What is your favorite chicken breast recipe?

I that is random, but I cook the same few Chicken breast recipes all the time and it's getting a bit redundant. I'd like to expand my recipe box with more options. Chicken Alfredo and Parmesan Chicken are two classics, but please give me all you got!

If there were a chicken dish that would be most likely to make me jump off the veggie bandwagon it might be chicken marsalla.

Chicken swiss - chicken, cream of chicken soup, slices of swiss cheese, stuffing mix and a bit of butter
I have the actual recipe if you want it.

Cream of chicken soup, chicken broth, frozen mixed veggies, uncooked rice mixed all together, lay chicken breast on top and bake. Then when it's almost done put cheddar cheese on the chicken and then finish baking. It's a Campbell's Soup recipe so it'd be on their website. It's one of my faves and so easy because only the chicken needs thawed.

I will pass some on when I'm not on my phone...I am a chickenaholic. It's the main reason I could never go completely vegetarian. I mostly use whole or dark meat but I have some good recipes that can use either.

I don't have links to share, but two things I love and love to make are:

Mediterranean CousCous (cooked chicken chunks, couscous, grape tomatoes, kalamata olives, feta, garlic, and lightly steamed broccoli all mixed together with some olive oil and balsamic vinegar)

Homemade grilled chicken Caesar salad (dressing: 3-4 anchovies, 3-4 crushed cloves of garlic, big serving-spoonful plop of mayo, same amount of mustard, drizzle of olive oil, half a lemon, a few dashes of Worchestershire sauce, and of course salt & pepper to taste) Toss with romaine lettuce, grilled chicken, croutons, and parmesan.

Lately I've also been really into "super salads" for dinner. Pan saute a whole bunch of chicken and cut it up into chunks and also chop up a bunch of your favorite salad ingredients. Then you can just throw it together for fresh dinner several nights in a row--that's what I did when DH was out of town for 10 days and it was awesome! I even cheated by getting prechopped salad add-ins to make it extra simple. I hate cooking for just me.

i made this one tonight and it was delicious!! I baked it instead of fried, and i used half the butter it called for and it was still too much going to use even less next time.

Ingredients

* 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded to 1/4 inch thickness
* 1 egg, beaten
* 2/3 cup dry bread crumbs
* 2 tablespoons olive oil
* 1 lime, juiced
* 6 tablespoons butter
* 1 teaspoon minced fresh chives
* 1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed

Directions

1. Coat chicken breasts with egg, and dip in bread crumbs. Place on a wire rack, and allow to dry for about 10 minutes.
2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place chicken into the skillet, and fry for 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Remove to a platter, and keep warm.
3. Drain grease from the skillet, and squeeze in lime juice. Cook over low heat until it boils. Add butter, and stir until melted. Season with chives and dill. Spoon sauce over chicken, and serve immediately.
