    I have some chicken breasts, thawed and ready for me to cook I just don't know what to do with them. Mom suggested breading them and frying, but I don't care much for breaded anything let alone chicken(unless it is an arby's sandwich or a Wendy's Spicy Chicken, then I just want to enjoy, and not see the meat). As of the moment the only idea I have is dice it up, fry it on a pan in some butter and make some pasta and throw the chicken in a tomato sauce. But I've never cared for chicken in tomato sauce much. I love to take the Lipton Rice Sides things and make one, throw some diced up chicken in it and its a good meal. But we don't have any of them and I failed to find them at the grocery store today. What do you do with chicken? I have to work with what I have here, I like to cook, and I want something more than just chicken cooked up in a pan with some green beans on the side(have those as well, haha). Help asap please, I'm hungry :haha:

    garlic chicken could work, don't eat cheap so that portion is out. But cook up some chicken in olive oil and garlic, serve over buttered linguine that could work.

    I lightly cook it in some butter for a bit, drain out the butter and chicky juice, then drown it in hot wing sauce, let it simmer for about 45 miinutes or so on low heat,,mmmmmmmm,,boneless hotwing type chicken.

    Mushroom soup, poured into a casserole dish. Mix in dried onion soup mix. Dip breasts in melted butter. Place enough uncooked rice in the dish to cover the bottom of the dish. Now place breasts on top of rice. Cook for 90 minutes at 350. This is the ONLY way I will eat mushroom soup!!!!!

    yes steve I'm a very picky eater. Maybe its why I am so thin? who knows.


    I ended up going with the first suggestion. I'm a lover of garlic and use it a lot when I cook. I coated the bottom of the pan with olive oil, threw in a good bit of wet minced garlic, coated it all in oregano and let it simmer a bit. Diced the chicken, threw that into the same pan. cooked it thoroughly. Made some linguine, drained the chicken in a strainer, through it on top of the pasta with some butter. It was quite good but dry. Next time I need a sauce to go with it. I'll have to work on that. Tomato sauce would be far too easy, I think it deserves a nice cream sauce.

    That sounds AMAZING!!

    I dislike mushroom soup, but I also like it in this sausage caserole my mom makes. It sounds simular to that chicken one, but it calls for hot italian sausage, peppers and some other stuff. mmmmm

    One of my favorite way to cook game birds (wild turkey, geese, ducks, etc.) is to marinate it for a day or two in italian salad dressing and then grill it. I've never tried it with chicken but with more flavorful birds like duck and goose its one of my favorites so I'm sure it would be good with yardbird too. I usually eat rice with it, but I really like rice and will eat it with damn near any kind of meat.

    "Kinda" means you eat meat sometimes and are a hypocrite. Talk to Cams, now there's a vegetarian for you...

    My wife likes to marinade them in Italian dressing and then bake them.

    Another good way she cooks them up is to...

    1) make a bowl of eggs 'n' milk
    2) in another bowl put a whole tube of crushed saltine crackers with lots of pepper and paprika.
    3) dip chicken in egg 'n' milk mix, roll in cracker/seasoning mix
    4) bake in greased glass pan in the oven 'till done (don't turn it).

    How much of all this junk you need depends on how much chicken you have... if you want I can get specific amounts of ingredients for how much chicken ya got. In any case, the end result is the bomb... the crackers-outside part is kinda crispy but the inside is super tender. mmmmmmmmm yummy! :thumb:
