Poultry Favorites!

Chicken (to me) is tricky! It can get dried out so easy, but there are SO many things you can do with it! What are some of your family favorites?!

Italian Chicken in White Wine sauce

This was something I just made up with what I had Smile

Serves 1.5 (Me and DS haha!)
Ingredients
Chicken breast- I took one large breast and cut it in half length wise; I'd suggest this to ensure it doesn't get overcooked.
Half a stick of butter
Italian Dressing
Dry white wine- I just used a dry vermouth
medium frying pan
seasonings

Prepare
*Place butter, italian dressing, and wine in pan and set to a medium heat. (aprox. measurements: Italian dressing 1/4 c./ wine 1/4 c.) my chicken was almost submerged in my sauce
*Season raw chicken to taste (I used a season all salt/pepper/garlic/onion mix)
*Once butter is melted place chicken in pan and cook until chicken is finished (about 20 minutes depending on thickness of pieces

I served this with cheesy mashed potatoes and mixed veggies
My 15 month old even enjoyed this!

One of my favorite things to make with chicken is "foil packets".

You take your chicken, spices, veggies, and whatever else you want. Put it on a LARGE piece of tinfoil and fold it up like a packet. Bake it at 400 degrees until done. I like mexican (taco seasoning, onions, and peppers) or chinese (soy sauce, ginger, and veggies over rice). Yum Yum!! And they are ususally always moist. Oh and the best part? They take 5-10 minutes (10 minutes if you have to chop veggies) and there is almost no clean up.

Chicken Salad

Chicken Salad

This one is SUPER easy.

I usually made this when I had left over chicken.

Chicken
Onion
Celery
Mayo/Miracle Whip
salt/pepper

Shred your cold chicken. Chop onion and celery. Mix together with mayo or miracle whip and add salt and pepper to taste! Serve on bread, crackers, pitas!

This one is a GREAT lunch one because you can just make up a single batch or you can make it for dinner and mix it with cold pasta for a yummy summer dish!

I put a 3 pound bag of boneless skinless chicken breasts and a little chicken stock in the crockpot and cook all day on low. When the chicken starts falling apart I shred it and divide it into freezer bags and freeze it. It can be used in lots of different dishes, such as enchiladas, BBQ chicken sandwiches, creamed chicken, chicken soup, etc.

Here are a couple super easy chicken dishes we enjoy:

Easy Chicken Bake

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, diced
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/3 cup sour cream
1 bag frozen mixed veggies, thawed
1 box chicken stove top stuffing

Spray 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray. Mic chicken, soup, sour cream, and veggies and spread in pan. Prepare stuffing according to box directions and spread over top. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.

Chicken and Stuffing

Spray crockpot with cooking spray. Put 1 pound of boneless skinless chicken breasts in crockpot. Mix a box of stove top stuffing, a can of cream of chicken soup, and 1/2 cup water together and spread over chicken. Cook on low 6-8 hours.

Chicken Parmesan

disclaimer: I made these up haha and they came out GREAT!!

Ingredients:
Chicken Breast (mine were pre-cut into in 5-6 inch strips, about 1/2 thick at best)
Spaghetti sauce
noodles
Mozerrella Cheese
Parmesan Cheese
Breadcrumbs
Seasonings (S&P, oregano, basil, garlic, onion)
Butter

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350º while you prepare chicken

-In two containers, melt butter, and put dry breadcrumbs and seasonings (I went heavy on the oregano and basil, and I'm glad I did! YUM!)
-Dip chicken strip in butter first, coat well
-Then dip chicken in seasonings/breadcrumbs coat both sides well. Place on cookie sheet (I sprayed my cookie sheet with a little bit of butter spray)

once all the strips are dipped; place in oven. I set the timer for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes they could have been served; ALWAYS check chicken- I just cut the thickest piece to check and it was done.

At that point I prepared my spaghetti.

Once my spaghetti was cooking, I took out my chicken and put a spoonful of sauce on each piece and topped with Mozzarella/Parmesan cheese and finished baking till cheese was melty.

These weren't overly crunchy but good enough for me!!! Smile The chicken was SO moist, thank you butter dip hahahah!! I served this with a sourdough bread and enjoyed every stinkin' bite! Smile

This my absolute favorite roast chicken recipe it's so easy it just takes forethought!

4t salt
2t paprika
1t onion powder
1t dried thyme
1t pepper
1/2t cayenne
1/2 t garlic powder
2 onions quartered
2 (4lb) chickens or 1 7/8 lb chicken

In a small bowl mix spices together to create a rub. Remove and discard giblets from Chicken. Rinse and pat dry chicken. Rub chicken(s) inside & out with spice mixture. Place onion in cavity of chicken. Place chicken(s) in resealable bag or wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Place in refrigerator overnight or at least 4-6 hours.
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. (120degrees Celsius)
Put chicken(s) in roasting pan and bake uncovered for 5 hours or until internal temp. is 180 degrees and let chicken(s) stand for 10min before carving.

**I use one 7lb chicken and i didn't have onion powder or cayenne and it still turned out awesome**

Enjoy!
