this. JMediger gave me the recipe.

Sometimes too I will cut up boneless, skinless chicken breasts into bite size pieces. I'll heat oil in the pan with a red chili and then remove the chili and add the battered chicken and brown it and then finish cooking them in the oven and then add them to the sauce.


Recipe from JMediger on www.discusscooking.com
Dip in egg - then flour
Brown on each side
Place in single layer in greased baking dish

3/4 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Pineapple Juice
1/4 Cup White Vinegar
3/4 Cup Ketchup
1 tsp Soy Sauce
1 1/2 tsp salt

Combine all in sauce pan and bring to soft boil.
Spread over chicken wings and top with crushed pineapple if you like.
Cover and bake for 40 - 45 min. @ 350.

I usually let the chicken wings set after I dip them while I do the sauce. The batter seems to stay better when I brown them.

Doubled, this will cover about 3 lbs of wings that have been halved (wing and "drummie" separated) so I would think the single recipe would cover your 6 thighs (about 1 lb?).

Toss chicken pieces in olive oil and a package of Zesty Italian dressing mix. Do the same with potato pieces, if you wish. If you have a sweet red pepper, cut some into strips and scatter on top. Place in sprayed baking pan and roast in oven at 350 until done.
Place chicken in sprayed baking dish. Add chunked potatoes and pepper strips, if you wish. Season with S&P (easy on the salt) and spread a can of Golden Mushroom soup over the top. *opt...top with thinly sliced tomato.* Cover loosely and cook in 350 oven until chicken and potatoes are tender. Remove foil last 15 minutes to crisp up.

We get by with a little help from our friends
