Need some chicken ideas please

Last week I cooked a simple curry, (curry paste, onions Chicken breast, tomatoes) that I just put in the fridge in a big pan and just heated some up whenever I wanted to, to pour over rice.

I wanna make something similiar but nicer tommorow. I got a kilo of chicken breast ready to go, give me something simple to make that would last me the whole week, maybe some sort of curry or other chicken in a sauce dish.

Totaly clueless when it comes to cooking thx in advance

If you like Terriyaki Sauce this is good. You will probably need to cut it in at least half...or maybe even just make a fourth as this is a big batch.
1 quart water if desired

Add your chicken and serve over rice or pasta.

You can close your eyes to the things you do not want to see, but you can't close your heart to the things you do not want to feel.

Saute some chopped green peppers, onions and garlic, add tomato sauce with fresh or dried basil and/or oregano, add cooked chicken cut into 1-inch pieces, serve over any small pasta shape.

I'll pm you one of our favorites...
might not work for this time but next time you have chicken breasts you should give it a try. It's
easy and really good.

Poach the breasts in a thin tomato based sauce with artichokes, white wine, onion, capers and calamatta olives. Maybe even some asparagus. Add some red pepper flakes for a little heat. Serve over white rice or pasta, or eat by itself. Works best with thighs/legs, but I've made it with breasts too. Just keep an eye on the internal temp. It won't overcook as fast as other cooking methods though.

Put pieces from one chicken in a bowl with 3 tbls olive oil and a package of onion soup mix or Italian drressing mix. Place on foil lined baking sheet, sprinkle with paprika, and place uncovered in a 350 oven for about one hour. Turn pieces about half way through.
Roast a few quartered potatoes with it, if you wish.

Add some coconut milk to your curry and some grilled pineapple chunks, serve over spiced rice (caramelize some onions, add your uncooked rice and saute until browned a bit, add water, whole cloves, and sticks of cinnamon...not too much of either and be sure to count your cloves so you can remove them all). Chunk some sweet potatoes too in this if you like them.
