We eat so much chicken, I'm surprised we aren't clucking instead of talking! Since we haven't sprouted feathers yet, I guess I'm not too worried. Gotta run, though...it's time for our feed. I meant food...
Simple and delicious combination of bacon, cheese and chicken.
I made it up myself but it goes really nicely served with 'Ainsley Harriott's' Lemon Couscous and roasted Mediterranean vegetables. A real mixture of flavours.
I always poached chicken when I needed cooked for a recipe -- and I never liked the way it came out. I was watching Ina's show on the Food Network last weekend and this is how she cooks her chicken for recipes. I tried it and it was the most moist chicken I have ever had. I used it in chicken noodle soup -- YUM!!! The recipe can be increased or decreased depending on how much cooked chicken you need. UPDATE 7/31/07 -- I tried this method on boneless, skinless chicken breasts and it worked great -- I baked for about 35 minutes and it was cooked perfectly!
As I have stated before I mostly gather, modify and review recipes instead of designing them and this is one of those recipes. The recipe came from LeighDear at LowCarbFriends.com and is one I did not modify at all. It is a REALLY good dish that my family loves and has been getting great reviews. Thanks for the great recipe Leigh!
My friend shared this recipe with me, and I was so reluctant because I don't even like Doritos, but she insisted I try it, and my whole family LOVED it. It is moist and has such a great flavor and even smells yummy cooking! Now I make it often. I pound the breast to flatten them and make them cook faster.
This is not at all difficult to make --- although you can use uncooked bacon strips I prefer to semi-cook the bacon in the oven first just to release some fat but do not cook until crisp or wrapping it around the chicken will be impossible --- the chicken may be prepared up to one day in advance, which makes this great dinner party food, just cover refrigerate and mix up the sauce when ready to bake :)
I took a copycat Macaroni Grill recipe and adapted it to have "Carino's ingredients" (except for mushrooms, which I don't care for, but you could add them with the onions, if desired). My friends and I, who are all Carino's Chicken Scallopini freaks LOVED this! Hope you do, too!
This is, hands-down, the best roast chicken I've ever had. I'm even willing to go toe-to-toe with my mom on this one. Not only is it moist and flavorful, but the fennel really adds a mellow dimension to the dish that is so different and just tasty. Even my boyfriend who hates fennel can polish this off. From Bon Appetit, October 2003.
This recipe yields jucy, succulent chicken covered in a crispy crust that is not at all greasy. There is almost as much crust as there is chicken! Using vegetable shortening rather than oil gives the crust a snappy crispness. Use some of the chicken bits, removed from the oil, to make my Cream Gravy recipe!
Now, to me this really isn't a recipe, but I was telling a friend how I make shredded chicken for recipes and she said I should post it. It always comes out tender, and has frozen well for me. I usually make double at once for oamc since it is so easy.
I started making this recipe years ago. It was probabley the first "out of my comfort zone" recipe I had ever tried and my family LOVED it. I actually think this recipe is better then the restaurant dish. On the mexi-ranch dressing I add much more cumin, chili powder, and dill weed then the recipe calls for so just keep mixing until you have the kind of flavor you desire.
This is the recipe my Mom and I have made for years. I don't know where it originally came from, just that everyone seems to love it- I did growing up - and now my whole family does (always a plus to find a quick meal that my kids like that my hubby and I can enjoy eating too!!) Easy to round out with a green salad or veggie and roll or bread on the side. I have made this in a pinch for friends and they always rave thinking it took more time than it did to prepare. ;) Mushrooms are a great addition, simply add them in when adding the onions. I also like to stir in sautéed asparagus sometimes or frozen peas. ;)
