I can't decide if my favorite part of this dish is the sweet taste of the orange marmalade mixed with the Asian flavors of the soy and honey with a bite of juicy chicken or if it's a spoonful of rice that cooks so nicely under the chicken, capturing the savory juices, and crispy pieces along the sides of the pan. Which ever part you like best, this is a winner all around. It's just as good reheated too!
A delicious, fragrant broiled (or grilled) cornish hen which derives its glaze from apple jelly, apple cider and five-spice powder. Recipe from Weight Watchers - 7 points per 1/2 hen and 1/2 tbsp. glaze. You can substitute 1 1/2 pounds skinned chicken drumsticks for the Cornish Hens - just increase the cooking time by an additional 5-10 minutes and deduct 2 points per serving.
This is perfect for those nights you need a quick dinner or when you have the desire for yummy chinese (minus the grease!) I serve this over a bed of basmati rice and steamed broccoli. So far everyone who has eaten this meal has told me that I MUST blog it so ta-da! I hope you and your family enjoy as much as me and mine do.

Taken from hawaiinewsnow.com. Time to marinate IS NOT included in prep/cook time. Posted for ZWT. ETA: I have now made this chicken, tho I used boneless skinless breasts, as it is what I had on hand. The Cap'n Crunch cereal makes a tasty breading, and the marinade imparts a nice underlying flavor.
This is a recipe from the Luau restaurant in Memphis TN from the 60's&70's. The Luau was a polynesian restraunt with a tropical themed decor. Think Mai Tai's and cheesy Hawaiian boxed in music. But to us Memphians and the yearly prom goers, it was an escape! Anyway this dish is easy and so soul satisfying.
This is like the lemon chicken you get from your Chinese take-out place. The egg, cornstarch, and baking powder coating is extra light and crispy. No msg or flour involved! And remember, Zaar calculates fat and calories from the ingredient list...you won't consume all the oil listed in the recipe! Note: Marinating time is included in prep time.
It can be any pieces of chicken. I tried it with boneless chicken breasts. You may adapt the cooking time. To make it low-sodium you may omit the salt and celery salt. Maybe celery seeds would be great.
Picatta has never been simpler to make. Using cubed chicken makes it easy, economical, and diner friendly. This recipe is great served over pasta along with some garlic bread for a wonderfully elegant dinner. You can use veal or shrimp in place of the chicken if you like.
I love this meal for it's ease and down home goodness. You can make this one dish meal in less than 30 minutes. It's pretty too! You could substitute chopped carrots for the red pepper if you'd prefer. It reminds me of chicken pot pie without the 'pie'. Comfort! It makes A LOT so you can serve half of it and freeze the other half for a quick dinner some other night.

If you enjoy spice, go ahead and throw some in!! This recipe is also versatile in terms of what veggies you like. Have fun with it. :)
This is a basic recipe that every cook should know how to make. My family loves this with mashed potatoes and gravy. When all 4 of my kids lived at home I would often roast 3 chicken at a time, so there would be leftovers for chicken pie, sandwiches, or Ceasar Salad. Try different combinations or amounts of the herbs and spices, we tend to like our food highly seasoned.
Blasting with high heat will shrink the skin and seal in all the juices to create an extremely moist and tender chicken with lovely crispy skin - and it will be on your table in about an hour. This method will also work with a larger chicken, but cooking time will need to be increased. You may adjust all seasonings to taste. If you are not a lemon lover, then you may omit the lemon juice. You really can use whatever seasoning that you like for this. I like to use seasoned salt. Make certain to use a fork and poke holes all over in the lemon, then place it into the cavity of the chicken. Roast roast as stated. The chicken with be moist and have a faint lemon flavor.
