Readers Respond: Favorite Chicken Ideas

Responses: 8


Updated February 19, 2010

Chicken can be the basis for so many easy, tasty meals! What are your favorite easy ways to prepare chicken? From the grill, stovetop, oven, or crockpot, share your ideas for great, easy chicken!


At the moment I am very much addicted to something I was missing: chicken nuggets (though I read another version above with ground pork scratchings which I am also raring to try) I cut skinless chickenbreast into large chunks, about 6 chucks in a single breast. Roll these in beaten egg and then through very finely ground flaxseed with herbs and spices to taste (I use thyme, salt, pepper, garlic powder, chilly powder and cayenne pepper) These I then place on snackpaper in the middle of my oven, as hot as it will go and leave them for 20 minutes os so, less if you make the nuggies smaller. GORGEOUS!!

Millionaire Chicken Salad.

I 'borrowed' this recipe from Rachael Ray but it is one of my favorites. The crunch of the cabbage + the spice of the ginger and other ingredients is just plain good. And, it makes a number of good size servings. Here's the link. http://www.rachaelraymag.com/Recipes/rachael-ray-magazine-recipe-search/rachael-ray-30-minute-meals/millionaire-rotisserie-chicken-salad

Kick'in Ccicken

- boneless breasts or tenders I capful "Simply Orange " juice Dash or two of olive oil pinch of brown sugar or sugar free brown salt and pepper Mix all the ingredients in a zip lock style bag and put in fridge to marry one hour or overnight. Grill on indoor or oudoor grill till done to your likeness. Serve with riced veggies of choice that a buttered well and salted or seasoned with your favorite herbs or spices.

Chicken With Mustard Cream Sauce

My suggestion is to use boneless skinless chicken thighs. Cut them up into bite side pieces. Brown in butter in batches to avoid overcrowding. Typically we estimate 1.5-2.0 thighs per person depending on size and appetite. Reserve Chicken to a plate covered with foil to keep warm. Deglaze the pan (carefully- shut flame off initially) with brandy and mix all the brown bits around then restart the flame (carefully - if concerned add chicken broth now to dilute the alcohol and flammability will be safely managed) as it begins to evaporate add 1.5-2tbls of dijon mustard and mix. As mustard is incorporated add 1/2-3/4 a cup of heavy cream and continue to stir- raise heat to begin reducing the overall liquid volume this will allow the cream to thicken. When the cream has been thickened you can then thin it back out with 1/4 cup increments of chicken broth. Allowing it to return to a boil. As the sauce thickens add salt & pepper to taste. Then return the chicken to the pan to reheat

Shake and Bake Style Chicken

This is so easy and really tasty. I take boneless/skinless chicken breasts, dip them in an egg wash, then coat them with pork rind crumbs (ground in food processor). I usually parmesan cheese to the crumbs and whatever seasonings I feel like at the time. Bake at 375 for about a half hour- yummy!

Thunder Thighs

Combine 1/3C low sodium soy sauce and 1/3C Siriacha style hot sauce (found in the Asian section of your grocery). Pour in 1 gal freezer bag with 8 bone-in chicken thighs (or 16-20 wings) and marinate for at least 4 hours or overnight, turning occasionally to insure an even marinade. Grill over medium hot charcoal until juices run clear and skin is crispy. These are pretty spicy so if you don't like as much heat, back off on the siriacha sauce. Since you already have the grill going, brush some veggies with the excess marinade & grill them too. Yummm!
