Easy Chicken recipes??

yellow rice and chicken is really easy and tasty. I cut up the chicken and brown it in olive oil and garlic, then follow the directions on the bag for the rice, I use Vigo yellow rice. I usually add a quarter cup more water than the bag calls for b/c I add the chicken in with the rice. Once the chicken is browned, I bring the water for the rice to a boil, add the rice and stir while boiling for 1 minute, then I add the chicken, I sometimes add peas and/or pimentos as well, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 25 minutes. While the rice/chicken is cooking, you can also heat a can of black beans to go along with it. Very, very tasty.

Mix ranch and sour cream in one bowl. Mix Italian bread crumbs and parmesan cheese in another bowl. Dry chicken and dip in ranch and then crumbs. Drizzle with butter. Bake at 350 for 20-30 min depending on the size of chicken you use. This is always a favorite.

Dip chicken tenders in melted butter, then in crushed Ritz crackers. You can crush them in the food processor or just by hand for bigger pieces. My 2 year old loves this!
Drizzle the left over butter on top and bake at 350 for 20-25 min.

Well this is pretty simple. I use the alfredo sauce by Prego. I bread the chicken breast than bake until chicken is almost done (about 10 minutes before). Just pour the alfredo sauce on top, add shredded cheese and finish cooking. Pretty simple and good.

Chicken Tortellini- You will need: chicken, Italian dressing, tortellini or fettuccine noodles, canned Alfredo sauce, and bag of frozen vegetables (usually broccoli or peas work the best).
Take the boneless, skinless chicken breasts or tenders (how ever many you feel like) and fry them in a pan with Italian dressing. While those are cooking, get some fettuccine or tortellini noodles cooking in a medium saucepan and the Alfredo sauce warming in a small pan. Combine cooked noodles and sauce, put the chicken on the top and veggies on the side. Really yummy and usually doesn't take more than 20 minutes (30 minutes if chicken was frozen when you tossed it in the pan).

for something to cook all day, put boneless skinless chicken breasts in crock pot w/ 2 1/2 cups salsa, corn, kidney beans, black beans, pinto beans, and 1 chopped green bell pepper, (you can omit any of the extra beans, corn, or bell pepper, just add whatever sounds good). Let cook in crock pot for up to 8 hours, just adjust the heat temp. to your time, (shorter times, lower heat settings, longer time, higher heat). You can use in tortillas, over salad, on nachos, in a bowl w/ some sour cream and cheese on top, over rice.... Very versatile. I love having this around all the time.
For something fast to make, bake boneless skinless chicken breasts in pan on stovetop w/ some olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and some italian seasoning. Goes well w/ noodles, I normally do butter noodles, where I cook any type of pasta I have, add some butter, salt, pepper, and italian seasoning.
4 Cheese Ranch Chicken
1. Boneless skinless chicken breasts
2. Kraft 3 Cheese Ranch salad dressing
3. Parmesano Reggiano shredded cheese
Heat oven to 350º, place breasts on non-stick foil lined cookie sheet. Wipe breasts with paper towel to dry. Spread 3 cheese ranch on chicken, and sprinkle with parmesano reggiano. Bake for 30-45 minutes, until chicken is cooked and golden brown.
Very yummy, easy and a crowd pleaser!
I make a great Chicken Polenta dish that my kids just adore! (and it's inexpensive too)
1. Take a log of polenta and freeze it the night before (this makes it easier to crumble)
2. In a large saucepan, combine crumbled polenta, 1L box of chicken stock, 1pkg of boneless skinless chicken breast, 1 large onion chopped (lightly sauteed in olive oil and butter), 1 clove of garlic minced, 1 cup of parmesano-reggiano.
3. Heat until desired temperature is reached, and cheese has melted
4. Arrange on plate and top with favorite spaghetti sauce (heated)
The whole dish takes about 15 minutes to cook, and costs around $10-$15. It's a favorite of ours and is VERY filling!!

Chicken and Vegetables
2 large chicken breasts
1 bag of sugar snap pea frozen veggie mix
1 can of stewed tomatoes
1 cup of brown rice or a package of Rice-a-Roni rice pilaf
garlic powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper, salt.
Teriyaki, worcestershire, or whatever you have.
I usually cook the chicken in a frying pan in just a tiny bit, a teaspoon and a half or so, of canola oil, above seasonings, and some teriyaki, worcestershire, or whatever I happen to have that will make it yummy. I cut up the chicken while I'm cooking it, but you can do whatever, just have it end up in 1/2 inch pieces or so. After the chicken is all the way done, I add the veggies, stewed tomatoes, and season again a little bit, and cook until bubbling, then cover and simmer for about 20 minutes. Make the rice as directed, and serve on top of the rice! It's really good, and really pretty healthy, if you stay low on the oils and butter---and it's just as good if you do that too!

Chicken and Rice Soup
1 1/2 to 2 cups of long grain rice, depending on whether you use chicken breasts (1 1/2) or a whole chicken (2).
3/4 (or so) of the smaller box of Swanson's chicken broth
1/2 a stick of butter or margarine
2 or 3 large chicken breasts, or a whole chicken if you like dark meat!
Salt and pepper to taste.
Boil the chicken in, probably, your largest pot. Just the fill the pot up between 1/2 and 3/4 of the way with water, add the butter and the chicken, and boil until done! Once that's finished, cut up the chicken into pieces, however big or small you desire, and put back into the broth it was boiled in. Add rice and Swanson broth, and salt and pepper (I always use at least a couple of teaspoons of salt--I have never oversalted, it's somewhat hard to, but I am a salt fan--just however you like it), bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. If, once it's done, it seems that the rice is done, but has soaked up too much of the broth, just go ahead and pour some more of the Swanson's broth in there until it's of a consistency you like. This is an easy, inexpensive dish that is filling, delicious, and can feed a whole family for a couple of days!

Cheesy Chicken Cups (my kids think they are cupcakes)
1 can buttermilk biscuts (10)
1 coooked chicken breast, cut into small pieces ---I used canned chicken breast instead, tastes the same and for working moms its super fast
1 can cream of chicken soup
2/3 cup fat free shredded cheese
1 tsp parsley flakes (i omit b/c of picky kids)
1/2 tsp black pepper
A dash of garlic powder
Place biscuits in muffin pan, Press into holes and up side to form ups
In bowl combine chicken, soup, cheese and spices..Mix well
Spoon evenly into cups..don't fill to the top b/c the biscuts will rise then the mix will overflow
Bake at 400 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.
I also sprinkle a bit of cheese on top of the mix.
***I have also switched this up and used tuna instead of chicken and cream of mushroom instead of cream of chicken......
Natalie - posted on 11/04/2008
My husband and I like to throw a whole chicken (you can use boneless breasts, too, I'm sure) into the crock pot with a can of cream of chicken, lemon juice, a can of cream of mushroom, red potatoes, baby carrots, and spices like lemon pepper, oregano, black pepper, and pretty much whatever sounds good. It seriously takes like 5 minutes to throw together (we don't measure anything, we just do what we think looks good) and cook it on high for about four hours, or low for 10-12. It feeds us for a week!

All-in-One Box Dinners
1 pound chicken breasts, about 3 large 4 small breasts (you can get a bag of skinless boneless chicken breasts for a reasonable price, but its not really that hard to skin and de-bone breasts which will save you a good bit of money)
1 small can cream of mushroom soup (or cream of chicken, any variety of creamy soup works but make sure the flavor is one you enjoy because it will be a main taste in this meal--my family likes chicken, mushroom, and celery but cheese and broccoli struck out)
1/2 cup milk
1 box stuffing mix (any brand, any variety- I use store brands and whatever kind comes to my hand first)
1 T. butter or margarine
1/4 c. boiled water (micro waving the water and butter is convenient - more water for softer stuffing)
Shredded cheese optional, for appearance
Prepare a 9x13 casserole dish with cooking spray. Mix milk and soup thoroughly in bottom of dish, place raw, cleaned, de-boned and de-skinned chicken breast in soup mixture, mixture should cover chicken just slightly. In a separate bowl mix water and butter gradually with stuffing mix, stir until moist, put stuffing on top of chicken.
Cover with aluminum foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until chicken is done (use a meat thermometer to be sure). Remove foil. Add cheese if desired, and wait until melted, or place back in oven until crispy.

i'm not one for recipes.... i usually just whip up something on my own.. but there are tons of ideas on that site. i've used and changed many of them.
heres one.... i kinda stole it from the site and changed it a bit...
(oh ya.. and the chicken brushetta bake is amazing!! i dont cube my chicken though.. i just pan fry it until brown first and stick it in the baking dish whole)
if you like shake n bake you can coat chicken breasts in whichever kind of shake n bake you like... bake off until 180 degrees internal temp
while the chicken is baking, great a bunch (sorry i dont do the measuring thing too well!) of mozzarella chz.
also while the chicken is baking take a can or two (depending on how much chicken you're making... i cook for 6 grownups and a baby every day so i usually use about 8-10 chicken breasts and 2 cans) of your favorite cream soup! i use campbells cream of broccoli or cream of asparagus. and empty the cans into a med-large saucepan. fill the two cans with water (you can add a little milk if you're so inclined!) stir until the soup is.... well... soup!
once the chicken is done baking, pour the soup over the chicken and sprinkle the chz over the whole thing! stick it back in the oven to melt the cheeze.. its yummy... if you want you can steam some broccoli and or cauliflower and put in the pan with the chicken before you put on the soup and cheese. its so yummmyyyyy! i think i'm going to take out some chicken and make it tomorrow!

2 cooked chicken breasts cut in small pieces
1 cup frozen veggies
1 can cream of potato soup

Got a crockpot? Throw in enough boneless chicken breast for the family. Add a cup of water or 2. Throw in some chopped onion (even the dried "seasoning" kind works), salt & pepper and any other seasoning you like. Cover and let it cook on low all day or on high for a few hours. Chicken comes out juicy, falling apart and yummy.

Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas
2 C Chopped Cooked Chicken
1 Can Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
8 Flour Tortillas or Corn if you like those better
1 Can Chili or Mexican Flavored Stewed Tomatoes, UNDRAINED
1 Cup Mexican Style Shredded Cheese
Chopped Onions, if desired
And Salsa, Sour Cream, Chives, Black Olives, Guacamole, or whatever garnishes you like to add.
PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Combine chicken and soup; spoon evenly down centers of tortillas. Roll up.
PLACE, seam-sides down, in 13x9-inch baking dish; top with tomatoes and cheese. Cover with aluminum foil.
BAKE 30 to 35 min. or until cheese is melted and enchiladas are heated through, removing the foil after 20 min.
The great thing about Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas is that it still tastes delicious even after it's been frozen.
I like to make double the quantity and freeze half, letting it cool off first, then double wrapping it tightly in aluminum foil or a large plastic freezer bag.
To defrost simply place it in the fridge overnight and reheat it in a 350ºF oven until the inside is soft and the outside lightly browned.
